Many individuals choose to fight the signs of aging with a facelift, and you may be considering this procedure as well. There are different types of these procedures, which include a full and mini facelift. Both procedures offer a number of benefits and can significantly reduce many of the signs of aging by tightening the skin, smoothing deep folds, and lifting deep facial tissue, among providing other benefits, but which procedure is best for you?
A Closer Look at the Procedures
Both procedures yield similar results, which include tightened skin in the jowls and neck. Both procedures also remove excess skin. The key differences include the target areas, technique, and how long it takes to recover.
A mini facelift is beneficial for those who want to treat mild signs of aging. It can reduce sagging and wrinkles in various areas, but it does not treat everything that a full lift treats. A mini facelift is an advanced surgical procedure that can bring about amazing results for those who qualify.
With a full lift, you will be given general anesthesia. This procedure will most likely take several hours to complete. Those who undergo a mini facelift will be benefiting from a less involved procedure overall; however, it is still highly advanced.
A full facelift may require incisions that start at the temples or hairline and extend around the ear. With a mini facelift, advanced techniques and surgical tools can be used to tighten loose skin in the face and remove excess fat as needed. Generally speaking, a mini lift is less invasive and easier to undergo.
Of course, the exact details of each of these procedures vary from patient to patient. The above is just a general overview of the key similarities and differences when it comes to a full vs. mini lift.
