    Mini-Lift in New York City and New Jersey

    View Our Mini-Lift Before and After Pictures

    The Plastic Surgery Center Internationale, which provides state-of-the-art innovations in the field of cosmetic plastic surgery & age management, offers mini-lifts to patients who desire a fresh look.

    If you are just beginning to show the early signs of aging, such as sagging of the skin in the mid-section of your face, then a mini-lift may be a solution for you. While a mini-lift is similar to a facelift, the incisions are smaller since the doctor pulls only your facial skin tight. Since there is less disruption of your facial tissues with a mini-lift in comparison to a full facelift, the recovery time is much shorter than the traditional procedures.

    Who Is a Suitable Candidate for Mini-Lift in New York City and New Jersey?

    While it is impossible to tell you definitively whether a mini-lift is the right solution for your concerns, here are some general questions that suggest you may be a suitable candidate for a mini-lift:

    • Is your facial skin and tissue healthy?
    • Are you realistic about your expectations for the outcome of the mini-lift procedure?
    • Are you in reasonably good physical and psychological health?

    If you honestly answered “yes” to these questions, then the next step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Giampapa. During this appointment, you and the doctor will review your medical history, address any current medical concerns, and explore different options you have to achieve your goals for aesthetic surgery. If both you and the physician decide that a mini-lift is the best choice for you, expect to receive instructions about how to prepare for surgery, as well as information about anesthesia, sedation, pain control options, and post-surgical care.

    If you are ready to find out if a mini-lift is the best solution for you, call the Plastic Surgery Center Internationale at 973-746-3535 today to schedule your consultation.

    What to Expect Before, During, and After Mini-Lift in New York City and New Jersey

    Before Your Mini-Lift

    Some of the ways you’ll be asked to prepare for your mini-lift include the following:

    • If you are a smoker, you’ll need to refrain from tobacco use several weeks prior to the procedure.
    • Stop taking aspirin, NSAIDS, and other medications or supplements that have the potential to increase your risk of heavy bleeding.

    The Day of Your Surgery

    On the day of your mini-lift, the following will occur:

    • The surgical team will prep you for surgery and answer any of your last-minute questions.
    • You’ll local anesthesia for your comfort during the procedure.
    • Once the anesthesia takes effect, your mini-lift surgery begins. By making smaller incisions in your skin and using an endoscopic camera, the doctor is able to reposition your skin to remove sagging and wrinkles without making a large incision. The final step in the procedure is closing the incisions with either sutures or skin adhesives.

    Your Recovery

    After you have recovered from most of the sedation, and the doctor approves your departure, you’ll be able to go home. As part of your aftercare plan, you may be prescribed antibiotics to prevent infection and pain control medicine. Most people find they need the pain medicine for only about 24 hours, and then they can manage any minor discomfort with over-the-counter treatments. Since they experience so little discomfort or swelling after their mini-lift, many patients return to their regular activities within a day of surgery.
