Dr. Mike Majmundar, double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, performs natural mini-facelifts for the residents of Atlanta, Sandy Springs, Alpharetta, and the surrounding communities in Georgia.
The Natural Mini Facelift, created by Dr. Mike Majmundar, is a procedure that addresses mild to moderate amount of jowling and neck laxity while minimizing incision size, recovery, and bruising.
How is this mini-facelift different? It differs in 3 different ways.
- Other mini-facelift techniques rely on skin pulling to achieve the desired result. In the Natural Mini-Facelift, tissues below the skin are tightened and the overlying skin is gently redraped, preventing a pulled or operated appearance everytime but still getting the beautiful jawline and neckline desired.
- Unlike traditional mini-facelifts that last 3-5 years, the Natural Mini-facelift has a longevity of 7 years or longer.
- Greater than 90% of patients undergoing the Natural Facelift do not complain about pain. Every person has a different pain tolerance and, as such, pain medicine is provided to every patient; however, greater than 90% of patients undergoing this procedure use nothing more than Tylenol.
Mini-Facelifts address mild to moderate jowling and neck laxity. It should not be used for excessive skin laxity on the jaw line, around the mouth, or in the neck. Though the average patient is 40-50
years of age, any patient with mild to moderate jowling and neck laxity is a candidate. The incisions are made in the common creases around the ear and heal well due to the nature of the Natural Mini-Facelift
technique. There is a single small incision just below the chin used for neck liposuction included in every mini-facelift to obtain a uniform neck contour and this heals very well.
The Natural Mini-facelift requires 7 days of no exercising or heavy lifting and a full 10 days for bruising and swelling to subside. Makeup may be used as soon as the stitches are removed on day 7. Heavy lifting and exercising may resume on day 7 as well. Surprisingly, pain is not a major complaint as the majority of individuals will use a mild pain reliever such as Tylenol but every patient will receive pain medicine for home use if needed.
