What's the difference between a facelift and a mini facelift?
A mini facelift is less invasive with a shorter recovery period, focusing on the neck and lower part of the face. A traditional facelift is a more comprehensive procedure that addresses a wider range of the face and neck, achieving more dramatic results.
How many years does a facelift last?
A facelift generally lasts at least ten years.

Is 65 too old for a facelift?
As long as the patient is healthy enough for surgery, individuals who are of 65 and older can greatly benefit from a facelift.
Which is better, facelift or BOTOX?
Depending on your unique needs and goals, either of these treatments may be best for you. A facelift addresses significant sagging skin and tissues and replaces lost volume, while BOTOX is designed solely to temporarily relax the muscles that are causing wrinkles.
Will you need BOTOX after a facelift?
Because a facelift is generally designed to address the mid and lower areas of the face, for wrinkles in the forehead, BOTOX will still be needed. A browlift can be performed at the same time as a facelift to achieve a long-lasting, complete facial rejuvenation.
Does a facelift include the neck?
A facelift addresses the neck as well at the lower two-thirds of the face.
