Why Have a Mini Face Lift by Dr. Thomas Kaniff?
The Mini Face Lift Consultation
At your plastic surgery consultation, Dr. Kaniff will discuss your desires, examine your areas of concern, and develop a customized treatment plan for you. He may recommend additional treatments that complement this procedure to give you the best results possible. Procedures that are often done at the same time to improve facial harmony include eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty, neck lift, brow lift, double chin firming, fat grafting, or dermal fillers such as Voluma, Restylane, Juvederm, or Sculptra.
The Mini Face Lift Procedure
The mini face lift is performed by Dr. Kaniff at his plastic surgery center in Sacramento, California. The procedure is done under local anesthesia, or some patients choose the additional comfort of intravenous sedation anesthesia.
The mini face lift incision begins in the scalp above the ear and follows the natural curves of the ear to the ear lobe and sometimes into the crease behind the ear.
Through this incision, Dr. Kaniff identifies and repositions the deep layer of the cheek known as the SMAS to a more youthful position with semi-permanent suture. Excess skin is removed and the incision is closed with meticulous plastic surgery techniques.
Mini Face Lift Recovery
After a short recovery, you return home with a light dressing, which is removed in the clinic the next day.
The Mini Lift recovery is measured in terms of just a few days if you pay strict attention to the post-operative care and instructions given by Dr. Kaniff and his staff at the Kaniff Cosmetic Medical Center. Sutures are removed in one week and make-up can be applied. Normal activity is resumed after just a few days, but hold off on strenuous activities for two weeks.
