Mini Facelift

Mini Face Lift Model Image

The mini facelift has gained popularity in recent years as many people have become interested in effective surgical facial rejuvenation procedures with less recovery time than the traditional facelift. In Seattle, Dr. Stella offers the mini facelift to subtly refresh the neck and lower face by tightening sagging skin of the chin, cheeks and neck.

Dr. Stella Desyatnikova performs mini facelift procedures for her patients who want less extensive lifting than a traditional facelift. She enjoys helping women and men feel confident in their appearance, and has years of experience with facial procedures. In addition to listening carefully to her patients, she provides a realistic and honest opinion.

Am I a candidate for a mini facelift?

Ideal candidates for the mini facelift are people with some laxity (loose skin) along the lower face or early jowls. Other suitable candidates are those who desire improvement of the lower face, but do not want the longer recovery associated with the standard facelift, or those who have had a facelift previously and want some additional improvement of the lower face. The mini facelift is not for everybody; people who have excessive neck skin laxity will need a standard facelift for optimal results.

What does a mini facelift address?

The mini facelift addresses the upper neck, jawline and lower half of the face. The procedure can be performed in our office facility with local anesthesia, if it is appropriate for the patient. Small, well-hidden incisions are made inside and around the ears, and the skin and underlying tissue are tightened. Often, liposuction of the neck is performed as a supplementary procedure for best results. The incisions are closed using fine sutures in order to minimize scarring. Following mini facelift surgery, patients may experience some swelling and bruising; however, overall downtime is minimal and patients can usually resume their daily activities within a week of their procedure.
