Mini Facelift on Long Island

Look as good as you feel with at Marotta Plastic Surgery Specialists

We all deserve to look as good as we feel, but Mother Nature often has other plans. As restorative as some creams and cleansers may be, certain creases and fine lines can’t be concealed with powder or foundation. Perhaps you’ve considered consulting a Long Island plastic surgeon about these signs of aging but weren’t sure if you were ready for a full facelift just yet. If so, Dr. Marotta’s incredible mini facelift technique may be the perfect solution for you.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dr. Marotta’s Mini Facelift?

Dr. Marotta’s mini facelift is an ideal solution for nearly anyone who would like to achieve substantial facial rejuvenation without significantly interrupting their everyday life.

Some patients may choose to undergo a mini facelift in combination with other minimally invasive procedures for enhanced results. Many women in New York experience signs of aging that don’t yet merit a full facelift. Dr. Marotta’s mini facelift technique has been uniquely developed to help with this frustrating issue.

What to Expect During Your Mini Facelift

Dr. Marotta’s mini facelift on Long Island typically takes about two hours and is performed under local anesthesia in our Long Island plastic surgery clinic.

Your Long Island plastic surgeon can also give you a mild sedative to help you feel completely at ease during your treatment. Recovery time typically spans from seven to ten days. You should feel minimal pain during this stage. Immediately after your facial plastic surgery at our New York facility, your face will be bandaged to facilitate a speedy recovery, but these will be removed during your first post-op visit with Dr. Marotta. Your Long Island plastic surgeon may instruct you to limit your activity during this time and keep your head elevated when you sleep.

What Are the Benefits of Dr. Marotta’s Mini Facelift Procedure?

Address the common signs of aging with a mini facelift. Now, you no longer have to wait for things to go from bad to worse. This mini facelift can help address the following physical changes that occur as we age:

  • Deep creases that run around the mouth to the chin, often called “marionette lines”
  • The formation of jowls beneath the chin
  • Loose skin along the neck

By addressing these common indicators of aging in the lower face, you can emphasize the features in the upper portion of the face, effectively restoring your youthful proportions and creating an overall lifted appearance. Unlike a traditional facelift that requires general anesthesia and a lengthy recovery time, your mini facelift can be performed with local anesthesia and 7 - 10 days of recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best age for a mini facelift?

A mini facelift is an ideal treatment option for patients who show moderate signs of aging in their lower face. While there is no hard and fast rule concerning what age is best, many mini facelift patients are in their late 30s to early 50s. In addition, patients should have relatively good skin elasticity to create a natural-looking appearance.

What can I expect during my recovery?

You will need to have a close friend or family member drive you home after your procedure. You will need to rest at home for the remainder of the day, though you may be up and moving around the following day. You will need to limit your activity until Dr. Marotta clears you for physical activity. You may experience some bruising and swelling during the first few days after your procedure. You will be able to alleviate any discomfort with pain medication and ice.

How do I know if I should get a mini facelift or a full facelift?

The mini facelift specifically targets signs of aging in the lower face and does not involve the deep restorative measures of a full facelift. Patients with significant signs of aging throughout the face, severe skin laxity, or more advanced subdermal tissue laxity may benefit from a full facelift. During your consultation, Dr. Marotta will examine your skin to determine which treatment or treatments will offer you the best results while also considering your preferences regarding anesthesia and recovery.
