Mini Facelift vs. Full Facelift: Which is Best?

Everyone's face is different, and as such, there are some patients that are great candidates for a mini facelift and some that are better off having full facelift surgery. If a person can get a perfect result with an in-office mini facelift, then there’s no need to take them to an operating room for a full facelift procedure.

At the same time, if a person's anatomy is such that a mini facelift will never give them ideal results, then a full facelift might be the best option. The bottom line is there are several different ways to perform a facelift and an experienced facelift surgeon should know them all. That surgeon will be able to evaluate you and determine if you are a great candidate for a mini facelift, or if you would be better served by a more sophisticated form of a full facelift.

Also, other areas of your face may determine what kind of procedure is performed. For instance, if you need a mid-facelift and a lower facelift, you may be better off getting a deep plane facelift that can treat both at the same time. If you have low set brows, you may need an endoscopic brow lift along with the facelift. Most patients have signs of aging in all areas of their face, including the brows, eyelids, cheeks and lower face.

In order to preserve facial harmony, it is common to perform multiple procedures all at the same time in order to create an extremely natural, yet very youthful appearance. This could include a brow lift, upper eyelid lift, lower eyelid lift, mid-facelift, full facelift, and even laser resurfacing, all at the same time. When you team up with an experienced plastic surgeon, you’ll be able to discuss all mini facelift options and choose what best fits your budget and lifestyle.
