If your face is beginning to show the signs of age, then a mini-facelift is a wonderful way to rejuvenate it. Physicians in Miami recommended a mini-facelift for patients that have significant aging in the lower half of the face, specifically the area between the cheeks and the jawline.
More about the Mini facelift
A mini facelift can improve droopy jowls and sagging cheeks. It can also smooth any folds you may have around the corner of the mouth, as well as nasolabial folds (smile lines), and marionette lines. After a mini facelift, the jawline will be noticeable sleeker and there will also be an improvement in the facial shape. The effects generally last between 3 to 5 years.
When compared to a full facelift, a mini-facelift is less invasive. Although it is focused on the lower half of the face, it has a limited effect on problems such as sagging neck skin. In addition, it is not meant to correct facial aging in the upper part of the face, such as on the forehead and around the eyes.
Ideal candidate for a mini-facelift: The ideal candidate for the mini-facelift should be someone between 30-40 years old, who has early signs of aging, and wants to restore a more youthful appearance.
Advantages of a mini facelift
A mini-facelift is beneficial because of the shorter recovery time. Most patients can be up and about in a couple of days. It is therefore more suitable for busy persons who cannot afford weeks of down time. In addition, there is less scarring associated with the mini-facelift, as the incision is shorter.
