What you are describing is indeed a mini. It certainly can be done and could give you improvement especially if you are young and have minimal sag. There should be minimal pain, I agree. (more)

I had this done over ten years ago in Bangkok.. I had general anaesthetic. It cost less than you quoted but its a decade ago. I had a lot of pain with tightness up the back of my scalp. the scars do disappear completely in time . the discomfort lasted a few months. i was told to rub it well with a good massage oil once the wounds had healed.
