Younger patients who are starting to notice signs of facial aging, but do not need a full Facelift can benefit from a Mini Facelift. This facial procedure aims to correct signs of aging before they become more severe.
What is a Mini Facelift?
A Mini Facelift is for patients in their 30s and 40s who have early signs of aging, such as mid and lower face aging. Patients who have more severe signs of aging, like sagging skin on face neck or neck bands should undergo a full Facelift in Boston.
How is Mini Facelift surgery done?
A Mini Facelift is a less extensive version of a full Facelift. A Mini Facelift often only requires a small incision that is placed inconspicuously in the hairline or inside the ear canal. A small incision may also be placed behind the ear.
Who is a good candidate for a Mini Facelift?
Good candidates for a Mini Facelift are those who wish to address early signs of aging before they become more severe. Patients who are healthy and do not smoke are ideal candidates. A consultation with Concord Plastic Surgeon Dr. Narasimhan will help determine if this procedure is right for you.
What should I expect during recovery from Mini Facelift surgery?
Swelling and bruising after Mini Facelift surgery may last for up to 10 days. However, makeup can easily cover any bruising after the first week.
