Mini Facelift Infographic
  1. A Mini Facelift is not as surgically extensive as a traditional full facelift, offering a less invasive options with discreet, minimal incisions.
  2. The word “mini” refers to a smaller incision and reduced undermining of the skin, often allowing for a speedier recover. However, because each patient is different, the actual length of the incision can vary for each individual depending on the amount and laxity of the skin.
  3. A Mini Facelift mainly addresses the lower face and jowls. The ideal candidate for a Mini Facelift are those who have excess jowl tissue and skin laxity, minimal facial aging and do not require extensive reconstruction in the neck area.
  4. In a Mini Facelift, the doctor may combine selected surgical procedures with appropriate non-surgical options, such as dermal fillers, fat grafting, and skin resurfacing.
  5. Like with any cosmetic surgery finding the right doctor is a crucial step. Choosing a board certified plastic surgeon and making an appointment for a consultation will help you decide which procedures are right for you!
