Getting a Mini Facelift

No matter where in the world you are, from Miami to New York, Los Angeles or even in Paris, you may have noticed a trend of people wanting to look younger. Facelifts are one of the best ways to achieve this goal, and they are also some of the most popular ways to look younger. Of course, there are plenty of other options to try before getting your face operated on. There are creams and other external treatments that can really make a difference in the way that your skin looks and feels. Laser resurfacing can also help your skin to have a youthful glow and shine. Other alternatives to facelifts include the ever popular Botox injections for wrinkles that are around the brow line, and dermal fillers such as Restylane for wrinkles found in the mouth area.

These can help with minor wrinkles, and delay the need for a facelift for a few years. Sometimes, however, other treatments don't work and you just have to go for the big guns. In these cases, the surgical step known as a facelift may be your only option. For many years, patients had just one choice in facelifts - the full facelift, a lengthy procedure with a lengthy cut. Today, even the full facelift usually does not require such a drastic amount of cutting.

Small incisions can usually be made in the hairline in order to pull skin and tissue to a tight appearance, cutting any excess tissue and skin away leaving the face looking younger and less wrinkled. If your wrinkles are not covering your entire face, but are seen more in the lower half of your face, you may be a candidate for the mini facelift instead. This facelift is targeted towards those people who have sagging jowls and neck skin - and can lift these areas without extensive surgery. Since this surgery is far less extensive, there is less risk - and less recovery time with a mini facelift. The doctor may even be able to perform the surgery without the use of general anesthesia, instead using local anesthesia to numb the area he or she is working on.

This will shorten recovery time. Smaller cuts can be made to minimize scarring - the incisions will probably only be around the ear, and the underlying tissues and skin will be pulled through these little areas in order to be smoothed and kept taut. In this way, jowls will be banished and a youthful appearance will be restored. While the mini facelift is not for everyone, it is a good option for those people who need to have work done in the lower areas of their face, but don't want to have to have an entire facelift surgery. This surgery works well for many people, but be sure to discuss the risks and results with your doctor.
