What Is a Mini Facelift? 

A mini facelift, also known as a short scar facelift, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure designed to address early signs of aging in the lower face and neck. This procedure focuses on tightening sagging skin and underlying tissues, resulting in a rejuvenated and refreshed appearance. The incisions for a mini facelift are smaller than those for a traditional facelift, leading to reduced scarring and a quicker recovery time.

What are the Benefits of a Mini Facelift?

We’ve loved sharing the multitude of benefits of this procedure, which include: 

  • Improved definition and contour in the lower face and jawline
  • Reduced appearance of jowls and sagging skin
  • Minimally invasive with a shorter recovery time compared to a traditional facelift
  • Natural-looking results that enhance your youthful appearance
