Mini Face Lift Procedures for Patients in Tampa

mini-faceliftA mini face lift is the perfect, minimally invasive alternative to a traditional, full face lift. This type of plastic surgery is designed to target a specific area of the face for rejuvenation, so it can be tailored to meet the specific needs of the patient. Though a mini face lift does not produce the same dramatic results as a full face lift, it can still greatly reduce the early signs of aging, making it an especially popular choice among men and women in their 30s and 40s. A Mini facelift is also a much more effective procedure than a lifestyle lift, which can’t produce the same longlasting results.

A mini facelift can target trouble spots like:

  • Your neck and jowls
  • The mid-face area, such as your cheeks and nose
  • Your lower eyelids

If you’ve noticed the gradual appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, or even sagging skin in any of these areas, a mini face lift procedure may be the best solution for you.  At the Bayside Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. John Roach performs mini face lifts and other types of cosmetic surgery for patients from Clearwater, Tampa, Lutz, Palm Harbor, and elsewhere throughout Florida. Dr. Roach is well-known for his incredible expertise, as well as his commitment to patient care. He will take the time to educate you on your face lift options, discuss your expectations, and create a plan for the procedure that will best help you meet your appearance goals.

What to expect during and after your mini face lift procedure:

Depending on which area of your face is being treated, Dr. Roach will make small incisions behind your ears or along the hairline. Through these incisions, he will remove a narrow s-shaped section of the skin, before tightening the skin to smooth out any lines and wrinkles. The underlying tissue and muscle will be lifted and repositioned, and the incisions will be sutured after excess skin has been removed.

You’ll likely be able to return home the same day as your surgery, and recovery typically takes about one week. Because this procedure is so minimally invasive, the risks are incredibly low, but include the possibility of a hematoma or infection.
