Mini Facelift

A mini facelift offers a subtle enhancement to facial appearance. Dr. Fahradyan offers this minimally invasive surgery to target mild sagging and wrinkles, providing a rejuvenated look with reduced recovery time compared to traditional facelifts. It’s a valuable option for those seeking a modest yet noticeable improvement with minimal downtime.

Rejuvenate Your Appearance Over The Weekend

A mini facelift, also known as a weekend facelift, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure designed to refresh and rejuvenate the face. Unlike traditional facelifts, which involve more extensive surgery and downtime, a mini facelift focuses on addressing mild to moderate signs of aging, such as sagging skin and wrinkles, with smaller incisions and a quicker recovery. This outpatient procedure offers a subtle yet noticeable enhancement, making it an appealing option for those seeking a more youthful appearance without the commitment of a full facelift.

Mini Facelift FAQs

What is the main difference between a mini facelift and a traditional facelift?

A mini facelift is less invasive than a traditional facelift and involves smaller incisions, shorter recovery times of a few days, and mild to moderate signs of aging. Traditional facelifts are more comprehensive and suitable for advanced aging concerns, but they also involve an extended downtime of a week or more.

How long do the results of a mini facelift typically last?

While individual results vary, the effects of a mini facelift can last anywhere from 5 to 10 years, depending on factors such as genetics, lifestyle, and skincare routines.

What is the recovery time for a mini facelift?

Recovery times vary but are generally shorter than traditional facelifts, with most patients able to return to light activities within a few days. Full recovery may take a few weeks.

Is a mini facelift suitable for everyone?

No, it’s best for individuals with mild to moderate facial aging concerns. Dr. Fahradyan will assess your specific needs to determine the most appropriate treatment plan.
