Is the Mini Facelift Right for Me?
It can be daunting to consider your facial rejuvenation options if you’re looking for surgical results, but you should know that not all facelifts are equal. More and more patients are opting for the mini facelift rather than the traditional types because of its benefits. Paired with non-surgical skincare treatments, mini facelifts can produce excellent, refreshed results at the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetic Lounge. Here are some ways to know if you can benefit.
Most plastic surgeons reserve the traditional facelift for patients requiring a more extensive approach to rejuvenation, but that doesn’t mean younger patients can’t benefit. Patients that respond best to the mini facelift are those that are beginning to show signs of aging but still have good skin elasticity and volume. In general, this demographic tends to be patients in their 40’s who are looking to refresh their look without too much downtime.
Despite how advanced non-surgical treatments have become, most patients reach a point where they are no longer able to achieve their goals. In some cases, it even becomes more cost effective to opt for surgery. Many patients that formerly tried injectables and professional skin treatments find that surgery is their next step, and the mini facelift can be a great option if you don’t want anything too extensive. In some cases, patients benefit from Dr. Sadati’s prestigious facial fat transfer techniques using PRP, meaning less downtime and minimally-invasive results.
Although surgery might be the next best option for some patients, others might not be good candidates. This can be for many reasons, including health conditions. It’s important to determine whether you’re ready for a surgical procedure to achieve your goals, and be sure to discuss your concerns with Dr. Sadati during your consultation. He performs facelift procedures under twilight sedation, meaning there’s no risk of reaction to general anesthesia, so many patients find they are able to opt for facelift surgery. If not, Dr. Sadati can recommend the best in non-surgical treatments and skin rejuvenation for your lifestyle and anatomy.
