I have women see me who pull up on their jawline and ask for surgical results similar to what they are simulating. In the proper candidate, a minimal incision procedure under local anesthesia may be all that is necessary in achieving this goal.
Candidates for this procedure tend to be healthy and thin, somewhere between 40 and 60 years old, with nice cheek structure but laxity along the jawline indicating aging. The neck is not significantly lax or full. This is a mini procedure that is great for freshening the face in a remarkable way. When your friends see you, they should see a more refreshed face, a change they cannot put their finger on – just something pretty and positive. The associated confidence boost helps create an even greater impact on those around you.
The procedure is performed under only local anesthesia, so patients can drive themselves to the office and home afterward. The incision hugs the ear in creases that are well hidden. Sutures are removed 1 week later. There is no necessary downtime.
My patients love this procedure. It is not expensive, requires minimal healing, has no downtime, and has visible results with a single procedure.
Please call 410-616-3000 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Shermak. She can see if you are a good candidate for her mini facelift procedure, or any other plastic surgery procedure.
