"Dr. Michael Stephanides, who founded and oversees Stephanides Plastic Surgery, a Nashville plastic surgeons group, provides those in the area with a wide range of services, including short scar facelift surgery. Dr. Stephanides, who also performs full facelift surgery, works with each patient to carefully customize their treatment and ensure they get the results they desire."
In Nashville, Tennessee, Dr. Michael Stephanides is busy providing his facelift patients with individualized consultations and customized care. For the acclaimed Nashville plastic surgeon, who has developed numerous computerized systems for the medical field, each facelift patient is unique in their needs and what they want from the procedure.
“At Stephanides Plastic Surgery,” the doctor observed, “we offer full Nashville facelift surgery as well as short scar facelifts. Short scar has become popular for many reasons. First, it’s much less invasive and complicated than full facelift surgery. It’s appropriate for younger patients who have not seen significant changes in their face and neck.”
The short scar or mini Nashville facelift takes from 3 to 4 hours and can be done under local sedation. The procedure involves removing loose skin, improving the look of the jowls and some muscle tightening. The incisions are made in the same area as those used in a traditional facelift but they are shorter. The amount of skin lifted is minimal and the muscle work done is much less than in the longer, more involved full facelift.
“This mini facelift,” said the doctor, “takes about half the time as a full facelift and the recovery time is also about half as long. It’s become popular as of late, allowing those who want to erase or mitigate the effects of early aging to do so fairly easily. Still,” Dr. Stephanides added, “it is surgery and surgery is always serious business. I take the same type of care with the short scar facelift as I do with the full or any other type of surgery. It’s essential that the patient be matched with the right type of procedure. Without doing so your chances of success are greatly minimized.”
