One of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures is the mini facelift. You may wonder what makes a mini facelift more popular than a traditional facelift. The answer is in its simplicity. Mini facelift surgery addresses wrinkles and sagging skin on the lower third of the face and neck, restoring definition to the chin and jawline by removing excess tissue and tightening the remaining tissue.
Your plastic surgeon can customize a mini facelift, tailoring it to your needs and desires for your jawline definition. It is frequently combined with Smartlipo of the neck to enhance the appearance of the neck by removing excess fatty tissue below the jawline and the chin. In your initial consultation with your doctor, you can engage in an informed discussion about your expectations from the procedure. You will also outline a customized treatment plan, designed to provide you with beautiful, natural-looking results.
The mini facelift is often referred to as the “weekend facelift” due to how quickly the procedure is done. However, you typically need to refrain from working until at least one week has passed after your surgery. This allows your body to heal from the procedure. Your doctor will give you more specific recovery instructions before your surgery.

- Minimal scarring from the tiny incisions made by your board-certified plastic surgeon
