A mini face lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to reverse the signs of aging skin. A mini face lift is used to make the lower one third of the face look younger, rested, and refreshed. It can firm the lower facial skin, improve jaw line definition, and refine the neck-chin angle.
Mini face lifts are popular among people that are not quite ready for a full face lift but would benefit from facial rejuvenation. It is also used as a follow up procedure by people that have already had full face lifts. A mini face lift has shorter recovery time and the results can last for several years.
There are a few options for a mini face lift. You may choose to receive an anterior mini face lift, a posterior mini face lift, or both procedures. An anterior mini face lift is for the lower face. A posterior mini face lift is for the neck, jawline, and jowl area. After examining your skin and listening to your concerns, your doctor will help you select the most appropriate procedure to meet your expectations.
