Are you considering a facelift to enhance your appearance? Maybe you desire a more youthful appearance and are looking for a way to get rid of wrinkles and sagging skin, but are hesitant to get a facelift due to the time involved with the recovery. If so, a mini facelift may be a good solution for you. So, how does a mini facelift differ from traditional facelift surgery? Read on to find out.

A mini facelift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that can be used to help reverse the signs of aging in the middle and lower regions of the face. It is perfect for tightening jowls, smoothing the neckline and adding definition to the jaw line and cheeks. The ideal candidate is a person around forty years of age or older who wants to look more youthful and rested without altering their appearance drastically.

A mini facelift has several benefits over traditional or classic facelift surgery. Unlike other facelift procedures, the mini facelift is customizable and can specifically address the needs and desires of each patient. It also involves fewer incisions and therefore produces less scarring. As a result, there is a quicker recovery time. In fact, most individuals can return to their normal routine in just weeks after mini facelift surgery. In many cases, individuals can return to work as soon as a few days after mini facelift surgery.

A mini facelift is a very effective cosmetic surgery procedure, however, it is not right for everyone. If you desire changes in the forehead or around the eyes, a mini facelift is not the right procedure for you. If you would like to get more information about mini facelift surgery or to find out if this type of facelift is suited to your needs, talk to a board-certified plastic surgeon in your local area.
