The Micro-Mini Lift

Discover the amazing, age-defying benefits of Dr. Michael Godin’s patented Micro-Mini Lift®, perfect for minimizing the first visible signs of aging on the lower face!

Micro-Mini Lift® Before & After

The Micro-Mini Lift® is a minimally-invasive facelift ideal for patients in their 40s and 50s who are beginning to notice tell-tale signs of aging around their jawline and neck, but who are not yet ready for a full facelift. This advanced modification of the traditional full facelift is designed to minimize the appearance of jowling, wrinkles, and drooping for patients showing small amounts of loose, excess skin around the jaw and neck.

Developed and patented by the highly-acclaimed Dr. Michael Godin, double Board certified Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon with private surgical practices in Richmond, Virginia and Los Angeles, California, the Micro-Mini Lift® is less invasive than a full facelift, yet still delivers powerful, highly effective rejuvenation to the lower face and neck.*

The Micro-Mini Lift® Difference

  • A powerful, minimally-invasive facial rejuvenation option
  • Creates a firmer, more sculpted jawline
  • Softens nasolabial folds
  • Minimizes lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth
  • Improves the appearance of droopiness around the chin and neck
  • Customized to meet each patient’s unique anatomy and aesthetic goals
  • Less risk of large, visible scars
  • Requires a recovery period of only a week, or even less
  • Ideal for patients in their 40s and early 50s

The Patented Micro-Mini Lift® Technique

The secret behind Dr. Godin’s patented Micro-Mini Lift® technique is the use of very short incisions that, in most cases, can be carefully concealed around the natural folds of the ears. Every Micro-Mini Lift® is customized to harmonize with the patient’s unique anatomy, eliminating excess fat, reshaping the facial musculature, and lifting the tissues of the jawline and neck. For patients requiring a slightly deeper lift, Dr. Godin may tighten, reposition, or even partially remove the deeper layers of tissue. In each case, Dr. Godin’s goal is to create sculpted and youthful contours around the jawline and neck that blend and enhance the natural curvatures of the face!
