Mini Facelift in Charlotte, NC

If you are considering a facelift to look younger, we invite you to learn about a mini facelift. This modified procedure is less complex than a full facelift and is perfect for men and women in Charlotte, Salisbury, Harrisburg, Concord and surrounding areas of North Carolina who only need improvement in the lower third of the face. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David F. Klein, offers mini facelifts at his practice, Renaissance Plastic Surgery.

What is a Mini Facelift?

Not all men and women need a full facelift. A mini facelift may be enough to address the signs of aging that make you look tired, aged and stressed. The surgery only requires incisions around the ears rather than in the hairline, and the recovery is shorter than with a full facelift. Dr. Klein will also customize the technique to your individual needs.

Benefits of a Mini Facelift

A mini facelift:

  • Helps with the most obvious signs of aging, which are found in the lower third of the face
  • Improves definition in the jaw and chin area
  • Offers natural-looking results
  • Produces fewer scars compared to a full facelift
  • Is considered a conservative anti-aging surgery
  • Requires a shorter recovery period than a full facelift
  • May not require general anesthesia
  • Is the most commonly performed type of facelift

Who is the Ideal Candidate for a Mini Facelift?

A mini facelift will not correct all signs of aging, but it is very effective for the most prominent problems, such as loose skin and excess fat along the jawline. Dr. Klein will determine if a mini facelift is right for you based on your individual stage of the aging process.

What Do I Need to Do Before a Mini Facelift?

A consultation with Dr. Klein is the perfect way to begin your journey to looking younger and feeling more confident. He will listen to your concerns and explain how a mini facelift will help you. Dr. Klein may also recommend a chemical peel or dermal filler for a full facial rejuvenation.

How Long Does It Take to Perform a Mini Facelift?

A mini facelift is typically performed with local anesthesia and can take three to four hours.

What to Expect After a Mini Facelift

You will need to take at least one week off from work and other activities after your mini facelift. Swelling, bruising and discomfort can take several weeks to resolve. Your face may be covered with a compression bandage, so someone will need to drive you home and stay with you for a few days. Dr. Klein will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress. The first appointment will be the day after your surgery.

Will I Have Scars After Getting a Mini Facelift?

All surgeries cause scars. With a mini facelift, you will have scars behind your ears.

When Will I See the Results?

Give your body about one week to heal before you expect to see the results of your mini facelift. Any results before that time will be masked by the swelling.

How Long Will the Results of a Mini Facelift Last?

This depends on your personal anatomy, but most patients enjoy the benefits of a mini facelift for three to five years.

How Much Does a Mini Facelift Cost in Charlotte?

Your mini facelift is an incredible cosmetic procedure to feel better about your appearance, but it is not covered by medical insurance. To help you plan for the cost, we provide a total cost after your consultation. Payment is expected at the time of your surgery. We accept cash, check and major credit cards. Financing is available through CareCredit®.

If you have problems in the lower portion of your face due to aging, you may be a good candidate for a mini facelift, a less extensive technique than a full facelift. Renaissance Plastic Surgery offers mini facelifts performed by board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David F. Klein, for men and women in Charlotte, Salisbury, Harrisburg, Concord and surrounding areas of North Carolina. Contact us today to schedule your personal consultation.
