The mini facelift procedure is an excellent choice for patients who wish to address common signs of aging, such as drooping skin and wrinkles on the face and neck, without undergoing more invasive traditional facelift procedures or short lasting treatments, such as anti-wrinkle injections.
Mini facelifts performed by Dr. Chaowen Wu always appear natural without having a pulled or stretched appearance. We also offer a variety of other procedures, including the Deep Plane Facelift, Ponytail Facelift, and SMAS Facelift, as well as Neck Lift, Facial Fat Transfer, Eyelid Surgery, Brow Lift and nose job (rhinoplasty)
With Dr. Wu, you also have the option of having a mini facelift plastic surgical procedure performed awake under local anesthesia or twilight sedation, which generally results in a more pleasant and relaxing experience for you, along with a faster recovery time.
It can also be an excellent cosmetic procedure for patients who are experiencing what is commonly known as “filler fatigue” or “laser fatigue,” which often occurs in patients in their 30s and 40s have been using injectable fillers, anti-wrinkle injections, lasers, and facial tightening devices to keep themselves looking young and rejuvenated.
As you age and continue to use these short-term fixes, the benefit of these treatments lessens. Your face will require more and more filler and lasers escalating the cost, and unintended side effects such a larger more masculine forehead from weakening muscles.
In these cases, a mini facelift or another facial plastic surgery procedure, such as the deep plane facelift, can be a nice option for a less invasive and longer-lasting facial rejuvenation.
