Mini-face / Cheek Lift

A “mini–facelift” or “limited incision facelift” is an operation designed to give more results through fewer and shorter incisions with a shortened recovery time. Sometimes this has been referred to as the “S” lift or the “vertical” lift. Whereas the traditional facelift utilizes incisions that cross back behind and above the ear into the posterior/occipital hair and temporal hair, mini lifts limit the length of the incisions – sometimes not even transgressing into the posterior hair or limiting the upper scar to just the top of the ear. Each person’s face is different and the optimal approach to address facial issues is chosen individually for each patient.  If there is too much lax and excess skin to be taken up, a traditional facelift may still be the best option for an individual. When performing a patient’s second facelift, often times a limited incision/mini-facelift approach is chosen.*

Cheek Lift

When the central or mid cheek begins to descend, hollowing beneath the lower eyelid occurs at the nasolabial fold (from the base of the nose) and becomes accentuated. Midface lifts lift the central cheek areas, restoring the natural shape and convexity. Several different techniques and approaches are used – depending on the patient’s anatomy. Sometimes a scope is used from the temple hair, other times a lower eyelid approach is used, and these can be combined with a small incision from inside the mouth. Both techniques leave little to no visable scarring and allows for a procedure that restores volume into a more youthful and natural contour.*
