How do I avoid that “pulled look” from a facelift?

Answer:

The “pulled look” is commonly the result of actually pulling on the skin to give the lift and pulling it too tightly. Some surgeons use the skin to “lift” the face in a supero-lateral vector. The skin is pulled tightly to try to elevate the deeper soft tissues and as a result distorts the face. I usually mobilize the deeper layers of the face to obtain the proper contour and then only remove the redundant skin as necessary. Back to Questions
