Over time, your body begins to produce less collagen. This can lead to loose skin, especially in the lower third of your face and around your jawline and jowls. This looseness can also happen after you lose significant weight and your skin does not rebound as you had hoped. A limited facelift procedure known as a mini facelift can address these areas of concern and restore your firm, youthful skin.
At Murthy Facial Plastic Surgery, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Namita Murthy, specializes in complex facial procedures. She and her team can help you achieve natural, flattering results. Let us help you look as young as you feel. Call to schedule a consultation for a mini facelift in Annapolis, MD.
A mini facelift typically addresses skin laxity in the middle to lower part of the face, as well as banding on the side of the neck and loose skin on the upper neck and jawline. The procedure is also called a limited incision or short scar facelift.
A mini facelift in Annapolis is a less invasive procedure than a traditional or full facelift, which treats a broader area of the face, neck, and underlying tissues. It is an excellent option for all men and women of who want to address the early signs of aging without needing a drastic transformation. It is also a wonderful choice for those who may need a more extensive procedure but do not have the time or desire to undergo full facelift surgery.
A mini facelift produces less scarring and has a faster recovery period than a regular facelift. It also does not require the use of general anesthesia. A mini facelift cannot address concerns someone may have about features on the upper part of their face, including eye bags, crow’s feet, or deep forehead wrinkles. However, a mini facelift can be combined with other surgical or non-invasive procedures such as eye lifts, brow lifts, and cosmetic injectables.
During a mini facelift in Annapolis, Dr. Murthy makes small incisions around your hairline and ears. She then addresses any looseness in the underlying structures, before pulling the skin taut and removing any excess tissue. The procedure typically takes two hours or less to complete.
After surgery, Dr. Murthy gives you detailed instructions about how to care for your face during recovery. Following these guidelines closely will help ensure a smooth recovery. You can expect some bruising and swelling in your face, especially around the incision lines. Plan to rest for at least a week; avoid bending down or doing any exercise other than light walking until Dr. Murthy clears you to do so. You should also avoid alcohol, smoking, saunas, and steam baths during this time. Most people can return to work in one to two weeks.
As a concierge plastic surgery center, we provide services that most other clinics do not. This includes a car service to and from the surgical center for day patients as well as overnight care. For quick responses throughout the entire process to any questions or concerns you may have, we also offer a direct line of communication with Dr. Murthy through our messaging system.
