The skin on your face is going to naturally start to sag as you get older. This becomes a very annoying problem because there are no viable exercises to perform to tighten loose and sagging skin. If you are unhappy with the effects the aging process has had on your face, undergoing a cosmetic procedure is your only option to improve your appearance. While there are several different procedures that can help fix sagging skin on the face, the mini facelift is a simple procedure that can provide amazing results.
The mini facelift has some key differences when compared to the traditional facelift. Whereas a traditional facelift can target the entire face and neck, a mini facelift is typically limited to lifting the cheeks and jowls. Since most people experiencing the early signs of aging rarely have sagging skin above the cheekbones, this is a great way to take years off your face while undergoing a less involved procedure than the traditional facelift. If you are looking to remove the sagging skin on and around the jowls, this may be the right procedure for you.
The procedure will always begin with a consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon. During this initial appointment, Dr. Scott will discuss your goals and concerns with you and help you decide if this is the right procedure for you. If it is, he will then tailor the procedure to meet your goals. While the exact procedure involved in a mini facelift is personalized for each patient, the process generally consists of lifting and tightening the skin of the cheeks and jowls.
You will be able to return home shortly after the surgery is completed. Of the many benefits that come with the mini facelift, the reduced downtime is one of the most popular. In fact, many patients choose this procedure simply because they can get back to their daily routine much more quickly than with a traditional facelift.
We will likely schedule a follow-up appointment with you after your procedure is finished. This is only to ensure that you are healing properly. During this appointment, you can also talk to Dr. Scott about how you are feeling and what steps you can take to accelerate the recovery process.
When performed by a professional like Dr. Scott, the results of your procedure will last for years. While we can’t completely stop the aging process, we can drastically slow it down with cosmetic procedures like the mini facelift.
