minifacelift or mini facelift is a minimally invasive procedure that is destined  to lift drooping skin on your face.

What are the benefits of a mini facelift?

The mini facelift (weekend facelift) is a rhytidectomy plastic surgery technique intended to enhance overall facial appearance thanks to the lifting and tightening of the skin and muscles in the face, cheeks and jaw. This minimally invasive procedure reduces sagging and wrinkles in the cheek and jawline area. With the newest techniques, you can achieve a younger natural look with fuller cheeks and a well-defined jaw line.

One of the main benefits of a mini facelift is that it requires a shorter recovery time.

Also, since mini facelifts are less invasive, the discomfort is minimal post-op.

Unlike a traditional more invasive facelift, mini facelifts can usually be performed using local anesthesia.

Lastly, since mini facelifts are less time consuming, complicated and do not require general anesthesia, the cost is significantly lower than that of a traditional facelift.
