Should I have a mini lift or full facelift?

At some point, it’s going to happen. We just can’t escape the inevitable effects of age, gravity and exposure of sun to our skin. As muscles weaken and descend on your face around your jaw line, wrinkles will become more prominent and permanent. 

As a society, we used to accept these changes as a necessary part of the aging process. With today’s emphasis on health and fitness, many men and women are taking the attitude that there is no good reason to look older than you feel.

A facelift surgery is one of the most common procedures to reduce signs of aging. A facelift lifts and tightens sagging skin, redefining your jaw line and neck.

But, what if you’re not sure if you’re ready for a facelift procedure? With the relatively new mini facelift option, more patients are able to see significant results by choosing this less invasive procedure in their younger years.

A mini lift is a less invasive procedure that can focus on lifting a smaller area, such as a cheek, jowls or neck.

So, should you have a mini lift or a full facelift? Depending on the amount of aging changes present as well as results desired, a mini lift may be an appropriate option. By scheduling a consultation with Dr. Paik at our Evansville, Indiana office, you’ll have a better understanding of results you can experience with either a mini lift or a full facelift.
