Mini-Lifting, also known as Star Lift or Weekend Lift, is the mildest version of wrinkle surgery, which is performed under local anesthesia and intravenous sedation.
As the title of the operation suggests, the Mini-Lifting is a variation of the classic Face Lifting, smaller in size, with smaller incisions and with minimal recovery time.
An important condition for the success of the operation is to have the appropriate indication as well as the necessary pre-operative planning, in order to effectively deal with the sagging skin and facial ageing.
The main difference between the Mini-Lift and the Full Face Lift, is the treatment of the neck. In the Mini-Lift, due to the limited incisions, both the sagging in the lower part of the face and the upper part of the neck, are treated.
The technique is suitable for people with mild sagging in the Jawline and the cervicofacial angle, aged 45-55 years. In some cases, it can be performed at older ages when and if pre-existing anatomy allows or even more, in cases an old facelift needs to be renewed.
This operation can be combined with other cosmetic operations of the face, such as eyelid surgery, fat transfer, Nanofat grafting or Macrofat transplant, double chin liposuction, Mini Temporal lift, etc. always depending on specific needs.
The purpose of a facial surgery is to give a fresh natural look, without signs of a failed operation or a distorted image.
