Midfacial Effects of the Deep-Plane Facelift
31 December 2001 (online)
Rejuvenation of the midface is a challenge in facial plastic surgery. To this end, several techniques have been developed to address the changes seen in the midface with aging. Specifically, ptosis of the malar fat pad and deepening of the nasolabial fold contribute to the aesthetic changes that characterize midfacial aging. The history of modern facelifts and deep-plane facelift techniques to correct the nasolabial fold are presented.
