Mini Facelift

These days, patients interested in fighting the effects of aging and keeping wrinkles at bay have more options than ever. Between Botox Injections, dermal fillers and facelift surgery, most patients can easily identify a surgical or minimally invasive treatment that directly addresses their individual needs. For some patients, however, undergoing a full facelift procedure may seem daunting or unnecessary while fillers and Botox may not do quite enough to reduce their signs of aging.

At Innova Wellness Spa, our team offers mini facelift procedures to our clients who are not yet candidates for a full facelift, but are interested in eliminating loose skin and wrinkles. A mini facelift, sometimes also called a limited incision facelift, offers similar benefits as a traditional facelift but with shorter incisions and a quicker recovery.

Candidates for a Mini Facelift

Good candidates for a mini facelift are typically patients who have mild to moderate wrinkles and increased skin laxity. Patients interested in a mini facelift should:

  • Be nonsmokers and in good health
  • Have loose skin or excess fat around the jawline
  • Be prepared for one to two weeks of downtime

Most middle-aged men and women with mild to moderate skin laxity make suitable candidates for the procedure. A mini facelift only addresses the lower third of the face, but it may be combined with other procedures, like a neck lift, brow lift, and blepharoplasty, for comprehensive facial rejuvenation.

Mini Facelift Recovery and Results

The downtime for a mini facelift is much shorter than a traditional facelift, but it does still require plenty of rest to ensure a healthy recovery. The exact amount of downtime needed will vary with each procedure, but most patients take one to two weeks off from work. Strenuous activities, including exercise, may be gradually resumed in two to four weeks. Our team provides all of our patients with specific post-op instructions to help them experience as safe and comfortable of a recovery as possible.

Final results will be evident in about six months as the face completely heals and all swelling dissipates. Results from a mini facelift typically last between five to 10 years. The procedure may be repeated if necessary and other treatments, like dermal fillers and Botox, can be used to maintain the results for years to come. Once patients have healed from their surgery, they can expect to enjoy a sleeker, more youthful jawline and the elimination of wrinkles and excess skin in the lower third of the face.
