Dr. Hankins and Dr. Sohn feel that the ”mini-facelifts” that you hear so much about in the media today offer an excellent alternative for many patients. However, if you are searching for a mini-facelift surgeon in the Las Vegas area or in other parts of the country for that matter, you should be aware of several things: First, the national companies that advertise things like “lifestyle lift” ™ or “quick lift” ™ are just naming a procedure that some plastic surgeons have a great deal of experience performing, but many don’t. There is no guarantee that you will get the results advertised, and the results are going to be related to the quality of the surgeon who “signs up” in your particular area with those companies. Second, choosing a surgeon is a very important component of your overall surgical experience. Is the surgeon associated with one of these national companies as concerned with your overall experience as a plastic surgeon with his own practice who understands the vital importance of happy patients – with a reputation for getting excellent results, safety, and consistency? Finally, it is extremely important that you are realistic regarding your probable results and understand the alternatives - unfortunately, this is the area where some of these national companies fall short. Rather than a cookie-cutter approach where every patient is offered one type of lift – because that is all the doctor is trained to do, don’t you owe it to yourself to consult with a plastic surgeon who has the full complement of skills and procedures that may be necessary to give you the best possible result?
Like the “lifestyle lift” ™, the mini-facelift relies on sutures placed in the deeper layers of the face to lift the soft tissue, which achieves a long-lasting lift; then the skin is re-draped to remove the excess. Most patients can return to their social schedule/work schedule within one week. There are normally no sutures to remove and the healed incisions, because they are kept to a minimum, are subtle and hidden in natural creases. The mini-facelift can be done comfortably under local anesthesia to help make the surgery both safer, more cost effective, as well as easier to recover from. In fact, our costs are very competitive with the national doc-in-a-box chain that markets procedures similar to our mini-facelift.
