If you are considering facelift surgery to look younger, but aren’t sure that you need a full facelift, you may want to consider a mini face lift. Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., is a board-certified plastic surgeon who offers mini facelifts to the residents of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and South Florida.
A mini facelift is a more limited surgical procedure when compared to a full facelift. Dr. Rubinstein recommends a mini facelift for men and women who need cosmetic improvements to the cheeks, nose and jawline. The surgery has a shorter recovery time and less significant post-surgical symptoms. A mini facelift is recommended for
- Lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth
- Lifting the cheeks
- Reducing a sagging jawline
For a mini facelift, Dr. Rubinstein uses local anesthesia and a sedative. Incisions are made along the crease of your ear. Dr. Rubinstein pulls the skin tight and excises the extra skin. He may also use liposuction to remove small pockets of fat that give you an older appearance. If you live in Miami, Fort Lauderdale or South Florida and are considering facelift surgery, contact us to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Rubinstein to discuss a mini facelift as a possible alternative.
