This patient wanted a facelift at the age of 55 because she was bothered by her sagging neck and eyes. 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 last the longest. 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 an upper and lower blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to remove the excess skin and give her eyes a more open and refreshed look. These photos were taken 2 months after her surgery.
