What is the Difference Between a Mini FaceLift vs a Full FaceLift?

Mini or Full FaceLift, Which Type is Right For Me?

A Mini FaceLift and a Full FaceLift are two of the most commonly used facial rejuvenation procedures. Both procedures reduce the signs of aging and restore a youthful contour to the face.

A Mini FaceLift is a less invasive procedure that typically focuses on the upper or lower third of the face. The procedure requires shorter incisions and is usually performed under local anesthesia. The procedure is often used to address mild to moderate signs of aging.

A Full Facelift is a more extensive procedure that addresses the entire face and neck. It is typically performed under general anesthesia and requires longer incisions. The goal of a Full FaceLift is to lift and reposition the skin and underlying tissues in the face. A Full FaceLift addresses more advanced signs of aging, such as deep wrinkles and sagging skin. A Full FaceLift results in a smoother, well-rested, more youthful appearance.

Key Differences Between a Mini FaceLift Vs a Full FaceLift

Anesthesia: A Mini FaceLift is typically performed under local anesthesia, while a Full Facelift requires general anesthesia.

Incisions: Mini FaceLift incisions are shorter and located near the ears, while Full FaceLift incisions are longer and located around the ears and in front of the hairline.

Area of Focus: A Mini FaceLift typically focuses on the lower third of the face, while a Full FaceLift addresses the entire face.

Results: A Mini FaceLift can improve mild to moderate signs of aging, while a Full FaceLift is designed to address more advanced signs of aging.

Recovery Time: A Mini Facelift has a shorter recovery time than a full facelift.
