Hey Toronto: What is a mini-facelift as opposed to a full face lift?

The Mini Face-lift

We sat down with Dr. Goldberg and asked him just what is a mini face-lift  and what the difference is between that and a regular face lift. If you’re looking for an anti ageing solution facelifts are becoming more common and a mini face-lift might be your best option. Dr Goldberg can review all aspects of the procedure for you to make sure you proceed with the right anti ageing solution.

What is a mini-facelift?

A mini facelift is a facelift which is offered to certain patients who have lesser need of tightening of the skin and less visible aging.  For those patients it’s possible to tighten the skin and the internal fibre structure and muscle structure of the face with a relatively limited procedure which then results in less swelling and less bruising and less recovery time.  However it’s important to remember that this procedure is only applicable to certain patients.  Many people still do require the full facelift.  There are a lot of different variety of facelift and ways of doing it as well as incisions that are used to do it.  While there is a lot of taboo associated with a facelift, it’s important to recognize that it’s a much lesser procedure than most people perceive it to be and something that be considered or at least discussed without attaching the Hollywood taboo that most people consider with it.

Both the mini facelift and full facelift are both intended to address roughly from the level of the eyes down to the level of the neck, but it won’t address around the eyes, and it won’t address the brow or forehead.

Do face and neck exercises work to reduce sag?
