A mini facelift is best suited for individuals who are beginning to see subtle signs of aging. The procedure is less invasive than a traditional full facelift. A mini facelift can diminish fine lines and wrinkles and by tightening loose skin around the jawline, nose, mouth, and neck. Dr. Guyuron at Zeeba Clinic is a board-certified plastic surgeon who is highly experienced in both traditional and mini facelifting techniques.
As we age, the skin begins to lose moisture and elasticity. This is true of men and women alike, but for women, the hormonal changes that occur during menopause can cause women to lose collagen, a protein that is responsible for firm, wrinkle-free youthful skin. This can result in sagging skin around the eyes, mouth, and neck.
A mini facelift can focus on the upper half or lower half of the face. Mini facelift candidates often have one or more of the following:
- Hollowed facial areas
- Mild to moderate wrinkles
- Skin laxity
To address hollowed facial areas, fat transfer injections can be used to add volume to areas that have lost fullness. Fat injections contain stem cells that regenerate healthy collagen and give the skin a natural glow.
A mini facelift is an outpatient procedure. Incisions are made along the hair line to minimize scaring. A mini facelift requires minimal recovery time, typically 1-2 weeks.
