Facial aging is the result of gravitational pull of the facial muscles and loss of volume and thickness of the soft tissues of the face. These changes create folds, deep contours and shadows that make us look tired and older. The heart shape becomes square with jowls and loss of definition of the jawline. A mini Facelift restores a fresher and youthful appearance with minimal downtime and well hidden scars. This type of minimally invasive procedure is also referred to as short scar facelift and ponytail facelift.
