What is a Weekend Facelift?

Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery
for NYC, Manhattan & Worldwide


When considering your facelift options in New York City, you want to choose the procedure that is right for your specific needs. There’s no need to undergo a more extensive facelift than you really need.

That’s why JUVA Skin & Laser Center offers our patients the option of a mini-facelift, also known as a weekend facelift.

Put in the simplest way, a weekend facelift is less extensive and addresses fewer problem areas than a full, traditional facelift procedure. The incisions are smaller, the recovery is shorter and the entire experience is less intrusive.

A mini-facelift is usually used to address sagging skin around the cheeks, jawline and neckline. The appearance of jowls is often one of the first signs of aging and wear on your face, and they can be unsightly.

With a mini-facelift, we can eliminate this sagging skin and give you a tighter, more youthful facial appearance.

The work of a mini-facelift is performed below the skin, leaving the muscles untouched. This shortens recovery times, but does mean you won’t see the more dramatic results of the traditional facelift procedure. Incisions fade naturally into your skin creases, and results are long-lasting.

We frequently perform mini-facelifts in conjunction with liposuction around the neck in order to give you a sharp, defined jawline. We’ll discuss your options with you and make sure you get the procedures you need to safely achieve your goals.
