Can I Get a Mini Facelift Instead of a Full Facelift?

As we get older, our skin begins to lose its elasticity and fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots and pigmentation issues become more apparent. Each year, Americans spend millions on over-the-counter creams and serums that simply don’t provide much help.

Surgical procedures such as facelifts give patients the ability to correct numerous cosmetic concerns at one time. Facelifts are a safe and effective way to provide long-lasting facial rejuvenation for men and women of all ages.

A mini facelift or ‘weekend facelift’ consists of addressing mild changes due to minor aging. Small incisions are made to correct specific facial areas. These types of facelifts solely focus on the mid-face and do not repair damage to the forehead, neck, or eyes. To maintain results from a mini facelift, patients will need additional treatments every eighteen months or so.

When you undergo a full facelift, you’re getting a complete overhaul. The easily-concealable incisions allow your surgeon to reposition muscle, fat, and remove excess skin as needed. A full facelift is designed to correct moderate to severe facial concerns. Recovery time can be as little as 2-weeks and the results are incredibly long-lasting.

As you can see, there’s no substitution for the real thing. Mini facelifts, even when performed by a highly skilled surgeon, just don’t produce the same results. Traditional facelifts are a better investment time and money-wise for most patients.

It’s important to choose a cosmetic surgeon with a good deal of experience when opting for any surgical procedure. Seek a specialist such as Dr. Dorner in whichever area you’re having work done to ensure the best outcome possible and to minimize downtime.

Not only is Dr. Dorner board-certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery, but he sought out an additional residency program specific to facelifts. After being selected from a pool of hundreds of applicants, he had the rare opportunity to spend 1 year studying under the world-renowned master surgeon, John Q. Owsley, MD.

During that time, Dr. Dorner learned the most up-to-date surgical techniques including specific techniques that lead to remarkable results without giving patients a ‘stretched’ look or leaving them looking like someone else. His ultimate goal is to reveal his patient’s natural beauty through advanced aesthetic surgical means.

Perhaps that’s why many of his patients, including other doctors, travel cross-country to get Dr. Dorner’s expert facelifts. Even his staff puts their trust in his capable hands.

Dr. Dorner meets with each patient prior to surgery to discuss what they’d like to get out of the procedure. After a full facial evaluation, he’ll discuss the various surgical methods that may be the most beneficial. Together, he and the patient create a customized treatment plan to suit his or her individual needs.
