Have you ever looked in the mirror and lifted the skin on your face and neck and wished it would stay there? At Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic, Dublin there is an innovative alternative to formal facelift surgery for those aged 40 to 55 years … a minimally invasive procedure that makes it possible in less than an hour and under local numbing anaesthesia… The minilift is aimed at those who are not “yet” candidates for a scarring surgical lift!
There are many variant options to this procedure in Dublin. The one layer face lift procedure, thread facelift, serdev facelift and scarless facelift and the one stitch lift. The MiniLift is a minimally invasive face lift procedure ideal for the lower face and jowls. For suitable candidates, it is a great alternative to the traditional lifting surgery where skin need to be removed. Patients get back to their daily routine within a day or so, and in the main incredibly pleased with the results. The duration of correction benefit from this minimally invasive procedure is a refreshed new you for up to 2 years.
The results of the MiniLift are immediate. Incisions are made behind the hairline and the surgical sutures advanced along the previously marked vector of counter-gravity support.
The best candidates for the instant scar free mini lift include both women and men in their forties to their sixties who want more dramatic and longer lasting effect than fillers and muscle relaxing injections can give, but do not want to have a full scarring or downtiming full face lift operation. Results are immediate in comparison to formal facelift surgery yet refreshingly rewarding. For suitable patients, a combination of the MiniLift together with the Softlift procedure complement each other for a more balanced face..
The MiniLift Procedure
The Dublin clinic performed scarless lift for the face uses dissolvable surgical sutures to lift and support sagging lower face structures like the jowls and jawline. Small anchor sutures are inserted in individually predetermined “vectors of lift”. These are inserted through small keyhole incisions hidden above the hair. Using special instruments, the dissolvable stitches are placed in the deep tissue plane, supporting the face without the need to cut the skin. Once inserted under the skin, they support and gently lift the skin into a more vertical and youthful position. We use small keyhole entry points high up in the hairline. These are only 2mm width. Through these tiny incisions we place a number of the sutures in the deeper layer of the skin. Sutures that lift and support the surrounding tissues. These sutures are made to react and gain strength over time. Surrounding tissue hold the sutures in place without the need for visible scars.
The results of the MiniLift are immediate. Incisions are made behind the hairline and the surgical sutures advanced along the previously marked vector of counter-gravity support. Placed stitches create firm hold on the underlying tissues with minimal trauma. Once in position, your body generates new collagen fibres that surround each suture maintaining the lifting effect for a long time to come.
