About a mini-facelift
As years go by the skin of your face looses its firmness and the volume of the face will shrink. This will cause sagging of the skin and the underlying fat tissue.
This will affect the jaw line, neckline (double chin) and the vertical folds from your mouth towards the jaws.
The loss of volume mainly affects the cheeks, cheekbones and lower eyelids.
A Mini-lift, also called an S-lift, has an especially rejuvenating effect on the cheeks and on the so-called hamster cheeks at the jawline.
Scarring will be reduced to the minimum in order to reduce the recovery period.
Initially a macs lift, minilift and S lift, referred to three different kind of procedures, where nowadays these terms are mixed up. They all refer to a facelift where the minimum of skin is loosened.
Mini facelift technique
The plastic surgeon will locate the incisions along the hairline and just in front of the ear.
Through these incisions our plastic surgeron will lift the muscles, remove unwanted fat deposits and eliminate excess skin.
A mini lifting will be helpfull for people who are showing the first signs of aging.
This procedure can be performed under both local or general anesthetic.

Mini facelift: post treatment
After the mini lifting a special bandage will be put on, in order to limit post operative swelling. In some cases two small drains will be placed, for the removal of extra blood or fluid. These drains can be removed 24 hours after the operation.
Patients often experience swelling, bruising and discomfort for the first couple of days. These symptoms can be controlled with pain medication, which will be provided at Clinic BeauCare.
Patients are advised to take two weeks off from work, in order to focus on recovery and avoid strenuous activities.
However, patients should avoid being overly sedentary, taking a walk every few hours will stimulate blood flow and prevent blood clots.
When you’ve had a minilift you should keep away from bath, sauna, pool and hottub for six weeks after the surgery.
In early stages of recovery scars may be visible, but will fade in time after some recovery. Once scars are fully closed you may start apllying a hydrating cream, to be gently massaged into the scars.
Yes its a pain to travel but 2 hours is nothing compared to the saving & i believe his work is better than most I have seen from top surgeons praised in this country !
Only downside is the stitch removal best is to ask your GP or a local nurse, I'm so pleased !!
Mini facelift: risks
Mini facelifts are like any other surgery not without risks. It is very important to be aware of these risks in order to weigh up advantages and disadvantages of a mini face lift.
The plastic surgeon at Clinic BeauCare will inform you well on the risks of a mini facelift:
- Bleeding under the skin can cause discomfort, swelling as well as bruising. In such case you should contact your surgeon for follow-up.
- Infection: All surgeries give risk of infection. However, when surgery is performed by a reputaded surgeon and in best conditions, the chance of infection is very low. An infection should be treated by antibiotics.
- Nerve damage: In rare cases a nerve may be cut, which will end up in a loss of sensitivity, the damage is not always permanent.
- Slow healing process: Healing may take sometimes longer for some patients than other. This will affect some parts of the face, which will heal slower than other parts.You should realize that SMOKERS HAVE MORE CHANCE ON WOUND HEALING PROBLEMS, because blood vessels will be narrowed by smoking.
