NYC plastic surgeon explains a mini facelift

Facelifts are a great way for patients to reduce the signs of aging and restore a more youthful appearance. As patients age, they may notice that they have sagging skin, loss of volume in the face, and deal with fine lines and wrinkles throughout. They may be unhappy with their jowls or neckline, and want a younger, more defined appearance.

While full facelifts can be costly and quite invasive, there is another alternative for individuals who have specific areas of the face and neck that they want to address; the mini facelift. NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Kwan of Edmund Kwan, M.D. offers mini facelifts for those who want a less costly, less invasive treatment.

Mini facelifts are done in a way to target certain areas of the face at a lower cost. While they cannot target the forehead or eyebrow area as a traditional facelift can, they are able to address the mouth, nose, jowls, jawline, and neck with minimal scarring. This is typically done for younger patients who are experiencing the first signs of aging and want to maintain their youthful appearance without the recovery time and extensive risks that come along with a full facelift.

Known as the “weekend facelift,” mini facelifts can provide great results with less recovery time and fewer risks than traditional treatments. It can also be complemented afterwards with dermal fillers and injectables to complete the transformation. Dr. Kwan can discuss with patients the best course of action to take to improve the areas of the face that are bothersome to the patient. There may be a variety of treatments to consider, giving the patient options to meet their desires and budget. By having an experienced plastic surgeon on your side, you can make an educated decision regarding your treatments.

Dr. Kwan has over 15 years of experience providing plastic surgery, and is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Dr. Kwan has been able to provide hundreds of patients the ability to improve the way they look and restore their youthfulness with a variety of treatments. If you are interested in learning more about plastic surgeries and how they can assist in the rejuvenation of your face and body, then contact Edmund Kwan, M.D. today!
