Revision Rhytidectomy (face lift) and Lower Eyelid Revision Blepharoplasty


This patient in her 50s is 12 weeks following a revision rhytidectomy (face lift). She had undergone her first face lift approximately 7 years earlier by another surgeon.  She unfortunately developed one of the tell-tale signs of a face lift after her first surgery, namely, a pixie ear deformity where the earlobe is pulled down the face.  Notice in the after photo how her earlobe is in a much more natural position yet the patient retains a completely natural look.  The lower eyelids were also rejuvenated using an external incision which is essentially invisible this soon after surgery.  The patient has been very pleased with her results.
