Facelift: Q&AAsk a Question
No Subcataneous Fat Between Facial Skin and SMAS, Have any of You Seen this Before?
I recently had a facelift. When my Plastic Surgeon lifted the skin, he found no subcataneous fat layer between the skin and the muscle. NONE! In his 30 years of practise he had never encountered this.I wondered if any of the plastic surgeons that contribute to this site have ever seen this in their surgeries? And if so, why would this occur? I never smoked, drink only an occassional glass of wine. I am 5'6" weight 120, mid 50's post menopausal,no health problems but had cosmetic laser treatments
