This patient felt that her sagging neck and jowls made her look heavier
and older than she really was. For this procedure she had a she had a
full facelift at the SMAS (sub-muscular aponeurotic system) layer, this
deeper layer is made of more inelastic, fibrous tissue that can hold the
tension when elevated and repositioned. This layer is key to a natural
appearing facelift as the overlying skin was then re-draped with minimal
tension, giving her the most natural results that best withstand the
test of time. Her incisions were made in the hairline and follow the
inside crease of her ear and behind her earlobe, making the scars hidden
and unnoticeable. She also had a lower blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery
to remove the excess skin that was brought up from the facelift and
liposuction to her neck to remove the excess fat. These photos were
taken 3 months after her surgery.
