When you hear the term “facelift,” you most likely think of the full, traditional treatment that has been used for decades to address sagging and wrinkles across the entire face. However, there is a surgical procedure that is far simpler than the traditional facelift is, and that is well-loved by many of our clients. It is called the mini facelift because it provides a small part of what the traditional facelift does. However, this is often exactly what our clients need. Learn more about mini facelifts to determine if this smaller procedure is right for you.
Learn More About A Mini Facelift
A mini facelift treats only the lower portion of the face rather than the entire face as the traditional facelift does. The lower part of the face, especially the areas around your cheeks, chin, and jowls, are the most prone to sagging. It does not provide any help for the eyes or forehead.
Benefits to Mini Facelift Procedures
The benefits of a mini facelift are numerous. Not only will you have a smoother lower face, but also you will experience amazing results without as many side effects as you would with a traditional facelift. Your surgery time will be shorter, you will have less scarring, and you will not require as much anesthesia. This can cut down on many of the risks associated with surgery.
However, the main reason why our clients love mini facelifts is that they provide great results with a minimum of recovery time needed. The mini facelift is often called the weekend facelift for good reason. Those having this surgery performed on a Thursday or Friday can often be back at work by the next Monday.
