A mini facelift is a cosmetic procedure that improves the appearance of your neck and lower facial area. Traditional facelifts improve your entire face, but you may benefit from a partial, or mini, facelift. Recovery is also much shorter with a mini facelift than with a traditional facelift. The goal in face lift is to preserve the natural look and avoid the pulled look (“wind-blown” look).
Am I a Candidate for a Mini Facelift?
If the aging process has left its mark on your lower face and neck, then a mini facelift may be right for you. Mini facelifts are less invasive than traditional facelifts with less risk and recovery is much shorter than with traditional facelifts. Dr. Hormozi may recommend other procedures in conjunction with your mini facelift, such as eyelid surgery, brow lift, and laser skin resurfacing.
What Is the Procedure for a Mini Facelift?
In most cases, a mini facelift is performed with local anesthesia. Small incisions are made near your ears where the scars are not visible. Dr. Hormozi then repositions the underlying tissues and removes the excess skin. The mini facelift procedure typically takes about two hours.
What Is the Recovery After a Mini Facelift?
You are able to resume your normal activities four days after your procedure. You may experience mild discomfort, bruising, and swelling for a few days after the procedure. Dr. Hormozi may recommend over-the-counter pain medications.
How Much Does a Mini Facelift Cost?
Mini facelift costs vary by patient, depending on the types of treatments that are recommended by Dr. Hormozi. We offer FREE private consultations, and you may pay for your treatments by cash or check.
