What Is a Mini Facelift?A mini facelift focuses on the more common concerns of skin laxity in the cheeks and jawline. While the results are more subtle than those of a traditional facelift, a mini facelift procedure still dramatically improves the loose skin and signs of aging that affect the middle and lower part of the face. Often referred to as a “weekend facelift,” a mini facelift surgery requires fewer incisions and less downtime than a full facelift.
What Skin Concerns Can a Mini Facelift Address?Any surgical procedure Dr. Kaniff performs is customized to each patient, addressing their specific skin concerns and needs. Some of the signs of aging a mini facelift can resolve include:
- Skin laxity around the mouth
- Loose skin in the lower face and neck that creates jowls
- Marionette lines at the corners of the mouth
- Poor jawline definition
- Vertical bands around the neck
