How it is done
Every part of the face ages differently, and requires slightly different cosmetic procedures to make it look young again. For the forehead, there’s the brow lift. There are different types of blepharoplasty for the upper and lower eyelids. And for the midface area, there’s the deep plane minituck, which corrects not just sagging skin, but loss of volume caused by deposits of fat shrinking and migrating down.
How to know if you should get a minituck
You might be a good candidate for a deep plane minituck if the skin around your mouth and neck is lax. This should only be caused by skin and muscle, not by excess fat under the neck, looseness of the glands or both. The endotine face lift is an alternative that involves absorbable implants under the skin. The effect is only short-term. Injections of fat are another way of restoring volume. A facial plastic surgeon can tell you which procedure is right for you.
