Q) I’m an African American female and I’m in my mid-60s. I’ve been doing my research about the mini facelift. I’d like some more information on this process. What is the recovery length? What kind of anesthesia will be used?
A) In facelifting, there are many different types of surgery performed as a facelift. In recent times, the mini facelift has become very popular. It generally involves smaller incisions, and the advantage of this is less anesthetic, quicker recovery time, less bruising and also less cost. However, the trade off maybe that the result does not last as long as the complete facelift. Depending on the procedure, the anesthesia can very. Local anesthetic techniques with IV sedation maybe used.
