What is a Mini Face Lift?
Not everyone needs a full facelift because the earliest signs of aging occur in the lower third of the face. A mini facelift is a modified technique that may be performed using only local anesthesia. Incisions are made around the ears to “lift” the skin. Dr. Park customizes the approach to each patient’s anti-aging needs.
Benefits of a Mini Face Lift
Signs of aging develop in the lower portion of the face because your skin loses elasticity, which allows the natural fat to drop down. As a result, you lose definition in your chin and jowls. A mini facelift repositions the fat to give your lower face a more defined appearance.
Am I a Candidate for a Mini Face Lift?
One of the most common indications that you may benefit from a mini facelift is having skin and fat that sags over your jawline. You can see how a mini facelift may help you by gently pulling the skin tight at your ears using an angled, upward motion. This only provides a general idea of how a mini facelift may help you, so we recommend that you meet with Dr. Park for a consultation.
What to Expect from a Mini Face Lift
Because a mini facelift is less invasive and extensive than a full facelift, your recovery time may be reduced. Scarring may also be less. Once you heal from the procedure, including any swelling, you may see an improved jawline and chin as well as a softening of wrinkles around the mouth. Dr. Park will demonstrate the expected results of your mini facelift at the time of your consultation.
How Much Does a Mini Face Lift Cost in Long Island, NY?
Because a mini facelift is an aesthetic procedure, it is not covered by your medical insurance. We do all that we can to keep the cost affordable for our patients, so we provide an estimate after the consultation appointment. We will also review our convenient payment options, including cash, check, and credit cards.
