How long does a Mini-Facelift operation take?

The Mini-Facelift is a refined technique requiring less disturbance of the facial tissues and therefore is quicker. It takes perhaps 1-1.5 hours. There are variations of technique and sometimes extra refinements are indicated, such as fat grafting and stem cell treatments.

Some surgeons used to take well over five hours for the standard full facelift.

Historically, face-lift operations have been lengthier procedures, resulting in higher pain levels and longer healing time. Modern technology and refined techniques mean that a Mini Face-Lift operation now lasts around 1 to 1.5 hours, it is painless and healing time is much faster.

Choosing a surgeon who is an expert in their field and specializes in face-lifts will ensure you get the best results possible. At the Cadogan Clinic, we have clever innovative surgeons. You will be in excellent hands.
