Los Angeles Mini Face Lift

Read about The Awake Face Lift by Dr. Hoenig as seen on NBC-TV Los Angeles, California

A mini-lift is a facelift with shorter incisions and less skin removal. It is ideal for people with the early signs of aging or those who have a had a previous facelift and want a touch up. Since the incisions are shorter and there is less involvement with the deeper structures (fat and muscle), the results are less dramatic and may be shorter lasting.

Some patients having mini facelift surgery may also require a neck lift, neck liposuction, or neck muscle repair (platysmaplasty) for more extensive neck treatment. Since a mini face lift does not change the quality of the skin itself, a chemical peel or laser resurfacing is often performed in the same setting.

Usually late 30s to early 40s, however in some cities including Los Angeles, face lift surgery may be performed earlier, depending on the patient's needs.

Los Angeles Mini Face Lift Surgical Technique:
The incision is made in front of the ear, inside the ear, and then extends behind the ear by the earlobe. The skin, fat, and muscle are separated, lifted and then re-draped to a more youthful-appearing position. Often times, the fat and muscle are sutured in place to prevent premature descent. Dr. Hoenig is an expert in the deep plane face lift, SMAS lift, and other advanced facelift surgery techniques. Extra care is taken in suturing the incision to minimize the scar, rendering it virtually invisible after the initial healing period.

Los Angeles Mini Face Lift Surgical Time and Recovery:
Mini face lift surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under local and/or tumescent anesthesia with oral or IV sedation and usually takes 2 to 3 hours. Stitches are removed in 7 to 10 days. Most patients return to work after 1 to 2 weeks. For patients interested in traveling to Bevelry Hills or Los Angeles, face lift surgery necessitates usually a minimum one week stay.

Related Procedures:
Mini face lift surgery in Los Angeles is often combined with blepharoplasty, browlift, necklift, fat transfer, botox, and chemical peels or laser resurfacing.
