Lift Your Lower Face
For many people, signs of aging begin in the lower face. As the skin’s production of collagen and elastin naturally slows down, the tissues in the chin and jaw area can become lax and saggy. A Mission Viejo mini facelift is a good option for individuals who want to address early to moderate signs of sagging or loss of definition in the cheeks and jowls. Similar to a facelift, a mini facelift is performed to lift, tighten, and minimize excess tissues to restore a smoother, more defined appearance. However, a mini facelift uses smaller incisions to lift underlying tissues of the lower face from within, making it a good option for people without too much excess skin. Double board-certified surgeon Reza Bolourian, M.D., F.A.C.S., of Orange County Surgical Specialists can help you assess your needs to determine whether a mini facelift is right for you.
Define Your Jawline
With a mini facelift Mission Viejo cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Bolourian, will make small incisions at the hairline and around the ears to access and lift the tissues of the lower face.
This helps smooth the skin and re-contour the chin and jawline for a lifted, youthful appearance. While a full facelift utilizes longer incisions to facilitate the removal of excess skin, a mini facelift is ideal for those with less excess skin who can benefit from targeted lifting and repositioning of the tissues of the lower face and neck.
Reclaim Youthful Contours
A mini facelift is an excellent option for younger patients and those with less pronounced sagging of facial tissues. Because a mini facelift uses smaller incisions, recovery time is slightly shorter than recovery from a facelift, and the scars will be smaller. In addition, lifting and smoothing the tissues of the lower face enhances the appearance of the entire face and upper body, providing more youthful, toned contours. Some patients choose to combine a mini facelift with another procedure, such as a brow lift, blepharoplasty, or skin rejuvenation. We can help you decide if combining complementary procedures can provide the results you are looking for.
Learn About Your Options
Not sure which procedure is right for you? Your first step is to schedule a consultation with Orange County Surgical Specialist’s Dr. Bolourian. He will discuss your options with you in greater detail and provide individualized recommendations based on a careful analysis of your facial features.

Minimal Incisions. Maximum Results.
We will provide you with pre-operative instructions to help you prepare for a safe procedure and recovery. Your Mission Viejo mini facelift will most likely be performed using a combination of local anesthesia and twilight sedation. Our mini facelift takes advantage of small incisions in and around the hairline. A mini facelift still addresses the underlying SMAS layer by releasing and suspending it in a vertical direction.
With our approach to the mini facelift Mission Viejo patients will have their saggy cheeks, jowls and chin line improved. If you are looking to correct a saggy neck or significant bands under the neck, a lower facelift may be more beneficial to you. When your mini facelift is complete, we will carefully monitor you in a comfortable recovery area until you are ready to safely and comfortably return home. We also offer aftercare from local nursing vendors should you wish for at-home support during early recovery.
Customized for You
Your neck, under-chin (submental), and chin area will appear lifted and sculpted to more youthful, athletic contours. The quality of your skin will also be more toned and taut. Although a mini facelift does not pause the aging process, it does help turn back the clock, providing results that will continue to enhance the appearance of your skin and facial structure for years to come.
Hold Your Confidence High
We are often asked, how long should I take off work after a mini facelift? Our patients are told that recovery varies from patient to patient. It may take as little as three to four days or as long as two weeks for you to get back to work. Make sure to follow your home aftercare instructions and attend any post-operative visits. We are always available to answer questions and support you in achieving an optimal recovery and beautiful results.
Individuals who want to correct less advanced sagging of the skin and tissues of the lower face may benefit from a mini facelift. To ensure a successful recovery, candidates should be non-smokers in good overall health. At your consultation, Dr. Bolourian can help you assess whether a mini facelift is a good fit for your goals, schedule, and budget.
