The mini face lift is a procedure commonly performed by Steven J. Covici, MD, FACS that addresses sagging skin and wrinkles to give patients a more youthful look. Also referred to as an S-Lift for its “S” shaped incision, the mini face lift restores definition to the lower third of the face by using small incisions to remove or tighten tissue.
Benefits of Mini Face Lifts
Mini face lifts offer many of the same benefits of traditional face lifts, with smaller incisions and a shorter recovery time. Compared to the full face lift, the S-Lift has fewer side effects, which may include swelling, bruising, and tenderness to a lesser degree than with a full face lift. Since it mainly addresses the lower section of the face, any scars from the incisions are concealed within the natural contours of the face. The procedure can be performed in as little as a few hours with local anesthesia, making for a relatively quick and easy recovery.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for a Mini Face Lift?
Men and women who have experienced a loss of definition in the jaw, sagging skin, or excess fat tissue around the jaw area may be a candidate for the S-Lift. Patients often experience these symptoms as a result of hormonal changes or genetics, but the mini face lift can help restore a youthful look in patients that are otherwise physically healthy. S-Lifts can be performed on patients at any age, and many of our clients elect to have the procedure performed at the first signs of aging.
