Mini Facelift Jacksonville
Some patients may not require a full face lift which includes thorough undermining of the skin of the face and neck and repositioning of these tissues. These patients may be candidates for a Mini Face Lift which involves limited undermining of the facial skin with plication (stitching) of the underlying connective tissue structure (the SMAS). Potential candidates for the Mini Face Lift have:
- Sagging of the facial skin
- Early jowl formation in the lower cheeks
- A relatively youthful neck
You can discuss with Dr. Hardy whether you are a better candidate for full or Mini facelift based upon your cosmetic and lifestyle needs. Since the surgery is less extensive that the traditional face lift, the recovery period is less and the time of surgery is decreased.
