Mini Facelifts are Very Popular

Apr 7, 2008
No matter where in the world you are, from Miami to New York, Los Angeles or even in Paris, you may have noticed a trend of people wanting to look younger. Facelifts are one of the best ways to achieve this goal, and they are also some of the most popular ways to look younger.

Of course, there are plenty of other options to try before getting your face operated on. There are creams and other external treatments that can really make a difference in the way that your skin looks and feels. Laser resurfacing can also help your skin to have a youthful glow and shine.

Some people aren't happy with the results of these simpler treatments, however, and then search out the next step in cosmetic help with aging. Injectable treatments such as Botox treatments around the brow area and Restylane treatments around the mouth lines can stave off some of aging's effects.

Sometimes, however, other treatments don't work and you just have to go for the big guns. In these cases, the surgical step known as a facelift may be your only option. For many years, patients had just one choice in facelifts - the full facelift, a lengthy procedure with a lengthy cut.

While this cut, usually made along the hairline to minimize scarring and noticeability, was difficult to endure, surgeons have now discovered different ways to make the cutting needed smaller and less invasive. These cuts are still required to get at the tissues underneath so skin can be pulled taut.

However, there are even more options now for patients who do not have wrinkles or spots of concern that cover their entire face. The mini facelift can be used on patients who have wrinkles only on the lower half of their face, or sagging jowls that need to be pulled upward to create a youthful look.

Less surgery means that you may not even need general anesthesia for this procedure - depending on your doctor's preference. You may be able to have local anesthetic shots along with a sedative in order to have the mini facelift performed in the plastic surgeon's office.

Incisions for the mini facelift are different - they are smaller, and usually found only around the ear. The procedure is much the same, however, with tissues being pulled up and occasionally removed, then sutured to give a smoother and more tight appearance to the skin of the face.

Mini facelifts are not the right procedure for everyone. You must need the area of the face rejuvenated that this procedure covers - and you must realize the risk involved in any surgery. If you make sure to research properly, you too can have a great experience with your mini facelift.
