Mini Face Lift


ACHIEVE THE REAL RESULTS THAT REVERSE THE SIGNS OF AGEING

The Mini Facelift procedure allows you LESS Downtime LESS Scarring LESS Bruising

Why Have A Mini Face Lift?

During the course of ageing, the face appearance changes and this area, more than any other area of the body determines how the outside world sees us. We cannot avoid ageing, however, the mini face lift can recapture some of what we have lost over time, whether it be the signs of everyday stress, sun damage, gravity or just feeling our age.

If you are opting for a mini face lift, exceptional results can be achieved with modern less invasive treatment.  Generally the result our patients require is an all round younger appearance.

Not all patients are suited for a Mini Face Lift. Dr Araghi will assess your anatomy, your skin, your goals and your concerns during a thorough consultation wherein the procedure and a customised treatment plan will be discussed in detail with you.

What Is A Mini Face Lift?

A mini face lift is a surgical procedure done under partial sedation. Local anaesthetic is also used to numb the skin and deep tissues.

This lift allows gradual changes which can be spread over time without the obvious drastic effects of a “full” facelift. This course of action fits in with the natural ageing process and allows corrections at appropriate times. It is a case of “maintenance rather than rescue”.

The incision line is placed in front of the ear and extends behind the earlobe. The length and pattern of the incision depends on the patient's needs. The incision lines will be concealed within the fold where possible.  A detailed discussion will be undertaken between patient and Dr Ali Araghi.
