I’d like to look younger and also enhance my natural beauty with a mini facelift. I was wondering how effective this was as compared to a regular facelift.
My vision of a perfect facelift is to enhance your natural beauty. If you are relatively young and your primary concern is that your jowls seem to be sagging and your neck has some mild laxity, then a mini facelift may be right for you. If you have more advanced skin laxity of your face and neck, then it is likely that a mini facelift may not give you the surgical outcome that you were hoping for and you are likely better served with a full facelift procedure. It is not that the mini facelift is not as effective as a full facelift, but, rather, are you the right candidate for a mini facelift or would you be better served with a full facelift. In either the mini facelift or the full facelift procedures, the objective is to enhance your natural beauty and refresh your face, not create an appearance that does not resemble who you are.
