Mini Facelift

Home » Face » Mini Facelift

Introducing the mini facelift, a sought-after procedure by Dr. Mehta, a renowned plastic surgeon in Manhattan. Meant for those with mild tissue sagging, this “weekend facelift” focuses on lifting and tightening the outermost layer of skin for natural rejuvenation with minimal downtime.

Refresh Your Face With
Minimal Downtime

The mini facelift is a less invasive alternative to a traditional facelift, targeting mild to moderate sagging skin and lax jowls. Focusing on the lower half of the face, this procedure gently tightens the skin, producing a subtle and natural-looking transformation. By enhancing the jawline, defining the neckline, and revitalizing the overall facial appearance, the mini facelift achieves a rejuvenated look. With minimal downtime, this procedure offers a refreshed appearance without an overly drastic change.

Mini Facelift Corrects:

  • Mild to moderate sagging of facial skin
  • Lax jowls
  • Loss of definition in the jawline
  • Excess skin and fat in the lower face
  • Wrinkles and fine lines in the lower face
  • Loss of facial volume and contours
  • Double chin or turkey neck appearance
  • Overall signs of aging in the lower face and neck area

Mini Facelift Surgical Details

Dr. Mehta performs mini facelift surgery at his state-of-the-art facility in Manhattan. Under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with varying levels of sedation, the procedure is tailored to the individual’s needs and may be combined with other treatments. The length of the surgery depends on the surgical approach and any additional procedures being performed.

During a mini facelift, Dr. Mehta skillfully makes incisions that begin in the hairline at the temples and continue around the ear.

However, unlike a traditional facelift, the incisions stop at the earlobe, avoiding the need for incisions in the lower scalp. These shorter incisions contribute to a quicker recovery and result in less visible scarring once the healing process is complete.

Dr. Mehta’s surgical expertise and meticulous incision placement ensure optimal results with minimized downtime and discreet incision lines, allowing patients to enjoy a more youthful and refreshed appearance with natural-looking outcomes.

Candidates for Mini Facelift:

  • Individuals with mild to moderate facial sagging
  • People seeking a less invasive alternative to a traditional facelift
  • Those with excess skin and fat in the lower face
  • Those looking to refresh their appearance with minimal downtime
  • Individuals with good overall health and realistic expectations
  • Those who are non-smokers or willing to stop smoking before and after the surgery

The Recovery Process

The recovery process following a mini facelift is an important phase in your journey to a rejuvenated appearance. Dr. Mehta emphasizes the significance of proper aftercare to optimize healing and achieve the desired results.

Immediately after the procedure, you may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which are normal and temporary. Dr. Mehta will provide specific instructions on caring for the incision sites, managing discomfort, and promoting healing. It is crucial to follow these instructions closely to ensure a smooth recovery. You may need a supportive bandage or compression garment for a few days to reduce swelling and support healing.

During the initial days, it is essential to rest and avoid strenuous activities. Dr. Mehta will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and remove sutures. The swelling will subside, and you will start to see the beautiful results of your facelift. While individual experiences may vary, most patients return to regular activities within a week, with makeup concealing residual bruising. By adhering to the post-operative instructions, you can ensure a smooth and successful recovery.
