Mini Facelift Surgery

What is a facelift, As we grow older the skin covering the fatty tissue on our faces begins to loosen and sag in various places. This loosening of skin produces wrinkles and enhances the skin folds of the face, especially around the jaw, chin and neck area. Rhytidectomy, or facelift, is a procedure that tightens the muscles and skin of face producing a younger looking appearance. In many cases a facelift is performed along with other procedures such as brow and forehead lifts, eyelid surgery, facial liposuction, chin augmentation and nose surgery.

Mini facelift is generally appropriate for people who show aging in the mid-face and do not have a severe amount of excess skin around their jaw line and neck.

Postoperative Recovery : Mini Facelift surgery Thailand

After mini facelift surgery, some numbness and temporary discomfort may persist around the incision for several days, but this can be controlled with pain medication. The bruising and swelling that does occur will usually subside considerably in the first week. Bandages will come off a day or two after the surgery. Stitches from the surgery are removed during the 5 -7 days, though this varies from patient to patient.

Normal work can be resumed 7 days after a procedure. You should be able to shower and wash your hair 5 days after the bandages come off. However, vigorous activity should be limited for several weeks, including jogging, or any activity that increases your blood pressure.

Most of the visible signs of Mini facelift surgery should disappear within a few weeks, and minor swelling and bruising can usually be hidden. Do not worry if you feel a bit tired and let down at first, as your body heals itself and you begin to look better, you will feel better as well. Patients are usually very satisfied with their new look once their surgery site has completely healed. Patients often do not realize just how much their contributed to an older appearance until they see their new, refreshed look.

FAQs for Mini face lift:


How long is the recovery for Mid Facelift ?

Patients can typically return to their normal daily routines about five days following the procedure. Medication can help with any pain or soreness. Within a week after the mini facelift surgery, the stitches are removed.

What type of surgeon should perform mini facelift ?

Mini facelift surgery is certified by the Board of Plastic and is specially trained in plastic surgery of the facial surgeries and surrounding structures of the face. General cosmetic surgeons do not undergo such specialized training in plastic surgery.

Can Mini Facelift surgery be done without scars?

The scars from facelift surgery usually fade and are barely perceptible. In some patients, especially younger ones, endoscopic surgery can be used to lift the eyebrows, remove frown lines, elevate the cheek and jowls, and tighten the neck. This endoscopic surgery can be done with tiny scars. However, if there is excessive skin, it must be removed for the best results through standard facelift incisions.

What are some of the most common benefits of this surgery?

While this procedure cannot stop the aging process, it can often make a person appear to be a decade younger than their actual age. Facelifts are the fifth most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures in the United States.

How long does a facelift last?

No one can say for sure. The clock is turned back, but keeps on running. Ten years later, you will look better than if you never had surgery. Many patients never have a second lift, while others may desire further surgery seven to 15 years later.

Do you believe in Endoscopic Facelift ?

I don’t believe in Endoscopic Facelift because it can not remove the excessed skin and tighten the underlying muscles.

On the website, you mentions the mini facelift. Does this mini lift address the SMAS, and is it also known as short scar lift or MACS [mimimal incision lift]  or vertical lift?

At Preecha Aesthetic Institute, we are doing both SMAS and MACS.  But most of patient are well candidate for SMAS lift.
