Mini Facelift

What is a Mini Facelift?

A mini facelift refers to a modified version of a traditional facelift with the goal of lifting only the lower half of your face. This is done primarily to address mild to moderate sagging around the jawline and neck, producing a tighter, more youthful appearance.

A mini facelift is considered to be less invasive and involved than a regular facelift, however it is still a surgical procedure. It can also be combined with other surgical procedures such as a brow lift
or lower blepharoplasty.

Why Should I Have a Mini Facelift?

A mini facelift is an excellent option for mature patients who haven’t yet experienced enough sagging or other signs of aging to warrant a full facelift but need something more intense than fillers, Daxxify, or other non-surgical techniques. A mini facelift is less invasive and typically more affordable, yet yields amazing results.

How Do I Prepare for a Mini Facelift?

Remove makeup and jewelry prior to your appointment. Additionally, you should inform your surgeon of the medications you’re taking, particularly supplements, NSAIDs, and blood-thinning medications. You may need to stop the use of these, but do not do so without the permission of your prescribed physician.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Mini Facelift?

Ideal candidates are healthy adults with mild to moderate signs of aging and realistic expectations about the outcome. A consultation with a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Jae Kim is necessary to determine whether you qualify.

I really enjoyed my visit to Dr. Kim’s office. From the moment that I walked in, the staff was extremely welcoming and friendly. Dr. Kim is very educated and easy to talk to. He really took the time to listen and to try to make sure you knew what would be best for you. Another bonus is he brings his cute little dog to the office with him. I would100% recommend him and his staff. Pam K.
Visiting Dr.Kim’s office has been a wonderful experience thus far. His staff makes me feel happy and assured at every visit. Of course, the man of the hour has always been calm, humble and tends to humor me at every comment and answers every question that has came up in our visits. I believe I have made the right choice to receive Dr. Kim’s medical expertise as being under his hands, he has been gentle during the operation as well as produced excellent results. (Biggest plus, I have never felt rushed under his care lol you’re the bomb Dr. Kim!!!! Jennifer C.
After interviewing several physicians I decided to go with Dr. Kim. Professionalism is extremely important to me but so is the character of the physician, the attitude, and personality. He made me feel comfortable, he was confident but not arrogant. I trusted his expertise and I was not disappointed. Thank you Dr. Kim! Judy G.
I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kim for Asian eyelid surgery (upper eyelid blepharoplasty)!!! My results turned out better than I could have ever imagined. Dr. Kim really took the time to listen to me and what I wanted. Together, we carefully planned out where the eyelid crease would be, and it is exactly where we had planned! I also had a quick and somehow painless recovery, which I’m sure much of that can be owed to his excellent surgical technique. I feel so much more beautiful and confident after this surgery. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner in life. Thank you, Dr. Kim, for quite literally changing my life, and thank you to his wonderful staff who made this such a pleasant and efficient experience! JA
