For better or for worse, we live in a society that is concerned about appearance. It is true that people have always been concerned about how they look, but with the advent of television and the Internet, the way a person appears is more important now than it ever has been.
For this reason, society as a whole is very familiar with cosmetic procedures. Terms like rhinoplasty, BOTOX® and face lift are a part of a person’s everyday English lexicon. However, a procedure that is extremely effective, yet not as well-known, is a mini face lift.
The Mini Face Lift
In short, a mini face lift is a minimally-invasive procedure that is designed to address fine lines and wrinkles that affect the face and the upper neck. The goal is to give the face a revitalized appearance and to make you look a lot younger.
How is a Mini Face Lift Performed?
The mini face lift procedure may take between one and two hours, depending on the work that needs to be done. The procedure will begin by a well-trained specialist giving you local anesthesia. Once you have been made comfortable, our board-certified plastic surgeon can begin to reposition the deep layer of the cheek. The skin is then stretched and tightened where needed. Any excess skin can also be removed.
Recovering after a Mini Face Lift
Mini face lifts are an outpatient procedure. This means that once the procedure is done and after you’ve had a little rest, you will be able to go home. As long as you closely follow the post-op care instructions, you’re going to have only a few days of recovery.
As part of the recovery process, there are going to be a few restrictions that you need to follow, yet these restrictions are going to help in the healing process. After you have fully recovered, you will start to see a younger, more vibrant you. You will be happy with the way you look, and you will have a face that you are proud to show off to the world.
