What is a mini facelift?

A mini facelift is a less invasive surgical option than a traditional facelift that directly targets the lower half of the face to smooth wrinkles and tighten sagging skin on the neck and jawline. As a minor outpatient procedure using local anesthesia, it requires fewer stitches and less downtime to smooth away wrinkles and tighten sagging skin. 

How much does a mini facelift in New York City cost?

A mini facelift procedure in the Manhattan, New York, area can range anywhere from $2,500-$20,000, based on the extent of the procedure, the surgeon’s experience, the facility’s location, and any additional services or treatments included in the package. To determine your specific mini facelift price, schedule an in-person consultation with Dr. Miller. 


*Prices reflect the average cost of the procedure in the area. For an actual quote, please contact Dr. Miller directly.

What questions should I ask my mini facelift provider?

Make sure to ask the following questions during your mini facelift consultation:

  • What are your qualifications and experience with mini facelifts?
  • How many mini facelifts have you performed?
  • Can I see before-and-after photos of your mini facelift patients?
  • What can I realistically expect in terms of results?
  • What does the mini facelift procedure involve?
  • What type of anesthesia will you use?
  • What is the recovery process like?
  • What are the potential risks and complications of a mini facelift?
  • How do you handle complications or unsatisfactory outcomes?
  • What will the total cost of the mini facelift be, including all fees?
  • How long will the results last?
  • Will I need to follow any specific pre- or post-operative care instructions?
  • How much downtime should I expect, and when can I return to my normal activities?
  • Are there any alternatives to a mini facelift that I should consider?

What are the benefits of a mini facelift?

Mini facelift surgery offers many benefits, including:

  • Reduced signs of aging
  • Subtle, natural-looking results
  • Less downtime than a full facelift
  • Local anesthesia instead of general anesthesia
  • Cost-effective compared to a full facelift
  • Minimal scarring
  • Fewer risks than more invasive procedures

What is done during a mini facelift?

Mini facelift lift procedures done in Dr. Miller’s office take less than ninety minutes using local anesthesia, after which you are able to return home. Dr. Miller makes a small incision near your ear to directly target areas of the face that are showing early signs of aging, such as wrinkles and skin laxity. Using the most advanced tools, he removes excess fat and reshapes the underlying muscles to reveal a tighter, more youthful appearance. 

What age is suitable for a mini facelift?

The suitable age for a mini facelift typically ranges from the mid-40s to late 50s. This range is ideal because it targets individuals starting to notice mild to moderate signs of aging, such as sagging skin and decreased elasticity, but who do not yet require the more extensive correction of a full facelift. However, the appropriateness of a mini facelift also heavily depends on individual factors, including skin condition, genetic predispositions, and personal aesthetic goals. A consultation with Dr. Miller is the best way to determine the right timing for a mini facelift based on your specific circumstances.

Is a mini facelift painful?

You may experience minor discomfort after your mini facelift, but prescription pain medication or over-the-counter pain relievers can help to alleviate any discomfort. 

How long can the results of a mini facelift last?

Mini lifts can produce lasting benefits, often up to 10 years. You can enjoy long-term results with proper self-care, such as maintaining a healthy weight and skincare routine. 

What are the risks of a mini facelift?

Maintaining your safety is one of Dr. Miller’s primary goals. He is extremely attentive to detail and has fine-tuned the mini facelift procedure for over twenty years. Though complications are extremely rare, some possible risks could include nerve damage, asymmetry, delayed wound healing, bleeding, or infection.
