What to Expect from the Mini Facelift/Awake Lift™

Although plastic surgery patients are known for their thorough research, common questions arise before elective surgery.

Before the Mini Facelift/Awake Lift™

To optimize your surgical experience, Dr. Barr may advise specific behavior modifications. Discontinue blood thinners for a minimum of two weeks before the procedure and avoid alcohol in the days leading up to your Mini Facelift/Awake Lift™. Following these guidelines will ensure a smoother process and better results.

During the Mini Facelift/Awake Lift™

With the Mini Facelift/Awake Lift™ you can experience a pain-free procedure. Our skilled plastic surgeon, Dr. Barr, will first administer injections of tumescent fluid containing lidocaine and epinephrine. To ensure utmost comfort, he may apply additional lidocaine to fully numb the surgical area. Once you are completely numbed and ready, our trained professionals will perform the Awake Lift™ to achieve your transformed appearance.

After the Awake Lift™

After undergoing an Awake Lift™, many patients can resume light household tasks the next day. However, most patients will need to take around two weeks off from work. To ensure optimal healing and recovery, adhere to your surgeon's post-surgery instructions and diligently take the prescribed post-surgery medications. Expect swelling and bruising in your face, and limit excessive head and jaw movements. A few weeks after surgery, you can gradually incorporate light exercise into your routine. Finally, after six weeks, you can resume all activities without any restrictions.

Mini Neck Lift | Palm Beach Plastic Surgery | T: 561-833-4122

Mini Neck Lift

Your Mini Neck Lift Will Be Completed During a Single Visit to Our West Palm Beach Location

During a Mini Neck Lift procedure, Dr. Fredric M. Barr, M.D., F.A.C.S., our West Palm Beach Board-certified plastic surgeon, makes small incisions in the skin around the neck area. These incisions enable Dr. Barr to reach and tighten the underlying muscles and tissues, resulting in a more lifted appearance for the neck and jawline. He also removes excess skin, for further enhanced results.

A Mini Neck Lift performed by Dr. Barr ensures your comfort with local anesthesia to numb the area and minimize and hide scarring with small, strategically placed incisions. 

The procedure takes place at our surgical facility, where our medical team will prep you for surgery. This effort could involve giving you medication to help you relax or connecting you to monitoring equipment to ensure your safety throughout the Mini Neck Lift procedure.

Once prepped for surgery, the plastic surgeon makes small incisions and begins tightening the muscles and tissues in your neck area, removing excess skin and closing the incisions with sutures or staples. Generally, the Mini Neck Lift procedure takes three to four hours to complete. You will NOT feel any pain during the procedure.

Before undergoing the Mini Necklift, you will consult Dr. Barr to discuss your goals.  During this consultation, he’ll evaluate your skin and neck muscles to determine whether the surgery suits you. This also serves to ensure realistic expectations from this minimally invasive surgical procedure.

Mini Neck Lift Recovery Time 

Following the Mini Neck Lift, you can expect swelling and bruising around the neck area. You may also experience some discomfort or pain, which you can manage with prescribed medication from your surgeon.

As an outpatient procedure, the Mini Neck Lift features a shorter recovery time than traditional facelift surgery. Following a Mini Neck Lift, most patients return to work within three to five days. Because your body needs enough time to heal properly, we recommend waiting 10 to 14 days before engaging in strenuous aerobic exercise, but you can resume walking and light exercise.

At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, we recognize and understand that every patient is unique. That’s why we take the time to discuss your options with you in more detail to ensure a safe and smooth recovery.

More About The Mini Neck Lift

We can combine the Mini Neck Lift with the Mini Face Lift and other Mini Lift procedures to minimize the signs of aging and deliver a more youthful appearance. A small incision is made under the chin, to sculpt fat, tighten muscles and remove skin to achieve a more youthful neck contour. 

