Early signs of aging appear in the lower face as drooping jowls, sagging cheeks, and loss of definition in the jawline, but all can be wonderfully corrected through a strategic procedure known as a mini facelift. The surgery provides many of the same age-defying changes as a full facelift but with shorter incisions and less recovery time. Often Dr. Admire will combine the mini facelift in Scottsdale with other rejuvenating cosmetic treatments, such as fat grafting, laser skin resurfacing, or dermal fillers, to achieve comprehensive improvement in all areas. 

What is a mini facelift?

A mini facelift is a surgical procedure to combat early signs of aging in the lower third of the face. It can not only elevate sunken cheeks but can also reverse jowling and firm up the jawline, creating a more youthful-looking, attractive profile. Patients enjoy the mini facelift in Phoenix because of its limited incisions and expedited downtime.

What is Dr. Admire’s deep plane technique?

Traditional facelifts usually only elevate and reposition the skin and the Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System (SMAS). The AdmireMD Perfect Plane™ Face and Neck Lift addresses the tissues deep to the SMAS that are the true causes of facial aging. The Perfect Plane ® Deep Facelift addresses the deeper tissues that cause facial aging by repositioning, tightening or releasing the underlying muscles, fat pads, and retaining ligaments that traditional facelifts do not address to achieve a more successful rejuvenation of the face.  Therefore, the deep plane facelift lasts longer than other types of facelifts, providing a youthful, natural rejuvenation for 15-20 plus years.
