This 55 year old lady from Pittsburgh came into the office to address signs of aging, especially in the lower face and neck. She was unhappy with her sagging jowl, cheeks and neck. We discussed her expectations and agreed that a High SMAS Face and Neck Lift would be the best treatment option. The high SMAS facelift allows a very natural result the improvement not only in the neck and jowls, but also in the midface area. In my judgment a “miniface” type approach for this would have been inappropriate. These mini type facelifts, often presented as quicker (though the recovery is generally no faster), generally move the skin in an unnaturally vertical direction, resulting in a artificial appearance. This lady has sufficient aging in her neck to make a mini type approach incorrect.
