What Is Recovery Like After Mini-Facelift Surgery?

Featured Image

 When considering a facelift procedure, the choice between a mini-facelift and a full facelift is a personal decision that can greatly influence your surgical experience. Dr. Saba Motakef, a board-certified plastic surgeon at Motakef Plastic Surgery + Med Spa in Anaheim Hills, CA, conducts both procedures with a high degree of skill. A mini-facelift addresses signs of aging like sagging skin, jowls, and loss of facial and jawline definition. In contrast, a full facelift impacts the entire face. The less invasive nature of a mini-facelift, involving smaller incisions and focusing on a specific area, results in a shorter surgical time and a generally quicker recovery period. 

What does mini-facelift recovery involve? 

The recovery process for a mini-facelift tends to be smoother and faster than a full facelift due to the less invasive nature of the procedure. Following surgery, patients may experience discomfort, swelling, and bruising, which typically begin to subside after a few days. Most patients are able to resume nonstrenuous daily activities within a week and return to their routine after two weeks. It is crucial to adhere to all aftercare instructions provided by your surgeon to promote optimal healing and achieve the best possible results.