Mini Neck Lift Cost vs. a Traditional Facelift 

The cost of a complete facelift starts at about $20,000. However, depending on the procedure’s complexity, the cost can escalate. Aside from the convenience of an outpatient procedure and a shorter recovery time, a Mini Neck Lift costs about half the price of a complete facelift. 

Furthermore, based on your genetics and health factors, the results last equally as long. With a Mini Neck Lift, there are no bandages or tubes; you can expect minimal discomfort and a quick recovery.

Mini Vertical Facelift

How a Mini Vertical Facelift Can Help You Defy The Aging Process

Aging signs can sneak up on you and cause a host of self-image issues. However, there are effective steps you can take to address these issues as they arise. A Mini Vertical Facelift is a much less invasive solution than the traditional facelifts with which you may be familiar.

If you have looked in the mirror recently and noticed advancing signs of aging such as excess skin under the chin or sagging in the cheek, jaw, or neck, you may be wondering what solutions are available. Perhaps you are exploring facelifts, but you have seen unnatural results, so you are interested in other options. At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Barr focuses on achieving a rejuvenated, natural look. Our Mini Vertical Facelift could be exactly what you are looking for — a healthier and less invasive procedure that addresses the root problems of age signs for long-lasting results in a faster turnaround time.

Mini vertical facelifts differ from traditional facelifts, which often focus on pulling the skin from multiple directions in a way that can sometimes lead to a look that appears stretched. A Mini Vertical Facelift from Dr. Barr at Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery can help to show a younger, more beautiful, and more familiar you once again.

Reasons to Choose a Mini Vertical Facelift

There are many benefits to a mini vertical facelift with Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery:

  • Dr. Barr subtly and effectively reduces signs of aging by treating the deeper layers of the face that bind your muscles (called the SMAS) for a healthy, natural, and refreshed look.
  • The procedure is minimally invasive, as compared to traditional facelifts.
  • Mini Vertical Facelifts only require local anesthesia and involve less downtime, allowing you to quickly return to your life with a more youthful appearance.
  • Contact us today to schedule a complimentary consultation and see if a Mini Vertical Facelift is right for you!

Noticeable Aging Signs in Your Face May Qualify You for a Mini Vertical Facelift

If you are beginning to show any of several common signs of aging in your face and neck, a Mini Vertical Facelift may be the solution for you. These aging signs may include sagging jowls, drooping cheeks, or loose skin on your neck.

We address these issues by lifting your facial tissues vertically, quickly restoring your youthful appearance. The Mini Vertical Facelift is often an ideal choice if you are looking for subtle yet effective results. Contact us to discuss the specific signs of aging you wish to address during your complimentary consultation.

What To Expect During Your Mini Vertical Facelift Procedure

A Mini Vertical Facelift only requires local anesthesia. An incision is made hidden in the hairline.

Next, we will use specialized instruments to carefully lift and reposition your facial muscles and tissues in a vertical direction. Dr. Barr will do this to achieve your visibly smoother jawline, cheeks, and temples.

Before suturing your incision with minimal impact to your skin behind your hairline, Dr. Barr will eliminate extra skin resulting from the procedure.

Envision the Benefits of a Mini Vertical Facelift

By lifting and reducing sagging skin and soft tissue around your jawline and cheeks, a Mini Vertical Facelift can give your face a sharper and more defined appearance. This procedure reduces signs of aging so you can present a more youthful, refreshed, and natural image.

For many, the more toned and contoured look they enjoy following a Mini Vertical Facelift enhances their self-esteem, self-image, and confidence. These are benefits you can now enjoy with less-invasive surgery and shorter recovery times. We will help you plan your next steps with a complimentary consultation!

Eyelid Lift

What Does a Mini Eyelid Lift Entail?

Experience the transformative power of the Mini Eyelid Lift procedure as it rejuvenates your appearance and restores a youthful, well-rested look to your eyes. With the guidance of your trusted West Palm Beach plastic surgeon, you can express your concerns and expectations, knowing he will hear and understand you, and ensure that the desired outcome aligns perfectly with your vision.

