Mini Facelift Surgery

Not everyone who is considering facial plastic surgery wants or needs a complete facelift. There are preemptive options to address the beginning of sagging and lines in the lower face and neck without a full facelift. Dr. Joseph Rousso, an elite facial plastic surgeon in Manhattan, offers a mini facelift for those who want to improve the youthfulness of their face with a quicker recovery time and natural results.

Aging of the face occurs at different rates for every person. Genetics, health and lifestyle can both play roles on how quickly the skin and tissues in the face age. Some people begin to see lines and drooping around the nose, mouth, jowls and neck in their twenties and thirties, while others may not see these changes until their forties and fifties. A mini facelift can alter these first signs of lost elasticity and tone in the face, delaying the aging process and restoring a youthful appearance.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Mini Facelift?

Dr. Rousso can perform a mini facelift surgery with excellent results for those with minimally sagging and loosening facial skin and tissue. Age is not the determining factor, but the progression of lost elasticity and tone in the skin and tissue in the lower face and neck are reasons to explore this option. The best candidates are those who are beginning to have more accentuated nasolabial folds and marionette lines around the nose and mouth. Slightly heavier jowls and loose skin below the chin and on the neck are also indicators.

The mini facelift may be performed differently for each person and may be combined with other procedures, depending on the desired outcome. Dr. Rousso customizes each procedure to mirror the desired results for the patient. It is always the goal of Dr. Rousso to rejuvenate, not change, the appearance of the individual with any facelift. The desired look should emulate a younger version of the individual for a natural, not “fake” appearance.

If you are interested in restoring your face to a younger version, a mini facelift may be the right option for you. Contact our office in NYC to schedule your consultation and learn more about this and other procedures we offer to help you look your best at any age.
