FaQ – Mini (Short-scar) face lift

How long does recovery from a mini facelift take?

Recovery from a mini facelift is generally quicker than a traditional facelift. Most patients can return to normal activities within 2 weeks. However, complete healing and seeing the final results may take a few months.

Is a mini facelift as effective as a traditional facelift?

A mini facelift can be very effective for those with moderate signs of aging, mainly targeting the lower face and neck. It is less invasive than a traditional facelift, but the results are usually more subtle and may not address more significant aging signs.

What are the risks associated with a mini facelift?

Like any surgical procedure, a mini facelift carries risks such as infection, scarring, and reactions to anesthesia. Specific to this procedure are risks of asymmetry and nerve damage, although these are rare when performed by a skilled surgeon.
