This is a wonderful option for anyone who wishes to pursue a minimal downtime yet highly effective solution for wrinkles, folds and sagging in the lower face. Local anesthesia is typically all that is required, so you will enjoy a faster recovery and be back to your normal routine in no time.
Dr. Lee suggests that candidates for a mini facelift be of sound mind and body, with no major medical issues to contend with. Patients should be non-smokers, with realistic expectations for their surgical results. In addition, the following criteria are suggested:
“Dr. Lee is professional and personable. She makes you feel so welcomed and makes sure to listen to your concerns. I love my results. She is attentive to details and makes sure you're happy with the results. I highly recommend her!”
All sutures will be removed within about 5-7 days. Any discomfort is often well-controlled with prescription pain medications issued by Dr. Lee. Within one week you will be able to resume your normal activities, and exercise at two weeks.
Your scars will be nicely hidden behind your ears. Full aftercare instructions will be provided and you will come into the office for follow up visits to ensure your recovery is on track.
