Mini Facelifts often result in a rejuvenated and energised appearance; they can define certain areas of your face, or remove excess fat. These all contribute to the self-esteem factor, something that will undoubtedly be greatly improved once you’ve made the adjustments to your face that wish you for. Of course, whilst there are many benefits to a mini facelift, there are also precautions and elements you must take into consideration before taking the plunge. Here at Wentworth Clinic, we’re the experts in providing you with the nips and tucks you require, and as such, here are important points to consider before undertaking a mini facelift!
Am I right for a mini-facelift?
Of course, the overall outcome should answer the question ‘am I right for a mini facelift?’ The appropriate candidate will need to take a number of factors into account, however, two of the most important include:
- Physical aptitude – Recovering and healing will require a great deal of energy, and as such previous medical conditions, as well as smoking and a general unfit lifestyle, will complicate the procedure and make for unsuitable candidates.
- Realistic expectations of the outcome – Being aware of the limitations as well as the complexities of the surgery are great assets to have. Good candidates will remain grounded with their expectations as well as optimistic. A mini-facelift doesn’t stop ageing altogether, but it can certainly alter your appearance for the better.
Of course, a mini facelift doesn’t involve intensive surgery, as is the case with its full-blown facelift counterpart, and is generally ideal for those aged in their late 30’s – 50’s who wish to take perhaps five years off their appearance by way of the removal of sagging skin around the cheeks and neck area.
Recovery time is also something to consider, as you will require at least one week away from work, with lots of rest and ideally someone to look after you. Is this a feasible eventuality?
With all these things to consider, as well as host of questions you’ll want to ask your surgeon (good examples are, what to eat and drink, recovery time, the amount of pain involved and how long the results will last) here at Wentworth Clinic, we’re professional cosmetic surgeons, and are sure you’ll feel safe with us!
