Facelift: Mini-lift - Minilift. Info, Before & After Photos and Prices!
- The Mini-lift is a popular treatment at the Wellness Kliniek.
- Most ladies and gentlemen who undergo this procedure are between 40 and 55 years of age.
Facelift : Mini-lift
A simple procedure which gives great results:
- short procedure: lasting 1-2 hours
- Day treatment
- Low price
- Natural effect
- Quick recovery, short scar
A Mini-lift, also called an S-lift, Quick Minilift or weekend facelift, has an especially rejuvenating effect on the cheeks and on the so-called hamster cheeks/jowls at the jawline. The recovery period for this procedure is fast, there is minimal swelling and very few side-effects.
The word 'mini' in mini-lift stands for the 'mini scar' and the 'mini recovery period' this type of facelift involves. The procedure can be performed under a local anaesthetic or intravenous sedation. After having a mini-lift performed you sleep off the anaesthetic in the kliniek. You return home the same evening, and can resume your daily activities one week later.
A mini-lift gives life-long results. The mini-lift doesn't stop the aging process: but you will look ten years younger than you would without the treatment.
Advantages of a Mini-lift
A mini-lift is the treatment for anyone who does not want to have a MACS facelift, a WELLNESS lift or complete SMAS Face and Neck lift, but just doesn't want to wait until more work needs to be done.
Mini-lifting treats the central tissue collapse in cheeks and jowls, often one of the first and most embarassing signs of facial aging.
Marionet folds - wrinkles around the corners of the mouth - can sometimes be improved with injectables. Aesthetic dental treatment can be necessary to compensate for bone-loss in the lower jaw.
The effect of a Mini-lift really depends on the strength of the facial tissues. If the tissue - skin, muscles, fat, connective tissue - is very slack, then a more extensive face and neck lift is necessary to achieve the most beautiful results, under intravenous sedation .
Advantages of the Mini-lift, Quick Minilift, S-Lift, Weekend facelift are:
- Excellent price: simple procedure
- Short procedure: lasting 1-2 hours
- The procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis
- Local anaesthetic
- Natural-looking results
- Quick recovery period: 7 to 14 days
- Small scar: in the crease in front of the ear
- Safe, with very few complications.
Modern facelift techniques
Modern facelifts result in a totally natural-looking, rejuvenating effect because the traction on the facial tissue runs vertically, in contrast to the horizontal traction of some of the older facelift techniques, which make the face appear flattened.
The tension on the skin and the subcutaneous tissue is applied upwards and not sideways. This prevents the face looking like it has been 'pulled too tightly' and the results of the procedure are totally natural.
Mini-lift: your appointment for a consultation
During the initial consultation all aspects of the treament will be discussed: which facelift method will give you the best results, the possible risks and aftercare. The surgeon will also ask you some questions about your medical background, your wishes and expectations. The doctor will then determine whether the procedure will meet your expectations.
To make a appointment for a consultation it is best to contact us by phone.
