Natural-Looking Results With A Signature Mini Lift (Facelift).
As we age, our skin loses its natural elasticity and gravity starts to take its toll. This often results in the formation of jowls along the jawline. Facelift procedures have risen to the forefront in recent years as popular options to correct these unwanted effects and prevent further sagging. But, as the number of people seeking facial plastic surgery continues to grow, surgeons have begun utilizing less invasive techniques to produce pleasing results while cutting down on recovery time. Dr. Elizabeth Whitaker’s Signature Mini Lift (Facelift) was designed to do just that.
In years past, women of more advanced ages made up the majority of people seeking facelift surgery to reclaim a youthful appearance. That’s not necessarily the case anymore. Especially in more recent years, both women and men are electing facelift procedures at younger ages to address earlier signs of aging. An increasing trend in the medical aesthetics industry is for people in their 40s and early 50s to choose somewhat less invasive facelift procedures, like the Signature Mini Lift, just as signs of aging are beginning to appear. The Signature Mini Lift offers noticeable results for men and women of varying ages from a less invasive technique featuring a faster recovery time when compared to traditional facelift surgery.
How Does the Signature Mini Lift (Facelift) work?
During the Signature Mini Lift, Dr. Elizabeth uses a technique that involves a minimal amount of shorter incisions that are typically located in the hairline and in the natural creases around the ear. The skin of the cheeks and lower face is lifted and tightened to help redefine the jawline and lessen the appearance of jowling. The Signature Mini Lift may be performed using local anesthesia with relaxation or IV sedation. General anesthesia with gases and intubation is not required.
This technique helps to minimize any scarring from the procedure. Unlike a traditional, more invasive approach, the Signature Mini Lift takes your individual facial structure into careful consideration to achieve the most natural-looking, rejuvenating results. Overall, the procedure helps to address the early signs of aging, which results in significantly delaying the need for more invasive surgery in the future. And with more natural-looking outcomes, Dr. Elizabeth helps her patients avoid the undesired “overdone” appearance sometimes seen with other surgical procedures.
Am I a candidate for a Signature Mini Lift (Facelift)?
The Signature Mini Lift can be a great option for generally healthy adults in their 40s and 50s who are concerned with mild to moderate skin laxity but who still have some degree of elasticity. For those displaying advanced signs of aging in the form of pronounced sagging, a more extensive Signature lift procedure may be a better option to produce a desired outcome. Dr. Elizabeth and her staff will explain all options available to you so you can make an informed decision that will best meet your aesthetic goals.
What can I expect as far as recovery with a Signature Mini Lift (Facelift)?
As with all surgical procedures, you can anticipate some bruising and swelling to occur. These are generally mild in nature. Most patients resume normal activities within about seven to ten days with the exception of exercise. Since every procedure is customized, recovery times will vary based on the individual. But because Dr. Elizabeth’s Signature Mini Lift procedure is designed to be less invasive than traditional facelift surgery, most patients experience shorter recovery times by comparison.
You’ll be sent home with a detailed aftercare plan to promote the fastest healing time possible, and regular follow-up visits will be scheduled to ensure optimal healing is taking place. We’ll thoroughly go over all those details at your appointment and make sure you have a clear understanding of what to expect.
What results can I expect from a Signature Mini Lift?
As you recover from your Signature Mini Lift procedure and any swelling subsides, you’ll start to notice a more youthful, refreshed appearance. While many people experience full results in about 4 to 6 weeks, it may take up to 3 months for some. Every case is different, and results may vary due to a number of factors. We’ll go over everything you can expect during your facelift consultation.
