What should I expect during the procedure?

A mini facelift is performed in Dr. Siegel’s office as an outpatient procedure. During your Houston mini facelift, a small s-shaped incision will be made around the ear and in the hairline area. This type of incision limits scarring. Dr. Siegel will then reposition skin, fat tissue, and tighten loose muscles to improve the appearance on the lower third of the face, smoothing the first signs of jowls and restoring youthful jawline definition. A mini facelift is not a “one size fits all” procedure. Dr. Siegel will customize your mini facelift to meet your specific needs and goals.

Your mini facelift can produce beautifully natural results – when performed by a talented, experienced surgeon. Dr. Michel Siegel is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon who is widely regarded in Houston as a premier facial surgery specialist. Dr. Siegel believes a successful facelift is one that nobody knows you had.

Am I a good candidate for a mini facelift?

A mini facelift is a great option for anyone who is looking to rejuvenate their look. It is less invasive than a traditional facelift but perfect for those who are showing early signs of aging on the lower area of the face.

How much does a mini facelift cost?

The cost of a mini facelift with Dr. Siegel varies, but typically ranges between $5,000 to $7,000, but the cost increases with twilight anesthesia.

What are the benefits?

  • Natural-looking
  • Minimal scarring
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Less pain
  • Lower cost
  • Performed without general anesthesia

Will there be visible scars?

The incisions used for a mini facelift are placed carefully. Dr. Siegel will do everything to ensure any scarring will be well concealed within the natural skin creases to minimize visibility. The scars will not be visible to others once you have healed.

Why a mini facelift?

Women in their early to mid 40’s realize the geometry of their face has started shifting from oval to square, as the definition on the jawline and neck is beginning to fade with the descent of tissue creating jowls and a turkey neck. Re-establishing this smooth jawline can be done in about 90 minutes and can restore the youthful appearance associated with a youthful face.

While Dr. Siegel performs fillers with great success to reverse the signs of aging in the mid face (cheek area), fillers do not lift sagging tissue such as jowls. It is also his opinion that devices that “promise” to “lift” the face with technologies such as radiofrequency, ultrasound, or other forms of energy, fail to deliver their promise of either lifting or being pain free. Dr. Siegel has developed a true mini facelift procedure. It can be performed in about 90 minutes, can be done under local or twilight sedation, and recovery is quick. Most patients return to work after a week with immediate visible results. There is no need to wait 6-12 weeks to see if and when collagen will tighten to see results.

How long will it take to recover from a mini facelift?

Although Dr. Siegel’s Houston mini facelift is less invasive than a traditional facelift, the surgical adjustments to the facial muscles may be just as extensive. Each patient’s needs are different, and the recovery depends on the extent of the procedure. Patients should expect to be back on their feet again in as little as a day or two. Any bruising or swelling typically resolves within a week and most people can return to work within days. A mini facelift is often called a “weekend facelift” due to the fast recovery time.
