I would much prefer a mini lift because it’s less expensive and less invasive, but can it improve sagging skin and jowls?
Question: I would much prefer a mini lift because it’s less expensive and less invasive, but can it improve sagging skin and jowls?
Answer: A mini lift is excellent at getting rid of jowling and does a very nice job of getting rid of laxity under the chin as well. It has some limitation on how defined the neckline can appear, but that is really dependent on the patient’s anatomy as opposed to the actual lift itself. That is why I think it is wise that patients seek out an experienced facial plastic surgeon for their mini lift since I am able to provide them with different options of more advanced facelifts that can provide amazing rejuvenation and better contour to the upper neck than a simple mini lift can provide. They can still choose to have the mini lift, but at least they would understand the limitations of the lift compared to a more advanced technique.
