Understanding The Short-Scar Facelift Technique

Face-lifts are among the most popular cosmetic procedures available and even more widely known is the short-scar facelift technique. This treatment can not only minimize the early signs of aging, but also improve your overall appearance. This particular procedure is known by a wide array of names including mini lift, limited-incision lift, or baby boomer facelift. Read on to find out more about this process.

The Short-Scar Facelift Technique

The short-scar technique emphasizes rejuvenation in the lower and central portions of the skin. If your skin has started to show the signs of aging and you want them removed, this technique can provide the look you desire. It is appropriate for those who do not have much skin around their neck and jaw line. The technique can be used in men and women alike and leaves a small post-surgical mark.

Among the various benefits provided by this procedure, this technique can smoothen out nasolabial folds and define the lower jawline. The post-surgical mark that results from this process is very small, making this treatment favored by many people over the conventional face lift procedure.

The connective tissue layer that is present in the facial region, which is also known by the name of superficial myoaponeurotic system (SMAS), is manipulated in the process. In some cases, neck liposuction is done with this treatment, but only in those cases where fat beneath the jaw needs to be removed. If you do not want to lose much of your skin, especially in the neck, then this face-lift technique is the best for you.

Why Choose the Short-Scar Facelift Technique Over The Traditional Facelift Procedure

The most significant advantage provided by the short-scar facelift technique over the traditional method if the length of the scar. As the name suggests, the short-scar facelift technique leaves behind a relatively shorter scar than the traditional technique.

The shorter recovery time associated with a short-scar facelift is another one of the reasons why people prefer it to the others. It is true that a surgery always comes with bruises and cuts but in this procedure you can return to your normal life within a very short period of time, which is not possible using the traditional facelift procedure.

The Benefits of the Short-Scar Facelift Technique

  • Loose skin folds that form near the cheeks and chin, also known as jowls, can be corrected with the help of short-scar facelift.
  • The definition and contours of your jawline will be greatly improved.
  • This risk of damaging the nerves of the face is minimized.
  • Your hairline will not be altered which is usually the case in other situations.

If you are in your 30s or 40s and looking for a safe way to rejuvenate your skin, the short-scar facelift technique is the perfect solution for you. Getting rid of puffy jaws and a wrinkled face has become much easier through this process. Try it for yourself and be amazed by the effect that it produces.
