These are essentially a marketing promotion technique. For instance I market the LoopLift because I am located in the Chicago Loop district.
I tailor the lift to each specific patient which is how it should be. The mini part just dictates the tissues layers involved. The more aging, skin, muscle and soft tissue sagging you have the more extensive the surgery needs to be. At the same time it is all about the patients. Some people only are really looking to get the jowl area treated. For that a minilift is adequate typically. If you also don't like your neck then a necklift is added to the minilift.
Hope this helps.
Best of luck,
