Mini Facelift (Short-scar Facelift)

Mini Face Lift is a very popular cosmetic surgery procedure that can be performed to reduce recovery time and can be done under local anesthesia only. Aging of the face is a natural process and inevitable. The skin begins to sag in the lower part in the face and the neck. This is more noticeable at the corner of the eyes, jowling at the jawline, deep folds at the corner of the mouth. Many factors such as heredity, sun exposure, and the smoking contribute to the aging of the face.

The best candidates for Mini Face-lift

The mini facelift is particularly efficient on younger patients between 40 to 50 years old. This cosmetic surgery procedure can be easily combined with other procedures like liposuction in the neck area to improve the overall facial look.

The surgery

During a mini facelift, the surgeon first makes an incision along the hairline or in the temporal area.  The incision will extend all the way down to the earlobe and behind the ear.  The incision may vary depending on the patient's anatomy.  Also, the mini facelift procedure or so-called short-scar facelift will depend upon the quality of the skin.  In any case, the goals of the mini lift cosmetic surgery will involve making incisions in the skin, lifting the skin and repositioning the skin in order to reduce the wrinkles and to restore the youthful look of the face.

All facelift Surgery carries some risks

Generally, when a Mini facelift is performed by a qualified cosmetic plastic surgeon, complications are rare. However, peoples vary in their anatomy, their body reactions, and their healing potential, and the cosmetic outcome is never easy to be predicted. The potential risks and complications include hematoma (a collection of blood under the skin), injury to the nerves that control facial movements, infection, and reactions to the anesthesia. Poor healing of the skin  (necrosis) is most likely to affect smokers.

Recovery after mini Facelift

Usually most people find that they can go back to work after 14 days. As with any cosmetic facial surgery, any little irregularity will settle down within few months. After 6 to 9 months, the sensation in the skin and ears returns to normal. You should avoid heavy activities for at least 6 weeks following mini facelift surgery.
