At a Glance

Mini Lift Procedure

A mini lift addresses wrinkles and sagging skin on the face. As opposed to a full facelift, a mini face lift targets the cheeks and jowls, rather than the upper face.  Benefits include a shorter scar and faster recovery time.

Mini Face Lift Procedure Time

Dependent on the individual requirements, the procedure will generally be performed in around 2 hours.

Mini Face Lift Side Effects

The potential side effects of a face lift procedure are more or less the same as they are for any surgical procedure. Side effects include temporary bruising, swelling, numbness and tenderness of skin. This will subside in 1—3 weeks

Mini Face Lift Risks

Injury to the nerves that control facial muscles or feeling (usually temporary). Infection, bleeding. Poor healing; excessive scarring. Asymmetry or change in hairline.

Mini Face Lift Recovery

Back to work: 7—10 days. Light activity is permitted within 72 hours. Bruising; 1—2 weeks. Must limit exposure to sun for several months.

Duration

Less invasive than a full facelift, the results of mini facelifts typically last about two to five years.

We are all unique and a good doctor’s skill lies in retaining the elements that make us who we are.

What is a mini facelift procedure?

A mini face lift, often referred to as the 'lunch time' face lift has opened a whole new approach to facial rejuvenation. As opposed to a traditional facelift, this minimally invasive procedure offers less scarring, bruising and downtime.

Also known as:Mini lift, mini facelift, mini face lift, minimally invasive facelift, mini face and neck lift, mini face lift surgery, mini face surgery, mini lift surgery.
Desired results:Patients have many different motivations for wanting a mini face life, but the desired results are generally a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
Patients visit us from:Most of our patients are from the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and surrounding suburbs. We also see many patients travelling from all over Australia.

Facial procedure step by step

A mini face lift allows incremental (step by step) small changes which can be spread over time without the dramatic, obvious effects of a "full" facelift. This type of approach fits in with the natural aging process and allows corrections at appropriate times—"maintenance rather than rescue".

By taking cosmetic surgery gradually – over a period of months or even years – a patient is more likely to be satisfied with the outcomes.

Scheduling the right "minimally invasive" procedure at the right time allows for more graceful aging process. This approach is particularly suitable for both men and women under 60 and those who have had a previous facelift.

What are the mini face lift scars?

Whereas the conventional facelift may leave visible scars and loss of hair, the mini face lift has no incision behind the ear. The incision line at the front of the ear will be concealed within the fold. Swelling and bruising and the risks of complications are minimised because less skin has to be lifted off the muscle layer.

Combining cosmetic procedures

A mini lift can be performed in conjunction with other procedures such as eyelid surgery, facial liposuction and laser resurfacing.
