What is Minimally Invasive Facial Plastic Surgery?

As a leader in the field of facial plastic surgery, Dr. Vartan Mardirossian has devoted a large portion of his career to pioneering and refining of minimally invasive procedures. These groundbreaking new techniques for improving skin tone, eliminating wrinkles and other unsightly signs of aging have helped revolutionize the plastic surgery specialty. Minimally invasive procedures usually require only small incisions around the scalp, ears, or mouth that typically heal in only a few days. Most patients experience minimal discomfort and bruising.

Minimally invasive facial plastic surgery is derived from the concept of segmental facial rejuvenation. Segmental rejuvenation divides the face into “embryological and anatomical zones of aging” which can be selectively targeted with specialized surgical techniques. These zones are usually defined as:

Upper thirdForehead and brows
Upper eyelids
Glabella (area between eyebrows)
Middle thirdLower eyelids
Lower thirdLips
Lower cheeks (jowls)

Using this concept, Dr. Mardirossian has developed specialized procedures that address a unique zone. These techniques provide stunning results almost immediately, usually without the need for general anesthesia or major surgery. These minimally invasive procedures can be completed using local anesthesia and/or twilight sleep, which reduces the risk of complications. Dissection of the soft tissue is limited to only the zones that require it and produces a great result with less surgical trauma.  Due to the rapid recovery period associated with these procedures, most patients can return to their usual activities within just a few days.
