Face Mini lift
YOUTH HAVE NO AGE!
The mini face lift allows you to keep your youth regardless of your biological age.
The mini face lift is intended to rejuvenate you by tightening the skin, particularly the oval of the face and neck. This will allow you to rejuvenate your face between 5 and 10 years old, when it acts on sagging and sagging areas, especially on the cheeks and jowls.
The mini face lift can also affect other parts such as:
- Crow's feet
- moderate sagging at the roots of the nose and eyebrows.
- the slight double chin.
- Small cervical baleen
- the neck moderately relaxed.
The result of this technique is more discreet than a classic facelift, but the result is much more natural. In addition, the intervention is much less burdensome, leading to faster healing and recovery.
However, for optimal efficiency, we advise you to assign another technique to the mini lift:
- A lipofilling
- Hyaluronic acid injections (lower face) or Botox (upper face).
- a facial implant….
In order to perform this operation, our surgeon is very competent. He has already carried out this kind of operation with very successful results.
You will meet our surgeon as well as the anesthetist through several appointments.
This will allow us to carry out an essential assessment of your person (blood test, skin elasticity, muscle quality, etc.).
A detailed estimate will also be given to you.
Very important, you must stop smoking 1 month before the operation, as well as stopping aspirin 15 days before the operation. All this will be explained to you in detail during your discussions with our doctors.
The operation is performed under local anesthesia, with light sedation and most often on an outpatient basis. If another operation is associated, we can do it all with general anesthesia linked to a 24-hour hospital stay.
Usually the operation lasts between 1h30 and 2h30.
If you can be discharged from the clinic the same day, the postoperative treatment lasts a few days after the operation.
