A mini-facelift is a procedure performed on those who desire a tighter, more refined jawline only. Sometimes known as an “S-Lift”, a mini-facelift is often the procedure of choice for younger patients who are just beginning to notice droopy skin along their jawline and jowls.
A mini-facelift differs from a traditional facelift by having a shorter incision and the tightening is done in a superficial tissue layer. This technique minimizes the risk of potential complications and allows for a mini-facelift to be performed safely in the office under local anesthesia.
A mini-facelift can be done in conjunction with liposuction (chin area) to give the jawline even more definition. By removing excess skin and tightening facial muscles you can achieve a more youthful looking jawline and profile.
