I am very interested in the mini face lift because it is less invasive than a regular face lift. Most of my issues are with the lower half of my face, my neck, lower cheeks and jowls, so I think I am a good candidate for this surgery. How does the mini face lift differ surgically from the traditional face lift?
Hate to be the bearer of potentially bad news, but if you have an issue with jowls and your neck, a full lower face lift may be the best operation for you. Most “most mini lifts” are cheek lifts. They mostly tighten your jawline. A submental platysmaplasty tightens the skin and muscles under your chin. A neck lift tightens the entire neck. These are also “mini lifts” when done as individually. Both also usually include some liposuction of the neck. I would be happy to look at some photos to give you an educated guess as to what you need. You can contact us at [email protected]. Also, here is a link to our page on mini lifts. It explains the whole subject pretty clearly: http://www.drbentkover.com/procedures/mini-facelift
