What is a mini facelift?
Mini facelift is an ideal treatment for people wanting to achieve a more youthful appearance without undergoing a full facelift procedure, this procedure is the most common type of facelift surgery performed today. It addresses wrinkles and sagging skin on the lower third of the face using small incisions placed around the ears. It restores definition to the chin by removing excess tissue and artfully tightening remaining tissue.
This procedure can be achieved with local anesthesia and little to no subsequent pain. Post-op swelling and bruising are also minimal, promoting rapid recovery.
How long does a mini facelift last?
The results provided by any facelift procedure can fade over time as the natural aging process will continue post-procedure. That rate of decline, however, is dependent on a number of factors that are both intrinsic and extrinsic.
This procedure reduces minor sagging around the cheeks, jawline and neck. It is intended for people who are beginning to experience signs of aging, in their 40s and 50s, and focuses on specific areas. It cannot target the forehead or the eyes. Its effects last at least five years.
How many facelifts can you have?
Most people who desire to have facial rejuvenation will have only one facelift. Having a second facelift is not that common, because additional types of facial rejuvenation will be requested and provided, such as botox, fat injection, microdermabrasion and laser peels. Having a third facelift is rarely recommended; due to scar and fibrous tissue formation under the skin which makes surgery more complicated and might affect facial expression in the future.
