A full facelift targets the area from your eye area to the jaw and a mini facelift is more focused to the lower half of your face. The incisions used with a mini facelift are also smaller so the recovery time is often reduced slightly.
Facelift General Procedure
Contradictions may include high blood pressure, diabetes, lung or heart disease and bleeding disorders as these can increase your risk for complications. A full medical history will be taken at your consultation and your full suitability will be discussed with your surgeon.
Your consultation is your time with the surgeon to discuss your desired outcome of surgery, ask any questions you may have prepared and go through the surgical procedure talking through any concerns that you might have. We also suggest bringing along some photographs of your younger-self as many of our patients do not want to look different, just younger and this is the best way for your surgeon to physically see how you face has changed as you have got older and work out the best way to give you the results that you want.
