Mini Facelift: Mini but Mighty

Signs of Aging?

If you are beginning to see sagging skin or loss of definition in the lower part of the jaw or face, it might be time to consider a Mini Facelift or S-Lift. Deep wrinkles or frown lines around the mouth and pronounced jowls can keep you from living your best life professionally and personally. A mini facelift can benefit a patient who is not ready for a full facelift procedure.

A Mini Facelift by Another Name: S-Lift

The S-Lift, also referred to as a mini facelift, is a popular alternative to the traditional full face lift. The “S-Lift” creates an overall lift to the lower third of a patient’s face and cheeks. With the S-Lift, the incisions are smaller and less invasive with less complications and a faster recovery period. A good candidate for this procedure are people who have mild to moderate sagging in the cheeks, neck, or chin and want to obtain a more youthful, natural appearance.

Find Out for Yourself

During your first visit, Dr. Gross will carefully examine you and discuss your concerns and goals. This consultation will allow Dr. Gross to evaluate your skin type, basic bone structure, ethnic background and other considerations before making recommendations. He will patiently and fully answer any questions you may have about the procedure.

Multiple Benefits

The mini facelift, which is a refined version of the full facelift, has several benefits:

  • Tightens & lifts sagging skin
  • Reduces the jowls and refines the jawline
  • Gives the lower face natural, youthful contours

Facial rejuvenation in the form of a mini facelift can combat early signs of aging without a lot of downtime or discomfort. It’s an affordable, effective outpatient surgery that can be performed under local anesthesia.

Post Surgery

After surgery, loose dressings are applied and the doctor gives you specific instructions for rest and post-op care. Then you return to the comfort of home to recover. Any pain is managed by over-the-counter medication.

As with any type of surgery, there are risks. However, refraining from smoking and carefully following the pre- and post-procedure instructions reduces the likelihood of these complications. Discoloration and bruising is a normal part of the recovery process and generally fade within seven days.

Recovery time for a mini-facelift usually varies between a few days to two weeks. Follow-up appointments will allow the doctor to gauge the healing process. Strenuous activity should be avoided for up to a month following the procedure. The friendly, efficient staff at Dr. Brian Maloney’s office will be available for post-surgery questions and guidance as needed.
