A mini facelift, a less invasive version of the traditional facelift, can bring back a decades worth of youth to your face. However, many do not know exactly what parts of the face a mini facelift will treat. While it is true that a mini facelift can contribute to whole face rejuvenation, a mini facelift does not directly address concerns above the lower third of the face.
The mini facelift performed by Dr. Santos will directly affect the jaw, chin, neck, and jowls. This can lead to some minor changes in the midface due to changes in skin position and tightening of the muscles. If you choose to combine a CO2 laser resurfacing procedure with your facelift, this will provide total facial rejuvenation.
If your concerns mainly focus on your cheeks or brow, other procedures may suit you better. Or, you may find benefit in combining other procedures with a mini facelift. For example, many patients experience sagging of the jowls and the brow. A mini facelift and brow lift would adequately address these issues.
Dr. Santos can determine if a mini facelift can benefit you and achieve your cosmetic goals. In a consultation with Dr. Santos, he will review your questions, medical history, and physically examine the area to determine if you are a good candidate for a mini facelift.
