Making the decision to undergo any type of facial plastic surgery is one that requires careful consideration. During this process, it is understandable for patients to have questions and weigh the risks and benefits. Nowhere is this seen more frequently than in facelift surgery patients. Often, this leads to questions like, “Are mini facelifts worth it?”

Deciding whether a mini facelift is worth it is ultimately a personal decision. However, for patients experiencing the first signs of sagging, extra skin, and descending structures in the face, a mini facelift is a fantastic option. The operation is fairly low risk, especially when performed under local anesthesia. It also can prevent the need for a full facelift in the future. 

The only times a mini facelift may not be worth it is if a patient needs a full or extended facelift. Additionally, if the patient has a major health condition that makes surgery riskier, this may make Dr. Santos recommend other options. When it comes to your individual risk, Dr. Santos can evaluate this best during a consultation. 

In general, most patients and Dr. Santos considers a mini facelift worth it. The procedure is less extensive than a full facelift and often offers comparable if not better results.
