Mini Facelift Reno

A “mini lift” is a term that describes a smaller version of the traditional facelift in Reno or Tahoe/Truckee. Dr. Virden has performed over 750 mini lift procedures. This procedure is appropriate for the patient who has fullness in the mid face and jowling and early neck aging. This occurs in patients in their mid-40s through 60s. This procedure requires much less dissection and downtime than a traditional facelift.

About the Mini Lift

Just like a traditional facelift, this procedure requires a considerable amount of artistry to insure that not only does the result look natural, but it’s also long lasting. Even though the recovery is faster and the incisions are shorter than a standard facelift, the principles remain the same. The tension is put on the deeper SMAS (Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System) and not on the skin. Generally, people can be back at work within 4 to 5 days. Although a mini lift is a surgical procedure, the incisions are well hidden and become quite inconspicuous. A mini lift can be performed alone; however, it is often performed in conjunction with other procedures like an eyelid lift.

Dr. Virden wants you to be clear that this smaller lift is held strongly by deep internal tissues and will last many years. It is NOT a QuickLift™; it is not a Lifestyle Lift®; it is not an abbreviated lift created during tough economic times. Dr. Virden also utilizes his own technique of lifting the mid-face with small sutures creating a youthful cheek bone silhouette.
