The top 6 benefits of the mini facelift
When you start to visibly age, perhaps showing some sagging around your jowl or wrinkles appearing on your neck, your confidence can take a hit. Luckily, a mini facelift can address the issue of early signs of ageing, without some of the negatives which come with a full facelift.
When should I get a mini facelift?
The procedure works best for people with early signs of ageing and is usually suitable for people around 45 years and upwards. If you’re looking for plastic surgery Bristol-wide, we give you a thorough assessment, and we can advise if you will be a suitable candidate for the procedure.
The top 6 benefits of a mini facelift
1. Not as many cuts as a full facelift
During the procedure, there are fewer cuts made than when having a full facelift. Furthermore, the surgeon makes smaller surgical incisions. This makes the mini facelift less invasive than the full face lift.
2. Carried out with local not general anaesthetic
Your surgeon can carry out the procedure with a local anaesthetic, rather than a general anaesthetic. Using a local anaesthetic will benefit anyone sensitive to general anaesthetic. This also improves recovery time. After a local anaesthetic you can drive yourself home, rather than needing to rely on arranging a lift to and from the clinic.
3. Less potential scarring
The small surgical incisions reduce the potential for scarring. The cuts are made around your ears and hairline and, usually, once healing has finished any scarring is minimal.
4. Effective results
The procedure is easier and simpler than a full facelift yet that doesn’t mean it’s not effective. When the right candidates have the procedure the results are worthwhile.
5. Lower cost
The procedure isn’t highly invasive, and you can carry out the operation using a local anaesthetic which means the cost is more affordable than a full facelift.
6. Less pain and quicker recovery
Any plastic surgery does involve a certain amount of pain and the applicable recovery time. However, due to its nature, the mini facelift causes less pain and patients experience a quicker recovery time than a full facelift. If you want a quick procedure with minimal downtime, the mini facelift may be a good option for you.
