MiniLift™ Achieves Natural Younger Looking Appearance

MiniLift Achieves Natural Younger Looking Appearance

MiniLift can’t stop this aging process but can turn back the clock, by improving the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and re-draping the skin of the face and neck.  The technique has evolved from simple tightening of the skin to tightening and re-positioning deeper structures like muscle and connective tissues. The goal is to achieve a natural younger looking appearance you deserved.

Aging obviously does not stop in surgery but you’ll look younger by turning back the clock from then on. The length of time of these improvements last will depend on genetics, habits, and skin protection.

In your initial consultation, our board-certified surgeon will evaluate your face, including the skin and underlying bone, and discuss your goals for surgery. Certain medical conditions could cause you problems during or after your surgery, such as uncontrolled high blood pressure, blood clotting problems, or the tendency to form excessive scars. Be sure to tell if you smoke, if you are taking any drugs or medications, especially aspirin or other drugs that affect clotting. Medical professionals will give you specific instructions on how to prepare for surgery and to stop or avoid certain vitamins and medications. Carefully following these instructions will help surgery go smoothly. If you smoke, it’s especially helpful to stop at least a week or two before and after surgery, if possible. Smoking inhibits blood flow to the skin, and can interfere with the healing of your incision areas.

The surgery  takes 3 hours although it can be longer if you’re having more than one procedure done.

There usually isn’t significant discomfort after surgery. If there is, it can be lessened with the pain medication prescribed by the surgeon. Severe or persistent pain or sudden swelling of your face should be reported immediately. Some numbness of the skin is quite normal and it should disappear within a few weeks or months.

By the third week, you’ll look and feel much better. Most patients are back to work within ten days to two weeks after surgery. Any bruising that remains may be covered by special camouflage makeup.
