Q: What are the different types of facelifts?

A: “A traditional facelift rejuvenates the lower third of the face, the jawline and neck area. It’s a very meaningful operation for people who have a lot of neck laxity, loose hanging skin and prominent jowls. The mini-lift is for people with the early signs of aging and mild neck laxity,’ says facial plastic surgeon Dr. Myra Danish, M.D., F.A.C.S.

“My one-hour Lunchtime Lift is a version of a mid-face lift. We rejuvenate the ‘triangle’ that includes the lower eyelids, cheeks, laugh lines, and jowls,” Dr. Danish explains. “In general, I recommend the minimum procedure that will give the best, natural results based on the patient’s anatomy, skin type and aging.”
