What Is Done During a Mini Facelift?
During a mini facelift, the cosmetic surgeon will remove excess skin from the face and neck; this can be sagging skin that causes the patient to look older. A mini facelift also enables the tightening of loose facial muscles, effectively reshaping the face and making it sharper. The treatment can therefore address laxity of the cheeks and the neck.
Where Is the Incision for a Mini Facelift?
The incision for a mini facelift stops behind the ear, so it does not reach into the hairline as is the case with most facelift procedure. Despite the smaller nature of the incision, patients must still consider that they will be left with a scar after the procedure.
Can I Predict the Results That I Will Get from a Mini Facelift?
Every patient is different, so predicting results is always down to looking at the individual. When patients visit the Dr Lanzer Clinic for their initial consultation, Dr Lanzer can provide you with some examples of the results you can expect. He can also explain how to interpret those results in relation to problems you experience and how the procedure could correct them.
Patients can get a visual of how they would look like after a mini facelift; this by pushing loose facial skin towards the ears. Of course, this will not provide you with an exact replica of the results you will see after your procedure, it does give you an indication of them.

Of course, this is still a subjective figure and could be more or less. So, always speak to Dr Lanzer before the treatment to determine how many years the procedure could take off.
Does a Mini Facelift Have Any Risks?
All cosmetic procedures are accompanied with certain types of risks and or side-effects. One of the most common side-effects that can be experienced after cosmetics surgery is swelling, so this is a side-effect that patients are likely to encounter after a mini facelift.

This is also one of the reasons why your clinic must provide you with a follow-up appointment after a mini facelift or any type of cosmetic procedure.
