WHAT IS A FULL FACELIFT AND WHEN IS IT RECOMMENDED VERSUS A MINI-LIFT?
“A full facelift is extensive surgery that involves the face below the eyelids, as well as the jawline and neck. It gives the best result possible,” says facial plastic surgeon Dr. Myra Danish, M.D., F.A.C.S.
“Generally, a full facelift is recommended if you have a lot of hanging skin in the mid-portion of the neck, you have heavy jowls, and your neck doesn’t have a sharp angle under the chin,” she explains. “A mini-lift is a short version of a facelift and is recommended for people who have early signs of aging with minimal jowling and looseness in the neck. Both surgeries are ideal for the appropriate candidates.”
