Unfortunately, at some point during our lives, all of us will become familiar with the obvious and unavoidable signs that we have begun to age. The wrinkles that plague our face, the drooping skin and the lost jawline are just some of the symptoms that you might expect to see. However, sun damaged skin, brown spots, and fine wrinkles also go some way to ruining a youthful appearance.
In the past, treatments for such ailments have involved the use of chemical peels and surgery, but now CO2 laser resurfacing could be an option that allows individuals to avoid the expense and discomfort of going under the knife. With this innovative technology, renowned Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Shoib A. Myint has begun to offer patients a non-invasive and easier way to reclaim their youth.
Amazing Mini Facelifts for a Radiant Appearance
Today, the mini facelift has emerged as a popular alternative for many to the regular facelift, when there are only a few problematic areas on the face to target and improve. If you believe that you have some issues with particular areas on your face, such as the skin around your nose and lips, or your neck and jaw, you can have a mini face lift done to push back the signs of aging and revitalize your appearance.
The term ‘mini’ was originally used to inform potential clients that this type of facelift would be used to treat smaller areas than a traditional, full facelift, which provides remedies to the entire face. However, there are various other things about a mini facelift which can be regarded as smaller than the original option, including the cost, the recovery time, and how long the procedure takes to complete. Renowned Oculo-Facial Plastic Surgeon Shoib A. Myint, the founder of Myint Facial Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, performs these effective treatments as a way to address your precise needs in these areas.
The mini face lift procedure
During the procedure of a mini face lift, Dr. Myint makes small incisions along the front part of the ear without going behind the ear into the hairline otherwise known as a “short scar incision.” From these incisions, the skin tissue and muscle are carefully lifted and adjusted to provide a more youthful appearance. Some of the most common areas that can be treated using a mini face lift are the issues of minor sagging which begin to appear around the cheeks, jowls, and neck.
Typically, the side effects and risks that are associated with mini facelifts are substantially less than those that are associated with fuller facelifts. Recovery time is also shorter in most cases, with most people experiencing the benefits of the procedure within two days. However, there are some limitations with mini facelifts. For example, it is not the type of surgery that is typically used to address issues with the forehead or brow. This doesn’t mean, however, that significant results are not seen within the lower area of the face.
The impact of mini facelifts
Mini facelifts are growing rapidly in popularity, possibly due to the fact that they are relatively cheap, and quick procedures that can actively enhance the natural beauty if of a face. Some experts regard mini facelifts to be a form of preventative cosmetic surgery because it can assist in removing the signs of aging before they set into the skin.
They are also considered to be low-stress treatment options, because they are less invasive than some brow or complete lifts. Often, patients can be discharged almost immediately after having a mini face lift treatment, without having to suffer a significant deal of worry or pain. Less anesthesia can be required, and the expenses of the surgery are typically kept relatively low. Typically this can be done in an office surgical suite without intravenous sedation.
