Treatment Spotlight: The Mini Facelift

Many of our patients are looking for an anti-aging procedure that can dramatically improve their appearance that is more cost-effective and has less downtime. After doing a consultation, I often direct them to the mini facelift or “weekend facelift” as it’s been dubbed.

Mini Facelift

Here is everything you need to know about the mini facelift procedure.

What is a Mini Facelift?

The mini facelift, is performed in the office under local anesthesia on the lower half of the face. The incision is made like a traditional facelift incision in front and behind the ear and stitches are usually in place for 7-10 days.

As the procedure and technique has progressed over time, we have been able to combine this procedure with in office fat grafting, neck lift, or in office upper lid blepharoplasty/eyelift.

Who is a good candidate for a mini facelift?

This procedure is great for patients with laxity on the lower half of the face, jowls, laxity in the neck, or those patients that just want a refreshed look. A mini facelift will reduce the sagging appearance of face and neck features, diminish deep creases on the face and neck, and create a more defined jaw and neckline.

How long does a mini facelift take? How long is recovery time?

The mini facelift takes approximately two hours to perform in the office. When the in office facelift is combined with one of the other procedures, it takes longer, approximately 2 1/2 to 3 hours.

Patients do very well with the local anesthesia that I perform and most are back to work within one week. There is some bruising associated with the procedure and mild to moderate discomfort.

What do mini facelift results look like?
