Mini Facelift, Big Benefits

There’s nothing “mini” about the benefits our patients experience after their mini facelifts at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center.  If a natural result is what you want, with quicker recovery and fewer risks, a mini lift is likely to be the right fit for you.  

The Mini Facelift with Dr. Diwan

At the Laser & Skin Surgery Center in Westlake, Ohio, the mini facelift helps men and women rejuvenate their appearance by improving signs of aging of their lower face and upper neck.  The age at which men and women start to consider a facelift usually ranges from the forties to sixties. A mini facelift is a great option for many of our patients who don’t want an obvious or drastic change and a “pulled” appearance. It is an appropriate procedure for those whose aging and sagging skin is evident on the lower face and upper neck but has not progressed to severe sagging of the face or neck.

When you come to our Westlake practice, you will be thoroughly evaluated, and educated about the procedure as well as options.  The surgery is safely and comfortably performed in the office with local anesthetic and medication to keep you comfortable and relaxed.  A mini facelift requires a shorter incision than a traditional facelift.  During the mini facelift procedure, Dr. Diwan will redrape the loose skin and the supporting tissue immediately under the skin, tightening and lifting it. This significantly improves the jowls, restoring the definition of the jawline and a more youthful shape.  It also lifts the loose skin of the marionette folds and tightens the sagging under the chin and in the upper neck.  Wrinkles on the skin are improved as well.  Supplemental procedures such as fractional laser resurfacing for treatment of wrinkles or eyelid surgery for sagging eyelids can be added to a mini facelift.

Let’s Talk About the Benefits

Now that you have an idea about what the mini facelift looks like, let’s discuss the big benefits this alternative to a full facelift can bring!

The most sought after benefit of a mini facelift is an age appropriate, natural rejuvenation that you will loveYour appearance will be improved for your age.  Since the mini facelift is less invasive than a full facelift there are fewer risks compared to a traditional facelift.  More conservative surgery also results in quicker recovery.  That’s quite a lot for a “mini” procedure!

This makes many of our Ohio patients less anxious about having a mini facelift.  We recommend taking about a week off work to properly recover and to give your skin time to heal.  After your mini facelift procedure, you will see immediate changes in your face and will continue to see improvement as the healing progresses, over the next one to two months.

Instead of hiding the neck or avoiding the mirror, we see our patients wanting to show off their results, and put away their scarves and turtlenecks. The face and neck aren’t the only features rejuvenated by the mini facelift – our patients’ confidence is as well!  This is one of our favorite things to witness at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center.
