Everything You Need to Know About a Mini Facelift
Apr 19, 2022

Ageing brings about several changes, many of which are related to the skin. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and wrinkles and drooping. More specifically, when a person ages, the body undergoes many changes, manifesting as the development of loose, drooping skin and weakening muscles in the facial region.

A mini facelift is a minimally invasive plastic surgery technique that treats wrinkles and sagging skin without a traditional facelift's scarring and side effects.


A Mini Facelift is a surgical procedure in which a plastic surgeon utilises small incisions along the hairline to raise the lower half of the face and address sagging skin. This surgery procedure's general purpose is to help address drooping skin around the neck and jawline by focusing on the lower part of the face. A slight facelift, despite its name, necessitates a major cosmetic facelift. Before getting any form of cosmetic surgery, the method is to balance all the benefits and the expenses and hazards. Facelifts differ depending on the desired outcome of each patient. Traditionally, an incision is performed near the temples in the hairline. The incision begins in front of the ear, continues down in front of and around the earlobe, and returns to the lower scalp behind the ears.

Fat and extra skin on the face can be removed or redistributed. The underlying muscle and connective tissue are re-adjusted and tightened. The incisions are intended to mix beautifully with your hairline and face structure.


Mini facelifts are suitable for persons who have developed slight drooping and jowls. This operation is ideal for people who have no history of medical issues that could interfere with a smooth recovery.

Our surgeon will perform a presurgical evaluation before the mini facelift procedure. They request that the patient refrains from taking specific medications before the surgery. The surgeon may choose to do the process under local anaesthetic with sedation, in which the patient remains awake, or under general anaesthesia, in which the patient is completely sedated. It is usual to experience pain or discomfort, swelling, and bruising, for which the surgeon will prescribe pain medication after the surgery.

The surgeon will tell when to remove any dressings or drains and when to schedule a follow-up appointment. Every surgeon will have post-surgery recovery recommendations. Some may request that the patient wear a surgical neck or chin garment to reduce swelling and allow the skin to adjust to the new face shape.

Once the swelling has subsided, the procedure will reveal the difference in how the face looks, which can take up to several months.
