Like a facelift, a mini lift addresses wrinkles and sagging skin on the face. The primary difference is that a mini lift targets the cheeks and jowls, 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 ›
