Face Lift vs. Mini Lift, I often get asked if I do a mini facelift, so my response to that is always the same, that it just depends on what the individual needs. Each facelift is customized to fit the person who’s getting the procedure.
If someone has a lot of redundant skin and soft-tissue, then when you go to lift the deep muscle and resuspend all of that skin, there’s going to be a lot things to be removed and it cannot be removed through a little tiny incision.
The incision gets longer, depending on how much extra tissue there is to be removed.
That will dictate whether it’s truly a minilift or a full facelift.
