Dr. Wayne Larrabee of The Larrabee Center for Plastic Surgery in Seattle, WA, is a provider who can educate patients on the many ways in which they can enhance their facial appearance with and without plastic surgery. Those who need to rejuvenate their appearance and address significant skin laxity may benefit from certain procedures, such as the mid-facelift.
What Is a Mid-Facelift?
A mid-facelift, also known as a mini facelift, is a standard cosmetic surgical procedure that is designed to provide facial rejuvenation. This type of surgery is more limited in scope than other types of facelifts in that it primarily focuses on the lower part of the face and does not involve any incisions or repositioning of the underlying muscles. The goal of this surgery is to reduce wrinkles and sagging skin around the cheeks, mouth and jawline (jowls) by tightening loose skin and removing excess fat from those areas. This procedure is often considered when alternative, nonsurgical treatments are no longer providing the results that an individual desires.
What Are the Benefits of the Mid-Facelift?
Mid-facelifts are typically less invasive than traditional full-facelifts and require shorter recovery times with minimal downtime for patients. This particular surgery can provide subtle yet effective results, giving you a more youthful and refreshed look. The procedure can also be customized to your individual needs, allowing for greater flexibility. In addition, since the surgery is less extensive than other facelift procedures, it typically has a lower cost associated with it.
How Do I Find Out More About the Mid-Facelift Procedure?
The mid-facelift surgery can be an excellent way to achieve facial rejuvenation without undergoing a more complex, full facelift procedure.
