A mini facelift is a procedure to address early signs of facial aging. Dr. Kuldeep Singh offers a mini facelift in Minneapolis to patients seeking subtle facial rejuvenation. This technique provides an opportunity to reverse signs of aging without extensive downtime.

Reverse Mild to Moderate
Signs of Facial Aging

A mini facelift, often referred to as a “weekend facelift” or “mini lift,” is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure aimed at revitalizing the appearance of the face. Unlike a full facelift, which involves more extensive surgery, the mini facelift is a more targeted approach designed to address early signs of aging, such as mild to moderate skin sagging and wrinkles. During a mini facelift, Dr. Singh makes small incisions around the ears and possibly under the chin. Through these incisions, he can tighten the underlying facial muscles and remove excess skin, creating a smoother, more youthful look. This procedure is particularly suitable for individuals who desire a subtle enhancement without the extensive downtime and recovery associated with traditional facelift surgery. It offers a more refreshed appearance, allowing patients to return to regular activities within a few days.

Your Mini Facelift Experience


During your mini facelift consultation, you will meet with Dr. Singh to discuss your aesthetic goals and assess your candidacy for the procedure. He will examine your facial structure, skin condition, and any specific concerns you have about aging. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions, and together, you’ll create a personalized treatment plan. This ensures you’re well-informed and comfortable with the mini facelift process before moving forward.


Dr. Singh will start by administering local anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Then, small incisions will be made around your ears and possibly under your chin. Through these incisions, Dr. Singh will tighten the underlying facial tissues and remove excess skin. The surgery generally takes an hour or two, depending on the extent of correction needed. Afterward, you’ll be monitored in the recovery area before being released to go home.


In the days immediately after a mini facelift in Minneapolis, you may experience swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort. Dr. Singh may prescribe pain medication to manage any discomfort. It’s crucial to follow post-operative instructions, including keeping your head elevated and avoiding strenuous activities. Most patients can return to work and resume light activities within a few days, but strenuous workouts should be avoided for a few weeks. Over the next weeks, as swelling continues to subside, you’ll notice the full effects of your mini facelift.

Mini Facelift FAQs

Who is a suitable candidate for a mini facelift?

The right candidates for a mini facelift in Minneapolis are individuals with mild to moderate facial aging, including sagging skin and wrinkles, who desire a subtle improvement in appearance without a full facelift or weeks of downtime.

Is the mini facelift procedure painful?

During the procedure, you’ll be under local anesthesia, which numbs the treated area, making it relatively painless. Some discomfort and swelling can be expected during the recovery phase, but pain can be managed with prescribed medications.

Will the results of a mini facelift look natural?

A mini facelift provides subtle, natural-looking results. Skilled surgeons like Dr. Singh enhance your appearance subtly, avoiding an overdone or “pulled” look.

Can a mini facelift be combined with other procedures?

Yes, a mini facelift can be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or brow lift, for a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Dr. Singh will evaluate your facial skin and signs of aging to recommend the appropriate procedures.

Is there a specific age range for getting a mini facelift?

Mini facelifts are typically performed on individuals in their early 40s to 50s, but age is not the only factor. The severity of aging signs and individual goals play a more significant role.

Can I wear makeup after a mini facelift?

You should avoid wearing makeup on or near the incision sites until your surgeon gives you the green light after a mini facelift in Minneapolis. Typically, this is around one week after the procedure to ensure proper healing.
