If you’d like to rejuvenate your face, a facelift may be the option for you. But not all facelifts are the same. A facelift can be customized to match your specific needs, so some people can benefit from a mini-facelift, while others may require a full facelift. But how are they different, and what procedures are part of a full facelift.
Mini-facelift vs Full facelift
A mini-facelift is ideal for people that need to address facial aging in specific areas, such as the cheeks and jowls. A full facelift is a more extensive procedure that reshapes the entire face and neck.
What procedures are part of a full facelift?
A full-facelift covers the rejuvenation of the brow, eyes, mid-face, and neck. It will significantly tighten the skin, and also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
During a full facelift the surgeon will lift the brow area to minimize the appearance of forehead wrinkles and frown lines. More recently, this has been done with the help of a fiber optic camera known as anendoscope, which allows the surgeon to use fewer incisions to perform the procedure.
The mid-face area is also treated during a full-facelift, as the cheeks and jowls are tightened and lifted.
The neck is the other area targeted with a full-facelift. The surgeon will remove any excess fat and tighten loose skin and muscles, in order to give the neck a firmer, more defined appearance.
