Mini faceli surgery is one of the most common types of faceli surgery.
It addresses wrinkles and sagging skin on the lower third of the face using small incisions placed around the ears. It restores definition to the chin by removing excess tissue and artfully tightening remaining tissue.

Mini faceli surgery can provide some physical and emotional benefits;

  • Minimal scarring – incisions are concealed in your natural face contours and hairline
  • Minimal side effects – less swelling and bruising than a more extensive faceli
  • Conservative treatment – addresses the issues of the lower face area and neck
  • No general anaesthetic – can be done using a local anaesthetic mitigating the risks associated with a GA and you will be able to go home immediately a er the procedure


Blepharoplasty – can address issues such as excess eyelid skin and tired looking eyes giving you a fresher appearance. However, there are some conditions that prohibit this type of surgery.

Having any kind of plastic surgery is a big step and worth thinking about carefully. It is natural to feel a bit anxious. You will want to know what can be achieved, what is involved and what the possible outcomes and risks are.
If the mention of surgery seems too much, treatment with the A|C|C|O|R® Cosmetic Corrector is the gentle alternative to skin tightening surgery. The pen creates an ionised plasma arc which projects onto the skin surface. The plasma arc instantly vaporises a point of skin at the required position, thereby tightening the immediate surrounding area.

As with all treatments at TAC, first you will need to be assessed. This is an opportunity to discuss what the goals for your appearance are. Mr Athanassopoulos, Plastic Surgeon says ‘it is a good idea to think about specific things you would like to improve, for example bumps, wrinkles or drooping, rather than just having a broad dislike of yourself. Any previous treatments or injuries to the area are important, as is your past medical history.

All of this information will help work out what is best for your appearance, concerns and health.’
As with any procedure there is not a one fit suits all solution. There may be one or more operations or treatments that could help. Each will have pros and cons and these need to be considered honestly. Any surgery will have a recovery period, leave some scars and have some risk of side effects or complications. Good care will help to minimise these but they cannot be eliminated. The risks will have to be acceptable to you.

It is also important to get a realistic picture of what your result might be. Whilst a good improvement in specific areas of concern is reasonable, ‘perfection’ is very difficult to achieve. Before and a er photographs can be very helpful. There may also be specific information leaflets and websites that can help. A second consultation is usually a good idea before proceeding as it’s common to think of questions later on.

Overall, there is a lot to take in.
To make the best decision you need advice from someone appropriately trained, sympathetic, honest and skilled and most importantly who you feel comfortable and confident with.
