A mini facelift can provide targeted results to areas of the face without the time and effort of traditional facelift surgery. A mini facelift is a minimally invasive procedure with fewer incisions than traditional surgery. While results are less dramatic, it can pinpoint specific signs of aging in the face. A mini facelift is a popular choice for younger patients as a maintenance procedure.
Properly timed, a mini facelift prevents the need for more dramatic changes later while providing greater youthfulness and glow. A mini facelift is like a traditional facelift in that incisions are required along the hairline or near the ears in order to help pull back skin and reconstruct facial muscles. Dr. Villano can target problem areas with the right kind and size of incision. Because there are fewer incisions, the recovery time and potential for complications are significantly reduced.
The procedure is typically performed in our office, usually on an outpatient basis. Mini facelift surgery can be performed under local or general anesthesia. With local anesthesia, you’ll be awake during the procedure, but anesthetized and relaxed. The surgery time can vary, depending on the extent of the procedure.
For those looking to retain their youthful vibrancy, a mini facelift may be the answer. Contact Villano | MD for a consultation today.
