A Conservative Alternative
Dr. Chhatre is a fan of the mini facelift because it offers a more conservative approach to facial enhancement and tightening than the traditional facelift. Focusing on the most natural results, Dr. Chhatre provides patients with an honest opinion and does not hesitate to turn away candidates that are not yet in need of this type of procedure. Our ultimate goal is to provide patients with the most realistic looking enhancements, and we work cooperatively with patients to outline personalized treatment on how they can achieve this.
Is a Mini Facelift For Me?
During a consultation with Dr. Chhatre, you will undergo an evaluation to determine whether you are a good candidate for a mini facelift, as well as whether a full facelift would better suit your needs.
A mini facelift is suitable for candidates with one or more of the following:
- Good quality of skin that still retains elasticity
- Little to no sagging in the upper face, brows and eyes
- Slight sagging in the lower portion of the face, around the jowls
After your procedure is complete, a bandage will be placed around the chin and sides of the face to reduce swelling. Patients will undergo checkups to assess healing the day after surgery, and one and two weeks post treatment. During the entire healing period, patients should wear the chin strap (a specialized surgical band) designed to keep the chin’s compression at a 90 degree angle. This not only reduces swelling but ensures even contouring.
