Limited Incision Facelifts
The advantage to facial rejuvenation at a younger age is tissue is easier to return to normal position. Less surgery translates into more predictable results, lower complications rates, more rapid return to active lives, and a less conspicuous scar. Limited incision face lifts (S-lift, weekend lift) use smaller incisions just in front or just behind the outer ear. These procedures are more focused on tightening the midface and jowel area, rather than resuspending the tissues of whole jaw line and neck.
