The patient, shown here in a 3/4 (oblique) view, received a deep plane face lift, which is similar to a traditional face lift, but also repositions the patient's cheek fat to a more youthful height. In other words, a traditional face lift addresses mainly the neck and jawline (lower face), whereas the deep plane face lift also helps to lift a sagging cheek/mid-face area.
The patient also received dermabrasion in the perioral (around the mouth) region. Face lift and dermabrasion were performed by facial plastic surgeon Jacob Steiger, MD.
