How much younger will I be after a mini facelift? Most people look 5 to 10 years younger after a mini facelift, and the journal “Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery” published two recent studies that evaluated the outcomes of patients who had undergone a facelift. These patients were asked: “How much younger did your facelift make you look?” The response given by patients in both studies was about 12 years. In one study, 83% of patients reported an improvement in their self-esteem and 70% reported an improvement in their quality of life. It should be noted that other procedures were performed at the same time as the facelift, such as eyelid surgery and forehead lifts, laser skin rejuvenation and fat injection.
However, after the recovery period, the benefits can be downright surprising. You can literally look a decade younger than before the mini facelift, with useful definition restored to your chin, jaw, and lower facial area, and previously sagging, firmed skin. You'll simply see a much better version of you in the mirror every morning. The results you get from a mini facelift compared to a full facelift only vary when it comes to longevity.
Because both procedures alter facial tissue and skin, both offer long-term results. In most cases, a mini facelift will easily last around ten years before another lift is needed. A full facelift can last about twice as long at twenty years old. Many patients find that the results last even longer, with a few years longer for both the mini facelift and the full facelift.
By analyzing your expectations and what you hope to get from surgery, your doctor can help you determine if it's better to perform a full or partial facelift. Usually, the results of cosmetic surgery can last 7 to 10 years, but if necessary, this deadline can be extended. People who had a facelift and neck lift looked an average of 5.7 years younger after surgery. Thanks to eyelid surgery, they were reduced by almost two more years and, in addition, a forehead lift was needed for about another year.
The people who underwent all four procedures were said to look 8.4 years younger in their subsequent photograph. Conveniently located to serve the Fenton, Sterling, Livonia and San Diego areas CA Dr. Eric Seiger pioneered the incredible HourLift mini-facelift procedures in Michigan more than 20 years ago and has performed more than 6,000 lifts. People from all over the country (and even from some foreign countries) travel to have this procedure done at our Michigan offices.
HourLift procedures are specifically designed to meet your wants and needs. Before all of our HourLift mini facelift procedures, you'll talk to a member of our knowledgeable and professional staff. During the consultation, we will guide you to perform the correct procedures just for you. The HourLift procedure lasts between one and a half hours, during which an incision is made in front of the ear up to the front line of the hair.
The surgeon will then tighten the muscle with a special suture that will keep the patient's skin firm for 5 to 10 years. The surgeon will lift the muscle under the skin, tighten it, and remove any excess skin for a more youthful appearance and wrinkle-free. Traditional sutures are used to close the skin. After the mini-facelift procedure, patients will wear an ice-cold headwear for approximately 24 to 48 hours.
The patient will usually be able to shampoo their hair and apply makeup the day after the procedure. The sutures will be removed within six to eight days. A small percentage of patients may experience some bruising and minimal pain that can be relieved with oral medications. Our most popular procedure is just for you if you want a neck lift for an overall more youthful appearance.
The HourLift PLUS combines the HourLift and a neck lift. A neck lift is an additional procedure performed at the same time to treat problem areas around the chin and neck and to treat loose and loose skin. The addition of the One HourLift with a neck lift creates a rejuvenated appearance for the entire face and neck area. A neck lift is also an in-office procedure that uses local anaesthesia and can produce surprising results.
For those candidates looking for a complete renewal, the “Ultimate” includes the HourLift, the neck lift, and adds a unique and specialized technique to restore volume to your face using natural fillers. When you restore volume to your face, you are “re-inflating” your face to give it a more natural shape and youthful look. The results can be very dramatic, bringing enormous joy and satisfaction to our patients who choose this option. The HourLift facelift, often referred to as a “mini facelift” or “lunchtime facelift” is one of the most common types of facelifts performed today.
The HourLift facelift is capable of eliminating sagging skin and wrinkles that make many patients feel unsure of themselves; restoring definition with just a few small incisions made around the ears while gently lifting up skin; refreshing appearance; providing significant improvements; giving natural look; beginning with administration of mild sedative; numbing face with local anaesthetic; making small incisions in front of both ears; lifting tissue below surface of skin; removing excess skin; closing skin with traditional sutures; wearing ice-cold headwear for 24-48 hours; shampooing hair; applying makeup day after procedure; removing sutures within 6-8 days; relieving any pain with oral medications.
