When skin starts to sag and lose its elasticity in the lower portion of the face and jawline, the mini face lift is a perfect solution for many men and women who are just beginning to experience these signs of aging.
About The Procedure
The mini face lift (comparable to the S Lift, Lifestyle Lift or Quick Lift) is the lower face version of the traditional face lift but is not as invasive or costly. It involves using shorter incisions and less sutures which minimizes potential scarring.
During the procedure a short incision is made along each ear, allowing Dr. Casey to gain access to the tissues under the skin. Sutures are placed in the supportive layer (SMAS) to lift the overlying skin back into its more youthful position. He then removes the excess skin and re-drapes it to smooth out the wrinkles and redefine the jaw line. The result is a younger, fresher looking face.
The mini face lift is an in-office procedure that takes a little over an hour. Light sedation and local anesthetic is administered; there is no general anesthesia involved.
