Objective: This paper aims to study the clinical effect of mini facelift in patients undergoing facial plastic surgery. Methods: The study period was from January 2021 to January 2023. One hundred cases were selected from patients with facial plastic surgery at our hospital. They were divided according to the two-color ball method into control group and study group. 50 cases in the control group underwent routine major facelift and skin flap surgery, while 50 patients in the study group underwent mini facelift surgery. The items to be compared between the two groups were clinical effects, psychological conditions, and satisfaction. Results: Based on the results, it was determined that the study group had shorter operation time and swelling period than the control group, and the difference between the groups was significant, P < 0.05. By comparing the Hamilton Anxiety Scale (HAM-A) score and the Hamilton Depression Scale (HAM-D) score, no preoperative symptoms were found in the two groups (P > 0.05). After surgery, the two scores in the study group decreased, and the difference between the study group and the control group can be expressed by P < 0.05. Moreover, it was determined that the study group had higher satisfaction than the control group, and there is a significant difference between them, P < 0.05. Conclusion: The application of mini facelift in facial plastic surgery can shorten the operation time and swelling period, improve satisfaction, and relieve negative emotions, hence it is suitable for comprehensive clinical application.
