When it comes to combating fine lines and wrinkles it can seem like you have two solutions: you can either go all in and get a surgical facelift, or you can do something temporary like getting facial fillers and Botox. However, Dr. Gary J. Price offers patients another option: a mini facelift or a celebrity facelift. So, what is this treatment and what are its benefits? Let’s take a closer look.
What’s a Mini Facelift?
Mini facelifts have gained popularity among our patients because they give them a more youthful complexion without the recovery time and process. During this surgical procedure, Dr. Gary J. Price will use a local anesthetic to numb the face. Once the face is numb, he will make a small incision at the hairline to help lift the skin into a more youthful position.
What Are Its Benefits?
There are several unique benefits of a mini facelift including that you won’t have to go under general anesthesia. Even though general anesthesia is effective in most surgical procedures, it can make a recovery longer and can even make some patients feel ill, but with a mini facelift, we get rid of the need for general anesthesia. Another unique benefit of this procedure is that there are no bandages necessary. With traditional facelifts, patients are typically sent home with their whole face bandaged up, but with this surgery, you won’t have to worry about resembling a mummy anytime soon.
