Mini facelift is the new name for a better contoured and younger looking face, in just minutes!
Yes, it is the most popular reconstructive cosmetic procedures which is catching up for its obvious benefits and cost-effectiveness. At RG Aesthetics, a mini facelift is performed in lesser time than what you would spend at a Spa. The procedure addresses the concerns like sagging skin towards the lower face and wrinkles around the chin and neck area, especially the jowl formation.
For people in their mid-30s to mid-40s who have droopy jowls and are looking for a refreshed, younger face, a mini facelift is the safest bet. During the 2 hours procedure, the patient is administered with anesthesia. Post which small incisions are made right in front of both the ears to pull and tighten the skin and the underlying SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) tissue. Once the tissue is lifted, tightened and brought to the desired positioned, the incisions are closed with the help of sutures, the excess skin tissue is trimmed and the wound is left to heal naturally. This removes the skin tag and removes the droopy jowls.
Lifting the SMAS is of utmost importance as only the tightening of the superficial layer of the skin won’t render the desired and natural looking results which are long-lasting. When the SMAS tissue is lifted and tightened to the desired position, a natural facial contour is achieved which promises to stay for long. This precision and expertise can be rendered by an expert and qualified surgeon only, who knows the facial anatomy to the core.
The most visible results of a mini facelift are:
- Restoration of a defined chin by removal of excess skin tissue.
- Correction of jawline by making it more prominent and defined.
- Improved aesthetics of lower third face and neck.
- Improved skin laxity and minimal wrinkles in the lower face.
The best part of a mini facelift is that it has almost negligible side effects as it is a minimally invasive surgery and incisions are strategically placed in the creases of the skin and the scars can be perfectly concealed under the natural hairline. Any swelling or bruising, if occurs, subsides in a matter of days.
Recovery post a mini facelift is also not an issue as it takes only 2-3 days to get back to normal routine. Minor swelling, bruising, redness or loss of sensation are usual post surgery effects which subside in just a few days. The actual and most astonishing results of mini facelift surgery become visible in months and keep improving over the due course of time.
