What is a Mini-Lift?

The concept of less invasive facelift, often referred to as mini-lifts, has become increasingly important in recent years. You may be considering facial rejuvenation procedures at an earlier age, not wanting to wait until the aging process is too apparent. Luckily, double board certified oculofacial plastic surgeon Dr. Brackup performs a mini-lift with less invasive techniques to address less advanced aging changes. If you are a candidate, the results can be as dramatic as more extensive procedures with significantly less downtime. The same procedures are frequently coupled with BOTOX® or hyaluronic acid fillers, to create the desired effect without a “surgical look.” Our ultimate goal is to make our patients happy, and we will always recommend the best procedure that will give you your desired results. We will review all your options during a consultation.

How is a Mini-Lift Performed?

Some mini-lifts may be performed in our in-office surgical suite, while others will require monitored sedation in our accredited surgery facility. General anesthesia is not required. When undergoing a mini-facelift, a thin, small incision is made near the ears to lift the skin to a higher position. This significantly decreases the laxity of the skin around the mouth, jawline, and jowls. Our patients find that a mini-lift creates subtle improvements in the bottom half of their face that look both beautiful and natural. Additionally, recovery from a mini-facelift is easier than that of a traditional facelift due to its smaller incisions and less “structural work”.

What is an S-Lift?

The S-Lift, as performed by Dr. Brackup, has been a major advancement for patients seeking facial enhancement at an earlier age. Essentially, the cheeks, jowls, and jawline can be lifted and repositioned with the same efficacy as a traditional facelift with a much smaller incision. The S-Lift gets its name from the fact that it is accomplished through an S-shaped incision around the ears. Just as in a facelift, the underlying facial muscles are tightened to achieve a long-lasting effect, as the cheeks and jowls are lifted and excess skin removed. We are now able to convert many patients who otherwise would require a SMAS or full facelift to the S-Lift procedure.
