Mini Facelift Surgery

The first signs of facial aging appear slowly, but they become more noticeable over time. As the skin and tissue atrophy, small lines and wrinkles appear, along with lost firmness and volume. Facelift surgery is the gold standard for rejuvenating the face, but a full rhytidectomy is not needed in the earliest aging stages. At HMS Plastic Surgery in Miami, FL, we offer a mini facelift surgery for those with the first signs of facial aging.

What Is a Mini Facelift?

The difference between a “mini” facelift and the traditional version is the size of incisions and the extent of lifting required. Most patients seeking a mini facelift are anywhere from their late thirties to early fifties, when significant tissue sagging has not occurred, but there is some loss of firmness. The incisions are made near the ear, hidden behind the hairline. Excess skin is removed, and the lower face, jawline and upper neck are tightened.

A mini or “weekend” facelift is a great way to stay ahead of the aging process. Instead of waiting for the more severe sagging to occur where a full facelift is needed, the mini version retains a more youthful appearance. This can delay the need for a more extensive facelift for several or more years. Some of the benefits of the mini facelift include:

  • Discreet, small incisions
  • Smooths lines and folds in the lower face
  • Tightens the jawline and upper neck
  • Reduced recovery time – usually less than a week

Dr. Harry Salinas is a very talented and board certified plastic surgeon who can create stunning results with mini facelift surgery. His fine-tuned surgical skills and artistic eye can refresh your facial appearance discreetly and naturally, making you look more like your younger self.

My oncologist recommended Dr. Salinas for my bilateral mastectomy reconstruction and I couldn’t be more grateful. He is not only an excellent professional but also a very kind human being.

Dr. Harry Salinas is an absolutely amazing doctor! I am a petite woman and due to menopause, my breast became very large affecting my back, neck and shoulders. Dr. Salinas performed a breast reduction and breast lift surgeon. Dr. Salinas invested a significant amount of time explaining the procedure. He was incredibly accommodating as regards to my schedule. He and his staff were always available for prompt follow up on any questions. The results were far beyond my expectations. My only regret is that I waited so long to have the procedure. Dr. Salinas has changed my life! I highly recommend Dr. Salinas for his skill, professionalism, kindness and good heart!
