Fat Augmentation as Adjunct to CORE Facelift Surgery.

Capi C Wever

Facial Plast Surg 2021 Apr 3;37(2):224-232. Epub 2021 Feb 3.

Department of Otolaryngology, Head & Neck Surgery, Leiden University Medical Center, Albinusdreef, Leiden, The Netherlands.

Ruling out cases with strong jawlines, well-developed mid-cheek regions, and good fat presence, if done artistically, fat augmentation strongly assists midface definition and can replenish hollowed regions of the face. This is particularly true for candidates with low bodyfat or smaller skull structures. Hence, fat grafting is a strong adjunct to conventional excisional techniques in facial rejuvenation surgery, regardless of experience, technique, or geographical embedding. Read More

"Mirror Face Lift": Concept, Description, and Evaluation 1 Year Postoperatively.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2020 Mar 27;8(3):e2697. Epub 2020 Mar 27.

Private Clinic, Paris, France.

The mirror facelift is a new concept of mid-face rejuvenation that we apply during the preoperative consultation to explain and show the patient the possible results that can be achieved postoperatively and have this result stay stable over time and in different positions. It is characterized by (1) the use of a mirror during the preoperation visit and the taking of pictures from different angles, allowing for a precise analysis of the redistribution of the facial soft tissues on each hemi-skeleton; (2) the Divaris et al locked cheek lift technique (Locked Cheek-Lift), which is done with 2 vectors that achieve a tri-dimensional redistribution of the soft tissues; and (3) postoperative photographs which are very useful in precisely evaluating the results and comparing them with the preoperative pictures.

Methods: Two hundred and sixty patients (216 women and 44 men), average age 53 (34 to 73 years old), were operated on between 2010 and 2016, applying the concept of mirror lift in the consultation to show the patients the expected possible results after the surgery. Read More

C Le Louarn

Ann Chir Plast Esthet 2015 Oct 16;60(5):454-61. Epub 2015 Sep 16.

59, rue Spontini, 75116 Paris, France. Electronic address:

The asymmetry created by the facial palsy is of course a cause of demand for facelift surgery. As this lifting action is specific and different from the standard procedures, 3 zones of analysis are proposed: first the frontal and temporal areas with the direct eyebrow lift, second the neck and jawline with action on the depressor anguli oris for the non-paralyzed side and the anterior sub SMAS dissection and third the midface. A new and more simple technique of concentric malar lift is proposed. Read More

Handchir Mikrochir Plast Chir 2014 Aug 27;46(4):224-33. Epub 2014 Aug 27.

Plastic Surgery, Villa Bella Clinic, Saló, Italy.

In the last few years, surgery of the ageing face seems to have shifted from tissue uplifting and tightening to mere filling. We do not agree with this trend. We are positive that ageing brings about 2 basic phenomena: on one hand bone and fat volume reduction, whilst on the other a deterioration of the skin lining (elastosis) leading to an increase in its compliance and extension.
