Minimally Invasive Facial Rejuvenation Surgery in NYC
The mini facelift is a great option for men and women who want something with more significant and longer-lasting results than facial fillers, but that is also less invasive and requires less downtime than a facelift. With a mini facelift, Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega can help rejuvenate your appearance without keeping you away from your busy schedule for too long.
What is a mini facelift?
A mini facelift is a great procedure for patients who would like to see more significant results than fillers can offer, but do not require the drastic changes of a full facelift. Our surgery team recommends mini facelifts for those who desire less invasive, but highly effective facial rejuvenation.
How is a mini facelift different from a regular facelift?
A mini facelift is designed to tighten the skin of your face for a smoother, more youthful appearance. During a mini facelift, Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega use a less-invasive technique for tightening facial muscles, which enables them to perform the procedure on patients under local anesthesia. Mini facelifts reduce healing and recovery time and are more cost-effective than full facelifts. For many patients, a mini facelift is just enough to achieve the improvements they desire.
When will I see the results of my mini facelift?
Mini facelift results are immediate, though your appearance will continue to improve as bruising and swelling subside.
How should I prepare for my mini facelift?
To optimize healing, we recommend that you quit smoking for the month surrounding your procedure. You will only receive local anesthesia for your mini facelift, but, to ensure comfort, you should still arrange a ride home after the procedure.
How is a mini facelift performed?
During your mini facelift, Dr. Karlinsky or Dr. Vega will skillfully reposition and tighten the skin and muscles of your face. Facial muscles are tightened and the neck is minimally addressed during a mini facelift.
How long does a mini facelift take?
Your mini facelift will be completed in 2-3 hours.
Do I have to stay overnight for a mini facelift?
No overnight stay is required following a mini facelift. You will only be in our office for approximately 4-5 hours during the procedure and recovery.
How long does recovery take?
While you will notice great improvement after only a few days, we recommend that you take one week off from work to ensure optimal healing and results.
What are the mini facelift risks?
Mini facelifts are minimally invasive and pose fewer complication risks than full facelifts. As with any surgical procedure, risk of bleeding, infection, and poor scarring are possible.
Patients experiencing any unusual or concerning symptoms are advised to call Dr. Karlinsky or Dr. Vega’s cell phone immediately.
How long will my mini facelift last?
Proper skin care and sun protection can extend the life of your mini facelift. Most patients enjoy the positive results for several years to come.

What are the alternatives to a mini facelift?
For some, the rejuvenating effects of liquid facelifts and facial fillers or injectables such as Botox, Dysport, Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Juvéderm, or Radiesse are enough to achieve the desired results. Patients in need of more significant facial improvements to address facial muscles and neck rejuvenation may consider a full facelift procedure, a neck lift, or a brow lift.
