The Mini Facelift: Minimally Invasive Rejuvenation

Female facial plastic surgeon Dr. Klausner performs mini facelifts in New York City and Manhattan for patients looking to avoid a traditional facelift reducing recovery time while achieving a gracefully subtle look that enhances your natural beauty. Since the mini facelift is less invasive, it can be performed more quickly and often requires minimal anesthesia—much less than a traditional facelift. Additionally, patients are usually able to return home shortly after the procedure. All of these factors help keep the cost of the mini facelift more affordable in comparison to other anti-aging surgical treatments. The procedure generally enhances key facial areas with less risk and less stress than a standard facelift. In a mini facelift, Dr. Klausner surgically tightens and repositions the skin and muscles on the face to obtain a younger-looking appearance.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Mini Facelift?

Oftentimes, our patients inquiring about a mini facelift are annoyed by advanced lines and wrinkles in the jowl areas of the face. A facelift can target many areas, depending on your unique goals. Mini facelifts can offer even more alternatives for individuals who do not necessarily want or need as intensive of a surgical procedure. Candidates should note that age doesn't always define the best time to opt for a facelift.

There are several unique aesthetic concerns, as well as many lift types, to consider. For example, the method used will be different for patients who are 35 years old versus those who are older. Skin laxity will be one of the main factors in the decision-making process. Further, facelift patients should be in good overall health, refrain from smoking, and maintain realistic outcome expectations.

What Does the Surgery Entail? The Mini Facelift Procedure 

Facelift specialist Dr. Klausner performs her mini facelift procedures in our Manhattan office under local anesthesia or at a surgery center under general anesthesia, depending on the complexity of the procedure. The procedure itself usually only takes a few hours, but you can expect to block out 4-5 hours for preparation and recovery. Dr. Klausner works to ensure you feel comfortable and supported from start to finish.

A New Outlook Mini Facelift Recovery

Like with any procedure, there will be swelling and bruising. A mini facelift is considerably less invasive than a traditional facelift, though. Female facial plastic surgeon Dr. Klausner suggests patients take several days, if not a full week, off from work to allow the body to heal after a mini facelift.

Adding to Your Mini Facelift A Total Transformation 

Depending on the requirements of the patient, Dr. Klausner may use facial and neck liposuction to remove deposits of fat in the neck and cheeks. Once the fat is removed from the neck and face, Dr. Klausner may tighten the muscles and remove any excess skin. Liposuction of the neck and face is much more comfortable than traditional body liposuction procedures, so patients typically only require local anesthesia. During your short recovery process, you can manage pain with over-the-counter medications.
