What is a mini facelift?
Despite the name, a mini facelift is still a major cosmetic procedure. This anti-ageing procedure lifts your skin using small incisions, allowing the surgeon to remove excess skin, tighten your skin and reduce the appear of wrinkles. Incisions are made behind the ear in the natural folds or the hairline to make sure it leaves no visible scarring. The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and usually takes up to four hours.
Who is the perfect candidate for a mini facelift?
If you’re unhappy with how your face looks due to age, depending on your aesthetic desires, a facelift may help you achieve your goals. As we age, our collagen relaxes, and our skin tends to drop. Regardless that this happens to everyone, it can make many people feel self-conscious.
Mini facelifts are the perfect way to address things like sagging skin, “jowls” around the cheeks, loss of jaw definition, and many more issues. A mini facelift can treat almost all issues with the mid-face.

Aftercare and recovery
A mini facelift requires about a 4-6 weeks recovery time, however it usually takes bit longer to see the full finished results after the procedure.
All plastic surgery does involve a certain amount of pain or discomfort and some recovery time. However, due to its nature, the mini facelift causes less pain and patients experience a much quicker recovery time than a full facelift. If you are looking for a relatively quick procedure, with minimal downtime, the mini facelift may be a good option for you.
