Mini-Facelift for a Natural, Refreshed Look
by Charles J. Gaudet, MD, FACS
During our mini-facelift consultation, most of our patients will sit across from me, look into the mirror, then place their fingers to either side of their face, just in front of their ears and lift up just the right amount to see their jowls reduce and the neck contour improve. “That’s all I want” they announce. And typically, that is what is possible in a mini-facelift.
A mini-facelift is a procedure which can be performed under local anesthesia (or general if you prefer), usually taking around 2 hours to accomplish these goals. Incisions are placed in a crease under the chin, and in the crease in front of and behind the ears. The result is a natural refreshed appearance, with neck contour restored and the jowls greatly diminished.
A consultation ahead of time is necessary. During that meeting, most patients share that they do not want to appear like their face is in a wind tunnel or look like the “Joker”. I can assure you, this procedure will leave you looking refreshed and natural appearing, not forced or synthetic. READ MORE AND SEE BEFORE-AFTER PHOTOS HERE!
