I am a 25-year-old woman with two children. I have heard the term weekend facelift and would definitely be interested in something quick and easy. What exactly is this and is it safe?

First, if you are 25 years old, I question whether any type of facelift would be the appropriate option for you. I would encourage you to seek out a consultation so that we may further discuss your concerns and I can make further recommendations.

That said, the weekend facelift is a modification of a more traditional facelift. A traditional facelift usually would incorporate treatment of the areas of the brow as well as the cheek/mid face, the jowl region and the neck region.

The weekend facelift incorporates a smaller incision to address specific areas of the face and neck, namely the jowl region and the neck line. This “weekend facelift” or “minimally invasive facelift procedure” is very safe and, when performed appropriately, can provide long-lasting, natural results.
