When it comes to ais awash with clinics and professionals who can get you fixed up in no time at all and it is very quickly becoming a must-try procedure in the city. Here in DC style and appearance is everything, whether you are working on the hill, working in the press or simply trying to fit into the culture, everything is about appearance. This is a relatively new procedure but its popularity is high right now and today we are going to talk a little about what exactly this procedure is, and what to expect from a mini facelift.
In a Nutshell
To be honest a mini facelift is pretty much self explanatory in that it is a miniature version of a full blown face lift. The idea of a face lift is to young younger and fresher and the mini lift will do exactly that, through a minimally invasive surgical technique. The result of this procedure is that patients will look younger and that their face will look much healthier than before.
How it is Done
This procedure involves very small incisions which are made along the jaw bone in order to remove excess or sagging skin from the face which occurs through the aging process. The incisions are made in the natural folds of the face so there is absolutely no evidence left afterwards that they have been made. The procedure takes just an hour and half, which is also a reason why it has become so popular, and we often see the procedure combined with a fat transfer. The fat transfer will look to take fat from other areas of the body via liposuction, and then it s transferred to areas like the cheeks, brown and chin to give a fuller, more youthful look.
Who Gets It
There are a number people who look to have this procedure but in the main they are above the age of 40, they are those people who are beginning to show signs of age that they would like to have changed, without going in for a full face lift. A full lift will involve larger incisions, more skin removed and much more invasive techniques to get the look that the patient is after. The mini lift on the other hand is the perfect solution to anyone in their 40s and 50s to reverse the signs of aging and look fresher and more youthful.
The recovery time for the mini lift is just a couple of days and in many cases people will be back at work the next day, with some slight swelling. This is not a pain free procedure but it can be easily managed with pain relief in the days after the procedure and during it will be managed with local anesthetic.
Washington DC is going crazy for this procedure, and I have no doubt it is the same in cities across the country.
