Mini face lift surgery
There are two major procedures, such as anterior and posterior mini face lift. They both differ in the area they are performed. The anterior mini face lift is carried out to improve the lower face area. It will begin in the region in front of the ears with anesthetic injected to create local anesthesia. Incision line starts in front of the ears and follow up to the hairline. The skin is detached from the underlying tissue, fat tissue is removed and muscles tightened. Then the surgeon pulls the skin and tightens it with deep sutures, removing the excess skin. The procedure may last from 40 to 90 minutes. Another modification of mini face lift is a posterior mini face lift to improve the neck and jowl region. The procedure begins with the injection of anesthetic into the area behind the ears. The surgeon makes an incision behind the ear and drives it to the hairline. Then, he/she pull the skin gently up, tighten it with a few deep sutures and remove the excess skin. The procedure also lasts from 40 to 90 minutes. Cost of mini face lift
The cost of the procedure is smaller than that of a full face lift. It differs from state to state, the average cost of mini face lift in the United States is from $3,500 to $6,500.
