“Ohhh Girl, I think that man is check’in me out.”
“Cherlene, there’s a clock over your head there.”
“Oh hush girl. You know, maybe I need one of them Mini Face Lift things.”
“I don’t know Cherlene; I think your big head may need a Maxi Face Lift.”
“Shut up Girl!”
Do you look older than you feel? Does the face in your mirror, not match the fire in your heart? Well maybe it’s time to think about helping the two meet. One way to make that happen is through a Mini Face Lift. But, what does that mean? Well, look at the Mini Facelift Photos in the adjoining picture and see what that means.
What is a Mini Face Lift?
A Rhytidectomy (Face Lift) of any kind, including a Mini Face Lift, is the:
- Removal of excess skin
- Tightening of excess skin
- Redraping of skin
- Adjustment or removal of underlying tissue
There are a variety of Rhytidectomies that your Plastic Surgeon may use. Which one will depend on several things. When you sit down with your surgeon, he or she will talk about what you want out of this procedure. There are several things they are going to discuss and take into account, including but not limited to:
- What is your age?
- What are the recovery times for the different procedures?
- What areas do you want to improve?
- What risks are involved with each operation?
- What are the expectations for the surgery?
Together you and you physician will determine which procedure is right for you and you should know exactly what to expect when you leave the office. It’s important to note here that if you don’t feel comfortable with what you’ve heard, let your surgeon know. If you don’t feel like you’re being heard, look elsewhere. You are going to need to feel good about the Mini Face Lift you may be about to undergo.
What are the Different Types of Face Lifts?
Each type of Face Lift you could have is designed for specific needs, and which one you have will be based on those needs. So whether it’s a Mini Face Lift or a Deep Plane Face Lift your rejuvenation needs can be met.
- Traditional Face Lift – Skin tightening with an incision from above the ear hairline, circling the ear to the hairline below it on the neck. Then pulling the skin back and removing any excess skin and underlying tissue.
- SMAS Face Lift – A re-suspension of facial muscles just below the skin.
- Deep Plane Face Lift – Cutting away some of the deeper cheek fats. Helps lessen “laugh lines”.
- Composite Face Lift – Same as Deep Plane Lift with the addition of the repositioning of some of the eyelid muscles.
- Mid Face Lift – Lifting and or repositioning the facial material between the cheeks.
- Thread Face Lift – Nominally invasive adjustments to the eyes, forehead, and nasolabial folds.
- Subperiosteal Face Lift – Used with the Traditional Face Lift in order to allow for longer lasting rejuvenation.
- Skin Only Face Lift – Pulling and excising of excess skin only. Usually only last 6-12 months.
The Mini Face Lift
I left our main reason for this article for last, so we can explore it in depth. The Mini Face Lift is basically a Traditional Face Lift with the exception of the skin on the neck not being involved.
- It is the least invasive type that produces similar results to a full face lift.
- Done on people who have deep nasolabial folds and sagging facial structures.
- Incision is from the hairline above the ear (sometimes called the “S” Lift due to incision shape.)
- More of a temporary fix to age issues.
- Has less downtime than other Face Lifts.
The Mini Face Lift is an excellent answer for those who are in need of:
- A quicker solution to looking younger
- A less invasive procedure.
- Less down time after the procedure.
- Still have good neck structure.
- Need more help around the eyes and nose.
As with any surgery, the Mini Face Lift has potential concerns and complications including, but not limited to:
- Hematomas (Bleeding under the skin and bruising)
- Nerve Damage (most common is to the greater auricular nerve near the ear)
- Necrosis (death of cellular tissue)
- Reaction to anesthesia (concern in all surgical procedures)
- Mini Facelift Scars
- Mini Facelift Cost

While the mini face lift seems like a good option if you don’t want to go all out or get such a radical surgery, it won’t last as long, right? I’d hate to have to get surgery more and more frequently as I get older. There are so many options out there these days.

You bring up an important issue Kimberly; can a particular type of Facelift be “redone”, and how often will I need it as time goes on. Each surgery and treatment are different. How long a Facelift lasts varies greatly depending on which procedure you choose. The research I’ve seen will not usually give a set answer to how often you can have surgery done. Thanks for your question Kimberly.
