Results, Recovery, Incisions from Mini Facelift: What to Expect?

What do you think of the lifestyle lift or, for that matter, any mini-lift, if a person does not require a complete facelift? Is it lasting, and where are the incisions made? How long is the usual recovery time?

Dr. Azizzadeh’s Expert Answer

Every facelift surgery is different, and every facelift surgeon has a different post-operative norm for their patients. It is also important to remember that every person has a unique reaction to surgery. With that said, it is of utmost importance that you know and trust your facelift surgeon, and that he/she has expertise in all aspects of facial rejuvenation. “Cookie cutter” surgery should be a thing of the past, so make sure that your surgery is customized to your aging process in order to give you the best possible outcome. Try not to be too concerned with cost when it comes to picking a surgeon or a clinic. Instead, make care, compassion, expertise, and high ethical standards your top priorities.
