What is a mini facelift?

A Mini Facelift is a surgical procedure to rejuvenate and refresh the face for those who have started to develop signs of ageing that are beyond what can be corrected with Fillers and Botox™.

Who should have a mini facelfit

It is ideal for non-smokers who are starting to see the appearance of early jowls and deepening lines from the corner of the mouth to the side of the nose.

How long does the procedure take

The treatment takes about an hour in total and wounds are placed inconspicuously. They heal in approximately 10 days and there’s no need for painful removal of stitches.

What are the risks involved with a mini facelift

All surgery carries the risk of wound infections and poor scarring. The scars are very carefully tailored to fit into the areas that are hidden such as in a Full Facelift and so are very unlikely to be noticed.

What are the advantages?

The low down time! It’s a short operation and there’s a quick recovery time so you can take less time off from work or leisure activities. There is also minimal swelling and bruising.

What are the limitations

Obviously you will not see as great an effect as you would from a Full Facelift which is a far more extensive procedure and the results will not last as long.

What about my aftercare

You will be reviewed after one week and again after 2 weeks to check that all wounds are healing nicely.

What about my medication

You should be off any medications or supplements that may make you bleed e.g Warfarin or Clopidogrel. If in any doubt please ask your GP.

How long does a mini facelift last

The results last between 2 and 3 years. As with any rejuvenating facial surgery the clock is reset but unfortunately it keeps ticking and so signs of ageing will always reappear eventually.

The overall effect can be improved by combining the Mini Facelift with Botox™ and Fillers to create a harmonious regeneration and an overall refreshed look.
