What is a Mini facelift?
A mini facelift is a less invasive surgical procedure compared to a traditional facelift. It focuses on addressing signs of aging in the lower part of the face, particularly around the cheeks, jowls, and jawline. The procedure involves smaller incisions, usually along the hairline and around the ears. It aims to tighten the skin and improve facial contours, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Ideal for individuals with mild to moderate facial aging, a mini facelift offers a quicker recovery and less extensive surgery while still providing noticeable improvements in facial sagging and wrinkles.
