Mini Facelift in Phoenix, AZ

A mini facelift procedure is the most common type of facelift surgery performed today. It is intended to smooth wrinkles and sagging skin on the lower third of the face and provide more definition to the chin line. A mini facelift accomplishes these goals by removing excess tissue and tightening remaining tissue. Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, led by board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh, offers mini facelifts for men and women who live in and around Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and the surrounding communities of Arizona.

What is a Mini Facelift?

Mini facelift refers to a procedure that’s similar to a facelift, but with limited incision points. Variations of this surgery may include or overlap with such procedures as a neck lift, mini lift, S-lift, submentoplasty, cheek tuck-up facelift and others. Mini facelifts offer targeted treatment to areas patients would like to correct, including extra facial skin, premature jowling or neck relaxation.

How Much Does a Mini Facelift Cost in Phoenix?

Most insurance companies consider plastic surgery to be an elective procedure and do not offer coverage for these procedures; a mini facelift treatment is usually excluded from policies. In order to make facelift procedures and other plastic surgeries financially accessible and affordable, Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, accepts cash, checks and credit cards. In addition, financing is offered through CareCredit®. If you have any questions about the mini facelift procedure, recovery, costs or financing options at Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, please give us a call.

Am I a Candidate For a Mini Facelift?

A mini facelift is an option for younger patients who are mostly satisfied with their overall appearance but have one small problem area they’d like to address. A mini facelift is ideal for patients that would like to improve their look but are too young to undergo a full facelift. In addition, a mini facelift might be a consideration for someone who has had a previous facelift but would like a touch up to tighten skin. 

Benefits of a Mini Facelift

The primary benefits of mini facelifts are that there are fewer incisions and less recovery as compared to a full facelift. Plus, the incisions involved with a mini facelift often can be camouflaged or hidden more effectively. As a result, patients can expect less bruising and swelling.

Mini Facelift Recovery

The duration of your recovery depends upon your unique circumstances, including your anatomy, genetic response to surgery and how well you maintain your health after the procedure. Most patients report feeling minor discomfort the same day of the surgery and can return to work and normal daily activities within the first seven days. The absorbable sutures must be removed or trimmed after one week, and patients typically feel comfortable returning to social activities shortly afterward.

After a proper recovery period, most patients experience mini facelift benefits for five to 10 years, with some being able to appreciate results for life.

Is a Mini Facelift Right For You?

The first step to deciding if you are a candidate for a mini facelift procedure is to meet with Dr. Taghizadeh for a consultation. He will listen to your areas of concern and conduct a full evaluation of your anatomy before discussing your options. He will also review with you the details of a mini facelift surgery, post-surgery care and what you can expect short and long term.

For the right candidates, mini facelifts offer facial rejuvenation with less risk, reduced recovery, and smaller incisions. If you’re considering a mini facelift or other cosmetic surgery, we encourage you to call our office for more information or to set up a consultation.
