What is a Mini Facelift?
A mini facelift helps with sagging skin and wrinkles on the lower third of your face as well as to improve the definition of your chin. The lower part of the face is most often where the signs of aging first show and can be the most obvious. When your mini facelift is performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Castellon, you can expect to look refreshed and younger.
Benefits of a Mini Facelift
A mini facelift has many benefits, such as:
- Fewer incisions/scars and shorter recovery period compared to a full facelift
- Softens lines and wrinkles in the lower third of the face
- Addresses the most obvious signs of aging, such as nasolabial lines around the nose and mouth
- Eliminates sagging skin that gives you a drawn and tired appearance
Who is the Ideal Candidate for a Mini Facelift?
You may be a candidate for a mini facelift if you have sagging skin on your jowls, poor chin definition and wrinkles or creases around your nose and mouth. If you have moderate to severe signs of aging around your eyes or on your forehead, Dr. Castellon may recommend other procedures in conjunction with your mini facelift.
