About the mini-lifting procedure
The mini-facelift procedure is a less aggressive surgical procedure than the classic facelift. The intervention is performed through small incisions around the hairline to lift the lower half of the face and thus correct sagging skin due to collagen loss. This occurs with the passage of time and advancing age.
The procedure is addressed to patients who want a more rested and rejuvenated look, with a permanent effect. The main purpose of this intervention is to correct sagging skin with an aged, tired effect.
How is the mini-lifting procedure performed?
A mini-facelift is a surgical intervention that corrects the signs of aging and focuses on correcting sagging skin.
Specialist doctors perform the procedure by “lifting” the skin through small incisions made along the hairline or above the ear. The surgeon will then lift the skin tissues and remove the remaining excess to correct the flabby, lifeless appearance.
The intervention is performed under anesthesia, for the patient’s comfort throughout the operation.
The final result will not be noticed immediately after the intervention. The skin has suffered trauma (local incisions), so it will be inflamed after the operation.
After a few days, the area will begin to heal and the inflammation will subside.
The post-intervention recovery time is approximately 10-14 days, during which the patient will avoid exertion and follow the doctor’s recommendations.
In a few weeks, the final effect will be visible, and the patient will begin to enjoy the result.
The rules after mini-lifting intervention
After about 10 days the threads will be removed. It is important to know that the sutures are small, in hard-to-reach areas, in the extremities of the face, to avoid unsightly scars.
It is possible that after the operation the patient will have a little discomfort, but if it worsens, we recommend contacting us.
We recommend sleeping/sitting in bed with your head slightly elevated and avoiding hot showers or saunas.
Avoid intense physical activities and make sure to hydrate properly.

What is the difference between facelift and mini facelift?
Compared to the classic facelift, the mini facelift is aimed at patients who want a rejuvenated, natural look. Patients who can use this procedure are aged between 35 – 50 and want a slight facial contouring and a natural lifting effect.
Can I achieve the same effect through minimally invasive interventions?
Indeed, there are also minimally invasive procedures that offer a rejuvenated appearance, but their remanence is limited and the effect is not natural, as in the case of facelifts. Among the anti-aging procedures that patients can opt for are: wrinkle fading with botulinum toxin or facial geometry (with wires or hyaluronic acid). Depending on the needs of each patient, the doctor can recommend the best option during a consultation.
