Facelift experts help you look better through a mini facelift

Charlotte’s best facelift specialist recommends a mini facelift to help regain your appearance. Age-related skin elasticity loss causes fine lines, wrinkles, creases, and sagging skin, particularly around the neck and jowls. There are several techniques to rejuvenate your appearance, ranging from invasive procedures like dermal fillers to minimally invasive procedures like laser resurfacing and microdermabrasion.

Facelifts, in which the surgeon trims the underlying muscles and removes extra skin, have been performed since the early 1900s. The lower half to two-thirds of the face has always been the focus of the surgery, notwithstanding changes. The “mini” facelift is a modified form of the standard operation that was developed in the current day, where fewer incisions are used, recuperation times are shortened, and the approach is designed to provide a more realistic-looking result than was previously achievable. Find out more about this procedure and how to determine if you’re a good candidate.

Getting a mini facelift

When you’re young, you have a lot of collagen, a fibrous, structural protein that helps give your skin strength and tone. Unfortunately, production begins to decline at about age 25, which eventually results in wrinkles and sags. You can therefore begin to look older than you feel earlier than you anticipated.

Facelifts have however traditionally been thought of as a cosmetic operation reserved for adults 60 and older. You need a mini one if any of the following apply to you:

  • Jowl skin that has sagged
  • The skin on the neck is becoming loose (but not drooping).
  • Moderate reduction of facial volume
  • A desire for a jawline that is more sculpted
  • Yearning for a younger appearance

If you want a facelift but would prefer a quicker recovery, a micro facelift is the right choice.

Recovery

Following a routine facelift, patients often return to their regular activities after about two weeks (intense activity after about four weeks). A micro facelift, however, only needs around half of that recovery period and carries a decreased risk of infection and other problems. However, because every patient recovers on their own schedule, your doctor provides you with specific aftercare and activity guidelines. Following this surgery, normal edema and bruising peak two days after surgery. After 10–14 days, it should be impossible to detect them.
