The different between Mini Facelift and the traditional Facelift are four factors:

  • Shorter Incisions
  • Limited dissection (less areas are operated on)
  • Shorter surgical time.
  • Shorter recovery time

Am I A Good Candidate for MiniLift or Mini-Face Lift?

The Mini Facelift, when performed by Dr. Zoumalan, is still a deep-plane approach that addresses the soft tissue in an anatomically correct approach. This is to say that the tissues are pulled naturally, which produces a result that looks and moves naturally.

Dr. Zoumalan prefers to perform the Mini-lift on patients if possible. The ideal patient for a Mini Facelift is the younger facelift patient with mild to moderate tissue looseness. For those with more heavy tissue and severe facial and neck aging, the traditional Facelift approach is more appropriate.

Mini Facelift Example

This is a woman in her 60’s who underwent full facial rejuvenation. She underwent minimally invasive Facelift, Endoscopic Browlift, and full face CO2 laser by Dr. Richard Zoumalan. Dr. Christopher Zoumalan, an Oculoplastic Surgeon, performed upper and lower lid Blepharoplasty. The brothers (Drs. Richard and Chris) are the only surgeons in the world who regularly perform this surgery together as a super-specialized duo.

The Consultation

During your consultation, Dr. Zoumalan will want to get to know you as a complete person and understand your surgical goals. Whether your areas of concern are excess skin, sagging muscle or excess fat, Dr. Zoumalan will customize your surgical plan to address and resolve these concerns.

The Surgery

During your surgery, Dr. Zoumalan will meticulously perform your lift while you are under the care of experienced anesthesiologists at a Beverly Hills surgical center which has the highest level of accreditation and provides unparalleled level of care.

After surgery, we ask that you stay overnight at with a professional nurse who will care for you for at least one night. We will help coordinate this.

  • I was injured on January 7, 2012 in a mo-ped/scooter accident in Cozumel, Mexico. My entire body head to toe (literally) endured horrendous road rash, my nose broke & plenty more. The level of care I received from dr Zoumalan & his entire office was/is truly indescribable but I shall try!

  • It’s been a year since my septoplasty and rhinoplasty and I am extremely happy with my results.Not only has my breathing dramatically improved, I am sleeping better than ever. I feel healthier and it has significantly changed my exercise routine. I can definitely push myself harder and my workouts are longer and more efficient. Best part is I don’t get that winded feeling or stuffy or runny nose while running. I didn’t realize how many aspects of my life would change after the surgery.

  • I had a Face and Neck Lift on December 3rd, 2014. Dr. Zoumalan does excellent work! He is very thorough in explaining the procedure, and has an excellent bedside manner. I am so happy with my result. I would highly recommend Dr. Zoumalan.

  • So when I met with Richard Zoumalan, I gave him a picture of me when I was 42, and I said, “That’s what I want. Is that possible?” And he said, “Yes!” He explained what he’d do, and how he would do it. I had surgery less than a month ago, and amazingly, I look almost exactly like me, only about 25 years younger.
