Mini or Limited Facelift

Mini facelift, also known as limited facelift, is a variation of traditional facelift. It will take years off of an individual’s appearance, but the results won’t be quite as dramatic as facelift. Mini facelift is best suited to candidates who are starting to see signs of aging around the face, such as mild to moderate wrinkles or skin laxity or those having some changes after a previous surgery. Patients with more comprehensive needs may find traditional facelift a better fit. Dr. Guyuron, an experienced and respected practitioner, offers both mini and traditional facelift at his plastic surgery practice.

Mini Facelift Consultation

During the mini facelift consultation, Dr. Guyuron will examine the candidate and inquire about his or her desired outcome and expectations of surgery. He will outline a treatment plan that addresses each of the candidate’s concerns and cosmetic goals.

Mini facelift candidates often complain of one or more of the following:

  • Hollowed facial areas
  • Mild to moderate wrinkles
  • Skin laxity

Dr. Guyuron will also inquire about the patient’s medical history and any past surgeries. He will discuss the potential risks of surgery, what the recovery will entail and other details that are helpful to people considering mini facelift.

Dr. Guyuron instructs his patients to refrain from consumption of aspirin, NSAIDs and herbal products for three weeks before and a week after the surgery.

Mini facelift candidates who plan to visit from out of town can opt for a virtual consultation via Skype, FaceTime or over the phone.

Recovering from Mini Facelift

Recovery from mini facelift varies by patient. In general, swelling and bruising resolves within one to two weeks. Dr. Guyuron will provide comprehensive instructions to help patients heal as quickly as possible. He also prescribes pain medication to soothe any discomfort. Dr. Guyuron will schedule several follow-up appointments with his mini facelift patients and advise when it is safe to return to work, exercise and everyday activities.
