  • A mini facelift is intended to provide you with natural-looking results. This outpatient procedure will take between two and three hours to complete.

    Where Are My Mini Facelift Incisions Made?

    Mini facelift incisions are shorter than the incisions made during the traditional facelift. Mini facelift incisions are made in discreet areas along the hairline.

    What Is a Traditional Facelift?

    A traditional facelift is more invasive than a mini facelift and requires a more extensive recovery. A full facelift is beneficial for men and women who require a significant amount of correction. A full facelift also takes longer to perform and requires larger incisions.

  • Since mini facelift surgery only targets the lower portion of their face, many patients choose to combine their procedure with blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). Combining the mini facelift with eyelid surgery helps patients achieve a balanced, youthful, and rested appearance.

  • A mini facelift addresses aging concerns in the lower portion of the face. By combining a mini facelift with a brow lift, you can address aging concerns all over the face to allow for a rejuvenated, youthful appearance. A consultation with Dr. Karlinsky or Dr. Kim can help you determine if you are a candidate for combining procedures.

What Are Your Concerns?

  • No overnight stay is required following a mini facelift. You will only be in our office for four to five hours for the procedure and recovery.

    While you will notice significant improvement after only a few days, we recommend that you take one week off work to ensure optimal healing and results.

    Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Kim provide all of their patients with their cell phone numbers so that they can be reached at any time during your mini facelift recovery.

  • Mini facelift surgery is performed using local anesthesia to ensure that you do not feel any pain during the procedure. You may experience minimal pain and soreness during your recovery, but over-the-counter pain medication can be taken as needed to manage the discomfort.

  • Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Kim will place your mini facelift incisions in inconspicuous locations. Mini facelift incisions are small and are placed close to their hairline so that they can be easily concealed. Scars should also fade over time.

  • At New Look New Life, mini facelift surgery starts as low as $6,500. You will be given a detailed quote during your consultation. The cost of your mini facelift will include your surgeon’s fee, anesthesia, operating room fees, required garments, and all of your follow-up visits.

What Are Some Frequently Asked Questions About Mini Facelift Surgery?

  • Mini facelift surgery results will be visible once all of the bruising and swelling subside. Results will continue to improve for the first few months following surgery.

  • 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.

  • Mini facelifts pose fewer complication risks than full facelifts. As with any surgical procedure, the risk of bleeding, infection, and poor scarring is possible.

  • No. Mini facelift surgery only addresses the lower two-thirds of your face. If you are interested in addressing aging signs across your whole face, you may wish to undergo additional facial procedures.

  • Mini facelift surgery provides natural results that allow you to restore a more rejuvenated, youthful version of yourself.

  • For some, the rejuvenating effects of liquid facelifts and facial fillers or injectables, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, Restylane®, Restylane® Lyft, JUVÉDERM®, or RADIESSE®, are enough to achieve the desired results. Patients needing more significant facial improvements to address facial muscles and neck rejuvenation may consider a full facelift procedure, a neck lift, or a brow lift.

  • Proper skin care and sun protection can extend the life of your mini facelift. Most patients enjoy positive results for several years to come.
