You’ve probably heard of a facelift and how they can help you look years younger. For younger patients or those with fewer signs of aging, there is another procedure that may better suit for those where a traditional facelift is not needed. If you have sagging or wrinkled skin in the neck and jowls, but aren’t a candidate for a traditional facelift, a mini facelift may be a more suitable option.
A mini facelift is a less invasive version of a facelift. It targets a smaller area of the face, focusing only on the neck and jowls. While a facelift may focus on more areas of the face in addition to the neck and jowls. The incision is smaller and scars less.
A mini facelift is best for people who have concerns about their facial appearance, but may not need a full facelift. They are younger than the average facelift patient, or their concern is purely in the neck and jowls.
They also come with significantly less risk and recovery time than a traditional facelift. Since a mini facelift is less invasive than a facelift, it means there is typically less risk for complications during or after surgery. The average recovery for a mini facelift is 5-7 days, which for any surgical procedure is remarkably quick.
