MINI FACELIFT RECOVERY TIME
I like the idea of the mini facelift because it is much less invasive that a full facelift. Most of my cosmetic problems are with the lower half of my face including my neck, lower cheeks and jowls. Does this make me a good candidate for this mini facelift? How does the mini facelift recovery time differ from the traditional facelift recovery time?
I would have to see you or at least a photo of you to give you a good idea about what type of facelift would be best for you. I do many mini-facelifts. Many patients like the fact that the procedure can be done in my office under local anesthesia. I also do mini-facelifts in the hospital and surgicenters for patients who want to go to sleep for the procedure. Most mini-facelift patients are able to return to work and their every day activities after 10 days or less with a mini-facelift. I tell traditional facelift patients that a 2 week recovery period is typical.
