A well-contoured jawline and lower face can take years off your appearance; look the age you feel!
Ideal candidates for a mini-facelift are younger patients displeased with the general laxity of the lower face and jawline. Patients for any surgical procedure should be in good health and understand aesthetic surgery’s realistic limits, such as the difference between a facelift and a mini-facelift. Dr. Abramson offers both procedures and will discuss which one is right for you during your consultation.

Preparing For A Mini-Facelift
Dr. Abramson suggests the following guidelines for surgery preparation. A mini-facelift is still surgery, so it is essential that you prepare entirely leading up to your procedure.
A mini-facelift procedure takes around five hours, all told, with the total surgical time lasting about three hours. The entire five hours include:
Because the procedure takes place under local anesthesia, patients will be awake but relaxed, and unable to feel anything. Dr. Abramson will evaluate the overall structure of the face to account for balance and a harmonious outcome after the mini-lift. He will make two small incisions – the “S-lift” – to access and lift the underlying tissues before removing excess skin. Incisions are closed with sutures after the skin is redraped to achieve natural-looking and lifted results. (5)
Recovery From A Mini-Facelift
Dr. Abramson and his team will ensure you have all the postoperative directions necessary to help you recover comfortably, including wound care, how to shower, and pain-relieving medication. With Dr. Abramson’s approval, most patients can return to normal activities within two weeks.
Immediately following surgery, bandages and a facial wrap provide protection and subtle pressure to relieve swelling. Swelling should disappear after two to four weeks. (1) Patients will be observed before being sent home with the help of a friend or family member alerted ahead of time. Because you have already filled your pain medication prescription, you will experience a smooth transition into at-home recovery. Patients should remember that being in optimal health will improve the speed of recovery. Part of health is knowing your body’s limitations, so rest is crucial; it is one of the most important recovery tools at your disposal. Finally, remember to stay hydrated and ask for help when you need it.
Results vary, as you will see with Dr. Abramson’s before and after gallery. The underlying facial structure, skin laxity, and patient health all contribute to varying results.
It is essential to remember that a mini-facelift addresses the lower face only, and so results are more subtle than a traditional facelift procedure. However, a mini-facelift can easily shave ten years off the appearance. So while surgery will never stop the clock, there is comfort in knowing it can be reset!
If there are areas of the face of concern that a mini-facelift does not address, Dr. Abramson will recommend complementary procedures.
