A very popular procedure at our clinic is neck liposculpture (sometimes combined with fat transfer grafting to the cheeks). Until recently cosmetic facial surgery generally meant a traditional and formal surgical face-lift. This procedure requires a relatively large incision with open dissection, the tissue underlying the skin being surgically tightened and excess skin excised, leaving an extensive scar in front of the ear, into the scalp and around the back of the ear. Although some patients achieve an excellent outcome, too many patients end up with an unnatural “windswept” appearance in addition to a permanent scar. A face-lift could be considered to be “renovation” rather than “rejuvenation and beautification” of the face. Our aim is to re-contour the face and neck to conform with youthful aesthetic proportions.
