A short scar facelift or mini facelift is a type of facelift that addresses jowling and lax skin around the jawline. When performed as a deep plane mini facelift, the ligaments under the SMAS or muscle are released to get a better lift. This will also tighten the neck in patients with mild to moderate neck laxity. Those patients with significant neck laxity or banding may require a neck lift as well. The mini facelift or short scar facelift is performed as an outpatient and recovery is about 2 weeks.
