The term “mini” is exactly as it sounds for a mini face lift. It is a less invasive procedure than the standard face lift. Undergoing a mini face lift will help to tighten and lift minimal sagging of the skin to improve less extensive signs of aging. This is a popular procedure among women and men who are on the younger side and experiencing the early signs of aging. Compared to the traditional face lift procedure, the incisions for a mini face lift are much shorter. Since they are shorter, it means the face lift recovery time is much shorter. This means there will be less time to take off of work and the sooner you can be back on your feet. The procedure primarily focuses on the cheek and jawline area and not as much on the neck area. Focusing on those primary areas will help reduce minor sag from the mild loss of muscle tone and skin elasticity.
Nervous About Plastic Surgery?
With age comes sagging skin and other imperfections which develop on and around the face. For those concerned with these less than desirable changes, surgery can be an excellent option. But, any type of surgery can make a person nervous, especially plastic surgery. First, plastic surgery is elective, meaning it isn’t absolutely necessary for a person’s health and well being. Second, many prospective patients are concerned that plastic surgery will give them a drastic change that everyone will notice and it may look too fake and not natural. For those concerned about that overly tight and excessively pulled wind tunnel or windswept effect, the mini face lift can be ideal. This procedure will give a less dramatic outcome because it targets minimal areas that have been affected by aging, thus producing a more natural-looking yet still more youthful appearance.
Boost Your Confidence
When you look good, you often feel good too. The same can be said of the reverse. If you’re concerned about aging signs like wrinkles and sagging skin, it can begin to affect how you feel about yourself. By being proactive and addressing those concerns, you may just find that you not only look better, you feel better too. In fact, many plastic surgery patients experience a great boost in self-confidence after their procedures. Dr. Bentkover loves to help his patient feel beautiful and proud to be in their own skin.
Wake Up That “Tired” Look
Are you looking exhausted and a little worn? Are people always commenting that you look tired? Sagging skin around the cheeks and eyes can really age a person, creating a tired and worn out appearance. It can also affect how people perceive you in your work life. If you’re tired of that tired look, the mini face lift can address sagging in the cheeks and jaw to restore a more youthful, refreshed and rejuvenated appearance. You’ll still look like yourself, but a little younger and like you’ve just returned from a really relaxing vacation.
The Recovery Period You Can Fit Into Your Schedule
Since the mini face lift is a minor procedure with less extensive work being performed than the traditional face lift, you can expect the recovery to be less extensive as well. The standard face lift procedure typically involves longer incisions and more invasive work. Considering the incisions are shorter and the work less invasive, the recovery time for the mini face lift is essentially cut in half. That means you’ll experience fewer side effects for a shorter period of time and you’ll be back to your normal routine sooner.
