A mini facelift, also called an S-lift or weekend facelift, has a rejuvenating effect on the cheeks in particular. It is the ideal way to get rid of hamster cheeks and a sagging jawline. The recovery period for this facelift is very short. There is only minimal swelling afterwards and very few side effects.
'Mini' here actually refers to the minimal scarring and recovery period after the facelift. The procedure is performed under local or intravenous anaesthesia. After the mini lift, you sleep through the anaesthetic at the clinic for a while, but you can go home the same evening. A week later you can resume all your daily activities.
A mini facelift has a lifelong effect
A mini facelift will give you good results for the rest of your life. Of course, this procedure will not stop the ageing process, but you will look 10 years younger than you actually are.
