A mini-facelift is a popular, limited version of a standard facelift. The incisions are placed below sideburn and in the crease around the ear and are generally well concealed. These incisions permit the surgeon to mobilize the loose skin in the cheek, jaw line, and upper neck, remove the excess skin from these areas, and lift the remaining skin upward and backward to achieve a more youthful appearance.
The best candidates for a mini-facelift are in good physical and psychological health, have realistic expectations, are non-smokers, and are primarily interested in improvement of the cheek, jaw line, and upper neck. It is an excellent procedure for a patient seeking a refreshed look and a shorter recovery time and less expense than a standard facelift.
If these are your circumstances, it is likely that you are a good candidate for a mini-facelift. Please call Bowers Plastic Surgery at telephone number 336-907-7980 or Contact Us to arrange a consultation with Dr. David Bowers.
