This surgery is performed by making an incision in front of the ear that does not continue behind the earlobe as in the Facelift. Only saggy cheeks are lifted (not the neck area). A mini facelift may also include chin liposuction.
The procedure can be completed by the application of temporary tightening threads or by an Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty). In most cases, minimal swelling is experienced after surgery. Stitches are removed on the 10th day. If your face looks fine, you can go back to work after 2 days following surgery.
Other characteristics of Mini Facelift: It carries the same risks and requires the same after care, studies and pre-surgical instructions as a Facelift. (See: Facelift)

» Hospitalization: In most cases, hospitalization is not required. After the surgery, a 4-hour recovery period at the clinic is required. You may then move to your place of accommodation.
