A mini facelift, also known as a mini face lift, is a non-invasive corrective surgical procedure that aims to tighten sagging facial skin. The purpose of this procedure is to assist in correcting sagging facial skin around the chin, jawline and neck. During this procedure, an incision is made at the hair line just below the chin and hair is lifted and trimmed off the skin at the back of the upper lip. This procedure also helps eliminate the double chin and lifts up the cheeks.
Advantages of Mini Facelift
Mini facelifts are performed on a short term basis for patients who cannot grow out their facial muscles. Mini facelifts are a convenient alternative to the longer and more dramatic full facelifts patients can undergo. With mini facelifts, patients can get the results they want in a shorter period of time. Due to the shorter period of time it takes for this treatment, patients typically do not need more than a few weeks downtime from the date of the procedure, and most patients notice that their sagging facial skin goes away almost immediately.
In addition to the shorter recovery period, mini facelifts are usually cheaper than other similar treatments. In most cases, patients can return to work within a day or two of their initial surgery and can resume normal activities within a week or so. Recovery time for mini facelifts is much shorter and does not require any additional recovery time such as bed rest or physical therapy. Mini facelifts are performed in a short amount of time and have minimal complications. The mini facelift recovery period is typically only a few weeks or even less, which makes this type of treatment very popular.
