Mini Facelift Franklin Conveniently located to serve Franklin, Nashville, and Brentwood

The signs of aging appear in many different ways for different people. Some may experience everything from wrinkles and fine lines, loose sagging skin, and jowls throughout their entire facial region while others may experience sagging skin alone. In many cases, a traditional facelift surgery is used to address these signs of aging. But when a facelift may prove to be too extensive for the desired corrections, many patients opt to undergo a mini facelift.

Dr. Mary Lynn Moran proudly provides fully customized mini facelift procedures to help patients in Franklin, TN, reclaim their youthful look.

What is a Mini Facelift?

A mini facelift is able to cement the gap between a traditional facelift and non-invasive procedures. This versatile treatment can help address the prominent signs of aging that appear in the lower region of the face. Even though this technique is not as invasive as the traditional facelift, the mini facelift is still an invasive cosmetic procedure that involves removing excess skin and recontouring one’s facial profile. While performing the procedure, Dr. Moran will use fewer incisions to carry out the corrective process.

The Mini Facelift Procedure

The primary goal of a mini facelift is to remove excess sagging skin and lift the remaining skin to redefine the contours of one’s facial features. The procedure will begin with the administration of an anesthetic to help you feel comfortable during the treatment process. After the anesthesia has taken effect, Dr. Moran will make incisions around the ears and hairline.

She will then work to manipulate the underlying tissues by lifting it up and removing any excess skin in the treatment area. The procedure can also be performed in combination with other plastic surgery procedures such as an eye lift or brow lift for more substantial results. When the necessary corrections are made, Dr. Moran will close the incisions with sutures and bandage the area to keep it protected.

Candidates for a Mini Facelift

Just because the mini facelift is less extensive than a traditional facelift does not mean that its outcomes will be unsatisfactory. This procedure can help beautifully restore one’s youthful appearance. If a person is experiencing moderate or mild facial aging, the cosmetic procedure could be an excellent solution for a naturally refreshed look.

Patients who are suffering from the following conditions usually benefit the most from the mini facelift:

  • Jawline definition is diminished
  • Wrinkles on the face’s lower third
  • Slight skin laxity on a person’s neck, lower face, and midface

Dr. Moran will perform an initial assessment of your facial contours and ask about your medical history in order to help determine if you would make a good fit for a mini facelift. Ideal candidates for a mini facelift should be in good physical health and have realistic expectations about the procedure.
