Does a Mini Facelift Leave Visible Scars?

facelift houstonEvery year, Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig of Fusi & Craig Plastic Surgery, see several Houston men and women in their 30’s and 40’s who would like to have some facial work performed. Showing some signs of aging, including sagging facial skin and jowls around the neck, these patients aren’t quite qualified for a full facelift. However, a mini facelift – a lighter and less invasive facial rejuvenation procedure – is often the right solution for them. But, will this mini procedure leave visible facial scars, telling the world you’ve had work done?

Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig Do Everything Possible to Hide Mini Facelift Scars

The good news is, when you work with the exceptionally qualified plastic surgeons, Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig, they do everything possible to hide your mini facelift scars, so you won’t have telltale signs of the work you’ve had done. If you come to Houston’s Fusi & Craig Plastic Surgery for a mini facelift, your procedure may include:

  • Pulling and tightening your mid-facial skin;
  • Reducing sagging in your mid-facial area;
  • Minimizing fine lines and wrinkles;
  • Repositioning fatty deposits in your face; and
  • Eliminating jowls around the bottom face and chin.

To perform these procedures, Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig strategically make incisions in your hairline, thus hiding the scars that would otherwise let people know your youthful look isn’t 100% natural.

The Benefits of Getting a Mini Facelift Now

For Houston men and women in their 30’s and 40’s, it can be quite disheartening to be showing signs of aging that make them feel as though they look older than they really are – or feel on the inside. But is it worth it to get a mini facelift? For the hundreds of patients that Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig have helped, the answer is emphatical, “Yes!”

While a mini facelift won’t necessarily prevent future aging or eliminate your need for a full facelift in the future, it is a facial rejuvenation process that can make you look and feel great now. It’s also a procedure that can boost your self-confidence, give you a more youthful looking appearance, and postpone your need for a full facelift for several years to come.

Determining if You Are a Mini Facelift Candidate

If you’re in your 30’s or 40’s and would like to undergo a facial rejuvenation procedure, it can be hard for you to know whether or not you need a full or mini facelift. After all, Houston residents age differently. The best way to determine whether or not you are a candidate for a mini facelift versus a full facelift is to visit Fusi & Craig Plastic Surgery for a consultation. During this initial appointment, Dr. Fusi or Dr. Craig will evaluate your face, listen to your concerns about your problem areas, and determine the best course of treatment.

Houston men and women are typically a good candidate for a mini facelift if:

  • They are showing early signs of aging, including light jowls and sagging or sunken facial skin;
  • They are in their 30’s or 40’s;
  • They are in good overall health;
  • They have realistic expectations for their procedure;
  • They are in good overall psychological health; and
  • They are non-smokers, as smoking can interfere both with the plastic surgery procedure itself and the mini facelift recovery period.
