What is a Minimally Invasive (Short Scar) Facelift vs a Full Facelift?

Although it’s a procedure with an outstanding record of success, a standard, composite, or full facelift may not be the best surgical option for individuals with only minor signs of aging. Minimally invasive, or short scar, techniques have been developed and are used that rejuvenate the face and address a person’s aesthetic concerns without sacrificing results. Often a minimally invasive or short scar facelift involves less: less scaring, less surgery, less anesthesia, and less down time.

Examples of the mini facelift techniques used by the surgeons at Plastic Surgery Institute (PSI) of Miami are the endoscopic midface lift, the subciliary midface lift, as well as other short scar techniques. These procedures utilize nearly invisible scars and technologically advanced surgical instruments to reverse the effects of aging on the midface, producing a more youthful appearance.

Why get a Short Scar (Mini) Facelift?

Maintaining a youthful appearance isn’t a concern only for people in their 60’s or 70’s. Cheek descent and a decrease in jawline definition are just two of the initial signs of the aging process that may be seen in the 5th, 4th, or even the 3rd decade of life. A person may want to address these concerns with a corrective procedure without necessarily undergoing a complete facelift.
