Mini Face Lift


The mini face lift is a treatment that’s usually performed under local anaesthetic that reduces the signs of ageing by tightening the skin in the face. It’s favoured my some patients due to its low down time.

The Mini Face Lift Procedure with Dr. Sof


Considering a mini face lift to address early signs of aging and achieve a refreshed appearance? Discover what to expect when you choose Dr. Sofiane Rimouche for your mini face lift journey:

Consultation and Evaluation: Your mini face lift journey begins with a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Sof. During this initial meeting, Dr. Sof will listen attentively to your concerns, assess your facial anatomy, and discuss your goals for facial rejuvenation. He will perform a thorough examination to determine if a mini face lift is the most suitable option to address your needs.

Preparation: On the day of your mini face lift procedure, you’ll arrive at the surgical facility prepared for your surgery. Dr. Sof and his team will ensure you’re comfortable and relaxed before administering anaesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

Surgical Technique: Dr. Sof will employ advanced surgical techniques to lift and rejuvenate specific areas of the face affected by early signs of aging, such as the lower face and jawline. Unlike a traditional face lift, a mini face lift involves making shorter incisions and focusing on targeted areas to achieve subtle yet significant improvements in facial contour and appearance.

Incision Placement: Dr. Sof will make discreet incisions along the hairline and around the ears to access underlying tissues. These incisions are carefully placed to minimise visible scarring and ensure natural-looking results.

Tissue Repositioning and Tightening: Dr. Sof will lift and reposition sagging facial muscles and tissues, removing excess skin and smoothing wrinkles to create a more youthful and refreshed appearance. The mini face lift procedure targets specific areas of concern, such as the jowls and neck, to restore definition and contour to the face.

Closing Incisions and Recovery: Following the procedure, Dr. Sof will close the incisions with sutures and apply dressings as needed. You’ll be closely monitored in the recovery area before being discharged with detailed post-operative instructions. Dr. Sof will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress, address any concerns, and ensure a smooth recovery process.

Results: As you heal from the mini face lift procedure, you should begin to notice the rejuvenating effects on your facial appearance. This type of treatment aims to offer natural-looking results that enhance your features while maintaining harmony and balance.


Important Note from Dr. Sof: While you may notice initial improvements, the complete results of your mini facelift surgery may take a few months as swelling gradually subsides.

Guidance on Return to Activities: Your personalised plan for gradually resuming daily activities will be carefully tailored in collaboration with Dr. Sof, ensuring a seamless transition back to your regular routine.

"Dr. Sof is a very professional, informative and caring doctor. He made me feel happy and extremely comfortable with my chosen treatment".


A mini facelift is similar to a full face lift, but it’s less dramatic, the recovery time is lower and the results aren’t as noticeable. It’s a less invasive procedure that lifts wrinkles and sagging in the lower part of the face. This is a great option if you’re not quite ready for a full procedure or if you’d like to choose a more affordable treatment.

The procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic (you remain awake) and takes around 1-1.5 hours to complete.

After you’re discharged, we’ll provide you with aftercare instructions and make a follow up appointment for you to monitor your progress and check that you’re recovering as you should be.

You’ll start to see results almost immediately, after any swelling and bruising has gone down.

Patients often enquire about the distinctions between a mini facelift and a traditional facelift, including the areas of the face targeted, the extent of incisions, and the level of invasiveness involved in each procedure.
