Mini Facelift/Limited Facelift
Mini Facelift or Limited Facelift
As we age, the skin around our neck, jaw and cheekbones begins to lose its elasticity. Wrinkles, frown lines, and sagging skin threatens to completely distort our profile. Even with exercise, juicing, proper hydration and vitamins, these effects of time and gravity are difficult to combat without the assistance of a Mini Facelift and other cosmetic surgeries.
For patients who desire the rejuvenating benefits of a traditional facelift without the longer recovery time and invasive techniques, the Mini Facelift is a subtle and convenient solution with beautiful, natural outcomes. This procedure will tighten and tone the mid-face and upper neck via inconspicuous incisions behind the ears melting away years of stress and fatigue from the appearance. It is often complemented by a neck lift or eyelid surgery. Additionally, Dr. Capizzi may recommend laser resurfacing and injectables like Juvéderm® fillers or Botox® for a complete facial rejuvenation.

About The Procedure
Dr. Capizzi offers a comprehensive surgical approach to facelifts. Cutaneous, or skin-only facelifts do not offer results that follow his high standards. Thus, Dr. Capizzi will manipulate the surface skin and the fatty layer beneath. For more extensive laxity, he may also tighten the underlying muscles known as the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System, or SMAS. This approach delivers results that are far more natural and sustainable, while achieving the goal of a more youthful and revitalized appearance.
Dr. Capizzi will make undetectable incisions from below the earlobe to the hairline (behind the ears). Allowing him to pull the skin and SMAS upwards and outwards, reducing wrinkles and sagging folds of skin around the lower face and jaw. Kybella® will be injected to permanently dissolve fatty areas beneath the chin, neck, and around the mouth. Finally, a Microlaser Peel resurfaces the skin and provides the youthful appearance we all desire.
Having been through the Capizzi experience, these patients can help you understand the smoothness of the journey.
A Mini Facelift takes approximately two to three hours to complete. Most stitches dissolve on their own and the rest are removed during your follow-up appointment. Although some bruising and swelling is to be expected, most patients return to normal activities within a few days. Most patients can undergo the procedure without having to take any time off from work. As part of the Capizzi Method, every patient meets with a nurse and Medical Aesthetician at their first post-operative appointment. During this time, the patient undergoes a lymphatic massage treatment, which increases blood flow and encourages healing. Known as one of the top cosmetic practices in the region, Dr. Capizzi and his staff are on hand at all times should you never advice or help during your healing process.
