What Is A Mini Facelift?

A mini face lift, also known as a short scar facelift, is a cosmetic procedure that aims to restore a youthful appearance to the face by improving specific areas such as the jawline and jowls. Neck Contouring can also be performed in conjunction with a mini facelift to improve the appearance of the neck and restore a more youthful contour to the jawline.

The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic with sedation or general anaesthetic, and involves making a small incision in front of the ear, tightening underlying muscles and fascia and removing excess skin.

Although not as comprehensive as a full facelift, a mini facelift can still deliver significant cosmetic improvement and is a good option for those who are not ready for a full facelift or have minimal signs of ageing.

A mini facelift targets specific areas of the face to improve signs of aging, such as sagging skin and wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Benefits Of Mini Face Lift

There are several benefits to a mini facelift, these include:

Minimally Invasive

A mini facelift is less invasive than a full facelift and involves making a shorter incision and less disruption of the underlying muscles and tissues. This means that there is less scarring, swelling, and bruising after the procedure.

Shorter Recovery Time

Because a mini facelift is less invasive, patients can typically return to their normal activities within a few days. This means that there is less downtime and less time off work.

Natural-Looking Results

A mini facelift focuses on specific areas of the face, so it can deliver results that are natural-looking. This is especially important for those who want to restore a youthful appearance to their face without looking “overdone.”


A mini facelift is typically less expensive than alternatives such as thread lifts and is longer lasting, making it a more cost-effective option for those who are looking to rejuvenate their appearance.

Safe and Effective

A mini facelift is a safe and effective way to rejuvenate the appearance of the face and does not rely on any foreign body or material.

It’s important to remember that a mini facelift is still a surgical procedure, and it is important to choose a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to perform the surgery. Be sure to have a thorough consultation with your surgeon to discuss your goals and expectations, as well as any potential risks and complications associated with the procedure

How Is Mini Face Lift Performed?

A mini facelift is performed as a day case procedure under local anaesthetic with sedation or general anaesthetic if preferred. A short incision is made in the natural skin creases in front of the ear to allow access to the underlying muscles and tissues, which are then lifted and repositioned to restore a youthful appearance. The excess skin is then removed and the incisions are closed with sutures and dressed.

After the procedure, patients can return to normal activities within a few days but should avoid strenuous exercise or heavy lifting for four weeks. It is important to adhere to the post-procedure instructions and follow up care to ensure the best outcome.

Understanding the Deep Plane FaceLift Procedure

This is a surgical procedure that focuses on enhancing the facial anatomy of a patient by working on a deeper layer of the facial tissue, called the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS). This layer consists of dense connective tissue and muscles that provide structural support to the overlying facial tissues.

The procedure is particularly effective in addressing excess skin, volume loss and descent in the midface resulting in jowls, in the midface and jowls, as well as improving the contours of the jawline and neck.

Healing Process

Immediately after the surgery, patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can last for few days to a week. You will be provided with pain relief medication and a support garment to alleviate discomfort and reduce swelling.

It is advised to keep the head elevated and avoid strenuous activity during the initial recovery period. After a week, the skin sutures are normally removed and additional after care instructions are given such as the use of a compression garment and avoiding sun exposure.

Your surgeon will provide additional aftercare instructions, such as wearing a compression garment or avoiding sun exposure.

Over the following weeks, the swelling and bruising will gradually subside, and the final results are realised. It’s essential to follow the surgeon’s aftercare instructions carefully to ensure a smooth and successful healing process.

How is a Mummy Makeover carried out
at HR Plastic Surgery?

If you decide to have your Mummy Makeover surgery with us at HR Plastic Surgery, this is what you can expect:


Your first consultation is a crucial part of your journey and we make it a priority that you feel at ease throughout. Carried out by Mr Ridha personally, he will take time to listen carefully to understand your goals, before examining you in the presence of a chaperone.

He will then discuss the suitable treatment options available, including the risks and benefits, recovery times and expected outcomes. Mr Ridha is happy for you to attend with a family member or friend should you feel it necessary or for additional support. 


As a Mummy Makeover consists of a combination of procedures but all require a general anaesthetic and typically involve a 1 to 2-night stay in the hospital. The total amount of time needed to carry out your surgery will depend on the specific procedures you have chosen. The full details of your procedures will be explained to you at your initial consultation. 


Recovery time slightly varies depending on which procedures you have. Most patients are considered fully recovered after 3 to 4 months but final results can take from 6 to 12 months as by this time all swelling will have resolved and the tissue settled completely.

It is important to follow the advice of your surgeon’s postoperative guidelines to ensure you recover as quickly as possible.

A good candidate for a mini facelift is someone who is in good health and has mild to moderate sagging or wrinkles in the mid face and lower facial area. The procedure is not appropriate for individuals with extensive ageing or sagging skin in other areas of the face or neck.

Like any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with a mini facelift, including bleeding, infection, and scarring. There may also be temporary swelling, bruising, and numbness in the treated area. The plastic surgeon will discuss the risks and side effects in detail prior to the procedure.

Not necessarily, a mini facelift is typically performed under local anaesthesia with mild sedation. This means that the patient is conscious but relaxed during the procedure and experiences minimal discomfort. Should it be desired, the procedure can be performed under general anaesthetic.

The main difference between a mini facelift and a traditional facelift is the extent of the procedure and the areas of the face that are treated. A mini facelift is less invasive and focuses on the mid and lower facial area, specifically the cheeks and jawline. The incisions are shorter and the recovery time is shorter. On the other hand, a traditional facelift addresses ageing and sagging in the lower face, neck, and jowls, and typically necessitates a longer incision that extends behind the ear.

Yes, a mini facelift can often be performed in combination with other cosmetic procedures, such as eyelid surgery, brow lift, or skin resurfacing. The plastic surgeon will discuss the options and make recommendations based on your individual situation.

A mini facelift is a surgical procedure that involves incisions, repositioning of the underlying muscles and tissues, and removal of any excess skin. A non-surgical facelift, on the other hand, typically involves the use of injectable treatments, such as dermal fillers or Botox, to improve the appearance of the face and does not involve surgery.

The results of a mini facelift can be long-lasting with proper skin care and maintenance. However, no cosmetic procedure can stop the ageing process entirely, and the results of a mini facelift will eventually fade over time. The length of time that the results will last will depend on a number of factors, including the patient’s age, skin type, and overall health.
