This patient had a facelift at the age of 51 because she was unhappy with her facial aging especially her jowl area. She had never done botox or facial fillers before this procedure. 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 re positioned. 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 (lower eyelid surgery) to remove the excess skin. This photo was taken 1 month after her surgery.
