A mini-facelift, intended to target the neck and lower two-thirds of the face, repositions the skin to remove sagginess and wrinkling. Results are quickly evident and natural, revealing smoother, more youthful facial contours and skin. Many mini-facelift patients are in the early stages of visible aging or seeking enhancement of a previously performed facelift.
Mini-facelifts are different from a full facelift as they do not target the eye area. Comparable to the S-Lift method, the mini-facelift is especially good for the sagging skin around the frown lines called the nasolabial folds. If you are otherwise happy with how your eyes and forehead look, but feel like you look older around the mouth, the mini-facelift or S-Lift methods could be a viable option. During your consultation, ask the surgeon what he or she would recommend based on your age and the extent of your excess skin.
