New York, NY | Mini Facelift | Lee Ann M. Klausner, MD, FACS

Lee Ann Klausner, MD is a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon. Watch her briefly explain a mini face lift. Learn about what the focus areas are, scarring and a comparison to a traditional face lift.


A mini-facelift might be considered a facelift that is performed with a more focused approach on the jawline and upper neck and the scar is a little bit shorter than a traditional facelift. But um the reason to perform a mini-lift versus a more traditional facelift has to do with the simple fact that some people present with more advanced aging than others and some more work needs to be done, the incision needs to be longer if there is a larger degree of extra skin and fat in the neck.
