Facelifts can help patients of any age
Mini facelift is one type of facelift that can help Charlotte, NC residents look younger, and feel more confident in their appearance. There are different types of facelifts that use different techniques, so patients of all ages can fight signs of aging like sagging skin. And while a deep plane facelift may be the best option for older patients, it isn’t always the best option for younger residents or people who have had a facelift before and are starting to see signs of aging again.

The SignatureLift is a technique developed by Dr. Sean Freeman
Dr. Freeman of Charlotte, NC uses a technique called SignatureLift to give patients quick results. Similar to the so called weekend facelift, this procedure does not require patients to be put under general anesthesia, and instead, it can be performed under sedation. However, if you would feel more comfortable under anesthesia, that certainly is still an option.

Dr. Freeman can determine if a mini facelift is a good option for you following an examination in which he assesses the thickness of your skin and the makeup of your face.

Recovery takes about a week
One benefit to a mini facelift is the quick recovery time. While standard facelifts require a few weeks to heal, a mini facelift only requires five to six days. During this time, the sutures will be visible but can be hidden by longer hair. Your surgeon will discuss recovery information with you before your procedure.

Your doctor may recommend additional procedures for best results
A mini facelift can do wonders to help you look and feel refreshed. But, as the name implies, a mini facelift focuses on the mid face and neck. But, as we age, we often find our eyelids begin to droop, and the brow area can get heavy as well. If this is the case with you, your physician may recommend a browlift or eyelid surgery to achieve the results you want and maintain a balanced looking face.
