Mini face-lift is a common procedure that tightens and lifts aging skin without invasive surgery. With older age often comes saggy, loose skin and fine lines. Mini face-lifts are the perfect solution for patients who begin experiencing minor signs of aging.
The Advanced Specialty Associates team completes the procedure on the lower part of the face to perfect natural-looking results.
The advantages you can expect after undergoing a mini face-lift at Advanced Specialty Associates include:
Mini face-lift procedures require smaller incisions, fewer sutures, and less scarring than traditional face-lifts — but they offer exceptional results nonetheless.
To find out if a mini face-lift is the procedure for you, the Advanced Specialty Associates team discusses your medical history and beauty goals. They examine your face and tailor a treatment plan that matches your desired results. You might be a candidate for a traditional face-lift, neck lift, facial fat transfer, or another cosmetic treatment.
To get ready for a mini face-lift, follow your surgeon’s instructions. Avoid smoking and stop taking certain medicines if asked to. Wash your face and hair as instructed before surgery and avoid foods and drinks the morning of the procedure if necessary. Find a family member or friend to drive you home after the procedure.
You might receive local anesthesia with a sedative to relax you or general anesthesia to help you fall asleep during a mini face-lift. Your surgeon makes a small incision near your ear, removes and alters tissues, tightens the skin, and closes your incisions afterward.
After you undergo a mini face-lift, follow your Advanced Specialty Associates specialist’s instructions. Place cold packs in the treatment area, get plenty of rest, and take medications as directed. You can expect temporary swelling, redness, and soreness during the healing process.
The recovery time after a mini face-lift is usually about 7-14 days. The procedure helps you appear 7-10 years younger after healing is complete. Attend follow-up visits with the Advanced Specialty Associates team to ensure optimal results.
