Latest Facelifting Techniques Include Fat Repositioning to Deliver More Youthful, Natural Results
TELLURIDE, CO Among the hot topics at this week’s American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) Annual Winter Symposium at The Peaks Resort was minimally invasive face lifting and restoration of facial volume — a new technique which helps to achieve a more youthful, long lasting result.
Among those lecturing at the symposium was Dual Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon Andrew Jacono, M.D., F.A.C.S. During his speech, entitled “Using Orbital and Buccal Fat Pad Repositioning to Complete Your Endoscopic Midface Lift,” Dr. Jacono addressed the increasingly popular pairing of endoscopic face lifts and fat repositioning, which yield improved, natural results.
Dr. Jacono performs endoscopic midface lifting, which utilizes only two small incisions in the hair line. This less invasive facelift technique, combined with the repositioning of the orbital and buccal fat pads (deep fat pads in the face) over the cheeks, hollows under the eyes and smile line areas, restores the youthful, heart shape face of those in their twenties.
“With age, the face deflates and loses volume. However, old face lifting techniques with larger incisions did not restore the youthful volume in the arc of the eyes and the cheeks,” he said. “The result was a sculpted look and scarring – the tell tale signs of plastic surgery.”
With more natural, long-lasting results, and a downtime of only five to seven days, patients can achieve a younger look without the invasiveness and sculpted looks of outdated facelifts.
