The Benefits Of Mini-Facelift And Mid-Facelift In Comparison To Full Face And Neck Lift

So, you’ve been thinking about getting a facelift? A facelift is a great procedure to help set back the clock to create a more youthful image. Deciding to get one can be a bit tricky because of the wide variety of different procedures out there. From mini facelift, mid-facelift, to a full facelift— it can be difficult to determine which one is right for you and your aesthetic concerns. If these considerations have kept you from committing you a facelift, even though you’re unhappy with the signs of aging on your face, it’s time to do a bit more research with some help.


Dr. Malena Amato Eyelid & Facial Plastic Surgeon is experienced in minimally invasive surgeries, endoscopic and laser cutting edge techniques. With her knowledge, skill, and close attention to detail, after having experience in reconstructive surgery or corrective surgery for patients that are not happy with the results of procedures done by another surgeon, you can rest assured that your goals are in the most capable hands.


Here’s are some of the benefits of choosing a mini or mid-facelift in comparison to a traditional face and neck lift.


Mid Facelift


A mid facelift, also known as a cheek lift, is a surgical procedure that focuses on a specific area where signs of aging appear earliest: the cheeks. The procedure can add a more youthful contour beneath the eyes, above the mouth, and around the jaw, providing you with a more refreshed image.


A mid facelift is excellent for patients who have sagging or drooping cheeks. Sagging cheeks can be an issue that occurs because of significant volume loss in the mid face region, resulting in a drooping appearance. A mid facelift is ideal for patients who have developed deep nasolabial folds and jowls. A mid facelift offers long-lasting results, and with Dr. Amato, you can rest assured that your results will be as natural-looking as possible.

Mini Facelift


A mini facelift is a slightly modified version of a traditional facelift that involves less excessive skin removal.


A mini facelift is for patients who have minor concerns and aren’t ready to fully commit to a mid or full facelift. This surgical procedure is exceptional for correcting the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles found near the mouth and chin, loose skin around the neck, and sagging skin around the chin. The procedure also work in conjunctions with additional treatments like an eyelid lift or dermal fillers, to further enhance your results.


Full Facelift


A full facelift, also known as the traditional facelift, is the ideal treatment for those patients who want to rejuvenate their appearance completely. The procedure is more extensive than a mini facelift or a mid facelift, meaning that your recovery time would be significantly longer, but the results are more dramatic.


A full facelift with a neck lift treats a wide range of cosmetic issues. If you struggle with a combination of sagging, wrinkles, and lines that extend down your neck, a full facelift with a neck lift may be right for you.
