As we go through life, we can feel at times like we have the weight of the world on our shoulders. But as we age, we realize it’s not just our shoulders, it’s our whole body. Over time, the tissue and muscles of the face can and do start to sag, making us look tired and worn down. Our world-class cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Ioannis Glavas, has a procedure that may be the right option to restore that youthful appearance.
A mini-facelift – also know as S lift, MACS lift or SMAS lift – is a cosmetic procedure with all the benefits of a facelift but with minimal scarring. Traditional face lifts require a more prominent, slightly larger incision. With a mini facelift, Dr. Glavas makes a single, small incision behind the ear and tightens the subcutaneous tissues as well as the skin, removing the excess. The procedure takes about two hours and patients can go home the same day. Some swelling and bruising may occur, but should go down in 7 to 10 days. For most, healing time is anywhere from 2 to 3 weeks.
Mini facelifts are an excellent cosmetic option for patients looking for a more natural, non-surgical effect. Think of how often you’ve stood in front of the mirror – pushing and pulling – to try and find that younger you. Wouldn’t you like to see him or her again? Call us today to schedule a comprehensive evaluation with Dr. Glavas to determine which cosmetic options are right for you so you can truly love what you see.
