Combat the Signs of Aging with a Minimally Invasive Mini Facelift

Sagging around the cheeks, a slack jawline, and loose skin along the neck are some of the earliest signs of aging that many of us wish to improve. To help you look as young as you feel, Dr. Ken Smart is proud to offer mini facelift surgery at his Frisco practice. Less invasive than a full facelift, a mini facelift targets the lower face and neck to enhance your natural features and help you achieve a refreshed, overall more youthful appearance. To learn more about how you can benefit from a mini facelift, schedule an appointment with us today.

Your Consultation

During your consultation, Dr. Smart will discuss your aesthetic goals, and help determine whether a mini facelift can best deliver the results you desire. If you are also concerned with the brow area, for example, he may recommend that you consider a brow lift, or a full facelift instead. Unlike a traditional facelift, which addresses the entire face, a mini facelift targets only the lower portion of the face and neck. 

The Procedure

Since this surgery is less invasive than a traditional facelift, Dr. Smart is able to use smaller incisions. These incisions are made near the ears and are easily concealed in your hairline, minimizing the chance of any visible scarring.

Through these incisions, Dr. Smart will access sagging tissue and gently pull it into a more youthful position. He will remove any excess tissue, and also tighten and reposition the skin for greater definition along the lower cheeks, jaw, chin, and upper portion of the neck. This tissue will be sutured into its new position and the incisions will be closed. 

Determining Your Candidacy

Candidates for mini facelift need to have sufficient elasticity in their facial skin to allow for the most natural-looking results. Due to the natural aging process, patients may have lax skin throughout the lower portion of the face, folds around the nose, minor jowls along the jawline, and a neck that is beginning to droop. Because this treatment is designed for patients with initial and limited signs of aging, candidates are typically in their 30s and 40s.

Reduced Scarring and Minimal Side Effects

Patients who want to enhance only specific areas of the face often choose a mini facelift. Because it is a less invasive option than many other facial cosmetic procedures, many patients choose to benefit from its:

  • Reduced recovery time
  • Little to no visible scarring
  • Lower risk of complications
  • Minimal side effects that quickly dissipate

Many of our patients choose to enhance their mini facelift results with a non-surgical skin treatment once healing is complete. Dr. Smart can recommend an anti-aging therapy that complements a lower facelift, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or dermal fillers.
