Facelift VS Mini Facelift: Procedure
In terms of the procedure, the mini facelift is not as extensive as a full facelift, as you may have anticipated. With the mini facelift, shorter incisions are used, and they tend to be located in the natural creases around your ears and/or along the hairline above the ears. Your structural tissue that is around the cheek area will be shored up, as this will correct jowling and redefine the jawline, as well as any skin laxity in the neck region being addressed. Of course, the exact treatment procedure for the full facelift is going to depend on the specific treatments that are incorporated into your facelift.
Facelift VS Mini Facelift: Recovery
Naturally, it will be much quicker to recover from a mini facelift than it will a full facelift, as the treatment is not as extensive. The recovery time for the TLC Mini Lift is a lot quicker than a lot of people realize, with downtime typically anywhere from a few days until one week. A facelift may take longer to recover from, with a lot of patients needing around two weeks to recover. However, it really does depend on the neck and facial treatments that are incorporated into your facelift, and this is something that Dr. Lanfranchi will discuss with you during your consultation.
Facelift VS Mini Facelift: Results
The results that you receive from a full facelift and a mini facelift can differ as well. However, both will provide long-term results, as they alter the skin and tissue on your face. With a mini facelift, you can expect the results to last around ten years before any top-up treatments are required. With a full facelift, it should be around 15 years until you need to have another one. Of course, the results will depend on how well you care for yourself and your skin after the facelift, so do keep this in mind.
