Is a lifting of the lower area of the face minimally invasive and with short recovery time. More important it allows the laxity of the cheekbones, cheeks and jaw to be raised without altering the natural features of the face. A real rejuvenation and thus ensures lasting results.
Much less invasive than a complete cervical facial facelift is termed a short scar. The incision stops at the level of the earlobe which allows to hide completely the any scar or sign.
It provides a minimal disconnect of the subcutaneous planes, therefore it is a less invasive method, which involves minor risks and so is suitable for a greater number of patients. Through this minimally invasive detachment is possible to act on subcutaneous facial tissues following the vertical traction vectors, for a natural and lasting result.
This allow to:
• Reduce tension at the meeting area between the neck and the jaw, therefore at the mandibular line;
• Correct laxity of the cheek area by stretching the nasolabial folds;
• Raise the diseased zygomatic region restoring fullness and convexity to the cheekbone.
The so obtained lifting of deeper tissues create a lifting of the skin of the face too whose excess will be removed at the ear level.
The Minmally Invasive Facelift is therefore effective in removing excess skin from the mandibular area, to improve the jaw line and to help reduce nasolabial folds. It is indicated in patients between 30 and 60 years, with slight or medium subsidence.
It can be associated with other procedures such as:
• Upper and lower blepharoplasty
• Liposuction of submental fat and neck
• Lipofilling fillers
• Limited and therefore less invasive intervention.
• Provides less bruising and swelling.
• The recovery period is shorter than traditional facelift.
• The scar is small and well hidden.
• The technique is safer even for smokers, since there is a lower risk of tissue necrosis.
• The risk of compromising the facial nerves is significantly lower.
• The operation is performed under local anesthesia combined with a slight sedation and the patient can be discharged the same day.
The surgery lasts about 60 to 90 minutes and at the end a compressive dressing is applied on the face, which must be maintained for 48 hours, then it will be replaced by a sheath for 7 to 10 days. Stitches are removed after 10 days and patient will return to social activities after 7 to 14 days.
The result is very natural and last for a period of about 10 years.
