Mini Face Lift

A mini-facelift is a surgical procedure that combats and corrects sagging jawline, cheek, and neck skin, as well as signs of aging around the eyes and mouth. The mini-facelift is a variation of the traditional facelift that provides results with less postoperative bruising and swelling, a lesser recovery period, and fewer side effects overall, while still providing a more lifted, youthful appearance to the lower face.
As one of the leading facelift surgeons on Delmarva, Dr. Pellegrino will evaluate the signs of aging that you are most concerned about and restore a renewed, refreshed appearance to your face.

An overview of a mini facelift

At your mini facelift consultation, Dr. Pellegrino will provide a personal evaluation based on your individual signs of aging as well as your desired result, and craft a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your goals.

Mini Facelift surgery is often combined with other treatments like dermal fillers and fat grafting to achieve optimal results. Your personalized treatment plan will be tailored during your consultation with Dr. Pellegrino to help you reach your desired, refreshed appearance.

What concerns can a mini facelift correct?

A mini facelift performed by an experienced surgeon like Dr. Pellegrino will successfully alleviate:
  • Sagging skin and wrinkles on the lower face and jawline
  • Loose or "turkey" neck with vertical bands
  • Jowls along the jaw and drooping cheek fat
  • Fallen or tired appearance to the cheeks and midface

What to expect during recovery

A mini facelift requires significantly less recovery time than a traditional facelift. You will likely experience side effects such as mild discomfort and swelling, which typically subside within a week. During your recovery period, you will be advised to avoid strenuous exercise or physical activity, rest, and sleep with your head elevated to minimize swelling and promote optimal healing. Dr. Pellegrino and his staff will offer a custom treatment plan and guidance for your individual recovery period throughout your post-operative follow-up appointments.

Is a mini facelift right for you?

If you are interested in a mini facelift, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Pellegrino to determine the best course of action to achieve your desired result. Generally, most men and women are candidates for a mini facelift if signs of facial aging or sagging skin in the lower face are causing them to be dissatisfied with their appearance. Additionally, candidates for this procedure should be healthy overall. It is important to have a realistic expectation of what a mini facelift can accomplish. When performed by an expert plastic surgeon like Dr. Pellegrino, a mini facelift will not drastically alter your facial appearance. Your result will be a naturally refreshed and youthful look that still looks like you.
