What is a Mini-Facelift?
The Mini-Facelift is a cosmetic procedure that aims to restore the youthful appearance of the face by lifting soft tissues to reshape sagging skin. It is a shorter and cheaper procedure than a regular facelift and can be performed under local anaesthetic.
Mini-Facelift surgery targets the effects of ageing to improve the appearance of the lower face and jowels while minimising risk and downtime. The idea is to achieve a rejuvenated, natural look, whilst maintaining what makes you you. The ideal result can boost self-esteem and give you your confidence back.
Am I the right candidate for a Mini-Facelift?
The Mini-Facelift is a technique best suited to patients who are starting to develop some mild jowling or have had previous lifting procedures. If you are worried about the affects of ageing on your face and are starting to experience mild skin laxity, cheek sagging or loosening of the jawline then Mini Facelift could be the procedure for you.
How does a Mini-Facelift work?
In the operation, a cut is made in front of and behind the ear. Any old scars from previous surgery are removed. The skin is lifted off the deeper layers of the face to allow access to a layer called the SMAS. This deeper layer is then tightened, by stitching it over the cheekbone and up behind the ear. The cheek skin is then tightened backwards. The skin does need to be tailored out behind the ear, which leaves variable-length scar in the groove behind the ear, but there is no scar into the hairline behind the ear as you would have in a conventional ‘full’ facelift.
