If you are in your late 30s or early 40s, you may have noticed subtle changes in your face. Your cheeks may not be as firm, you may have developed some marionette lines around your mouth and your chin and jawline may not be as sharp as you remember. You may be switching your skin care choices in favor of those promising to restore your youth, thinking you are not yet a candidate for a facelift. Nothing could be further from the truth. A mini-facelift may be the perfect solution for early intervention in younger patients.
Why a Mini-Facelift Can Work For You
Mini-facelifts can address the earliest signs of aging in the lower face. Although it uses similar techniques to regular facelifts, the incisions are smaller and the results are noticeable, but not in the “had work done” kind of way. In fact, people will likely wonder what you are doing differently to keep your skin looking so great, but never guess you visited a plastic surgeon.
Mini-facelifts are also perfect for younger patients because there is less recovery time compared to a traditional facelift. It can keep the signs of aging at bay for many years, and is a repeatable surgery. A skilled surgeon can determine if the mini-lift is right for you, and the results will appear completely natural.
Combine Procedures for Optimum Results
The mini-facelift treats the early signs of aging in the lower face; but to address other problem areas, the mini-lift is often combined with upper face procedures. A forehead lift will smooth out horizontal wrinkles and slightly raise the eyebrows. Many patients opt to add blepharoplasty and address the sagging skin causing their hooded eyes. Combining the procedures will give you the best results, leaving you looking well-rested, toned and incredible for your age.
If you are between the ages of 35-45 and not yet ready for a full facelift, but want a more youthful appearance, book an appointment with Dr. Vecchio and see what a mini-facelift can do for you. Contact Boston’s Back Bay Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation.
