Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Patrick K. Sullivan serves a worldwide clientele from his Rhode Island private practice. When patients come in for personal consultations for a facelift procedure, he asks that they bring in photographs of what they looked like at age 20 or 25. Bear in mind that nationally nearly 70 percent of patients undergoing facelifts are 55-years-old and above. That is not the same in Dr. Sullivan’s practice where the patients tend to be younger. He thus wants to be able to offer them more minimally invasive treatments with faster recovery times.

Dr. Sullivan’s focus on an artistic and natural restoration of the youthful face has led him to provide a number of patient-tailored facelift options, including his very latest, an extended multilayer mini-lift.

The extended mini-lift

The procedure is essentially an extended multilayer mini facelift that is entirely tailored to each patient’s unique concerns, skin conditions, and goals for the procedure. Dr. Sullivan’s mini-lift isn’t a full facelift yet is more powerful than what would typically be considered a regular mini facelift.

So it lies between a mini facelift and a facelift in terms of its intensity, making it ideal for patients between the ages of about 35 and 50 or, in other words, patients who are experiencing mild to moderate facial laxity, jowls, perioral mounds, very clearly defined nasolabial folds, and areas of facial deflation.

To this extended multilayer targeted mini-lift procedure, Dr. Sullivan can add upper and lower eyelid surgery, ideally placed micro fat injections, and other adjunct procedures that make the results more beneficial and appealing for the patient. All with hidden incisions. And quicker recovery times.

Facets of the extended mini-lift

Dr. Sullivan’s extended mini-lift includes some or all of the following, again depending on what the patient in question desires and needs in order to look and feel more youthful naturally.

A patient’s perspective

“I couldn’t be happier with my experience from beginning to end; everything from the house calls to following up with me daily. There wasn’t a day that I didn’t speak with Dr. Sullivan. He’s very thorough, he’s very conscientious and I couldn’t be more thrilled with my results.”

Our virtual web consultations can be done right in the comfort of your own home, all you need is a secure internet connection and a computer, tablet or smartphone! We have 5 main steps we aim to accomplish with the virtual consultation:

  1. We listen to each patient carefully to establish exactly what it is they are looking for.
  2. We will give instructions to each patient on the specific pictures we will need from them as part of the virtual consultation. We send out sample pictures of just what we need, and the patient can send back their pictures that replicate this.
  3. We have chosen specific before and after photos of Dr Sullivan’s patients in order to show the patients what a prospective patient can expect (note, individual results will vary).
  4. We plan out and together come up with what we think is going to be a superb treatment plan for them.
  5. Finally, we find a time that is best for them that we can get this done.
