Countless doctors today are offering a variety of trendy Facelift procedures, selling patients on the latest gimmicks regardless of each patient’s specific needs. While keeping abreast of the latest trends, Drs. Litner and Solieman pride themselves on providing their patients with the optimal treatment for their unique situation, rather than pushing them toward the “In Fashion” procedure of the moment.
Drs. Litner and Solieman 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 proprietary Hybrid Facelift. When the doctors perform a Mini Facelift, they operate through the use of minor incisions strategically placed to decrease residual scarring, and they typically achieve substantial, yet natural looking results, which will last for years.
Drs. Litner and Solieman perform every procedure together, including their Mini Facelifts, at their accredited Los Angeles practice & surgical facility. When it comes to Facial Plastic surgery, minute decisions can change the surgical result from good to excellent. Over the years, our surgeons have learned to build off each other’s respective strengths, complimenting each other’s skills for the sole benefit of the patient. We believe it is in part because of their teamwork that Drs. Litner and Solieman are considered among the highest-rated Facial Plastic surgeons in the L.A. metro area, maintaining a very low revision rate.
Drs. Litner and Solieman will recommend a particular procedure only after considering your unique needs and desires They typically recommend a Mini Facelift over the Traditional Facelift 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 and/or downtime. While general anesthesia is administered during a Traditional Full Facelift surgery, a Mini Facelift requires just local anesthesia with sedation and since the procedure is smaller, recovery time is usually substantially reduced. During a Mini Facelift procedure, small incisions are made, through which facial muscles are tightened and the skin is redraped.
During your private consultation, Drs. Solieman and Litner 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 will look after surgery.
Patients who choose a Mini Facelift are often younger than those who seek the Traditional 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 remains relatively tight.
Mini facelifts are typically performed on patients in their late thirties to mid fifties. In some cases, patients who had previously undergone a primary Traditional Facelift procedure and are hoping to touch up and extend the results, find that a Mini Facelift is a good option.

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.
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.
