Dr. Chang has obtained an international reputation for performing the mini facelift procedure. His procedure videos, made for visiting surgeons, have received half a million views. ( see links below ). This is a procedure that Dr. Chang has adapted so that the majority of patients could choose to have it under oral sedation in his office in Loudoun, Virginia outside of Leesburg without the need for general anesthesia.
The purpose of the procedure is to treat lower facial aging. This includes:
1. Elevation of mild to moderate jowls
2. Provide a clean and smooth jawline
3. Elevate the mid-cheek to provide a better cheek mound and sweep
4. Some improvement of the upper neck
Most patients, by the time they reach their 40s and 50s, will have some element of facial laxity and skin excess. Very minimal cases can be treated by adding volume using facial fillers or a fat transfer. Some patients with very minimal laxity can be "lifted" by a small surgical procedure called a quick lift. Most patients, however, at this age will benefit more from a mini facelift which will more naturally lift up the falling areas while hiding the scars effectively in the temple and around the ear. And this can all be performed without the need for general surgery, minimal complications, and faster recovery times.
