Gravity. What an effect it can have on aging skin. Unfortunately, a sagging jawline is no exception. Your jaw is one of the three areas gravity is constantly working against. Not to mention, our skin has already betrayed us by age 20 when it starts to thin. By the time we hit 40, we can start seeing wrinkles and sagging skin in the lower face. Around 50, we start losing bone, fat and muscle in the jaw area.
Monarch Mini Facelift
Luckily, we have the Mini Facelift for measures like these. It removes wrinkles, reduces or eliminates jowls, and tightens sagging skin from the face and neck. It can restore definition to the chin and give a more youthful appearance. Incisions are made in the natural creases around the ears and hairline, making them well-hidden. The beauty of the Mini Facelift is that it has little down time, no pain, little to no scars and a natural look. This procedure received a 94 percent “Worth It” rating on Real Self.
Difference Between Mini Facelift and Facelift
Primarily, the Mini Facelift targets the cheeks and jowls and not the upper face. Another main difference is the Monarch Mini Facelift is performed under local anesthesia with oral pain medication in-office. Also known as the “Weekend Facelift,” it is minimally invasive and can be completed in a few hours. While it won’t have the full effects of a facelift on the entire face, the Monarch Mini Facelift will have a quicker recovery time and shorter scar.
Who is a Candidate
If you’ve ever said, “I just want a little lift here,” this surgery could be for you. Patients with larger amounts of excess skin around the neck to be removed may opt for a full facelift or a neck lift. One of our board-certified plastic surgeons can present you with the right options for you.
