A mini facelift smooths lines and wrinkles while adding definition to the chin and jawline. A mini facelift works like a traditional facelift but with smaller incisions and less recovery time. 

Dr. Rankin uses his signature technique to perform every facelift and adjusts it as needed. This procedure lifts and contours your features, especially in the mid to lower face, giving you a smoother, more youthful appearance.

A mini facelift is a version of the regular facelift, but Dr. Rankin uses smaller incisions. A mini facelift provides less intensive results but may be ideal for those who want to treat mild to moderate signs of aging proactively. 

Dr. Rankin typically finds that a mini facelift offers an ideal solution for most people under the age of 50. Most people over this age will benefit from a standard facelift. However, each individual ages differently and will require a different strategy. In any case, the core of Dr. Rankin’s surgical strategy stays the same. He adjusts each step of the procedure to address your unique needs.

The best candidates for a mini facelift have concerns like:

  • Developing creases around the mouth and lower face
  • Minor to moderate skin laxity
  • Loss of jaw definition

If you have significant sagging skin, deeper creases, or more advanced signs of aging, Dr. Rankin will customize your facelift to treat these issues. Each facelift is unique, with “mini facelift” as a term for those that fall on the least intensive end of the spectrum.

A mini facelift typically has less recovery time than a more intensive facelift. Most people can return to work in one to two weeks. You can usually resume your usual exercise routine and other activities within about four weeks. 

If you are preparing for an event (wedding, birthday, vacation, reunion, etc), we recommend facial rejuvenation no less than 8-12 weeks before your big day, in order to ensure appropriate healing and full activity. If you are interested in facial rejuvenation, I encourage you to reach out to us. We would be happy to answer your questions and schedule a complimentary consultation

When it comes to a facelift, the skill and experience of your surgeon will determine the quality of your results. Dr. Rankin is a highly trained and meticulous surgeon who focuses on excellence. Unlike skin only, or cookie cutter procedures, he uses his proven strategy to customize your results.
