About Mini Facelift

Most people assume a facelift is a complex surgical procedure that involves weeks of downtime. But a mini facelift, also known as a weekend facelift, allows you to reverse mild skin laxity and sagging using minimally invasive techniques. The mini facelift involves lifting and tightening excess skin tissues on the lower face, making you look several years younger. Dr. Lisiecki performs a highly personalized mini facelift in NYC according to your unique anatomy, goals, and concerns, ensuring safe and natural results.

What is a mini facelift?

A mini facelift is a less invasive facelift technique that corrects mild to moderate facial sagging and skin laxity. If you’re suffering from mild to moderate jowls and nasolabial folds, the plastic surgeon can tighten the skin tissues on the lower half of the face. A mini facelift is a smaller version of a full facelift, and can make your facial skin look firm, taut, and youthful. This procedure improves the jawline and neckline, making you look young and attractive.

Which is the correct facelift technique for me?

A facelift can be performed using numerous techniques, such as a traditional facelift, SMAS facelift, facial fat grafting, mini facelift, and more. Each facelift technique is suitable for different people and for different reasons. During your consultation, Dr. Lisiecki carefully examines your facial skin, assesses the degree of skin laxity and sagging, reviews your medical history, and recommends the ideal facelift technique for you. His mini facelift NYC treatment plan is tailored according to your unique anatomy, goals, and expectations.

Dr. Lisiecki’s surgical technique for a mini facelift

Dr. Lisiecki will perform your mini facelift in NYC in his state-of-the-art surgical center under local anesthesia with sedation or under general anesthesia, depending on the specific techniques used. A mini facelift usually concludes in 1 to 3 hours, but the specific length depends on your condition. The surgeon makes an incision that starts at the temples, continues around the ear, and ends behind the ear. The surgeon trims away excess skin tissues and tightens underlying tissues to make your face look firm, youthful, and taut. You may experience mild post-treatment swelling, bruising, and discoloration and the incision marks may initially seem dark. Over days to weeks, these side effects will subside, and the incisions will fade away. You can resume most of your normal activities within a week and resume strenuous physical activities within a few weeks.