Your comfort and safety are of utmost importance, which is why you will explore anesthesia options that guarantee a comfortable and secure experience during the procedure.

However, the journey to optimal, lasting results doesn't end with the procedure. Our team recognizes that post-surgery care is urgent. We are here to support you every step of the way, from consultation to postoperative milestones, providing you with the information and support you need to achieve an enhanced, natural look. Trust our team to guide you through the process with expertise and compassion.

How Long Does It Take to Heal and See Results from an Eyelid Lift?

The healing time and results of a Mini Eyelid Lift can vary from person to person. For most patients, the recovery period for eyelid surgery ranges from one to four weeks. You will experience swelling and bruising, but very little discomfort for the first 7 to 10 days after the procedure, with no bandage applied in most situations. We recommend applying eyelid ointment for 5 to 7 days, using ice packs, and keeping their head elevated. Spend the first few days after eyelid surgery resting at home. Over the following week, your incisions will begin to heal, and you'll start to see improvements.

However, every individual's healing process differs. Consult a Board-certified plastic surgeon at Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery for personalized guidance regarding the healing time and expected results of a Mini Eyelid Lift procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions About the Mini Eyelid Lift/Blepharoplasty Eyelid Surgery

Is Eyelid Surgery Painful?

Many patients inquire about the level of pain involved in eyelid surgery. While you can expect some discomfort, a skilled and experienced surgeon like Dr. Barr will perform blepharoplasty with effective anesthesia to ensure minimal pain during the procedure.

What are the Risks and Complications of Eyelid Surgery?

Like any surgery, the patient must weigh the risks and complications, including infection, scarring, and temporary or permanent changes in vision. However, choosing a highly qualified and experienced West Palm Beach plastic surgeon reduces these risks tremendously.

How Long Do the Results of Eyelid Surgery Last?

A Mini Eyelid Lift results in a more youthful and refreshed appearance for many years. Inevitably, the natural aging process will affect this area as time moves on. 

Will an Eyelid Lift Affect My Vision?

Undergoing an Eyelid Lift at Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery in West Palm Beach, FL should not negatively impact your vision. The primary goal of blepharoplasty is to address concerns such as excess skin, bagginess, and drooping eyelids, while improving the appearance of the eyes.

While the procedure focuses on enhancing aesthetics, eyelid surgery can also have functional benefits in some cases. For example, if severe eyelid drooping affects your vision, an eyelid lift can help improve your field of vision. Discuss any concerns or potential impacts on vision with your West Palm Beach plastic surgeon during your consultation.

More About the Mini Eyelid Lift

At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, we can combine the Mini Eyelid Lift with other procedures. While specific combinations vary depending on individual needs and goals, patients commonly undergo a Mini Eyelid Lift in conjunction with other cosmetic surgery procedures, such as the Mini Face/Awake Lift™ or Mini Brow Lift for comprehensive rejuvenation and aesthetic results.

To determine the most suitable combination of procedures for your specific case, consult Dr. Barr, M.D., F.A.C.S., Board-certified plastic surgeon at Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery. He will evaluate your unique needs and goals, providing personalized recommendations and guidance regarding the combination of procedures that can help you achieve your desired outcome.

Ear Reshaping | Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery | West Palm Beach, FL

Ear Reshaping

Can Ear Reshaping Help Children Born with a Birth Defect?

A child's ears may protrude or feature other structural deformities due to a birth defect. This is a different issue that may also include loss of hearing and other face and body issues. Ear reshaping procedures such as otoplasty can help children born with certain types of ear deformities or birth defects by improving the appearance and function of the ears for a more balanced appearance.

Otoplasty can address common ear deformities like protruding ears, microtia (underdeveloped ears), anotia (complete absence of ears), and other structural abnormalities. In these cases, we usually perform reconstructive surgery for these congenital ear deformities at an earlier age, in multiple stages.

