What is a mini-facelift ?
The mini facelift surgery can treat mild to moderate skin sagging in the lower face and neck caused by natural aging. In most cases, a traditional face and neck lift is the optimal approach, which is why only a minority of patients.
Why should I choose the mini-facelift ?
Over time, tissues tend to sag, which affects the skin as well as underlying tissues. Jowls start to form, neck bands become noticeable and nasolabial folds are accentuated. The mini facelift acts as a face and neck lift, but offers subtle results.
What does the mini facelift do ?
The procedure doesn’t change the shape or the appearance of the face. Unlike the face and neck lift, only the skin is tightened, which is why the recovery is significantly shorter. That being said, patients can expect a noticeable and natural rejuvenation with no risk of a ‘pulled’ appearance of the face caused by excessive skin tightening. Facial fat grafting can be performed in combination with any type of facelift to address facial volume loss.
When should I request my mini facelift ?
