How Can I Avoid Getting a Pulled Up Look from a Face Lift?
The best way to achieve a natural result in face lift surgery is to approach things in a balanced way.
- There should not be excessive pulling on the skin during surgery. The lifting should be accomplished by repositioning the underlying SMAS and muscles rather than relying on the skin to do all the work.
- The loss of facial volume contributes to sagging of the facial skin. The face can be compared to a table and table cloth. As the table shrinks, there is a relative excess in table cloth and it has no where to go but down. Supporting the table by re introducing facial volume via fat injections or fillers goes a long way in smoothing out excess skin (table cloth). Less surgical lifting is needed during the face lift creating a more balanced natural result.
