Mini Face Lift
Let’s “face it”, you’re getting older and you’re cheeks, forehead and chin are falling to the floor. Its okay – this is only Mother Nature’s way of telling you that you retirement is near. But more and more people want to look young and feel confident without going through major reconstructive surgery. This is why a mini facelift is the perfect alternative!
A mini facelift can provide targeted results to areas of the face without the time and effort required for a traditional facelift surgery. A mini facelift is a minimally invasive procedure with fewer incisions than traditional surgery. Its results are less dramatic but can pinpoint specific signs of aging in the face. That's why a mini facelift is a popular choice for younger patients as a maintenance procedure. It prevents the need for more dramatic changes later in life and makes subtle changes to the face that doesn't look its been operated on.
These 'weekend face lifts' have been wildly popular among movie stars and celebrities because of short recovery times. Undergoing several mini facelifts is also easier than waiting to do a full facelift later on. That's especially the case for people with busy lives and for people who care a lot about the way they look. Celebrities aren't the only people who need to look good to make a living either. Studies have shown that good looks are directly proportional to high pay. That's why young executives have been gravitating towards mini facelifts over the last few years.
A mini face lift is like a traditional face lift in that incisions are required along the hairline or near the ears in order to help pull back skin and reconstruct facial muscles. The difference is in the numbers: a mini facelift procedure uses fewer and smaller incisions. Though this means that the results are less dramatic than a traditional facelift, it's a very attractive option for those with specific facial enhancement needs. A surgeon can target these problem areas with the right kind and size of incision. By using fewer incisions, the recovery time and number of complications associated with the surgery are reduced significantly.
For those looking to keep their youthful look but aren't willing to wait until they really need a full facelift, a mini facelift is the answer. It's a short and safe operation that can provide specific results that keeps your look youthful and energetic without making it obvious that you've undergone surgery. It can't solve all of your problems but it can fix the ones that are beginning to show at any age.
