Have you noticed a slight sagging of skin and tissue in your lower face and neck? Lost skin and tissue elasticity, combined with gravity, are responsible for the aging process that is impossible to stop completely. A mini facelift is the first procedure used to address sagging in the jowls and neck. It can greatly improve the youthfulness of the neck, chin, jawline and lower face.
At City Facial Plastics, our esteemed facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Gary Linkov, uses advanced surgical techniques for our facelift procedures. The methods used in our traditional facelift are similar to the ones in a mini facelift. However, a mini facelift is done on a smaller scale with less invasive procedures. Dr. Linkov’s impressive skill and artistry can restore definition and firmness to the lower face. Those experiencing the early stages of age-related sagging can greatly benefit from a mini facelift procedure.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Mini Facelift?
Facelifts are often not a one-time procedure. More and more people are opting to start combatting aging issues earlier before a traditional facelift is needed. Candidates for a mini facelift have slight to moderate sagging in the lower cheeks, jowls and neck. They may have a double chin beginning to form. By choosing to have a mini facelift performed, these aging issues can be slowed down. A full facelift may be delayed by several years while retaining a more youthful appearance.
A mini facelift will still have small incisions that are used to access and elevate the skin and tissues. However, these are smaller incisions, and there is less trauma to the tissues. The recovery time is also shorter. Some versions of the mini facelift can even be a weekend procedure with minimal downtime required.
