Everyone ages at a different rate, and many of our patients in their thirties, forties, and fifties are not ready for a full facelift. One alternative that can offer beautiful, natural-looking results with a less dramatic approach is the mid or mini-facelift. This procedure is designed to lift fat, skin, and tissue that have begun to sag in the mid-facial area and reposition them to a higher, more youthful location. As a result, greater contouring of the cheeks, jawline, and mid-facial region can occur, often reducing skin laxity and the appearance of jowls. Furthermore, liposuction can be combined with mid-facelift surgery to enhance the neck and jawline. Mid-facelift surgery from our practice usually requires less downtime than a full facelift, and individuals seeking facial rejuvenation with a shorter recovery period may benefit from this treatment.
Can it be combined with other procedures?
Mid & Mini Facelifts are less invasive alternatives to a traditional facelift that can help you feel more confident in the way you look. As noted above, the mid-facelift is often performed in conjunction with liposuction of the neck as an alternative to the full facelift procedure. The mini facelift procedure can also be combined with other facial plastic surgery procedures for a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Patients can complement their mid-facelift procedure with nose surgery, brow lift, eyelid surgery, laser skin resurfacing, or microdermabrasion.
