A mini facelift in Orange County is a surgical procedure that reverses signs of facial aging. A departure from the more conventional forms of surgical facial lifting, the mini facelift requires only very minor incisions in select areas of the face. The tissues are then lifted to create a smoother and more youthful look.

Who Should Choose a Mini Facelift?
Anybody who is looking to address their aging issues and tighten their loose facial skin and sagging skin around the neck can opt for a mini facelift. The procedure is very safe, achieves the desired results, and requires a shorter recovery period than a full facelift.
The mini facelift procedure is ideal for people experiencing a lesser degree of facial aging and can also be undertaken by younger people with minor signs of premature aging.
Good candidates for this procedure are in good overall health, are non-smokers, and have realistic expectations. It is an excellent option for people who want to avoid a prolonged and uncomfortable healing process.
How Is a Mini Facelift Conducted?
The mini facelift procedure begins by first inspecting the sites where the incisions will be made. Dr. Daniel Reichner studies the patient’s profile and marks the sites where incision will be made. Usually, the areas around the ears and the hairline are common choices for incisions.
Anesthesia is administered in order to eliminate any chance of pain or discomfort during the procedure. While full facelifts typically require general anesthesia, mini facelifts can usually be performed using a combination of local anesthesia and sedation. Local anesthesia carries a lower chance of complications than general anesthesia.
Once incisions are made, the tissues are elevated to address sagging and wrinkles. After this is achieved, the excess skin is removed from the site. After excess skin is removed, the incisions are closed using sutures, further tightening the skin.
Mini Facelift Recovery
Once the procedure is complete, the patient can go back home after a few hours. The recovery period is very short and simple. Patients may need to return for follow-up appointments in order to ensure that healing has gone as expected.
On some occasions, there could be instances of bruising due to the incisions and stitching. The procedure may also create temporary swelling in the site. The swelling and bruising often go away after few weeks. In case of persistence of swelling, the patient should consult with Dr. Reichner.
When Do the Results Appear?
After a mini facelift, patients may notice some immediate visible changes. However, the final results will only be evident once all swelling and bruising has diminished, usually a few weeks from the date of surgery. The results of a mini facelift last for a long time, depending upon the lifestyle of the patient.
