The Mini Lift can refresh your face
The mini lift is a minimally invasive 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 more youthful. 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 improves the contours and firmness of your face.
Advantages of the Mini Lift
- Safety: Dr Szalay uses sutures that have been used safely for many years as a suture in all forms of surgery, including facial surgery.
- Appearance: Dr Szalay hides the incisions behind your ear or in your scalp so no visible scars will occur on your face. The exception is if you require skin removal (see below)
- Simplicity: The Mini Lift is a simple procedure to perform.
- Recovery: Patients can usually return to work after 10 days.
How much does The Mini Lift cost?
The initial consultation with Dr Szalay is $75.00. The cost of the standard procedure is as follows:
- Cheek lift (mid face): $3850
- Jawline and jowls: $3850
- Temple lift ( “fox eye procedure”)
- Any two of the above $5500
Mini Lift with skin removal
Some patients have excessive loose skin. So Dr Szalay will also need to remove skin. He uses a fine incision along your ear and sometimes into your hair. Dr Szalay places this incision carefully so as to be as imperceptible as possible.
Because of the skin removal this procedure requires a 14 day recovery period.
How much does The Mini Lift with skin removal cost?
- Lower Face: $7700
Please note that if you have excessive looseness of the jowls, jawline or neck you are likely to require tightening of the deep smas layer which is performed with the Minimally Invasive Facelift or Minimally Invasive Necklift . Dr Szalay will assess this during your consultation.
