What is a Mini Facelift?

As the face ages we lose fat volume. With deflation and loss of fat volume we experience a deterioration and descent of our soft tissue. This laxity creates jowls, excess neck and cheek skin. Traditional face and necklift surgery has been the mainstay of therapy. Over the past 6 years, Dr. Mulholland has helped pioneer mini facelift technique that uses minimal access incisions, well hidden and supportive sutures and tissue techniques to provide facial rejuvenative facelift-like results with less recovery, downtime and risk at SpaMedica Toronto.

The many social, professional and lifestyle benefits of a mini facelift procedure can enhance one’s appearance and help harmonize a patient’s sense of well-being and a projection of well-being and vitality. If you are an active outgoing person who cares about their facial appearance and signs of facial ageing and want the best possible skin and soft tissue envelope, then contact us to schedule a mini facelift appointment with Dr. Stephen Mulholland.

The mini facelift procedure can be performed under local anesthesia. The procedure takes less than two hours to perform and the incisions and approaches are hidden in the scalp and behind the ear. There is a minimal amount of bruising and most patients can return to work within a week. The procedure is performed under local and oral sedation. There is no need for intravenous or general anesthesia. The results of Dr. Mulholland’s mini facelift can last for five years or more and the results have been heralded as some of the finest minimally invasive work in North America.

Following your mini facelift procedure Dr. Mulholland and his SpaMedica® Cosmetic Plastic Surgery team will recommend a comprehensive postoperative care regime over a six month period of time that is included as part of your mini lift procedure. These minimally invasive services will include Intense Pulse Light Photo Rejuvenation, FotoFacial, Laser Fractional techniques, soft tissue fillers such as Voluma, Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, Botox Injectable and Dysport Injectable. The combination of these non invasive skin enhancement techniques together with the mini facelift minimally invasive facelift procedure will leave your face looking fresh, youthful and rejuvenated. The comprehensive combination of attractive looking skin together with minimally invasive surgical techniques has made Dr. Mulholland and his certified SpaMedica® Plastic Surgery Center, one of Canada’s most reputable and busiest facial rejuvenation and facelift practices.

Your comprehensive mini facelift program will be complimented with a recommendation for our medical grade Home Skin Care which will help support and enhance your mini facelift results.

Frequently Ask Questions

Who is a Candidate?

A mini facelift involves the removal of a small amount of loose skin from the jowl and upper neck with “stealth” incisions hidden inside and behind the ear. Mini facelift candidates include all those individuals with aging signs of the face, including laxity and droopiness of the skin of the brow, cheeks, jowls and neck.

What are the intended results?

Dr. Mulholland and his SpaMedica surgical treatment team strive to achieve for you a rejuvenated, youthful and natural-looking contour to the face and neck.

What is the recuperation and healing for a Mini Facelift?

The 24 hour, skin only mini face lift has minimal downtime. You can most often apply make up and return to work after 5-7 days. Rarely, you may experience swelling and bruising and may need to take several more days off work and normal activities. In general, your skin will feel quite swollen and tight for 2 – 3 days after the procedure and there may be slight redness and bruising for a few days and some minor swelling for 24 – 48 hours. The combined thread lift and mini-facelift is an excellent, non-surgical lift effect but, does require 1 – 2 weeks until you look acceptable in makeup.

The thread lift effects will continue for up to 3 – 7 years, (depending on the type of thread lift and mini facelift done) at which point a second procedure may be performed if desired. The thread lift and mini facelift is often combined with adjunctive surgical procedures like cosmetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), microfat transplantation to the face, microliposuction of the chin and neck, or short-scar neck lifts, to name a few.

How much is a Threadlift or mini facelift treatment?

  • Mini facelifts starting from $4,999 – $6,999 (depending on the zones lifted)
  • Combined thread lift and mini facelift procedures starting from $9,999
