A mini face and neck lift is a procedure that corrects sagging in the mid-lower portion of the face. It can help to give you a more youthful and fresh appearance. It can be done as a stand alone procedure or in combination with a range of other procedures such as double chin treatments, PRP, fillers or anti-wrinkle injections.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE & WHAT IS INVOLVED?
If you feel that you have excess skin in the lower portion of your face and or your neck you may be a candidate for a mini face and neck lift.
Dr Ali Hussain removes excess skin and fat from the lower portion of the face using a small incision to tighten the skin.
What anaesthetic is used and what hospital stay is required?
This procedure is most commonly performed under a local anaesthetic, but can be carried out under general anaesthesia at your request. This procedure is performed in a day surgery setting, using a rapid recovery technique. You will be able to return to the comfort of your own home soon after completion of the surgery.
Will this procedure leave scars?
Dr Ali Hussain undergoes regular training on the most current surgical methods and will choose the incision option that will minimise scarring. Mini face and neck lift incisions work well with the natural contours of the ear and hairline and should be become barely noticeable in a short time.
What is the recovery period?
The recovery period for this procedure will vary from patient to patient and you could return to work within 3-5 days in some situations You will be required to wear a post-operative garment for 2 weeks at all times. Light exercise may be resumed within 4-5 weeks but strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least 6-8 weeks. You will be given post-surgery instructions to follow and if you have any questions, please speak to Dr Ali Hussain or his clinic staff.
