Even if you have cared for your skin over the years, eventually age will impact the appearance of your facial skin. The visible impact of aging such as skin laxity, deep lines and wrinkles, loss of volume, and the sagging jowls can leave you feeling unhappy – and less confident. A mini facelift is a less invasive, but very effective way to restore the mid-face. Dr. Leslie Stevens is recognized as a top facial plastic surgeon who often works with top celebrities to need to look their best.
A mini facelift is a less-invasive option to a full facelift which addresses the development of jowls, wrinkles, and creases affecting the mid and lower face. A mini facelift achieves a remarkably fresh, natural look when performed correctly. The procedure is appropriate for patients who want to:
A mini facelift addresses the skin and tissue of the mid and lower face, along with restoring underlying muscle and connective tissue. The face is lifted and repositioned with a specialized surgical technique that is far more effective than older facelift methods – with results that are exceptionally natural in appearance, not pulled, tight, or positioned in a manner that makes it obvious you had “work done.” The mini facelift is less invasive than a traditional facelift and involves a shorter recovery time.
Your mini facelift will be performed in Beverly Hills’ exclusive Lasky Surgical Center, providing you with privacy and discretion. A mini facelift can be performed using local, twilight, or general anesthesia.
Dr. Stevens will make incisions in front of the ear, with a delicate surgical approach that avoids creating visible scars. The skin of your mid and lower face, as well as the underlying tissue, will be repositioned and elevated into a more youthful – but very natural, position. Fatty tissue may be redistributed into areas of lost volume, restoring a youthful fullness to your cheeks. Excess tissue will be trimmed away, and your incision will be closed with sutures. The procedure takes approximately one to two hours to perform.
You may experience mild to moderate bruising and swelling for one to two weeks following your mini facelift. Most patients, however, only experience mild discomfort – far less than they expected. Dr. Stevens will provide you with prescription pain medication to allow you to be as comfortable as possible while your body heals. You should plan to take one to two weeks off work or other activities while your body heals and avoid strenuous activities, so.
A mini facelift is often combined with other restorative treatments, including an eyelid surgery, a brow lift, laser skin resurfacing, fat grafting, injectable fillers, or a neck lift.

Everyone ages at a different rate, but typically, a mini facelift is an appropriate procedure for patients in their mid-forties or fifties who are experiencing moderate facial sagging and wrinkling, jowls, and sagging skin and tissue along the jawline. Many non-surgical anti-aging treatments can keep you looking younger for far longer than was possible in the past – but eventually, the only way to truly restore your look is to undergo a mini facelift.
While everyone is different, this procedure typically leaves the person looking about eight to ten years younger than they appeared prior to the procedure.
