I have a square-shaped face. Does a mini facelift or a facelift help?
All I know about normal facelifts is that they are usually done when the patient wants to address skin laxity, but this is not exactly my problem. I want to correct the shape of my jaw, and I'm thinking a mini facelift would do just that. I'm young, by the way. Anyone else in my shoes? Did any doctor recommend either of these two procedures to you?
I had a mini facelift. From what I understand, you can't change the shape of your jaw with a mini facelift alone. The mini facelift didn't treat my bone structure. The mini facelift just lifted my skin to accentuate the natural shape of my jaw. This treatment definitely caused my jaw to look smaller because it removed excess fat and hanging skin. I know that there's also something called jaw shaving that can adjust the jawbone. If you visit a highly qualified cosmetic surgeon, you could ask about having your jaw reshaped and combined with a mini facelift.
Lifting your skin with a mini facelift can reduce the appearance of your square jaw by removing excess skin and fat that may be hanging from age. During my consultation, the plastic surgeon gave me a few options that would provide me with the results that I was requesting. I wanted to treat the wrinkles and sagging skin below my cheekbones and along my jawline. My surgeon tailored the treatment to match my desires, and I am thrilled with the natural, more youthful appearance that I achieved.
