Among the most commonly requested types of minimally invasive cosmetic surgery that is performed at the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, the Mini Facelift is a solution for wrinkles, lines and sagging skin that forms on the lower third area of the face. Using small incisions made around the ears, this effective procedure reestablishes definition to the chin by taking away excessive tissue and tightening up the remaining skin tissue.
