THE BEST WAY TO LOOK NATURALLY YOUNGER
A popular procedure for young patients
As our skin becomes less elastic with age and effects of sun exposure, we may develop loose and unsightly skin folds and wrinkles around the chin, jaw line and neck.
The Mini Facelift doesn’t just correct the skin, but also the muscles, the subcutaneous fat and the connective tissue of the face and the jaw line!
- MINILIFTING PROCEDURE
Trough an incision in the hairline and in the natural fold of the skin in front of the ear, the surgeon tightens the skin, corrects the subcutaneous tissues and elevates the weakened muscles.
The surgeon uses a number of loops, which support of the subcutaneous tissues during the healing period. These loops are dissolvable and disappear as soon as they are no longer required. This prevents late rejection of the stitches. The correction of the subcutaneous tissue and muscles lifts your skin in a natural way.
- NATURAL RESULT
Modern Mini Facelift has a natural, rejuvenating result because the traction on the facial tissues runs in a vertical way, contrary to the horizontal traction of some old techniques of Mini Facelift, which give a loss of depth in the face.
The tension on the skin and the subcutaneous tissues runs in an upward and not in a sideward direction. Thus a “too tightened” appearance is avoided and a natural rejuvenation is achieved.
- INCISIONS AND SCARS FROM A MINI FACELIFT
Most scars from a Mini Facelift are hard to see once they heal. According to Dr. Husami, the latest technique places the scar inside the ear not in front of it like it used to be years ago. Thanks to this new method, scars will not show and the patient is ready to go out without having to hide anything. There is another incision beneath your chin. Your scars can be camouflaged with make-up within three weeks and should fade beyond detection in one to three months.
The treatment is possible under local anesthesia or, under intravenous sedation.
After one week the stitches are removed. From this moment you can, with some make-up, resume your social activities. During two weeks after the surgery the face will be a bit blue and swollen. The vitamins, which are prescribed before the operation, help to speed up recovery.
Temporary discomfort, bruising, and numbness, but usually pain is minimal.
