Mini facelifts, also referred to as Weekend Facelift, Quick Lift, or Lifestyle Lift, can provide modest improvement in facial aging changes, providing some tightening in the cheeks, along the jawline, and in the neck.
The incisions are shorter, the cost less, the results more modest, and the duration of the improvement less enduring. For individuals with early aging changes, the operation may be useful and the recovery fast.
If a patient has more pronounced sagging of the neck and prominent jowls, then a traditional face and Necklift will give a better result.
Aging changes often will also affect the entire face, and combining face and Neck lift with Forehead lift, upper and lower Eyelid surgery, Cheeklift, Fat grafting and Laser resurfacing can provide a full facial rejuvenation.
