Where Will Mini Facelift Incisions Be on the Face?

By: Dr. Sean Kelishadi, M.D. FACS


A mini facelift is a specialized procedure available at SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA, performed by Dr. Sean Kelishadi. This less invasive alternative to a full facelift targets signs of aging in the lower face, particularly around the cheeks and jawline. The procedure is ideal for individuals seeking significant aesthetic improvement with reduced recovery time. Unlike a full facelift, which addresses the entire face and often the neck, the mini facelift focuses on specific areas, offering a more targeted approach.

Where are the incisions made in a mini facelift?

During a mini facelift, Dr. Kelishadi typically makes incisions around the ears and hairline. These incisions are strategically placed to ensure minimal visibility, blending seamlessly with the natural contours of the face. The aim is to provide a natural-looking enhancement with minimal scarring. The specific placement and length of these incisions vary according to each patient's facial structure and the goals of the surgery.

What can you expect during mini facelift recovery?

The recovery period for a mini facelift is generally shorter and less complex than that of a full facelift. Patients at SSK Plastic Surgery can expect some swelling and bruising, but these symptoms usually diminish within a week or two. It's crucial to follow Dr. Kelishadi's post-operative instructions, including avoiding strenuous activities and direct sun exposure. Most patients resume their normal routines within a few weeks, revealing a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.

How can you prepare for your mini facelift surgery?

Preparation for a mini facelift involves a comprehensive consultation with your surgeon. In the case of Dr. Kelishadi at SSK Plastic Surgery, patients discuss their aesthetic goals, medical history, and any specific concerns. Adherence to pre-operative instructions, such as pausing certain medications and planning for post-surgery care, is vital for a smooth procedure and recovery. This preparation is key to the success of the surgery and achieving the desired results.
