Mini Facelift Vs. Facelift: Which is Better?

Facelift procedures are the gold standard option for patients that want to achieve a younger-looking appearance. For the right person, a facelift can provide game-changing results that last a lifetime. If you’re like many, you’re under the common misconception that all facelift procedures are created equal. Fortunately, there are a wide variety of procedures designed to tackle your specific concerns.

The highly-skilled surgeons at Sthetix routinely perform custom facelift procedures for men and women of all walks of life. During your initial consultation, your surgeon will speak with you about your concerns and personalize your treatment based on some of the following criteria.

#1: Your Aesthetic Concerns

Determining your aesthetic concerns is the number one deciding factor in figuring out which procedure is best for you. A traditional facelift uses a comprehensive approach that tackles a variety of concerns on the mid-face, jawline, and neck. The procedure offers deep tissue relayering for those with moderate to severe wrinkles and skin laxity.

A mini facelift is primarily used for men and women that would like to correct early-on signs of aging in the cheek and jawline. The procedure can lift and remove sagging skin while also addressing wrinkles in the mid-to-lower face. A mini lift typically cannot combat age-related concerns on the neck.

#2: Incision Placement

Incisions and scars typically go hand in hand. Patients that are worried about potential scarring might be more interested in mini facelift procedures with smaller, less noticeable incisions. Our skilled surgeons use the latest, most advanced surgical techniques to keep scars to a minimum. Whichever procedure you opt for, incisions will be placed in discrete and easily-concealable locations.

#3: Amount of Recovery Time

Of course, you’d like to achieve an optimal outcome with minimal recovery. If downtime is your biggest concern, a mini facelift procedure may be your best bet. However, if you’re looking for more dramatic anti-aging results, a traditional facelift is probably the way to go. Facelift surgery typically requires 1-2 weeks of downtime compared to several days with a mini lift.

#4: Your Short and Long-Term Goals

A mini facelift procedure may be able to give you faster results, but an optimal outcome won’t last nearly as long as a traditional facelift. While full facelift surgery generally offers lifelong results, a mini lift may need to be repeated in about 5-10 years. Depending on your short and long-term goals, one procedure may be better suited for you over the other.

The best way to determine what’s right for you is through an in-person consultation with one of our skilled surgeons. They’ll be able to walk you through all of your options in-depth so that you can make an informed decision.

I immediately felt in good hand. Dr Alvi Reputation was very impressive. On meeting him I was relieved how honest and clear he was and I’m looking forward to getting my procedure this month.
