The Mini-Facelift procedure (or limited incision facelift technique) is a great option for patients who wish to address common signs of aging, such as sagging skin and wrinkles on the face and neck, without undergoing more invasive traditional facelift procedures or short-lasting treatments, such as anti-wrinkle injections.
Mini facelifts performed by our board-certified plastic surgeons at Personique always appear natural without having a pulled or stretched appearance. You will have the option of having a mini facelift plastic surgical procedure performed awake under local anesthesia or twilight sedation, which generally results in a more pleasant and relaxing experience for you, along with a faster recovery time.
It can also be an excellent cosmetic procedure for younger patients, who are experiencing what is commonly known as “filler fatigue” or “laser fatigue,” which often occurs in patients in their 30s and 40s who have been using injectable fillers, anti-wrinkle injections, lasers, and facial tightening devices to keep themselves looking young and rejuvenated.
Deep plane facelift
The Deep Plane Facelifts has slowly grown in popularity due to its ability to produce more natural-looking and longer-lasting results. Unlike traditional facelifts that rely on more superficial skin tightening, these “deep” lifting cosmetic plastic surgery procedures elevate or lift the layers of muscle beneath the skin, leaving the skin attached. This allows for a more natural look without giving your facial features that “overly tight” look and reduces the risk of scarring or irregularities.
By releasing all the tethering points and deep planes of the face and performing a comprehensive deep plane lift release between the muscle layers, we can counteract the effects that gravity has incurred over the years. With the release of the deep planes of the face, we reposition the muscles and fat tissue to a more youthful position, which in turn gives the face a lifted, rejuvenated appearance.
In addition, since this advanced technique involves release and repositioning as opposed to the suture pull typically used in the majority of other face lift procedures, there are no opposing tension forces. As a result, patients can enjoy a much longer-lasting result without having to worry about their facelift wearing down over time.
