A Mini-lift, also called an S-lift, Quick Minilift or weekend facelift, has an especially rejuvenating effect on the cheeks and on the so-called hamster cheeks/jowls at the jawline. The recovery period for this procedure is fast, there is minimal swelling and very few side-effects.
The word 'mini' in mini-lift stands for the 'mini scar' and the 'mini recovery period' this type of facelift involves. The procedure can be performed under a local anaesthetic or intravenous sedation. After having a mini-lift performed you sleep off the anaesthetic in the clinic. You return home the same evening and can resume your daily activities one week later.
A mini-lift has a lifelong effect
A mini-lift gives life-long results. The mini-lift doesn't stop the ageing process: but you will look ten years younger than you would without the treatment.
