What is a mini-facelift?
A mini-facelift is a form of surgery that helps correct signs of aging on the face and the neck.
Naturally, this phenomenon is visible on the face and the neck before anything else because their skin is thinner and contains less collagen than that on your body.
The mini-facelift lifts and tightens facial and neck tissues by means of a surgical procedure. It generally involves stripping off excess skin, straightening out creases or wrinkles, and pulling up facial tissue.
In general, the mini-facelift is concentrated on the bottom two-thirds of the face and the neck. Therefore, the procedure does not include a brow or eyelift, though you can do these simultaneously.
What are the side effects of mini-facelift?
The surgery could have some undesired side effects such as:
- facial asymmetry;
- skin loss;
- blood clots;
- anesthesia risks;
- possible cardiac complications.
It often takes about 2- 4 weeks to recover from the procedure.
Usually, the full results are visible after the swelling and bruising subside. In some cases, It may take several facelift procedures to obtain the results you want—proper skincare and maintaining a healthy lifestyle help extend your facelift results.
How much does a mini-facelift cost on average?
On average, the cost of a mini facelift procedure ranges from $7,700 to $11,780.
The final cost will likely be higher because this cost estimate does not cover anesthesia, hospital, or surgical center costs. Factors such as the surgeon’s expertise, geographical location, and desired results will determine your overall individual cost.
Why might a non-surgical procedure be more appropriate?
Let’s get into the benefits of a non-surgical approach to facial lifting and neck tightening.
First of all, a non-surgical facelift is considered a more natural way to address double chins, fine lines, wrinkles, loss of volume in the face, etc.
Secondly, If a client is interested in no downtime, minimal discomfort, low incidence of adverse effects, and lower medical costs, then the non-surgical procedure might be more appropriate.
The non-invasive or minimally invasive treatment option is also advantageous in the sense that you can use it to routinely and successfully maintain surgical results.
The non-surgical treatments won’t give you the same dramatic results as a surgical facelift.
However, not all people desire to go under the knife but still want to look rejuvenated and have skin tightening. There are some options for a non-surgical facelift that can erase five or more years off your appearance and have no recovery time.
