What’s a Mini Facelift and Should I Get One?

Face lift During the aging process, our skin naturally skin loses its elasticity. This often results in wrinkles, sagging skin, and deep lines around our mouths and eyes. While there are plenty of cosmetic procedures that can address the signs of aging, a mini facelift is a popular option that is minimally invasive and creates the rejuvenated appearance patients want.

The Renaissance Plastic Surgery team offers a mini facelift as an alternative to the traditional procedure. While the mini facelift involves less lifting and facial restoration, it is also a faster treatment with minimal downtime.

What Does a Mini Facelift Do?

Sometimes called a “weekend facelift,” the mini facelift tightens sagging skin, minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, and enhances facial contours. It is less invasive than a full facelift and focuses on the lower half of the face, improving jowls and sagging skin around the neck. The procedure typically takes about two hours, and patients often recover within a week.

The incisions for a mini facelift are smaller than those used in a traditional facelift, which results in less scarring and a quicker recovery time. Patients often combine the mini facelift with other cosmetic procedures, such as a neck lift or eyelid lift. The mini facelift is a safe and relatively fast procedure. Some patients experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort that resolve quickly.

Who is an Ideal Candidate?

A mini facelift is a great option for someone who wants to address signs of aging but is not ready to undergo a full facelift. Patients should be in good health with the traditional signs of aging: Sagging skin around the cheeks, chin, and neck are ideal candidates. In some cases, patients who have significant sagging skin or deep creases may be better suited for a full facelift. During your consultation, your Renaissance Plastic Surgery provider will discuss your desired outcomes and unique look.
