Short Scar Facelift

Short Scar Facelift | Facial Plastic Surgery | Chantilly | RestonIntroducing the Dr. V Mini-Lift!

Dr. V (Dr. Trang Thuy Vo-Nguyen) at The Virginia Institute for Surgical Arts is very pleased to introduce the Dr. V Mini-Lift, a less invasive, cost effective surgical rejuvenation option ideal for preserving and even enhancing your fresh, youthful appearance!

The Dr. V Mini-Lift is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the appearance of jowling and other fine lines and wrinkles on the lower third of the face and the upper third of the neck, soften the nasolabial folds, and tighten and sculpt the cheeks and jawline. Less invasive than a traditional full facelift, the Dr. V Mini-Lift is perfect for individuals in their 30s, 40s, and 50s who are concerned about the first visible signs of aging around the lower face. The Dr. V Mini-Lift can even (temporarily) slow down the development of additional signs of aging, preserving your youthful visage for years to come!*

At The Virginia Institute for Surgical Arts, located in Chantilly, Virginia, Dr. Trang Thuy Vo-Nguyen, (known as “Dr. V” to her patients) understands the complicated science behind the aging process, and has developed her own novel approach to the “short scar facelift” for patients seeking a less invasive, yet still highly effective alternative to a full facelift.   

Benefits of the Dr. V Mini-Lift:

  • Offers powerful facial rejuvenation for individuals who are not yet ready for a full facelift
  • Ideal for patients seeking to refresh or improve a prior facelift procedure
  • Delivers powerful results with less risk of complications and less recovery time than full facelift
  • Does not require general anesthesia; can be completed with local anesthesia and oral sedation
  • Can typically be completed in about an hour, depending on each patient’s specific surgical plan
  • Highly customizable: can be combined with multiple surgical or non-surgical treatments, including neck liposuction, eyelid lift surgery, or reducing the “turkey neck”, for optimal results!


The Surgical Technique Behind the Dr. V Mini-Lift

Unlike a full facelift which requires long scars along the hairline and near the ears (which can sometimes involve hair loss and large, visible scars), the Dr. V Mini-Lift utilizes small, easily concealed incisions about one-third the length of traditional facelift incisions. For most Mini-Lifts, Dr. V makes several curved incisions located around the ear, minimizing long-term visible scarring. Dr. V then removes excess fat, reshapes the facial musculature, and lifts the tissues of the lower face and upper third of the neck. The result: smooth, youthfully lifted facial contours for a refreshed, natural appearance!
