The Mini Facelift with Dr. Guy Cappuccino

A “mini facelift” tightens the skin on the lower part of the face, namely the upper neck, jawline, jowls, and around the nose and mouth. The mini facelift procedure is often completed in as little as 90 minutes. Not only does it require less surgical time than a regular facelift,  but it can also be done using a local rather than a general anesthetic. This means it can be done in an office or outpatient setting reducing costs. There is less swelling and recovery time is much faster than a full facelift, typically less than one week.

The Best Candidates for Mini Facelift Surgery

The mini facelift procedure is most successful in those who have just begun to experience the physical signs of aging on the face. It’s ideal for those mild to moderate signs of early facial aging, before the full facelift has become quite necessary. If you are showing fine lines and wrinkles around the lower part of your face, and have not yet experienced severe sagging and drooping of your facial skin, then you would be a good candidate for a mini facelift.

The procedure produces a better-defined jawline and creates a look that sees you looking on the outside as youthful as you feel on the inside. Mini facelifts will not help with advanced facial aging and will have no effect on the forehead or brow area. There is no age restriction for mini-facelift candidates, though most are usually no younger than the late thirties.

The Mini Facelift Procedure

With mini facelift surgery, the incisions are much smaller than those required for a full facelift. Though the placement of the incisions will vary depending on each patient’s needs, the incisions typically start at the hairline and go to the edge of the ear. 

In certain cases, Dr. Cappuccino can also perform liposuction in conjunction with the mini facelift. This procedure can be done using a local anesthetic, which means it can be done on an outpatient basis. Patients can typically return to regular daily activities in two days or less.

During your consultation, Dr. Cappuccino will help you understand exactly what to expect from this procedure, giving you detailed information on everything from incision placement to your aftercare and recovery process. Follow-up appointments will help him track your progress.
