One of the major drawbacks of getting older is that the quality of our skin tends to worsen as it loses elasticity and slows its production of collagen. When skin loses elasticity, it becomes less stretchy and less able to deal with the downward pull of gravity. This cumulative effect of aging contributes to wrinkles and sagging skin around the face. Dr. Lee Ann Klausner’s less invasive version of the facelift is a simple procedure that can lift and tighten targeted areas of the face.
A mini-facelift is a rejuvenation procedure that is much less invasive than a full facelift. One of the benefits of this facelift procedure is that it only requires a small half-inch incision while the patient is under general anesthesia. The entire procedure is relatively quick, typically lasting about an hour.
Patients are able to return home immediately when the sedation wears off but must have a ride available from the hospital. The end result of the procedure should leave the patient with dramatically tightened skin under the chin and neck, along with an overall lifted appearance.
