Mini Face Lifting
A mini facelift (also known as a cheek lift) is a particularly gentle facelift. The operation is less complex and there are fewer scars. The rejuvenating effect appeals primarily to women over the age of 40, in whom the formation of wrinkles is not that advanced. That is why the procedure is less complicated and cheaper. Sagging cheeks, which are responsible for a sad facial expression, can be corrected with cosmetic surgery.
A mini facelift is usually performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. However, twilight sleep or general anesthesia are also possible. First, the skin coat is detached with an incision in front of and above the ear. The skin is then detached from the underlying structures and pulled straight in the vertical direction towards the ear.
Cosmetic surgeons can also use special adhesives to reposition deep muscles instead of cutting them. This method also reduces scarring and postoperative pain, but it does not allow deep corrections such as those performed by a classic facelift with Aptos threads or face lifting with fillers.
This has a clear lifting effect that lasts for up to 10 years. The advantage of this method over a conventional facelift is that only small skin areas need to be raised from the underlying tissue and thus there are no large scars behind the ear as after classic facelifts.
The mini facelift is becoming an increasingly popular operation in the field of cosmetic surgery. The procedure, which is less complex and therefore cheaper than a classic facelift, is suitable for women who do not want to undergo full facial rejuvenation and who only want to get rid of sagging cheeks. In addition, the less aggressive treatment method means that fewer to no complications occur. However, a mini facelift also has some disadvantages. The effects are less long-lasting and the risks of scarring are somewhat higher.
Advantages of the mini facelift
The advantages of this type of facelift are:
Shorter incisions: The incisions are shorter than with a classic face lift or cheek lift and run mainly in front of and behind the ear. Thus, the scars will be hidden in the hairline after treatment. However, since they are still visible on short hair, this type of facelift is more common among women with long hair.
Short operating time: A mini facelift can usually be performed within an hour under local anesthesia. A full face lift can take up to four hours.
The mini facelift differs from the classic facelift in three areas:
– In the mini facelift, the incisions are smaller and therefore the scars are shorter than in a classic facelift.
– The skin is not pulled from side to side as in a classic facelift. The incision is only made directly behind the ear, with which the skin can be pulled upwards. This leads to less risk of nerve damage (especially if you have a lot of pain), and there is also less tension on the skin, which means that there are fewer wrinkles afterwards.
– The muscles are not stretched during surgery. That’s why this type of operation is often more gentle and therefore more suitable for younger patients (over 40 years old).
