Mini facelift surgery by our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Richard Zeff, can sometimes be an effective alternative to a full facelift when the signs of aging are less pronounced. This technique can benefit those who exhibit the earlier signs of sagging skin in the face, neck, and along the jawline. The surgery and recovery times associated with mini facelift procedures are typically less than with traditional facelift surgery, and the incisions are smaller. With mini facelift surgery, our plastic surgeon can help you achieve a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
The Mini Facelift Procedure
A mini facelift takes approximately two hours to perform. The procedure is less extensive with shorter scars, which are usually placed inconspicuously within the hairline and around the ears. Excess skin is removed and in some cases the underlying muscles are tightened.
Mini Facelift Recovery
Dr. Zeff performs mini facelift surgery under either local anesthesia in the comfort of our state-of-the-art practice, or if the patient prefers, with more traditional anesthesia. A mini facelift takes approximately two hours to complete, depending on your unique treatment plan. The procedure is less extensive than traditional full facelift, and the technique requires shorter scars. The incisions usually will be placed inconspicuously within the hairline and around the ears. Excess skin is removed and, in some cases, the underlying muscles are tightened.
