When skin starts to sag and lose its elasticity in the lower portion of the face and neck, the mini face lift is a perfect solution for many men and women who are just beginning to experience these signs of aging.
The mini face lift (comparable to the S Lift, Lifestyle Lift or Quick Lift) is similar to the traditional face lift but not as invasive or costly. It involves using smaller incisions, as well as smaller stitches to minimize the amount of scarring that develops. During the procedure a short incision is made near each ear, allowing Dr. Laris to re-suspend the tissues under the skin. He then removes the excess skin and re-drapes the overlying skin to smooth out the wrinkles and redefine the jaw line. The result is a younger, fresher looking face.
The mini face lift takes a little over an hour and you can likely resume normal activities within 3-5 days. There is also no general anesthesia involved and bruising and swelling is usually minimal. The mini face lift targets the lower face and upper neck and will not affect the forehead and brow position, the eyelids, or the mid-face area. For this reason, many patients explore the option of complementing their mini face lift with a blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), brow lift or laser resurfacing in the same setting.
“A mini lift is one of my favorite procedures to perform. The fact that I can turn back the hands of time and take 5 – 7, or even 10 years off of the visual age of my patient in a few hours and with a few days of downtime always amazes even me. You can literally have this done in our office without being put to sleep, just light sedation and local anesthetic, and shower and shampoo hair the following day. Sutures are removed in 5 days and most people are back to work in less than a week. The best part is you don’t look like you’ve had something “done”, you just look refreshed, because I remove the excess skin and never pull too tight.”
