Aging brings with it some unwelcome changes to the skin and soft tissues of the face.As a result, some people take action earlyto try and prevent those changes from setting in, and a mini-facelift is one of the procedures often chosen. But it may not be the right fix for everyone, so patients contemplating the procedure are often curious to find out – Am I a good candidate for a mini-facelift.
A mini-facelift is one of the top 3 facial rejuvenation procedures performed in the US each year.It addresses sagging jowls and jawline by tightening the skin and underlying tissue, much like a full facelift. However, the incisions used for a mini-lift are much shorter, and less skin is removed. There is less scarring with the mini-facelift, and the recovery time is shorter.
Am I a good candidate for a mini-facelift?
The typical candidate for a mini facelift is someone in their mid-40s with moderate signs of aging. So if you have mild to moderate skin laxity, and slight sagging in the lower face and neck, you may be a good candidate. A mini-facelift will give you a younger, refreshed appearance.
Younger patients with good skin elasticity generally see better results with a mini-facelift. When done correctly, the mini-facelift can provide natural looking facial rejuvenation that lasts a long time.
