How Does a Mini Facelift Work?
At the Lanfranchi Center, Dr. Lanfranchi performs the TLC Mini Lift, designed for your safety, quick recovery, and excellent results. To perform a mini facelift, your surgeon uses tiny incisions located in the creases of your ears and inside the hairline. The loose skin and tissue of the cheeks, neck, and jaws will be repositioned and lifted.
How is a Mini Facelift Different from a Full Facelift?
A mini facelift targets the jaw, neck, and cheek area using tiny incisions. A facelift, however, requires longer incisions, although these remain hidden in the hairline and around the ears as much as possible.
A facelift may involve a number of different procedures. Each person’s needs are unique, and Dr. Lanfranchi respects every person’s need for a customized procedure tailored to their individual goals.
One significant difference between the two procedures involves recovery time. Most people recover quickly from a mini facelift. Most people take several weeks to recover from a tradional full facelift and see more noticeable bruising and swelling.
