Growing older is a part of life, but it doesn’t mean you need to look your age. Fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin can make you appear years older than you feel. For more noticeable and long-lasting results, patients at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center in Cleveland, Ohio rely on a mini facelift.
What is a Mini Facelift?
Over time, your skin starts losing elasticity. Gravity also plays a role in the aging process. Your facial tissues begin sagging, resulting in marionette folds, jowls, loss of definition of the jawline and looseness under the chin.
A mini facelift is a popular option for women and men who want to look younger and still have a natural appearance. A full facelift is a more aggressive procedure and the results are not always natural-looking. Recovery time is often twice as long and not everyone can take off from work during the longer downtime.
Dr. Renuka Diwan MD, FAAD uses the latest techniques to perform a mini facelift. The procedure is designed for patients with less severe sagging of the lower third of the face and upper neck It is a surgical procedure performed safely in the office using local anesthetic.
Dr. Diwan at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center will anesthetize the skin and make an incision within the hairline of the sideburn and in front of the ear. The limited incisions allow Dr. Diwan to lift and re-support the skin and the tissue layer beneath it. During the procedure, excess fat is also removed, when necessary, from the jowls and jawline and upper neck. Since it is a less invasive procedure, patients go home after the procedure, and downtime typically lasts one week.
