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.
