Why We Love Mini Lifts

The Mini Lift is a popular option for middle-aged patients who want to refresh their looks and reduce early signs of aging. These are our top reasons why a Mini Lift may be an ideal choice for you:

  1. Provides a refreshed, natural and youthful looking appearance
  2. Tightens lower face and provides a defined jawline
  3. Modest cheek rejuvenation
  4. Minimally invasive with short incisions providing a brief recovery period

What Is the Mini Lift?

Think of it as a quick pick-me-up. The Mini Lift is a modified/less-invasive (yet still permanent) type of facelift than some other surgical facial rejuvenation options. It treats moderate laxity and sagging in the mid face area and lower jawline by using the SMAS Plication technique.�Because it�s a less invasive procedure, there is less downtime and the recovery period is shorter than other types of facelifts. For the right patient, a Mini Lift is a great option for facial rejuvenation that makes you look youthful and refreshed.�

Who is the Mini Lift For?

Typical Mini Lift patients are in their mid 40s and are looking for a solution to address early-to-moderate signs of aging such as a soft jawline, dropping cheeks, deep creases around the nose and mouth.� The Mini Lift is an excellent surgical technique for patients who don�t yet need the complete results that a Comprehensive Deep Place Facelift provides.Patients who have tried fillers and aren�t seeing the desired results anymore can consider a Mini Lift as the next step in their facial rejuvenation plan.�

How the Mini Lift Facelift is Performed

The Mini Lift uses a SMAS plication technique, meaning Dr. Buonassisi will create a small incision in front of and behind the ear for access to the underlying facial structures. Dr. Buonassisi can then elevate the skin of the mid and lower face away from the underlying fat and muscle and lift it to a new position. He will trim excess skin and meticulously close the incision.�

Complementary Treatments to Enhance Your Mini Lift

A Mini Lift is a great way to lift and tighten the mid face, with minimal downtime, but many patients choose additional treatments to address other areas of the face and skin as well. Some of the most popular choices for complementary treatments for Mini Lifts include:
