A mini-facelift has smaller incisions, less downtime, and a slimmer price tag than a traditional facelift. So, what’s the catch with this less-invasive alternative? Because incisions are smaller, your surgeon is able to correct fewer facial issues. The procedure typically entails adjusting fat pockets, repositioning muscles, and removing excess skin in a small section of the face. A mini-facelift can have a lifespan of up to 5-years.
Patients seeking to combat early signs of aging in the mid or lower face may want to consider a mini-facelift. A mini-lift can also be performed as a touch-up procedure years after a full lift.
The best way to determine what’s right for you is through an in-person consultation. Your surgeon will complete a full facial examination and talk to you about your end-goals. Based on this information, they’ll create a custom plan to help you achieve your desired results. Your procedure can be paired with a forehead lift, blepharoplasty, or fat transfer for more dramatic results.
