Mini Facelift

A facelift is designed to lift and tighten the tissues of the cheeks, jaw line, and neck. There are many different types of facelift, including the mini facelift, offered in the Denver metropolitan area, with the differences among them relating to incision length and location, degree and depth of undermining of tissues, direction of pull/lift, and manner in which the deeper structures are tightened (if they are tightened at all).

The goal of the surgeon should be to perform the smallest operation that will achieve the patient's aesthetic desires. In the case of facelift procedures, if a small facelift will do, then a full facelift will unnecessarily increase the patient's cost, risk, and recovery time. By the same token, a limited procedure may be inappropriate in a patient with significant laxity and heavy tissues who desires an aggressive correction of her facial aging.

Important Truths About Your Mini Facelift

In some cases, additional procedures may be added to a Minifacelift to enhance its effect. Liposuction of the neck, direct tightening of the neck muscles (platysmaplasty), and/or fat grafting to the face may all be beneficial in selected patients.

A minifacelift procedure will not address the brow or eyelids. A brow lift and/or blepharoplasty can be safely performed at the same time as a minifacelift to treat these areas.

Lighter anesthesia or no anesthesia during a procedure does not change the nature of the procedure itself.
