Double-board certified Dr. Guyuron, an experienced and respected practitioner, offers both mini and traditional facelift at his plastic surgery practice. Mini facelift, also known as limited facelift, is a variation of traditional 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.


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  can enjoy:

  • Tightened refreshed appearance
  • More defined jawline
  • Diminished lines and wrinkles
  • Shorter recovery time

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


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 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.
