45-54 year old woman treated with Facelift
This patient was unhappy with an aging face. A plan was agreed upon for a Facelift. A low oblique plication of the SMAS was performed giving excellent lift to the nasolabial and marionette lines. The jawline and platysma were also nicely tightened. The patient was noted to have a long upper lip with no dental show. Upper lip shortening procedure was performed at the nasal sill with a 3.5 mm resection of the skin. A nice elevation of the upper lip was achieved allowing for 3 mm of dental show.
