About the Mini Facelift Process
In today’s fast-paced, competitive society, looks are of paramount importance.The “Mini Lift”, also referred to as a Mini Facelift, is an alternative to the traditional, more formal face and neck lift procedure. Some patients, however, do not necessarily need or want a formal face and/or neck lift procedure. In addition, some patients do not wish to undergo a deep anesthetic. The “Mini Lift” is an office-based procedure done under local anesthesia that is an alternative answer for these patients still seeking a more youthful look.
Minimal-incision facial surgery (mini face lift) can make your face look as young as you feel.
The Mini Facelift Advantage
Mini facelift surgery is particularly effective for younger who possess good skin elasticity. The benefits of this procedure include:
- Smaller incisions
- Minimal scarring
- Less bleeding
- Minimal numbness
- Quicker recovery
Mini facelift is a cost-saving procedure compared to a full or complete facelift. Also the recovery time from a mini facelift, is relatively shorter than a full facelift to the extent that some people even call it a next-day lift. Depending on what part of the face that is out of balance due to excessive fat deposits or other causes, sometimes most patients need only a mini facelift and not the entire facelift to achieve their desired looks.
The “Mini Lift” can rejuvenate the lower face and upper neck to provide a more youthful and rested appearance. The best candidates include healthy men and women who are bothered by sagging, loose skin along the lower face and upper neck and sometimes unwanted jowling along the jawline.
What is the Mini Facelift Procedure
During your scar less eyelift surgery- endoscopic eye lift, our elite Board Certified cosmetic surgeon will use extremely safe advanced Blepharoplasty technology and equipment to remove excess skin from your upper eyelids. Your surgeon will also lift your eyelids so that your eyes appear larger and more awake.
Incisions for the eyelid lift may be made in the creases of the upper eyelids or, for the lower eyelids, just under the lash line or in the crow’s feet area. Once the incisions are made, excess skin, fat, and a small strip of muscle are excised. It is often necessary to be conservative in the removal of fat in order to prevent hollowing.
Prominent Tear Troughs may be addressed by repositioning rather than removing excess fat so that it covers the tear trough area. Alternatively, fat injection can be done to reduce the hollowness and dark shadows from tear troughs.

Mini Facelift FAQs
- What’s the Difference Between a Mini Facelift and a Facelift?
While a traditional facelift targets all sections of the face and major sagging, a mini facelift is meant to target minor sagging in specific areas of the face. A facelift is ideal for those who wish to:
- Achieve a more rested, youthful appearance
- Eliminate wrinkles, sagging skin, “turkey neck,” or sagging cheeks or jawlines
- And more
A full facelift is most often performed on adult patients and is often accompanied by liposuction to remove excess fat from the face and neck while also tightening sagging skin.
Alternatively, a mini facelift is ideal for those who wish to:
- Be proactive about combatting the early signs of aging
- Target only specific areas, like the brows, cheeks, jaw, neck, etc.
- “Touch up” a previous facelift
Recovery time for a full facelift is usually around one to two weeks, while mini facelift recovery is just a few days due to smaller incisions.
