A mini facelift is a plastic surgery procedure that can resolve sagging facial tissue and excess skin in the lower face. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sam Lam is considered a top provider of mini facelifts in Plano. He carefully tailors every procedure he performs to meet the needs and aesthetic goals of the patient. Even though his full facelift procedures oftentimes have very short recovery times, Dr. Lam’s mini facelift procedure can provide qualified patients excellent outcomes with even less downtime.
What is a Mini Facelift?
The mini facelift procedure involves tightening the jowls and the sagging neck for those who are starting to have signs of gravitational descent but may not need a full facelift to manage the problems. Typically, a mini facelift is intended to straighten a sagging and crooked jowl that cannot be easily managed by in-office procedures like lipo-dissolving or filler sculpting methods, all of which Dr. Lam also performs.
The neck may start to show early signs of platysmal bands (neck banding) along with signs of sun damage to the skin as well. Although a mini facelift does not directly manage neck wrinkles, Dr. Lam believes that tightening the underlying muscle can help indirectly affect the overlying skin excess and sagging and thereby offset some of the wrinkles, but not all. As adjunctive measures, radiofrequency microneedling and mesotox can also offer improvements to the skin as a finishing touch when needed.
Thanks to Dr. Lam, I am happy to look in the mirror every morning! I have been a client for over 20 years and always trusted his judgment on how to achieve and maintain a relaxed, “natural” appearance while looking many years younger than my age. Goal achieved!!
How long is the recovery for Mini Facelift?
In the old days, every facelift was a major procedure with significant downtime lasting weeks and, unfortunately, unnatural results along with visible scarring. Today, recovery times are much shorter, scarring is virtually undetectable, and results look very natural even close up.
Dr. Lam prides himself in achieving natural results with limited downtime and with “invisible” incisions that are well hidden. The mini facelift offers an even faster recovery for the patient whose cosmetic concerns are concentrated in the lower face.
How Much Does a Mini Facelift in Plano Cost?
The price of a mini facelift depends on the specific techniques required for optimal results. The details of your unique procedure and the associated costs will be reviewed with you once Dr. Lam has created your customized treatment plan.
