The American Society of Plastic Surgeons revealed that facelifts were the fifth most popular cosmetic surgery procedure. It’s become a go-to surgery people get as they grow older, with promising results that correct saggy skin and create a more youthful appearance.
Although results from facelifts are desirable, it’s an invasive surgery that some people want to avoid. Instead, you might want to consider a mini facelift. Before booking a consultation with a surgeon, here’s what you need to know about mini facelifts.
What Is a Mini Facelift?
A mini facelift is a procedure that can reduce signs of aging in the face. This surgical procedure aims to lift sagging cheeks and jawline skin to achieve a more youthful appearance. Surgeons create small incisions to lift your skin upwards, allowing them to tighten underlying tissue and muscle. They also remove excess skin.
Keep in mind that a mini facelift does not typically directly address the neck. Instead, it usually achieves three main goals:
- Elevates the jowls.
- Elevates descended cheek fat.
- Smooths the folds in the corners of the mouth.
