Weekend Face Lift Surgery - Chicago, Illinois

(Also known as mini face lift or short scar face lift or weekend face lift)

Your Personal Weekend Face Lift Surgery Consultation - Chicago, Illinois

During the initial mini face lift or weekend face lift consultation, Dr Speron will ask you to look in a mirror and point out exactly what you would like to see improved. Sometimes, patients may focus their attention on excess skin in the upper eyelids and not realize that sagging of their eyebrows contributes to this skin redundancy. You should be very frank in discussing anything about your appearance that bothers you, as well as what you hope to achieve with weekend face lift surgery. This will help Dr Speron to understand your expectations and determine whether they can realistically be achieved.

How will Dr Speron evaluate me for a short scar face lift or weekend face lift surgery?

In evaluating you for weekend face lift surgery, Dr Speron will assess the thickness, texture and elasticity of your skin, and the severity of wrinkles and folds. Your hairline will be examined to determine where incisions can be discreetly placed. All of these factors, as well as your bone structure and underlying tissues, will be considered in developing an individual surgical plan.

Dr Speron may discuss with you additional procedures that can be performed along with a weekend face lift in order to address all the concerns you have identified. For example, a weekend face lift is frequently combined with a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, nasal reshaping or skin treatments such as a fotofacial, chemical peel, dermabrasion or laser resurfacing.
