Mini Facelift Surgery

A mini-face lift is a term used to describe any operation that is not a full face lift. There is no clear definition of what a mini-face lift is.

A face lift can be described as mini if it:

  1. Involves a quicker recovery than other techniques
  2. If it involves a shorter scar
  3. If the area under the skin is not frees as far as in a full facelift
  4. If materials such as threads, barbs or cones are used to hold the lifted tissue

If you are considering a mini-face lift it is important to realise that these techniques generally do not lift the facial tissue as much as a full face lift. They are usually used for people that:

  • Are too young for a full facelift
  • Want a very natural subtle rejuvenation
  • Do not want too long a recovery period

If you are considering a mini-face lift it is important that you understand exactly what the procedure involves and why it is being used on you. You should also ask to see at least 5 before and after pictures of people who have had the same procedure
