Are the signs of aging beginning to show on your face? Do you have minor wrinkles or sagging around the cheeks, jawline, and neck? If you wish to restore the youthful appearance of your face, Dr. Oliver P. Simmons can provide a mini facelift in Lexington, South Carolina. While a full facelift is a major surgical procedure used to tighten the skin, a mini facelift is a more conservative procedure that reduces minor signs of aging. A mini facelift, which is also called a weekend face lift, reduces minor sagging around the cheeks, jawline, and neck. Mini facelifts focus on specific target areas and do not affect the forehead or eyes.
During a mini facelift, our plastic surgeon will insert surgical instruments through three or more small cuts. In this way, excess fat is removed and muscles are reshaped. This procedure takes only 40 to 90 minutes—a much shorter procedure time than a full facelift, which takes several hours. A mini facelift requires only local sedation. After the procedure, a bandage is worn for 48 hours and sutures are removed after one week. With a mini facelift, there is minimal recovery time; most patients return to work after just a few days.
