Facelifts are the gold standard in facial rejuvenation. The conventional facelift tightens and lifts the upper neck, jawline, jowls and lower face for a more youthful appearance. While effective, not everyone needs a full facelift to improve the firmness of the skin and tissue. A mini facelift can adjust the skin in the earlier stages of aging with smaller incisions and a quicker recovery. The pēkomd® cosmetic surgery and rejuvenation center offers mini facility surgery at our clinic in Toledo, OH.
What is a mini facelift? Also called a weekend facelift, the mini version of this anti-aging procedure is less invasive than the full facelift. It is designed for patients that may be in their late thirties, forties or even early fifties that are experiencing slight laxity in their neck and jowls. The definition along their jawline may be noticeably changing, with more lines around the nose and mouth. Removing a small amount of skin while elevating the upper neck and lower face tissue can restore a firm jawline while diminishing sagging and facial lines.
Is a Mini Facelift Right for You?
There are variations on most cosmetic surgery procedures. Tummy tucks come in a variety of options, as do facelifts. For facial rejuvenation, the top tier for excess and sagging skin and tissue is a full facelift, often a deep plane facelift that elevates both the skin and muscle. On the other end of the spectrum is the mini facelift or a non-surgical facelift that are designed for the first signs of aging.
You may be a good candidate for a mini facelift if you still have some skin elasticity, but you are experiencing some lines and mild sagging around the jowls, jaw and upper neck. This procedure can slow the aging process and delay the time when a full facelift surgery, with longer incisions and recovery time, is needed.
