3You may already be familiar with what a facelift is designed to do—elevate the soft tissues of the mid and lower face to a more youthful position. But are you also aware of the benefits of a mini facelift? If you have signs of aging in the mid-face, jawline, and neck, but they’re not advanced enough for a facelift, this innovative procedure may be right for you. Our double-board certified facial plastic surgeon typically performs this technique for patients in their 40s and 50s who are seeking a technique that sits between non-surgical cosmetic injectables and a full facelift.

Mini facelift goes by many names, including minimal incision and short incision facelift and S-lift. As you might have guessed, the incisions used are smaller than that of a full facelift, and the scars are often well-hidden behind the ears. The recovery is also often shorter. Through this procedure, the muscles and skin of the mid-facial area will be repositioned to a higher, more youthful location. This can help smooth deep creases and reduce skin laxity along the cheeks, jawline, and upper neck.

A mini facelift is not for everyone. We recognize that each patient is unique, with singular needs and goals. Dr. Brunner will work with you to find the ideal approach for your anatomic indicators and desired outcome.
