Mini Facelift Surgery in Los Angeles
Countless doctors today are offering a variety of trendy facelift procedures, selling patients on the latest gimmicks regardless of each patient’s specific needs. We often see patients whose facial wrinkles are too deep to be effectively removed with injectable fillers, yet they do not wish to undergo a full facelift. As an alternative, Los Angeles facial plastic surgeons Dr. Jason Litner and Dr. Peyman Solieman may recommend a mini facelift, or their innovative Hybrid Facelift. A mini facelift is often used to correct targeted areas – hollow cheeks, fatty deposits in jowls, nasolobial folds and loose neck. It is done under local sedation to quicken recovery. Through the use of minor incisions strategically placed to decrease residual scarring, our duo team of board certified surgeons achieve substantial, yet natural looking results, which will last for years.

Mini Facelift vs. Full Facelift – What is The Difference?
Drs. Litner and Solieman typically recommend a mini facelift over the traditional surgery to patients who show relatively less signs of aging, have fewer wrinkles and loose facial skin, and who may otherwise be unwilling to undergo a full facelift due to concerns regarding anesthesia or downtime. While general anesthesia is administered during a facelift surgery, a mini facelift requires just local anesthesia with sedation and since the procedure is smaller, recovery time is usually shorter. During a mini facelift procedure, small incisions are made, through which facial muscles are tightened and the skin is redraped.
During your private consultation, the doctors will listen to you, examine your facial skin and muscle conditions, understand your expectations and help you choose a procedure that can best match your goals, using 3D modeling to visualize how you can look after surgery.

Candidates for Mini Facelift
Patients who choose a mini facelift are often younger than those who seek full facelift surgery, which means that signs of aging are less significant. The best candidates are those who suffer from skin and muscle looseness especially around the jowl line while the neck is relatively tight. In the Los Angeles area, mini facelifts are usually performed on patients in their late thirties to mid fifties. In some cases, patients who had previously undergone a primary facelift procedure and are hoping to touch up and extend the results, find that a mini facelift is a viable option.
Main Advantages of Mini Facelifts
In fact, a mini facelift can be a great solution for a variety of patients as the treatment offers distinct benefits. A mini facelift:
- Local anesthesia, minimally invasive, quicker recovery time
- Requires smaller incisions than a traditional facelift
- Leaves minimal signs of scarring
- Involves less bleeding and numbness during and after the procedure
- Less tissue damage, resulting in fewer potential risks
- Less costly than a full facelift. At the same time, you may need undergoing additional facial cosmetic procedures a few years later as upper areas of the face will further sag and you will feel a need to treat these areas as well.
Before & After Photos of Real Patients
The recovery time, though shorter than that of a traditional facelift, is equally important to final results. Patients should plan to take about one week off from work and their normal routine to recovery, and should refrain from strenuous physical activity for at least two weeks after surgery.
Mini Facelift Results
Results of your mini facelift are nearly immediate and can last up to 10 years. Drs. Litner and Solieman are always sure to stress to their patients that a mini facelift does not heed as dramatic results as does the Hybrid Facelift surgery. A mini facelift, nonetheless, will leave you feeling and looking more youthful and invigorated. As with all surgeries they perform, the doctors at PROFILES Beverly Hills are attentive to providing the most natural results for your mini facelift, so that don’t look overdone and so that signs of any work done are kept at an absolute minimum.
