The mini facelift is the most popular facelift procedure performed today. The mini facelift eliminates wrinkles and sagging skin on the lower third of the face and restores youthful contour and definition to the chin by removing excess fat and tightening the remaining tissue. With five convenient locations serving Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra and St. Augustine, Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Phillip Garcia, offers mini facelifts for men and women who live in North Florida.

What is a Mini Facelift?

The mini facelift is a limited incision facelift. Other varieties of this procedure that may be performed alongside it include neck lift, mini lift, S-lift, submentoplasty, cheek tuck-up facelift and other popular procedures. The mini facelift treats problems such as excess facial skin, the early formation of jowls and sagging skin around the chin and neck.

Am I a Candidate For a Mini Facelift?

The mini facelift and similar procedures are ideal for younger patients who are in great shape but may have one problem or two small areas they want to treat. These patients are typically too young for a full facelift. The mini facelift may also be an ideal procedure for those who have had a facelift in the past but want some additional tightening.

Benefits of a Mini Facelift

The benefits of a mini facelift are limited incisions and a shorter recovery period. Scars may be better camouflaged or hidden. Patients experience less bruising and swelling. Recovery time is shorter than following a full facelift procedure.

The Mini Facelift Procedure

The mini facelift is an outpatient procedure, and patients may choose to have just “twilight anesthesia” or even local if they wish. Most individuals return home that same evening and typically can resume normal activities within a week. Absorbable sutures are used and are removed or trimmed after seven days. Most patients are able to return to all physical and social activities shortly afterward.

Mini Facelift Procedure Results

The mini facelift results may vary among patients, influenced by such factors as genetics, environmental exposure and how well they care for their skin over time; however most patients can expect results to last five to 10 years or longer, and some benefits may last a lifetime.

Is a Mini Facelift Right For You?

Dr. Garcia will be able to help you determine if a mini facelift is suitable for you during your initial consultation. He will evaluate your areas of concern, your anatomy, and medical history, and discuss your best options with you. He will also explain how the procedure is performed, as well as post-surgery care and short and long term expectations.

For some individuals, a mini facelift provides facial rejuvenation with reduced risk, shorter downtime, and smaller incisions. Contact our office for more information or to set up a consultation.
