A mini-facelift addresses gravitational aging in the midface and lower face. The incisions around the ear are shortened and some surgeons refer to this procedure as a “short scar facelift.” This procedure is ideal for younger patients in their 40s or 50 where gravitational aging is minimal and neck contour is satisfactory.
