Advantage of a Mini Facelift
The advantages of Mini facelifts are more limited incisions and less downtime. Incisions can often be better camouflaged or hidden. Patients can expect less bruising and swelling. Make-up and time to routine activities is less than with a full facelift procedure.
The procedure is still done in an outpatient setting. Patients can choose to have just “twilight anesthesia” or even local if they desire. Patients are able to return home that evening and often can be seen publicly within the first week. Absorbable sutures are used and these are removed or trimmed at the one week point. Patients should feel comfortable returning to all social activities shortly after this.
Mini Facelift Procedure Results
Duration of Mini facelift results is variable depending on each patient’s anatomy, genetics, and how they maintain themselves afterward. That said most patients can expect results to last 5 to 10 years or more. Patients will always appreciate some benefits, however, for life.
The first step to deciding if a Mini facelift is right for you is to meet with Dr. Hamilton in consultation. He will first listen to your areas of concern. After an evaluation of your anatomy, he will discuss with you your best options. He will also discuss what surgery involves, post surgery care and short and long term expectations.For select patients, Mini facelifts offer facial rejuvenation with less risk, less downtime and smaller incisions. Prospective patients are encouraged to call our office for more information or to set up a consultation.
