WHAT IS A MINI FACELIFT?
A Mini Facelift is a less-invasive surgical option for improving the appearance of wrinkles and sagging in the lower face and jowls. This procedure can be done alone or with other surgical and non-surgical treatments, dependent upon each individual’s goal.
In a Mini Facelift, the excess skin that exaggerates jowls, lower face wrinkles, and an undefined jawline is excised to help achieve a more youthful look and enhance the face’s “V” taper.
HOW IS THE MINI FACELIFT DONE?
The procedure is done at our office in our surgical suite under local anesthesia and oral sedation. Dr. Rubbani makes a meticulously-measured incision, typically in front of the ear. The muscle is altered and excess tissue removed. Dr. Rubbani utilizes the same delicate detail and precision to close the incision as she does in her ocular surgeries to minimize noticeable scarring. We also provide our patients with detailed information for minimizing downtime with post-care guidance and pre-surgical supplementation and care.
Although our patients are expected to feel great within a day or 2 of surgery, plan on taking it easy for the first week. Post-care and downtime may vary based on other procedures done with the Mini Facelift. Most patients return to work and most normal activities with 10 days.
WHAT OTHER PROCEDURES ARE DONE WITH A MINI FACELIFT?
There are many surgical and non-surgical options that can be combined with a Mini Facelift to enhance results and/or treat a completely different concern! The most popular treatments done with a Mini Facelift include: Renuvion Skin Tightening, Vaser Liposuction to the chin and jowls, Surgical Cheek Lift, Endotine fixation threads, Eyelid Lift.
