Our 72-year young patient was so pleased 2 years after her extended deep plane facelift that she wanted to share her results and positive experience. A common finding after mini and traditional SMAS facelifts is that the cheeks are not sufficiently lifted leaving residual laxity in the jowls and neck. At the same time, the skin is often overly tightened. The laxity is not due to excess skin and so performing another SMAS facelift will not address her current concerns and exacerbate the skin tightness.
It is only through an extended deep plane facelift, where the deep facial structures and ligaments are released allowing for vertical lifting. Patient also had fat grafting. Note the natural contours in her cheeks, jawline and neck which have persisted for two years. All excess skin tension from the previous SMAS facelift has been relaxed and her scars revised.
