Are there any new mini facelift techniques out there that are really effective?
A mini facelift can be an effective treatment of early jowls and laxity in the neck. The use of the terminology of a “mini facelift” is somewhat subjective and can vary with different surgeons. I utilize this terminology to mean a facelift for patients with early signs of aging that don’t have excessive tissue in the neck. The technique for the surgery is basically the same as a facelift but the incision can be smaller, because less excess tissue is being excised. The change may be less dramatic than a traditional facelift since most of the patients have more moderate age related changes in their face, but the results should be just as effective and long lasting.
