Patients who want to reverse early signs of aging but aren’t quite ready for a full facelift may be candidates for a procedure known as a minilift. This surgical procedure utilizes smaller incisions to remove excess skin and tighten tissue, resulting in positive results with less discomfort and downtime than a full facelift procedure. A minilift is often recommended to patients between the ages of 40 and 60, with good skin elasticity and moderate signs of aging.

3 year old female referred to us by her friend who had a facelift with Dr. Madnani. She was not happy with the sagging skin in her lower face and wanted to know what the best option for rejuvenation would be. She underwent a mini lift (a short incision around the front and back of the ear with tightening of the SMAS) and here she is 5 month afterwards looking much fresher and rejuvenated. Her jawline and neck are improved. She is now undergoing further maintenance treatments with CO2 laser to help the sun spots on her skin, facial fillers for volumizing and botox to help with the crows feet, forehead and glabellar wrinkles. I have also included a close up of her ear incisions so you can see how well they heal in most patients.You can watch the mini lift video on our youtube channel.*
