Mini Face Lift

Refresh the appearance of your face and restore its youthfulness with a Mini Facelift, designed to visibly smooth away lines and create a more defined jawline. Muscle laxity, sagging and jowling can result from natural ageing, lifestyle choices and exposure to the elements, sometimes resulting in a tired, worn out appearance. The surgical procedure involves the lifting and tightening of the skin and the superficial muscular system of the middle and lower face, revealing a smoother and more shapely jawline. Less intensive than a traditional face lift, the Mini Facelift uses smaller incisions to enhance your appearance with natural-looking results, and therefore has a faster recovery process than a traditional extended face lift.

About

A mini facelift, also known as a short-scar facelift, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that is designed to improve the appearance of the face by tightening sagging skin and underlying tissues. It is a less extensive procedure compared to a traditional facelift and is typically performed on patients who have mild to moderate facial aging.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The surgeon makes small incisions in strategic locations, typically along the hairline and around the ears. The length and placement of the incisions may vary depending on the patient's anatomy, desired outcome, and the surgeon's technique.

The surgeon lifts and tightens the underlying tissues, including the muscles and fascia (SMAS superficial myo aponeurotic system) This helps to restore a more youthful contour and reduce sagging.

After the tissues are tightened, the surgeon trims and removes excess skin. This helps to eliminate wrinkles, jowls, and other signs of facial aging.

Once the excess skin has been removed, the remaining skin is carefully repositioned to achieve a natural-looking result.
