Every patient comes to Dr. Brenner with unique cosmetic issues and aesthetic concerns. For some, the signs of aging have not yet progressed to the point where a full facelift is necessary. Younger patients who want to maintain a younger, fresher look are candidates for a “mini facelift.” This procedure is appropriate for those who still have a good degree of skin elasticity, but are beginning to see lines and wrinkles appear.
Shorter Recovery, Minimal Scarring
Dr. Brenner's mini facelift in Beverly Hills is a less invasive procedure, and addresses sagging and drooping on the lower facial area. This procedure treats the deep layer of muscle beneath the skin, repositioning tissue to produce a fresh, youthful look. The recovery time is fairly short, with patients ready to return to work or social activities within five to seven days in most cases.
What is a Mini Facelift?
With various “branded” mini lifts promoted on TV and radio, many people wonder what type of procedure can help them restore a smoother, younger facial appearance. A mini facelift is a custom procedure, and rejuvenates the lower face and upper neck by lifting:
- Sagging cheek structure
- Droopy jawline
- Sagging or lined upper neck area
Mini Facelift: The Facts
While a mini facelift is known by several names, the fact is that any facial procedure, to produce beautiful, natural-looking results, must be customized to suit the patient. The outcome of a procedure is based upon the skills, artistry, and experience of the surgeon. Dr. Kevin Brenner is a board-certified plastic surgeon – with added certification as a general surgeon. His qualifications go beyond the ordinary, and he is recognized as one of the finest plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills.
Your mini facelift in Beverly Hills will be a custom-tailored procedure, geared to produce a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance. Any facial procedure should be performed by a highly-qualified plastic surgeon – you will be living with the results for years, and should choose your surgeon with great care.
Endoscopic Mini Facelift
A mini facelift is performed endoscopically and requires much shorter incisions, typically about half the length the incisions in a traditional facelift. The procedure is performed on an out-patient basis, with local anesthetic in most cases. Each area of the lower face that has begun to sag and droop are lifted, the underlying muscles and membranes tightened, and any excess skin and fat removed.
The small incisions heal more quickly, and recovery time is faster than what is experienced in a full traditional facelift. This procedure is often used for patients in their 40s and 50s.
