Thanks for posting the before photos. As I stated earlier you might have NOT been a good candidate for a mini FL/NL. And your stated refusal to do a full FL/NL is noted. Than it is on the chosen PS to have explained to you IN DETAIL the risks involved is these "short cut" FL lifting options. Unfortunately, either you did not have these explained to your understanding or they were never expounded upon before you had the mini FL/NL surgery. Another causal possibility is that the mini FL/NL was done poorly without the use of the redrawing vectors to avoid the "nike" look. Either way you still are quite early in the healing phase and I hope the swelling when it resides will correct the issue some. If after 3 months you are still dis satisfied the possibility of a redo can be entertained. BTW a recent article in the PS journal on early secondary facelifting is a good read (vol 130,# 6, Dec 2012, pg 1305) . In that article early secondary Fling is indicated, " Even in the hands of a skilled surgeon....This particularly true of the perioral and/or central neck region, which are prone to exhibit residual changes and recurrences in patients with significant laxity and poor elasticity of facial soft tissues."
