A Mini Face Lift Can Provide Natural-looking Facial Rejuvenation
Signs of aging, such as a loss of definition along the jawline, can make you look older than you feel. Fortunately, there is a sophisticated solution that can provide beautiful, natural-looking rejuvenation to the lower third of your face. Dr. Oren Lerman performs mini facelift surgery at his Manhattan, NYC, practice to help you look vibrant and refreshed. Less comprehensive than a full facelift, a mini facelift targets the jawline and neck to restore youthful definition. To learn more about how a mini facelift can enhance your natural features, schedule an appointment with Dr. Lerman today.
The Mini Face Lift Consultation
During your consultation with Dr. Lerman, you will discuss your aesthetic goals in order to determine whether a mini facelift is the right procedure to meet your expectations. If you have concerns with the brow area, for example, a traditional facelift might be a more appropriate treatment. Unlike a full facelift, which treats the entire face, a mini facelift focuses only the lower third of the face.
To be suitable for a mini facelift, patients should have sufficient elasticity in their facial skin. A mini facelift is designed to address the initial and limited signs of facial aging, such as lax skin throughout the lower portion of the face, minor jowls along the jawline, and skin along the neck that has begun to sag. The best candidates are typically in their 30s and 40s. Dr. Lerman will also review your current state of health and your medical history to determine if you can safely undergo surgery.
The Mini Facelift Procedure
Because this surgery is less invasive than a full facelift, Dr. Lerman will make smaller incisions near the ears. Patients can expect that these incisions will result in easily concealed scars within your hairline, providing a truly natural-looking enhancement.
Through these incisions, Dr. Lerman will access the underlying tissue and gently tighten it to achieve a more youthful appearance. Any excess tissue will be removed, and the remaining tissue will be sutured closed to give you improved definition along the lower cheeks, chin, jaw, and upper portion of the neck.
The Advantages of a Mini Facelift
Compared to other surgical facial procedures, a mini face lift is less invasive, which equates to a number of advantages for patients:
- Little to no visible scarring
- A minimized healing period
- Reduced risk of complications
Patients may choose to complement their mini facelift results with a non-surgical skin therapy once recovery is complete. Dr. Lerman can recommend an anti-aging treatment, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or dermal fillers, to provide comprehensive results.
