Mini Facelift
in Bucks County, PA, and Hunterdon County, NJ

The mini facelift is the most popular face improvement procedure performed by plastic surgeons. It works by restoring definition to the chin by tightening up facial tissue while removing excess fat. The mini facelift also smoothes out wrinkles and tightens up drooping or sagging skin in the lower part of the face. With two convenient locations in Flemington, NJ, and Doylestown, PA, Buinewicz Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brian R. Buinewicz, offers mini facelifts for adults residing in Bucks County, PA, and Hunterdon County, NJ.

What Is a Mini Facelift?

The "mini" facelift is a more restricted procedure than a full facelift, as it uses only a limited number of incisions. Many people choose to combine a mini facelift with other complementary procedures, such as the neck lift, submentoplasty, cheek tuck-up, and S-lift. The mini facelift works by tightening up and/or removing excess skin in the face to eliminate sagging, drooping and wrinkled skin around the chin and neck that can cause jowls or an unattractive appearance.

Am I a Candidate for a Mini Facelift?

Young adults who are in good health who wish to address issues with the appearance of the lower third of their face may benefit from a mini facelift, as their age prevents the necessity of a full facelift. A mini facelift can also benefit individuals who have previously undergone a full facelift but now need some additional tightening of their facial skin and tissue.

Benefits of a Mini Facelift

A mini facelift is less invasive as it uses fewer incisions. There is a shorter recovery period involved with a mini facelift, and any scarring is usually hidden or minimized. Most individuals report less bruising and swelling with the mini facelift and generally recover much more quickly than after a full facelift.

The Mini Facelift Procedure

Because it involves minimal recovery time, most mini facelifts are performed on an outpatient basis. Depending on the patient's needs, the procedure can be performed either with a local numbing agent or under "twilight" anesthesia that is less intense than general anesthesia. Generally speaking, most individuals undergoing a mini facelift return home the same day of the procedure and will be cleared to resume normal activities within a week. The mini facelift is performed with absorbable sutures that will be removed after a week. Most individuals who undergo a mini facelift can enjoy all of their normal activities following the removal of their sutures.

Mini Facelift Procedure Results

The results of a mini facelift depend on the individual and the extent of the procedure which can vary by the health of their skin, environmental factors, and genetics. Nonetheless, most patients will benefit from the results of a mini facelift between five to 10 years or even longer.
