The Mini-Facelift: Smooth Away Wrinkles and Recover Faster
There are people who feel youthful, but have a desire to beat the signs of aging and look younger as well. Facelift surgery seeks to lift the facial tissues that sag due to the progression of age. The result? One attains a youthful and natural appearance. By the skillful removal of excess sagging skin, deep fold smoothing, and the lifting and tightening of deep-seated tissues, a surgical facelift helps a person not only look younger but feel better too.
A Facelift of the Mini Kind
People who show small signs of jowls or sagging skin in their facial make-up are normally good examples of those requiring a mini facelift. The mini-facelift is a less invasive one than the “maxi” one. In this technique, as is with its original counterpart, a surgeon will tighten deep facial tissues, but through shorter incisions. These are generally made along the hairline above the area of each of the ears. Structural tissues in the area in and around the cheeks are lifted and tightened to remove jowls. The jawline becomes more defined in this way.
Every patient is different, and depending on the case; the procedure may be performed under general or local anesthesia. The recovery after any surgery has to be monitored carefully; the recovery period after a mini-facelift is shorter compared to a normal, more advanced facelift procedure. This is due to the fact that incisions are smaller and will heal within a week. Soon enough, you will be ready to confidently reveal your younger and fresher face.
