Mini Facelift in Manhattan, NYC
If you’re interested in taking years off your face but don’t want the longer recovery or downtime that a full facelift can bring, a mini facelift may be right for you. Performed by board-certified Manhattan plastic surgeon and general surgeon Richard W. Swift, Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S., you get all of the benefits of a more youthful face, with less recovery time – who wouldn’t want to know more?

What Is a Mini Facelift?
A mini facelift gives you many of the benefits of a traditional facelift. If you only have a few areas of concern on your face, such as wrinkles around your nose or mouth, and want to focus on tightening these areas to minimize wrinkles, a mini facelift may be the ideal procedure. It typically concentrates on the middle face, cheeks, and lower eyelids.

Benefits of a Mini Facelift
People who have had a mini facelift tell us that their skin looks and feels rejuvenated. In addition, they feel the following benefits:

  • Greater self-esteem and a more positive self-image.
  • More vibrant and vivacious – unafraid to smile!
  • Improved confidence and renewed vigor.

Keep in mind that each individual is different and that you’ll learn more about the outcome you can expect from your specific surgery or treatment at your consultation with Dr. Swift.

Preparing for a Mini Facelift
A mini facelift renews and repositions areas of the face only starting to show signs of aging. Typically, an incision is only half the size of a full facelift. Skin is separated from fat, muscle and fat will be trimmed and suctioned from around the face and chin, and muscles around the face will then be tightened.

It is important that you stay well hydrated before the surgery (to promote elasticity and volume in the face) and that you refrain from wearing any makeup, creams, or lotions on the day of your surgery.

Mini Facelift Recovery
Discomfort and healing time from a mini facelift is not as long as a more traditional, “full” facelift. You will be able to return to your normal activities in a few days, but it’s recommended you rest for the first week. Numbness is common and will subside within a few weeks. Stitches will be removed after a week.

Is a Mini Facelift Right for Me?
A mini facelift is ideal for candidates who want a shorter procedure than a full facelift, who are only starting to show signs of aging, or who have had a full facelift and only want a “touch-up” to the work they’ve already had done.

How Much Does a Mini Facelift Cost?
Costs for your mini facelift will vary depending on the extent of surgery or the number of treatments needed to achieve your desired result. Most insurance plans do not cover plastic surgery or specific cosmetic treatments. Dr. Swift accepts payment via cash, check, or credit card, as well as Prosper Healthcare Lending as a financing option.
