Are you interested in creating a more youthful appearance, but don’t want to undergo a traditional facelift? If yes, and you’re wondering if there is a minimally invasive facelift option, you’ll be happy to know that there is. Plastic surgeons can use different techniques to achieve facial rejuvenation, and a facelift can be performed using a less invasive method.
Not everyone needs to undergo a traditional facelift or is ready to do so, and there are facelift options that can provide good results. However, patients should be aware that these results are not as long lasting.
Is There a Minimally Invasive Facelift Option?
A mini-facelift is a minimally invasive facelift option that is designed to correct early signs of aging, particularly mild sagging in the cheeks, jawline, and neck. The procedure lifts and tightens sagging skin in the jowl area, and improves the appearance of nasolabial folds. A mini-facelift provides subtle, less dramatic results, but creates the refreshed look younger patients desire.
A mini-facelift can be done under general anesthesia, or local anesthesia with IV sedation. The incisions for surgery are made in front of and behind the ear, but are shorter than the incisions made for a traditional facelift. During a mini-facelift the surgeon will restructure and remove facial tissue, in order to improve the definition of the jawline and neck.
A mini-facelift is a specialized procedure that is ideal for younger patients that have early signs of aging, and don’t require a more extensive procedure.
