Question: I’m a 32-year-old stay at home mom who is interested in a facelift. I have seen reality shows about people that have a surprised look after surgery. What steps do you take to ensure a natural result?
Answer: It is very important to understand the vectors of pull performed in the facelift. This is important to make sure that the face is not over pulled and the eyes are not over pulled to create a wide-eyed, surprised look. It is also important when fixing the underlying tissues which provide the long-lasting results of the facelift to maintain a very natural position so this can create a natural look and the face does not have to be pulled to get the result that is desired.
