What is a Lower Facelift?

A lower facelift, also known as a mini facelift or lower rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to address signs of aging in the lower third of the face. This area includes the jawline, neck, and lower cheeks. The procedure involves tightening sagging skin, reducing the appearance of jowls, and smoothing deep wrinkles and folds around the mouth and chin. Unlike a full facelift, a lower facelift focuses specifically on these areas, providing a more targeted approach that results in less recovery time.

A lower facelift can significantly improve the definition of the jawline and neck, creating a more youthful and sculpted appearance.

Long-Lasting Effects

While non-surgical treatments can provide temporary improvements, a lower facelift offers results that can last up to 10 years.

Recovery Time

Although less extensive than a full facelift, a lower facelift still requires a recovery period that can involve swelling, bruising, and temporary discomfort.

How a Lower Facelift Can Transform Your Life

A lower facelift can significantly improve your life by enhancing your self-confidence and overall well-being. By tightening and lifting the skin on the lower part of your face, this cosmetic procedure can help reverse the signs of aging. As a result, you may feel more youthful and refreshed, which can have a positive impact on your mental and emotional health.

With a more defined jawline and smoother facial contours, you may find yourself feeling more attractive and self-assured in social and professional settings. This increased self-esteem can lead to improved relationships, job opportunities, and an overall improved quality of life. Additionally, looking more youthful on the outside can help you feel more energetic and vibrant on the inside, allowing you to fully embrace life with a renewed sense of confidence and vitality.

Understanding the Process

The lower facelift procedure begins with a comprehensive consultation with our founder, and triple board-certified, Dr. Yanira Perez. During this consultation, she will assess your facial structure, discuss your aesthetic goals, and determine if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.

The surgery itself typically involves several key steps. First, you will be given anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. This may be local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, depending on your specific needs. Small, discreet incisions are then made around the ears and possibly under the chin, strategically placed to minimize visible scarring. The underlying muscles and tissues are tightened, and excess skin is removed, creating a firmer, more youthful appearance. Finally, the incisions are carefully closed with sutures, and bandages are applied to support the healing process.

Recovery Time and What to Expect

Recovery from a lower facelift varies from person to person, but here’s a general timeline of what you can expect:

You may experience swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort. Keeping your head elevated and applying cold compresses can help reduce these symptoms. Most patients can return to light activities within a few days.
