3 Things that Sets Korean Mini Face Lift apart from Traditional Face Lift
Face lift (or rhytidectomy), along with botox and dermal fillers is among the common Korean anti-aging treatment methods. But, there is also a variation to this, called the mini face lift; it is also known as the “weekend facelift”.
Mini face lift is a relatively new technique and its appeal lies at the fact that it can be performed very quickly. It also involves a shorter recovery period than your standard, regular face lift in Korea
For the traditional face lift, stitches are only removed after a week and there will be apparent bruising for approximately two weeks. Besides that, there may also be a feeling of numbness that may last for months. In the case of a mini face lift, the bandage can be taken off after 48 hours.
Tackles Specific areas vs. Entire face
While the traditional, face lift procedure involves the entire face, the mini face-lift focuses on certain areas; it mainly involves the neck and jawline, though it is not limited to this -- the folds of the nose, for instance, is another targeted area.
Who Should Undergo a Mini Face Lift?
Generally, those who are in their 30s or 40s, and are experiencing the first signs of aging, may want to consider undergoing the Korean mini face lift rather than a more invasive, traditional face lift procedure. For those with more prominent sagging issues, the traditional face lift is the better option.
