How much does a mini facelift cost?
Your personal investment will vary depending on the experience of your surgeon and your location. Contact Aesthetic MdR to set up your personalized consultation where you can find out the cost for a mini facelift in Santa Monica.
Do I need a mini facelift or a traditional facelift?
The traditional, full facelift is designed for more advanced signs of facial aging. Mini facelift patients tend to be younger and want to correct relatively mild skin laxity and sagging.
What kind of anesthesia is used?
Your mini facelift can be done under local anesthesia and sedation, or general anesthesia. During your initial consultation at our Marina del Rey office, we will review the options and help you determine which one is in your best interest.
Will there be scars?
Although there may be slight scarring after a mini facelift, the incisions will be small and mostly hidden. Most of your scarring should fade over time.
What are the risks?
Like all cosmetic surgeries, a mini facelift does come with certain risks. The most common risks of the procedure include:
- Nerve injury
- Anesthesia issues
- Wound healing issues
- Hair loss
- Skin loss
- Unsatisfactory results
How long does the procedure take?
On average, a mini facelift procedure will take between one and two hours.
Is this procedure covered by insurance?
Because it’s primarily a cosmetic procedure, a mini facelift will typically not be covered by health insurance.
