Before & After Liquid Facelift


What does a mini face lift do?

A mini face lift can help improve the lower 2/3 of the face. It does not do anything for the brow (Botox or brow lift) or eyelids (lasers, Thermage or Blepharoplasty).

How does the passage of time affect the face?

  • The passage of time results in loss of facial volume. The skin thins as does the layer of fat beneath the skin. Structures supporting the skin such as muscles and bone also thin. So, what can be done? Volume loss requires volume restoration. This can be accomplished with fillers ranging from synthetic materials such as Juvederm, Restylane and Radiesse to your own living fat and stem cells. Sometimes, skin has sagged enough so that some lifting and trimming is needed in order to achieve the desired amount of freshening. Surgical lifting is known as rhytidectomy and can help improve the signs of aging such as sagging, creases, loose skin and reduced or misplaced fat deposits. Lifting is not a substitute for fillers and anyone requiring a lift will benefit from volume restoration using fillers.

Who can consider a mini face lift?

  • Face lifts should not be used to try to change one’s life situation or deal with depression. A patient who is in good general health, is a non-smoker, has a stable weight and a good realistic outlook may consider the procedure. Face lifts as with other aesthetic-cosmetic procedures should not be done because someone else thinks you should. They should only be done if they are something you desire for yourself.

  • At MilfordMD Surgery & Laser Center, even if a face lift is advisable, we know that it is important to restore the face volumetrically and to address skin texture and tone with laser and radiofrequency tightening devices. If after restoration additional tightening is desired, this may be accomplished with a mini-face lift (or short scar lift, “S” lift).

How is a mini face lift performed?

Mini face lifts are an outpatient procedure and you will spend a few hours in our out patient facility. Only local skin anesthesia is required. The mini lift utilizes incisions placed in the normal skin creases in front of the ears. The mini face lift works first under the skin where facial muscles (SMAS) are tightened. This allows for repositioning of skin, removal of excess and results in tightening and a decrease in sagging. You will have some swelling and small stitches, mostly hidden under the skin. You may have some bruising and you should plan on having a week where you don’t have to go out in public. The sutures are removed 7 days after the procedure. The lift helps to pull out wrinkles and faci\al contours are improved.

What is the cost of a Mini Face Lift at MilfordMD?


Are face lifts permanent and how long do they last?

While the appearance of age can be improved, cosmetic procedures do not stop the passage of time. For example if procedures helped you look 10 years younger, one year from now you will look an additional year older. A mini face lift may” last” 5-10 years.
