There is more than one type of facelift, and for good reason. Aging and other factors affect everyone differently, and that means that there is no one-size-fits-all procedure when it comes to facial rejuvenation.

Having techniques that address specific areas of the face and others that provide more comprehensive benefits makes it easier for plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Edward Kole to deliver personalized results.

The Short-Scar Facelift

A short-scar facelift is a quicker version of a facelift that is less intensive but still highly effective. Also known as a mini-facelift, the procedure focuses on addressing two of the biggest causes of aesthetic facial issues: sagging skin and loose facial muscles.

One of the key differences between a short-scar facelift and a traditional facelift is the length of the incisions used for the procedure. As you can tell by the name, the short-scar facelift use significantly smaller incisions in order to avoid having noticeable post-surgical scars.

Is a Short-Scar Facelift Right for Me?

Generally speaking, a short-scar facelift is the ideal choice for individuals who are showing the early signs of aging. A traditional facelift is better suited for handling severe facial folds and sagging and an aging neck and jowls.

A short-scar facelift is an excellent option for anyone with noticeable sagging and wrinkling that cannot be properly treated using non-surgical rejuvenation methods. Younger patients with noticeable folds between the nose and the mouth or those who have lost a noticeable amount of facial volume in their cheeks should consider getting a short-scar facelift.
