A mini facelift is a minor surgical procedure designed to make you look younger and slimmer by removing or reducing the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin, and heavy jowls. It differs from the traditional facelift as it is less invasive, uses shorter incisions, and focuses mostly on the lower part of the face.
Facial rejuvenation with a mini facelift
Unlike other facial rejuvenation procedures, a mini facelift offers shorter surgery and recovery times and produces less dramatic, natural-looking results. The changes are designed to be conservative yet noticeable. This procedure may be the right approach if you have mild to moderate skin aging concerns, or if you desire subtle results.
Is a mini facelift right for me?
A mini facelift is an ideal procedure for patients who desire a refreshed appearance without undergoing extensive surgery. It helps address signs of premature aging, as well as loose or sagging skin issues caused by rapid weight loss. It also improves the natural contours of the face by restoring definition to the chin and jawline. It will resolve the following signs of facial aging:
- Sagging or drooping cheeks
- Deep folds in the corners of the mouth
- Double chin

What is the mini facelift procedure?
A mini-facelift procedure, which is also known as an S-lift or a short incision facelift, is typically performed under local anesthesia, but this can vary depending on your health conditions and Dr. Sedgh’s recommendations.
The procedure starts with the creation of small incisions, which Dr. Sedgh will carefully place along the hairline above each ear, in the creases surrounding the ear, or both, depending on the target area. The facial tissue is altered or manipulated to create a tighter and firmer appearance. Once the adjustments satisfy the desired outcome, he will then restore the skin and close the incisions.

What is the recovery time from a mini facelift?
A mini facelift is most often performed as an outpatient procedure. Dr. Sedgh requires patients to arrange care for 48 hours after surgery. For non-local patients, the doctor’s team can help you arrange for a medically trained nurse or caregiver.
Unlike other facelift procedures, a mini facelift has a faster recovery period of one to two weeks. You may experience swelling, bruising, and mild pain or discomfort during the initial post-surgery period. You will have prescription pain medication to stay comfortable in the early stages of healing. The recovery time is rapid, and you can expect to return to your usual day-to-day activities a week after surgery.
Dr. Sedgh will personally follow your postoperative progress with multiple follow-up appointments over the next few weeks to months (starting on day one after surgery) to ensure your recovery is on track. He strongly believes in the importance of proper postoperative care in achieving the desired results, and you can expect individualized care, attention, and accessibility; a comforting and rewarding aspect of your journey under Dr. Sedgh’s care.

His approach to facial enhancement is to achieve a refreshed, natural look – with transparency, honesty, and the highest level of ethical treatment, from start to finish.
