Mini Facelift Surgery
More and more people are requesting a facelift procedure at a younger age, getting ahead of the aging process. Instead of waiting to have a facelift after the facial skin and tissues are drooping, younger patients are proactively maintaining a youthful appearance. A mini facelift surgery is an option we offer at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery to give a rejuvenated appearance to the face for patients who do not require or desire a complete facelift procedure.
What Is a Mini Facelift?
The first signs of aging can be seen in the midface, with deeper smile lines around the nose and mouth and a slight sagging in the cheeks. A mini facelift is a less invasive option than a traditional facelift. It gives the midface a lift with minimal recovery and downtime after the procedure. Some mini facelifts are referred to as a “weekend facelift,” with a smaller incision and scar to promote quicker healing.
Benefits of Mini Facelifts
Dr. Anastasatos performs mini facelifts for his clients who want a quick facial rejuvenation, usually before more noticeable aging occurs. Mini facelifts are performed under local anesthesia and are outpatient procedures. The smaller incision curves around the ear, and it heals quickly and is hidden in the hairline. There is less bruising and swelling than a traditional facelift, allowing patients to recover in less time.
While a mini facelift can offer a wonderful rejuvenation for younger patients, it is not designed to lift drooping jowls or address more pronounced aging of the jawline or upper neck.
