In today’s world, highly marketed “Mini-Facelifts” frequently tout good results with a “shorter scar.” However, this claim is actually quite dubious because very often a “Mini-Facelift” incision is carried up onto the skin in front of the temporal hairline. Therefore, in reality, the length of the incision of a “Mini-Facelift” is often not meaningfully shorter and might actually be placed in a more visible location.


In addition, it can be more difficult to access deeper layers underneath the skin in areas such as the temporal region and neck. This can lead to a less rejuvenated, smooth or youthful appearance. Fortunately, advanced incision techniques have made it possible to create longer incisions that result in barely visible scars.
