Depending on our genetics, how we go about our everyday activities and our overall health, our skin succumbs to aging differently. The signs of aging often start with fine lines and wrinkles around the expressive areas of the face, and general skin laxity due to a loss in vital collagen production. Without active collagen and elastin fibers continually regenerating, those wrinkles and fine lines can become more prominent and require some preventative care. If you’re looking into plastic surgery for the first time to remedy the signs of aging but aren’t sure about doing a fully invasive facelift, we recommend starting with a mini facelift at Riverview.
What is a Mini Facelift?
A mini facelift, also known as a short scar or S-lift, is a less invasive surgical procedure than a standard facelift. The procedure is primarily designed to address signs of aging in the lower face and the jawline. This procedure uses smaller incisions and involves a shorter surgery, which means a faster recovery for the patient without sacrificing dramatic, long-lasting results.
A mini facelift can be a good option for individuals looking for relief from earlier signs of aging. The procedure and recovery are relatively quick and the results can be long-lasting with proper care. To learn more about a mini facelift, contact us at Riverview Facial Plastic Surgery.
