Aging causes a variety of undesirable processes to occur on the face. Sagging skin, wrinkles, sunken cheeks, and an overall worn out appearance can be just some of the symptoms that people experience. These and other effects from aging can be greatly reduced with a facelift, sometimes taking 10 to 20 years away from your face. Old age may be inevitable for everyone, but looking old doesn’t have to be.

What Can a Facelift Do?
A facelift is an effective way to reduce the visible signs of aging in the face and neck, or, more specifically:
- Eliminate sagging skin
- Smooth wrinkles such as laugh lines
- Remove excess fat
- Rejuvenate areas of the face that have lost fat, or “sunken”
- Tighten loose skin that causes a double chin
Although a facelift cannot stop the aging process, it can slow it down considerably and give you more time to look young and beautiful.
How Long is Recovery After a Facelift?
Recovery time depends on the extent of your facelift, as well as your consistency in the aftercare instructions provided by your surgeon. Slight pain and swelling are perfectly normal after a facelift and usually go away in a relatively short amount of time. Your surgeon will discuss all aspects of post-facelift recovery with you at your consultation.
What is a Mini Facelift?
If you are not looking for a complete facelift, a mini facelift may be right for you. A mini facelift addresses wrinkles, creases, and other imperfections in a similar way as a full facelift, but to a different extent. A mini facelift improves unwanted features in just the lower half of the face, such as the cheeks and jowls. Therefore a mini facelift procedure takes less time to perform, and also takes less time to recover from.
The results of a mini facelift usually last from 2 to 5 years. You may be a good candidate for a mini facelift if you are experiencing photoaging issues in the lower half of the face that you would like corrected. If you are looking for a facelift but would like to avoid something as extensive as a full facelift, call our office today to schedule a consultation and find out if a mini facelift is right for you!
