As you grow older, your face starts losing its tautness and its youthful appearance. You might start developing wrinkles, jowls, facial creases and perhaps your skin starts sagging. Some people start noticing these changes as early as their late 20s, while others retain fairly youthful skin well into their 30s.

A mini-facelift is the ideal surgical procedure to turn back the clock, reversing the early signs of aging. At Allure Esthetic, our exceptionally-talented cosmetic surgeon carefully examines your facial appearance to curate the ideal mini-facelift treatment plan for you.

What is a mini-facelift?

While surgical procedures don’t prevent aging altogether, they give you more time with youthful-looking skin, extending your youth for as long as possible. A mini-facelift is a modified version of a traditional facelift, used to reverse early signs of aging, such as mild wrinkles and early jowls.

A mini-facelift is also called a “short flap” facelift because of the type of incision involved. This procedure includes a tiny hairline incision that extends from the top of the ears to the area just behind the earlobes, roughly spanning the length of your ears.

After creating the incision, your surgeon “pulls” the skin upward and removes the excess skin and fat tissue. When the incisions are sutured, your skin looks taut and smooth, without wrinkles, fine lines or jowls. The incisions are also completely undetectable since they’re concealed by your ear, and the curvilinear shape in which they were made allows them to blend in with the natural curvature of the face.

Am I a suitable candidate for a mini-facelift?

You’re a suitable candidate for a mini-facelift if you have minor or early signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles. If you’ve only recently started noticing your fine lines and wrinkles, a mini-facelift can smoothen your facial skin to turn back the clock on your skin. However, if you have moderate or severe wrinkles and sagging skin, you may need to consider a traditional facelift.

During your consultation, Dr. Sajan will carefully examine your facial skin and discuss your cosmetic goals to determine if you’re a suitable candidate. He will curate the ideal treatment plan to help you achieve your aesthetic goals, or recommend the ideal treatment for your specific needs.

What’s the general cost of a mini-facelift?

A mini-facelift is a highly-personalized procedure — no two people are alike, and consequently, no two treatments are alike. As such, the cost of your mini-facelift will depend on several factors, including the amount of work necessary and the physician's charges. However, the cost of a mini-facelift procedure usually ranges from $3,500 to $8,000.

It’s generally well worth paying for a more expensive surgeon as they’re most likely to ensure natural-looking results without complications, while cheaper options are more likely to leave with you with a windswept or “pulled” appearance. Dr. Sajan will examine your facial skin and curate the ideal treatment plan before providing a detailed rundown of the exact costs involved.

What can I expect after a Mini-Facelift?

You can return home a few hours after the mini-facelift procedure. Dr. Sajan will apply dressings over your sutures and provide detailed post-recovery guidelines. You must follow all the post-op guidelines accurately to facilitate a smooth recovery. Once the stitches and dressings are removed, you may notice some swelling and bruises, but they should dissipate in a few days or weeks.

The incision scars will be barely visible behind the ears, but they’ll gradually fade into a dull pink, before disappearing completely, within a few weeks. The procedure’s final results will be visible after a few weeks, and the results will continue improving for several months. While a mini-facelift doesn’t stop the aging process, you can rest assured your skin will remain youthful for years.
