What is Mini facelift?

Mini facelift or a partial facelift cosmetic surgery is a popular procedure sought by both women and men who need limited corrections in the lower face or a maintenance procedure to delay the facial signs of aging. The procedure is designed to reduce loose skin and wrinkles in the lower third of the face. It involves small incisions around the ears, which result in minimal, inconspicuous scarring.

Mini facelift

There are several techniques to reposition and fix the descended cheek. If you view your face in three-quarter position in a mirror you will see what I mean. Look at the cheekbone and note the sagging skin and fat below it. Then, from the front view, lift the cheek so that the jowl moves into the face and the cheek moves up toward to cheekbone. You will see the effect very clearly of moving fat only. Then we re-drape the skin to mimic the underlying youthful contour. Volume in the right places is the essence of this procedure, not pulling. The horizontal fullness created is nothing short of beautiful. It refocuses our attention to the soul of the face, the eyes, and balances any other vertical lines (the lines of aging) that might be elsewhere, such as the nasolabial folds. A full cheek, a pumped cheekbone, and a clean jaw line, that is what an exceptional cheek-lift will accomplish and restore a natural more youthful you.

    I suffered deep thermal burns to my face caused by the incompetence of a Dermatologist for 1 year with no relief, until I met Dr. Soika. She administered a treatment to give me the relief I was looking for. She was the only Dr.who took the time to listen, diagnose and performed a procedure with great results! Because of her, I am on the road to recovery!

    My sons wedding was coming and I wanted to look and feel my best, I called Dr. Soika because I saw her local Ad. It was the best call I made! My skin looks 7 years younger-tighter, and I look for rested and awake. I didn’t believe it was possible without surgery, but Dr. Soika did an incredible procedure in 1 1/2 hours with no down time.
