A mini facelift surgery like any surgical procedure comes with some risk. Dr. Santos uses many advanced surgical methods to reduce the risks of mini facelift surgery.

First off, the main risks of a mini facelift are the typical surgical risks of:

  • Scarring
  • Infection
  • Fluid collection
  • Skin death
  • Complications due to anesthesia
  • Pain
  • Unsatisfactory result

Dr. Santos minimizes many of these risks using modern methods, some of which he pioneered in the facial plastic surgery world. The first difference in a facelift by Dr. Santos is that he performs the majority of his mini facelift procedures under local anesthesia. This reduces the possible anesthesia risks and can lead to a more comfortable recovery.

Along with local anesthesia, Dr. Santos uses the smallest possible incision and hides it within the natural creases of the body. He also thoroughly screens facelift candidates thoroughly to ensure that the complication rate is low. 

Dr. Santos has decades of experience and has revolutionized the facial plastic surgery field. This makes him one of the best Seattle facelift surgeons.
