If you want to reverse signs of aging, you may be thinking of undergoing more extensive cosmetic surgical procedures, such as breast augmentation and facelifts. It is true that procedures like these can make you look a lot younger. But if you do not want to go that far, there are some less-invasive, less-extensive surgeries that can similarly reverse the signs of aging. 

1. Mini Facelift

If you feel like the skin on your face is loose and developing a lot of sagging, then instead of undergoing a traditional facelift, you might want to get a mini facelift. The effects are similar, yet less pronounced. Instead of making extensive incisions all along your hairline, your surgeon will make just two small incisions near your ears. If you need more tightening in the upper half of your face, they might also make two small incisions in your hairline near your temples.

The smaller incisions heal a lot faster than the larger incisions of a traditional facelift, and there is less pain involved. Sometimes with a mini facelift, you do not even need to have drains placed during healing; with a traditional facelift, there are always drains, which can be uncomfortable and burdensome.

2. Eyelid Surgery

Maybe it is just your eyelids that feel a little loose and saggy. In this case, rather than undergoing a full facelift, you can have what's known as eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty. You'll be amazed how much younger you look just by having the skin around your eyes tightened. There will be some pain involved in the healing process, but since the incisions are small, you'll heal pretty quickly, and there won't be big scars to hide.

3. Brow Lifts

The eyebrows are another region that sometimes experiences sagging, and tightening this area up can make your whole face look younger. The surgeon will often make a small incision above each eyebrow, where the scar will be easily camouflaged by the eyebrow hairs themselves. Your forehead may feel a little tight for a few weeks after this procedure, but this option far less invasive than a facelift.

4. Breast Lift

If your breasts seem to be losing volume or sagging, you might be considering breast augmentation. But a breast lift is much less-invasive and can do the job of reducing sagging without the need for implants. Basically, some skin will be removed from above the breast, lifting the breasts. They will look more voluminous simply because of this lifting.
