Mini Face Lifts


The Mini-Facelift is a quick and discreet procedure suited to busy executives and those who do not have time for the prolonged recovery of a full face lift.

It is regarded as a maintenance procedure, best suited for people in their 30s and 50s who have good skin tone, but are starting to see some laxity in their lower face around the jaw. Mini face lifts suit those who don’t really require a full facelift, but still want to reverse and hold off the aging process.

Mini face lifts are commonly used by celebrities, who do not want any procedures to be noticeable.

The differences to the traditional facelift are:

  • The scar is shorter
  • There are fewer complications, such as possible hair loss around the incisions
  • There is also a little less bruising and swelling of the face post-operatively
  • There''s very little need for bandages after the surgery
  • The recovery period is much quicker - the patient can usually return to work after five to seven days
