Some people may need a full facelift to achieve the results they desire. For those not requiring a full facelift, the mini-facelift is the ideal procedure. The lower third part of the face and neck are the primary areas. By using local anesthesia, a cosmetic surgeon makes incisions in several different areas around the ear to tighten muscles and remove excess skin.
Typically, this procedure is less invasive than having a full facelift. Areas of the face are targeted for optimal results where the patient recovers sooner. Additionally, the mini-facelift costs less.
