The Mini Lift can lift areas of your face
The mini lift is an innovative method of facial rejuvenation. It uses multiple fine sutures to lift and support sagging skin on your face. So it can make your face firmer and uplifted. It can also reshape your eyebrows.
How does it work?
Dr Szalay loops the sutures by way of small hollow needles to your sagging skin and subcutaneous tissue. In order to strengthen the result, he anchors the other ends of the sutures to firm tissue behind your ear or in your scalp. This lifts and holds your skin and subcutaneous tissue in an uplifted position. So, the sutures lift and support drooping cheeks and jowls. This can improve the firmness of your face.
Features of the Mini Lift
Dr Szalay uses multiple sutures that help support each other. He hides the incisions behind your ear or in your scalp so no visible scars will occur on your face.
How long is the recovery period for the Mini Lift?
Following the procedure we may fit you with a bandage or head garment which you wear for 1 to 4 days. It is important for you to have someone to pick you up following the surgery and they will need to stay with you that night.
Some pain will occur so we give you a script for pain medication.
Swelling and bruising can occur following the procedure, so most patients feel comfortable facing the general public again after 10 days.
Dr Szalay will discuss what to expect during your recovery as part of your consultation and we will provide you with detailed pre and post operative instructions.
