What is minilifting?
Minilifting is a new surgical technique that aims to rejuvenate the appearance of the face by eliminating the flaccidity and wrinkles that appear over the years.
This surgical procedure is performed by specialists at the Clínica ICA and involves making minimal incisions and detaching the tissues of the face and neck to achieve a facelift that eliminates the flaccidity of the skin.
Unlike the traditional facelift, minilifting is a small superficial surgery that takes place in the subcutaneous plane, with smaller incisions to achieve the detachment of tissues in a smaller proportion without lifting all the facial skin, in order to obtain more natural results.
The treatment incisions are usually made at strategic points to hide them from view, for example, at the hairline or behind the ears.
How does the procedure work?
Through the mini-lift technique, the specialist will make small incisions specifically behind the ear or just in the area of the hairline, to reposition and tighten the skin that has fallen out of place, especially in the cheekbone and cheek area.
Generally, about 3 cm of skin is detached to isolate the SMAS, which is the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System, the tissue that connects all the facial structures in order to stretch it and reposition the skin in a natural way.
Finally, the anterior lobe incision is closed with an invisible intradermal suture. The success of this treatment is based on the fact that, in contrast to the well-known facelift, the tissue detachment is less pronounced to tighten the muscles of the face and eliminate flaccidity.
The best thing about the mini facelift is that it is a less invasive surgery that can even be performed under local anaesthesia, with a mild level of sedation and on an outpatient basis; unlike other facial rejuvenation treatments. In addition, it will offer more natural results and the incisions will be undetectable.
