Mini Facelift

Conveniently located to serve Newport Beach, Orange County, and Beverly Hills

Dr. Batniji performs a mini facelift on a Newport Beach patientA mini facelift in Newport Beach is a less-invasive modern version of the conventional facelift and requires less recovery time. Facelifts are well-known cosmetic procedures used to achieve a youthful facial appearance, but not every patient requires a full facelift to achieve their desired degree of rejuvenation.

A mini facelift is a skin-tightening procedure used to target sagging excess skin, mainly on the jaw and neck area. The core difference between a traditional facelift and a mini facelift is the size of the incision. A smaller incision is made and ends behind the ear without extending into the hairline, unlike with a conventional full facelift.

The Mini Facelift Procedure

First, local anesthesia with sedation is administered to the patient to ensure a comfortable and pain-free procedure. Dr. Batniji will proceed with a small incision at the base of the hairline, extending until behind the ear.

He will then remove excess skin and fat and tighten loose muscles. The remaining tissues will be tightened for a more sculpted and defined look. Finally, the incisions will be closed with sutures.

Recovery and Healing After a Mini Facelift

A follow-up checkup is scheduled in 1-2 days after the surgery to ensure that healing is progressing as expected. Patients can move around within a couple of days. Painkillers can be prescribed for tenderness or pain if they are present. Swelling and bruising will also be present for a time.

Avoiding strenuous physical activity is recommended for a period of 2 weeks. Work and routine activities can be resumed within 1-2 weeks.

Some post-op care instructions include the following:

  • Don’t smoke or drink alcohol
  • Avoid any kind of blood thinning medication
  • Don’t partake in strenuous activities that could stress the surgical site
  • Stick to healthy meals

By following post-op instructions, you can reap the long-term benefits a mini facelift has to offer. In fact, the results of a mini facelift can last upwards of 10 years. However, this is only possible by following the recovery instructions provided by your surgeon. Proper healing is essential for the long-term success of your facial plastic surgery.

The Benefits of a Mini Facelift

Because the mini facelift is less invasive, it is easier on the patient’s tissues than a full facelift. It does not require general anesthesia, only local anesthesia with sedation. It has a shorter surgery time and smaller incisions. Recovery after a mini facelift surgery is also quicker and easier, with little to no pain.

Who Is It For?

    • A consultation with Dr. Rami Batniji is the best way to determine which facial procedure is best suited to your specific requirement. There are certain cases where a mini facelift is the ideal option:
      • Younger patients showing only the beginning signs of aging can benefit from a mini facelift. This can prevent excessive sagging and loose muscles that would later need more extensive correction.
      • A person with excess skin only on the jaw, chin, or neck area would benefit more from a mini facelift than from its traditional counterpart.
      • People apprehensive of large post-surgical marks can opt for a mini facelift, which leaves a much smaller mark that is easier to camouflage.

What is the Best Age for a Mini Facelift?

Although there isn’t a specific age that’s optimal for a mini facelift, the best results are seen in those between the ages of 40 and 60. Younger individuals partake in mini facelifts all the time, but it’s ideal to wait until the natural effects of aging start to show. Of course, everyone ages differently, and lifestyle choices, genetics, and other health factors play a part in how you age over time.It also depends on what you’re looking to accomplish, as a mini facelift can offer minor to more significant benefits based on the current state of your health. 

Many people tend to be unsure if a mini facelift is right for them, which is why it’s important to book a consultation with Dr. Batniji. He’ll listen to your questions and concerns while adding his own professional opinion on how he thinks you should approach the situation. 

You also don’t want to feel like you wasted your money on the procedure, which is another reason why it’s usually suggested to wait until the effects of aging start to really show on your face. What most people are looking to mitigate are the signs of wrinkles, sagging skin, and the gradual reduction in facial volume. A mini facelift can help, and it’s most effective for individuals that are 40 or older.
