What is a short-scar facelift?
A short-scar facelift, or limited-incision facelift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to rejuvenate both the central and lower portions of the face and the neck through a short incision that results in firmer, younger-looking skin and little-to-no scarring.
Limited-incision facelift is performed to address nasolabial folds or deep creases between the cheeks and the upper lip; reduce the appearance of jowls, or loose skin that develops along the jawline and in-between the cheeks and chin, and provide a natural, yet defined contour the lower jawline and neck.
To address excessive fatty tissues located underneath the jaw, neck lift surgery may be recommended as a procedure supplementary to the short-scar facelift. When combined with procedures such as chin surgery, cheek augmentation, and eyelid surgery, the short-scar facelift can help patients turn back the hands of time.
This type of facelift is ideal for patients who seek to refine features located within the central and lower portions of the face, such as around the cheeks and near the jawline but do not have a significant portion of loose skin around the neck.
