Who makes a good candidate for a mini facelift in Los Angeles?

Dr. Lee suggests that candidates for a mini facelift be of sound mind and body, with no major medical issues to contend with.

Patients should be non-smokers, with realistic expectations for their surgical results. In addition, the following criteria are suggested:


  • You feel self-conscious about the appearance of aging skin
  • You don’t yet require treatment of the neck area
  • You desire a quick recovery
  • You desire a low-risk procedure
  • You prefer local anesthesia to general anesthesia
  • You are ideally in your 40s or 50s

All sutures will be removed within about 5-7 days, and any discomfort can be well-controlled with prescription pain medications issued by Dr. Lee. Within one week you will be able to resume your normal activities, exercising once more in about two weeks.

Your scars will be nicely hidden behind your ears. Full aftercare instructions will be provided and you will come into the office for follow up visits to ensure your recovery is on track.
