Demystifying the Mini Facelift

2-facelift.facialrejuvenation2-tn[1]If you’re not ready for heavy plastic surgery, but want something more than the results you’ll receive from an injectable filler, what’s your best option? You may have heard of a “mini” facelift, but what does that procedure actually entail? The answer may surprise you! “Mini” may mean different procedures for different surgeons, so it’s important that you ask your surgeon about his version of a mini facelift. At the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, Dr. Azizzadeh specializes in comprehensive customized mini facelifts.

Do Your ‘Mini’ Facelift Research

When you’re ready to learn more about mini facelifts, you should research different surgeons and ask questions about the different surgical procedures that they perform. Mini facelifts are different in the hands of different surgeons. Some surgeons do very limited skin lifts, while others custom-tailor the procedure so that you get natural and refined results—not a “cookie cutter” look.

Open Communication With Your Surgeon

While the terminology “mini facelift” may be intriguing, you won’t know if it’s the right procedure for you unless you have an open and direct conversation with your surgeon about your goals and expectations. A surgeon’s intentions and techniques may not match what you have in mind, so details about the results must be discussed during your consultation.

Mini Facelift for Early Signs of Aging

Dr. Azizzadeh’s mini facelift may be the solution you’re looking for if the aging process is not that far along and you don’t think you need the results of a full facelift. It’s a specialized procedure that targets trouble spots in the lower third of your face. The lower face and neck tend to experience some of the most drastic signs of aging; sagging jowls, loose skin, and wrinkles around the mouth may become overpowering features of your face that you’d like restored to a softer, more youthful state.

Dr. Azizzadeh’s Unique Approach

To reach the deep layers of the face—the SMAS—Dr. Azizzadeh utilizes hidden incisions. The SMAS gives your face structural support and Dr. Azizzadeh molds the SMAS in his unique mini facelift procedures to help produce natural and long lasting results. The SMAS is repositioned in various “vectors” to give you a customized, refined appearance in your jaw line, neck, and cheeks.

Outpatient Procedure

You can return home the same day as your surgery because a mini facelift is an outpatient procedure. Dr. Azizzadeh will give you detailed post-surgical instructions to ensure you have a smooth recovery and minimal discomfort. The recuperation period after a mini facelift is limited, so patients are often able to return to normal activities within 7-10 days. Results will last longer than a non-surgical skin tightening procedure, such as Ulthera, and you still won’t have that much downtime.
