Why Choose Dr. Toft

Dr. Toft is certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and he dedicates 100% of his expertise to facial procedures. This dedication helps him keep up with the latest techniques, which he uses to achieve the following for minilift patients:

- Correct the drooping appearance caused by sagging jowls
- Smooth folds around the mouth, nose and cheeks
- Tighten underlying muscles for long-lasting results
- Enhance the jawline
- Restore high cheek bones

Dr. Toft only recommends procedures that will enhance a person's appearance and work with their lifestyle. Minilifts in Sacramento are marketed under various names such as the "weekend lift," but these minilifts often provide minimal results. In contrast, Dr. Toft's minilift provides a comprehensive lift with natural and lasting results.

Sometimes, he will recommend combining procedures to achieve the desired look. Popular choices to combine with a minilift are a browlift, eyelid surgery or non-surgical options such as BOTOX® Cosmetic. Dr. Toft will work with you to create a plan to combine procedures that complement your individual facial structure.

The Procedure

As the name implies, a minilift requires smaller incisions, less surgery time and a shorter recovery period. Because he specializes in facial cosmetic surgery, Dr. Toft has extensive experience and training in the best ways to hide the tiny scars within the hairline and along natural folds and creases.

Using a well hidden incision, he is able to tighten underlying muscles and remove excess skin. Mini lifts are perfect for patients who may not be ready for a full facelift but who want to refresh their appearance. Dr. Toft will customize the procedure to ensure that all of your concerns are addressed during surgery.

Your Recovery

One of the benefits of a mini facelift in Sacramento is the short recovery period. Patients typically need pain medication for only 2 or 3 days. You should feel fine at the end of the first week and be able to cover any bruising with makeup after the second week. Dr. Toft's minilift patients are usually free of bruising and look terrific at 3 weeks.

Projected Results

Patients can expect to enjoy the benefits of the procedure for at least 10 years, depending on the extent of the surgery. Mini lift patients will have only minimal signs of surgery, and their skin will be smoother, creating a more youthful appearance.

Choosing the right approach to facial rejuvenation can be a challenge, so Dr. Toft recommends you meet with him for a private consultation. He will go over your options for enhancing your appearance, while paying close attention to any concerns you may have.
