What is a mini facelift?
If you have signs of ageing beyond the scope of injection treatments and are not sure about undergoing a full facelift, a mini face lift may provide the answer. Also known as mini lift or S lift (short scar facelift), this operation is becoming popular because of instant results and rapid recovery.
As we get older, the soft tissue volume of our face loses its elasticity and can droop. This may cause lines around the mouth to deepen, jowls to develop with softening of the jaw-line and fullness under chin to appear. The aim of a facelift is to raise the facial soft tissue volume and remove excess tissue to restore a more youthful appearance. The type of facelift used depends of the degree of age changes present and the extent of improvement desired.
The mini facelift is particularly helpful for early to moderate age changes, repositioning the facial skin and tightening the jowls. The enhanced mini facelift takes this a stage further by also tightening the deeper tissues underlying the jowls. The mini facelift can be combined with other procedures, such as eyelid surgery or a brow lift, to help achieve your desired appearance.
The mini facelift is usually performed as a day case procedure and involves smaller incisions in the hair line and ear skin creases. Following mini facelift surgery you can expect less bruising and swelling so resulting in quicker recovering time with the final result apparent after four months. Although the operation turns back the clock, ageing naturally continues. It is possible to consider a further mini facelift or even a full facelift at a later stage.