Schedule a Consultation with Our Patient Counselor at Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery for Otoplasty

For more than three decades, Board-certified Dr. Fredric M. Barr, M.D., F.A.C.S. has been helping women and men at Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery achieve naturally beautiful results. Dr. Barr believes if you can tell a patient has had plastic surgery, it is not necessarily a good result.

Our Faqs


If I am seeking to undergo a combination of procedures, will they be done together or consecutively? What is the timeline for multiple procedures?


The answer depends on multiple factors, including the specific combination of procedures, your recovery rates, your age and health status, and your behaviors or habits. More invasive surgeries typically require recovery time ranging between 6 and 12 weeks to 6 months, and surgeries to the same area of your body will also generally require recovery time between procedures.

However, if you are in good health and the combination of procedures in question will be performed on different parts of your body and are not especially invasive, a combination of procedures could potentially be approved together on a case-by-case basis. It is imperative that the combination of procedures does not compromise your healing, and your attention to prescribed pre-operation and recovery habits also plays a significant role. Schedule a consultation for an assessment and guidance regarding the procedures you are considering.


Will it be obvious that I “got work done” after my procedure?


While aging affects us all, there are steps we can take to put forth a more vibrant appearance. We seek to perform subtle adjustments to address imperfections and the wear of time while retaining your natural look. While you should notice an improvement, the glaring changes or distortions in appearance you are concerned about and may have seen from other surgeons’ work do not meet the standard of quality plastic and cosmetic surgery we perform in our office.

Dr. Frederic M. Barr is a board-certified Plastic & Cosmetic Surgeon with over 30 years of experience performing Plastic Surgery in South Florida. We enhance and refine your appearance according to your goals. Review our Gallery of Before & After Photos to see some examples of our work.


What does Breast Explant Surgery entail, and will my breasts be “back to normal” after the surgery?


For patients with Breast Implant Illness (BII), which can include allergy, auto-immune, and thyroid hormone issues, this has been an emerging topic with significant press coverage in recent years. Although numerous medical professionals have demonstrated varying responses to these women’s concerns, we believe in addressing these women’s experiences and symptoms. In response to this phenomenon, we have also chosen not to perform new breast implant surgeries. We perform Total Capsulectomy on patients with breast implants, which involves the removal of both the saline or silicone implant and the capsule around it.

Removal of the implants and surrounding scar tissue has been shown to improve women’s health concerning these symptoms. While some women choose no further procedure following Breast Explant Surgery, some patients elect to have a Mastopexy procedure that involves reshaping the breast tissue for a pleasant cosmetic breast appearance. We welcome your specific questions regarding these procedures and their anticipated effects for your situation. See our Breast Implant Explantation (Total Capsulectomy) page for more detailed information, including before-and-after photo examples.


Are injectables safe, and are some safer than others? What are the dangers, and how can I avoid them?


We only utilize injectables and safe procedures for our patients, though any procedure involves some degree of risk. Proper performance and the surgeon's skills and experience performing the procedure are vital factors affecting patients’ safety. At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, our surgeon is Board-Certified, with over 30 years of experience. We enforce a high standard to maintain safety for our clients and competitors. See our Injectable Procedures Overview for a list of injectable procedures and more information on each.


What options do you have for Reconstructive Surgery?


We perform Breast Reconstruction After Cancer, Hand Reconstruction, Nose Cancer Reconstruction, and Cleft Lip Repair.


Can I pursue financing options if my health insurance does not cover cosmetic or reconstructive surgeries?


We can address your specific procedure questions and a range of financing plans that include interest-free and long-term options during a consultation. Ask us about CareCredit, a healthcare credit card designed specifically for cosmetic or reconstructive procedures not covered by health insurance. The Alphaeon credit card is another option that offers flexible monthly payment options, and Prosper Healthcare Lending provides another means to pay. See our Plastic Surgery Financing Options page for more information.
