“THE NEXT GENERATION OF FACIAL REJUVENATION TECHNIQUES CREATES BEAUTY BY COMBINING THE BEST OF SURGERY AND NON-INVASIVE APPROACHES.”- DR. KIM
A minimally invasive procedure, the Mini Facelift is prized for getting rid of wrinkles, lifting the jowls and redefining the chin and neck area. At Bellava, Dr Chang Soo Kim, specializes in all the latest advances in facelift procedures including the Mini Facelift , which he performs using local anesthesia in our state-of-the-art, Joint-Commission-accredited surgical suite.
HOW DOES A MINI FACELIFT DIFFER FROM A FULL FACELIFT?
The Mini Facelift addresses the mid to lower portion of the face and involves using smaller incisions than a full facelift. It is ideal for patients, often in their 40s or 50s who have signs of aging in the mid to lower face but not an extremely large amount of sagging skin in the jaw and/or neck area. In some cases the Mini Facelift is performed with noninvasive options such as laser liposuction of the neck and/or laser skin resurfacing for beautiful, overall results.
During the Mini Facelift procedure, Dr. Kim makes a short incision behind each ear. He then removes the excess skin and fat and redrapes the overlying skin to smooth out wrinkles, redefine the jawline and tighten the neck area. The results are immediate and simply amazing: a younger, natural-looking as opposed to “tight” appearance is restored.
Recovery: Patients usually wear a bandage for 48 hours and sutures are removed after about five days. Remarkably, Mini Facelift patients are usually back to work in less than a week.
