Can a mini facelift be performed with other non-invasive treatments like injectables to maximize your results?
I really love the results that a mini facelift can provide the properly selected patient. I often times will inject the patient with fat at the same time that I am performing the mini facelift to help rejuvenate areas of the face which are not corrected with the mini facelift. Facial fat injections to the nasolabial folds and midface area are tremendously effective in enhancing the results of a well performed mini facelift. Dermal fillers such as, Perlane or Radiesse are also great place into the face at the same time as the mini facelift but, if you are already undergoing facial surgery, then fat is an abundant source of injectable filler that is cost effective and long lasting.
