Some patients have just a few specific areas of the face they wish to address. In such patients, the mini facelift can accomplish dramatic improvements while remaining far less invasive than traditional facelift procedures. This is particularly applicable to patients who are relatively young in their 30s or 40s.
Benefits of Mini Facelift
In addition to producing nearly scar-less results, a mini facelift allows patients to improve areas that are difficult to reach with more traditional face lift procedures. In particular, areas toward the center of the face, such as the nasolabial folds or creases around the mouth are often hard to reach during traditional facelift surgery.
Because an edoscope is used, this procedure allows Dr. Repta to aesthetically alter traditionally hard-to-reach areas. Less invasive than a traditional facelift, there is shorter operative time and less risk of complications.
