The mini-facelift eliminates jowls creating a youthful jaw line and youthful appearance. With the newest techniques, you can achieve a younger natural look with fuller cheeks and a well-defined jaw line. It also tightens the skin along with the underlying muscles with hidden incisions and very small scars.
Dr. Shahar has perfected the facelift procedure, minimizing scar length and visibility. The incision site becomes almost invisible so that you can have a short hair style without it being noticeable. If the neck has significant laxity (looseness) a small incision under the chin is made to remove excess fat and tighten the muscle.
Facelift is not just lifting the skin and muscle. It is also restoring facial volume, that why Dr. Shahar often performs fat grafting together with the mini facelift to create balance and harmony to the face. Having performed over a thousand facelifts enables Dr. Shahar to provide you with optimal results.
The mini facelift can be performed under local anesthesia!
The recovery is quick and easy, and you can be back to work in one week. The pain is minimal, and swelling and bruising lasts for a week.
"Nobody knows. No one. It's thrilling and I look a TON better without my double chin and lax marionettes. One person asked "did you lose weight?" and my scars are invisible. If you've been waiting a long time and hemmed and hawed about doing something, do it. He's affordable and a master and is the nicest surgeon I met with. The others barely looked in my eyes and I needed to feel real trust to have my face and necked altered! Thank you, Dr. Shahar!!"
