When your skin starts to sag and lose its elasticity in the lower portion of the face and jawline, a mini facelift is the perfect solution for many men and women who are just beginning to experience these signs of aging.
An In-Office Procedure
The mini facelift is an in-office procedure that takes a little over an hour.* Light sedation and local anesthetic is administered; there is no general anesthesia involved.
The mini facelift targets the lower face and jawline 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 facelift with a blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), brow lift, laser resurfacing or fat transfer/dermal fillers in the same setting.

Why Choose The Mini Facelift?
Phoenix Skin is confident you will discover that Dr. Laris and his mini facelift have an incredibly high safety and satisfaction rating across the board.
As with any big decision in life, especially your face, it is important to take the time to research these procedures and their satisfaction ratings. Many of Phoenix Skin’s patients in Phoenix and Scottsdale have weighed the different options available for cosmetic face surgery such as the lifestyle lift, s lift, quick lift or full facelift.
About the Procedure
The mini facelift (comparable to the S Lift, Lifestyle Lift or Quick Lift but better) is the lower face version of the traditional facelift but is not as invasive or costly. It involves using shorter incisions and less sutures which minimizes potential scarring with minimal recovery time.
During the procedure, a short incision is made along each ear, allowing Dr. Laris to gain access to the tissues under the skin. Sutures are placed in the supportive layer (SMAS) to lift the overlying skin back into its more youthful position. He then removes the excess skin and re-drapes it to smooth out the wrinkles and redefine the jaw line. The result is a younger, fresher looking face.*
After the Procedure
As expected, some discomfort and swelling will occur and the face and neck will feel tight.* Bruising is also a possibility. This will gradually improve over the course of 7-14 days and most patients can resume normal activities.* Factors such as age, healing ability and diet will determine how long healing will take.
Mini Facelift Results
The best part about the mini facelift is patients do not look like they have had something “done”; they look refreshed, and 5 to 7, even 10 years younger.*
- Service Price
- Mini Facelift $4400
The cost of a mini facelift is $4,400 (regular price is $5,500).
The procedure itself takes a little over an hour.* The total procedure including pre-op, surgery and post-op recovery takes 3 hours.*
As with any surgery, mild to moderate pain and discomfort is expected, but managed with prescribed pain medication and cold compresses.
Once swelling subsides, you will see the results; a refreshed look with 5,7, or sometimes 10 years taken off of your visual age.*
Mini facelift results typically last 5-10 years, depending on your lifestyle. They will be affected by continued aging, gravity, and the elements.
