What is a Mini Facelift?

Plastic surgeons use different methods, techniques, and procedures to achieve patients’ desires.  To achieve facial rejuvenation patients may opt for skin care, laser and/or surgical procedures.  A face lift procedure can be performed using a complete or mini method.  A mini facelift provides less dramatic result and is less invasive.  When inquiring about a mini facelift procedure at the Straith Clinic, located near West Bloomfield, Michigan, patients can expect to consult an expert plastic surgeon with more than 20 years of experience in cosmetic surgery of the face and body.

Branded Mini-Lifts:

Surgeons may offer a few different facelift options.  Branded options of facelift include “The Weekend”, the “one-Hour”, or “Thread”.  However, keep in mind that branded methods may not provide the best and/or long lasting result.  Regardless of the method chosen, they are risks, complications, and downtime associated with all surgeries.

The Procedure:

At the Straith Clinic, located near West Bloomfield, MI, a mini facelift is performed with local and IV sedation.  Dr. Sabbagh performs the procedure in two and a half to three hours.  The time of the procedure depends on each individual patient.  With a mini facelift, the skin is lifted so the deep tissues can be elevated into a more youthful position.

The Downtime:

A mini facelift is less invasive than a complete face lift method.  This procedure addresses the cheeks, jowls and jowline.  Bandages are applied and pain medication is prescribed for discomfort.

Patients should expect approximately 2 weeks for the recovery.

The Result:

As with most procedures, mini facelift results vary for each individual.  Patients will notice improvement to the cheek, jowls, and jowline.
