How is a mini facelift surgery performed?

Is it local anesthesia, and you are awake the whole time?

A mini-facelift usually involved only a limited dissection and repositioning of the facial tissues as compared with a full facelift.  It is debatable that mini-facelifts are effective at al (i.e. "mini-facelift"  = "mini-result").  That said, they can be done under local anesthesia or general anesthesia.
