Like a facelift, a mini lift addresses wrinkles and sagging skin on the face. The primary difference is that it's intended to address the cheeks and jowls specifically, and not the upper face. While the procedure won't deliver the effects of a full facelift, benefits included a shorter scar and a quicker recovery time. LEARN MORE ›

I am so happy with the results of Dr. Harley's surgery! I had the procedure done Friday, June 10, only 6 days ago. I was able to go out almost immediately with no one seeing that I had just had surgery. I had no bruising and very little swelling. He does the procedure with Valium and local. ... READ MORE

After several years of using Botox and various facial fillers, I decided to look into the prospect of having a facelift and have been researching plastic surgeons in the St. Louis area. Dr. Mark Boschert at Renaissance Plastic Surgery in St. Peter’s, Missouri came highly recommended. After t... READ MORE

Once I got to the age where I started getting wrinkles, I started to become extremely self conscious about my appearance. On the inside, I have always felt young at heart however, when I looked in the mirror, the inside didn't match the outside. Getting a mini face lift was something I thought... READ MORE

This is the best thing I ever did! NO ANESTHESIA! only local! Ten times easier than a dentist appointment! Painless too. First off it was so easy I literally was in the office 2.5 hours total! He numbs your face and pulls skin back and clips it, stitches baby stitches near your ears that are... READ MORE

I can honestly say, I've lived a blessed life and I’m even excited about the prospect of turning 50 years old later this year. While I don't need a major overhaul, I’ve always known, the time for me to address facial/neck sagging would be before it garnered enough momentum to drastically cha... READ MORE

I'm 51 and the last two years noticed a real decline in my skin, particularly the appearance of jowls. I tried all the things we try - expensive creams, etc. Finally I went for a consultation with Dr. Jacono and my husband and I were very impressed. He was honest, matter-of-fact and it felt...

Hi, I have been reading here and pretty much everywhere on line and consulted a surgeon in the US about my wish to have my face back. I'm 50 yrs but feel significantly younger. I had started to avoid my reflection for the past few years:( I have had 2 procedures 15 yrs ago (a tummy tuck and... READ MORE

I am 57 years old and had been consumed with pulling my face back tight every time I looked in the nirror. It's like in the last 10 months my face fell and became uneven (where there had been symmetry) and SQUARE where there used to an oval face. Being told "you look tired" along with avoiding...

I'm a 51 yr old female. Dr. Hankins did an outstanding job on my mini face lift !! I'm soooooooooooo happy!!! The picture I am posting is "before" with a "3 day after surgery" pic when they were removing the dressing. If you are thinking of having a face lift, I know it's a big decision and... READ MORE

I started using fillers around 35 and botox around 33. At first i was addicted! I thought this is great im never going to look old and then 39 hit and my entire face just seemed to fall off. It seemed like it happened overnight. I woke up one morning and didnt recognize the old saggy neck lady... READ MORE

I am a patient of Dr.Troy Woodmans at Aesthetic Surgery Center located at 2202 S Cedar St #300 Tacoma,Wa 98405. Just this last April Dr.Woodman did a mini-facelift for me.I think I'd like to describe him as a true artist.The work he did on me I just can't express how truly happy that I am with... READ MORE

You can not possibly imagine the change in my life, the smile I carry on face now constantly!! The double takes, the compliments are all because of the work you did. Thank you for the bottom of my heart! You and your team were absolutely the best in every sense of the word. No matter what time I... READ MORE

Hello RealSelfers...I have been following many of you in your mini facelift journeys and you have given me the courage to follow through. Tomorrow morning is my procedure and I am so scared and just want to get it over with! I started noticing "pouches" around my nasolabial folds in my early... READ MORE

I am a 39 year old woman who used to hate my lower face. Through an unfortunate combination of genetics, I inherited my mother's cheeks and father's strong jawline. Each one individually would have been fine, but having them both has always made me feel that my lower face was much heavier and... READ MORE

I had a mini lift 2 months ago. I was hoping to see more improvement in the laugh lines around my mouth but they do appear slightly less noticeable. What has me concerned are the scars in front of my ears - one more so than the other. I was expecting it to run along the lobe as shown to me in... READ MORE

Pre surgery visit was to the point, with all questions answered. Dr John Tate reported he averages one lift a week. This week he has three. He did is fellowship in plastics. His primary practice is ENT in Lebanon Tennessee (approx 30 mins from downtown Nashville).Pre surgery visit was to the... READ MORE

I had been looking to smooth out my neck and jowls 5 years ago but a Baltimore plastic surgeon said there was little that could be done for a saggy neck! Boy, was he wrong!! I was lucky to find Dr Pontell online near Philadelphia and he performed a "Mini Facelift". This was the best 53rd... READ MORE

Since menopause my face changed quickly with jowls and loose skin on my neck giving me a little "waddle". I've had a few people recently think my (younger) husband is my son. That didn't used to happen. So, I'm having a mini face lift to look more like "me"...a younger me! Thank you to those... READ MORE

I just want to start off by saying teens, 20's I never thought at 28 I'd be seeing changes with my face, aging signs this early. I've been a long distance runner my whole life, lean and less then a hundred pounds. Burned through most of my subcutaneous fat layer. Going through pregnancy and it... READ MORE

Dr. Lee did my first "lifestyle lift" in 2009 and I was very pleased with the results. So, as a present to myself on my 67th birthday, I went back to him for a "touch-up". He actually did 4 procedures - a mini-face lift, some tightening at the temples, removal of the buccal fat pads to give my... READ MORE
