For patients with a lesser degree of facial aging the mini facelift is an ideal procedure. Through this procedure the patients enjoy a smaller scar, shorter recovery time, and overall improvement in facial appearance. The procedure has less risk in less stress than standard full facelifts. Because of its shorter recovery time, it is often called the “weekend lift”.
El Paso cosmetic surgery we’re proud to offer the mini facelift procedure with conscious sedation or general anesthesia. Another benefit of the procedure is the decreased cost compared to a full facelift.
Candidates for Mini Facelift Surgery
The procedure is most appropriate for patients having early signs of facial aging and do not want to undergo a full facelift. The procedure focuses on the sagging of the cheeks, marked nasolabial folds, and loose neck. It is very important to discuss your expectations with your plastic surgeon in order to know if a mini facelift procedure is ideal for you.
Complications and Side Effects of Mini Facelift Surgery
Swelling and bruising can last for several days. At first there will be a tight sensation, burning, and/or pulling. You may notice loss of sensation or numbness in the skin. All of these symptoms are normal and resolve themselves overtime.
With any surgical procedure there are risk of infections, bleeding, and fluid collections.
