WHAT’S A MINI FACELIFT?
Last night my husband was telling me that his friend’s wife recently had a mini facelift. I’d never heard of one before and was wondering just how invasive it was in comparison to a regular facelift.
I do many mini-facelifts. The mini-facelift that I do is very effective in the right patient and it is significantly less surgery then a traditional facelift. Many of these procedures are done under local anesthesia in my office whereas a traditional facelift is done in the hospital under sedation or general anesthesia. The mini-facelift that I do works on the cheeks, jowls and neck. If a patient has a very heavy neck, a traditional facelift is a better procedure. If the issue is simply laxity of the cheeks, jowls and neck, a mini-facelift is an excellent procedure with very high patient satisfaction.
