Dr. D’Amico discusses the mini S-Lift and who are the best candidates.
What is a Mini S Lift?
Mini S Lift is a minimally invasive surgical face lift procedure. It is more mild than a facelift and is for patients with less loose skin than normal facelift patients. Patients with very heavy skin around the neck or jaw are better suited for a standard facelift procedure rather than the the Mini S Lift.
Ideal Patients for Mini S Lift
A Mini S Lift can be performed on younger patients who desire a small touch-up at the jaw line. It is also good for patients who have already gone through a standard facelift surgery but are in need of a touch up a few years down the line.
Can a Mini S Lift be combined with other treatments?
This procedure goes perfectly with other minimally or non-invasive treatments such as ulthera, laser skin tightening and microneedling.
How Long is the procedure?
A Mini S Lift can be performed in about 1-2 hours under local anesthesia. There is little to no downtime and you can be back to work within a day or two.
Is Mini S Lift painful?
Most patients experience little or no pain and can get back to their everyday lives quickly.
