The Facial Fat Compartments Revisited: Clinical Relevance to Subcutaneous Dissection and Facial Deflation in Face Lifting.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 11;144(5):1070-1078

Miami, Fla.; and Dallas, Texas From the Institute of Aesthetic Medicine and the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute.

The facial fat compartments were described over a decade ago, but their clinical relevance to both deflation and techniques in facial rejuvenation is underappreciated. Although much of the literature following their description has focused on further anatomical elucidation of compartment anatomy, clinical relevance has focused on volumetric compartment augmentation. From the authors' perspective, understanding compartmentalization of facial fat provides an anatomical roadmap of the facial subcutaneous plane and a patient-specific guide for the degree of skin flap dissection in facial rejuvenation.

Optimal Facelift Vector and its Relation to Zygomaticus Major Orientation.

Aesthet Surg J 2020 Mar;40(4):351-356

private facial plastic surgery practice in New York, NY.

Background: The vector of superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) redraping in rhytidectomy is often described in relation to the zygomaticus major muscle (ZMM), so that suspension prevents distortion of the mimetic musculature and a "facelifted appearance." There are no data describing the true orientation of this muscle in the midface.

Objectives: The aim of this study was to define the vector of the ZMM relative to the Frankfort horizontal plane. Read More

Deep Plane Facelift: An Evaluation of the High-SMAS versus Standard Incision Points.

Facial Plast Surg 2018 Dec 4;34(6):646-650. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Division of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Head and Neck Surgery, University of California, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California.

In surgery of the aging face, operative adjustments of the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) enhance facial contours. The senior author has observed that the standard deep plane face lift entry points on the SMAS do not provide as much tissue movement in a vertical direction as high-SMAS deep plane face lift entry points. In this study, tissue movement was measured comparing the conventional SMAS entry point with a high-SMAS entry point for deep plane face lifts. Read More

Neck Contouring Without Rhytidectomy in the Presence of Excess Skin.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2018 Apr 22;42(2):464-470. Epub 2017 Dec 22.

, Cleveland, OH, 44124, USA.

Background: Patients with severe neck skin laxity due to excess submental adipose tissue have required either standard rhytidectomy or direct excision of neck skin with Z-plasty and submental lipectomy. Our recent experiences with four patients who declined cervicofacial rhytidectomy demonstrate that submental lipectomy and platysmarrhaphy appear to obtain sufficient improvement.

Methods: The submental area, submandibular area, and lateral neck are injected with local anesthetic. Read More

Temple and Postauricular Dissection in Face and Neck Lift Surgery.

Arch Plast Surg 2017 Jul 15;44(4):261-265. Epub 2017 Jul 15.

The Chula Soft Cadaver Surgical Training Center and Department of Anatomy, Faculty of Medicine, Chulalongkorn University and King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, Bangkok, Thailand.

Periauricular paresthesia may afflict patients for a significant amount of time after facelift surgery. When performing face and neck lift surgery, temple and posterior auricular flap dissection is undertaken directly over the auriculotemporal, great auricular, and lesser occipital nerve territory, leading to potential damage to the nerve. The auriculotemporal nerve remains under the thin outer superficial fascia just below the subfollicular level in the prehelical area. Read More

Characterization of the Cervical Retaining Ligaments During Subplatysmal Facelift Dissection and its Implications.

Aesthet Surg J 2017 05;37(5):495-501

Assistant Professor of Facial Plastic Surgery, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, NY, USA.

Background: The cervical retaining ligaments anchor the platysma and soft tissues of the neck to the deep cervical fascia and deeper skeletal structures. The cervical retaining ligaments tether the platysma and prohibit free mobilization and redraping of the platysma muscle in rhytidectomy. This ligament system has previously been described in the literature only qualitatively. Read More

A Novel Approach to Submandibular Gland Ptosis: Creation of a Platysma Muscle and Hyoid Bone Cradle.

Arch Plast Surg 2016 Jul 20;43(4):374-8. Epub 2016 Jul 20.

Department of Otolaryngology, Temple University Hospital, Philadelphia, PA, USA.; Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Submandibular gland ptosis is a common impediment to obtaining superior surgical aesthetic results in neck lift surgery. Techniques for suspending the submandibular gland have been proposed, but these procedures have the drawbacks of disturbing the floor of the mouth mucosa and periosteum. We present an approach of submandibular gland suspension for the treatment of gland ptosis by employing a platysma and hyoid bone fascia cradle. Read More

Total Composite Flap Facelift and the Deep-Plane Transition Zone: A Critical Consideration in SMAS-Release Midface Lifting.

Authors:
Marc Mani

Aesthet Surg J 2016 May 1;36(5):533-45. Epub 2016 Mar 1.

Dr Mani is a plastic surgeon in private practice in Beverly Hills, CA.

Background: Recent anatomic studies suggest the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) layer attenuates in the midface. This led the author to switch from a bilamellar high SMAS dissection to a "total composite flap" technique, preserving skin and SMAS/platysma as one layer in a critical "deep-plane transition zone" (DTZ) lateral to the zygomaticus major muscle. This allows traction on the SMAS to translate to the malar fat pad via a "cantilever bridge" effect, which is lost when skin is undermined in the DTZ. Read More

Ear, Nose, & Throat Surgeons of Western New England, Springfield, Massachusetts.

Rhytidectomy techniques have evolved significantly since the procedure's introduction in the early 20th century. Significant advancements in rhytidectomy techniques occurred in the 1960s and 1970s with the description of the subfascial rhytidectomy, the identification of the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS), and development of the SMAS flap. The incorporation of fascial undermining and suspension techniques have significantly improved the longevity and natural appearance of the facelift operation. Read More

The authors' vertical neck lifting procedure is an extended deep plane facelift, which elevates the skin and SMAS-platysma complex as a composite unit. The goal is to redrape cervicomental laxity vertically onto the face rather than laterally and postauricularly. The authors consider this an extended technique because it lengthens the deep plane flap from the angle of the mandible into the neck to release the cervical retaining ligaments that limit platysmal redraping.

The extended SMAS approach to neck rejuvenation.

Facial Plast Surg Clin North Am 2014 May;22(2):253-68

Meridian Plastic Surgery Center, 170 West 106th Street, Indianapolis, IN 46290-0970, USA.

Jowling, submental lipoptosis, and platysmal banding can affect self-image and reduce quality of life, leading one to seek facial and neck rejuvenation. With realistic expectations, a facelift can provide the desired improvement in appearance and sense of well-being. Before any intervention, a detailed history, focused examination, communication of expected outcomes with the assistance of preoperative digital imaging, and discussion of perioperative instructions are of utmost importance.

The modern minimally invasive face lift: has it replaced the traditional access approach?

Facial Plast Surg Clin North Am 2013 May;21(2):171-89

Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, North Shore University Hospital, Manhasset, NY, USA.

Because modern facelift patients desire a less-invasive approach or minimally invasive approach to reduce visible scarring and decrease the recovery phase, achieving the surgeon's goal of optimal, reliable, and long-term aesthetic results with few complications becomes a challenge. The authors use the terms minimal access and traditional access to describe rhytidectomy approaches based solely on incision size. A short-incision, minimal-access approach with a deep-plane extended dissection is presented. Read More

The transconjunctival deep-plane midface lift: a 9-year experience working under the muscle.

Aesthet Surg J 2012 Aug;32(6):692-9

Chicago Medical School, Rosalind Franklin University, North Chicago, Illinois, USA.

Background: Rejuvenation of the midface with a natural-looking, safe, and long-lasting result is a challenge in aesthetic surgery. The ideal approach should be easy to perform, with minimal risk and significant benefit. The combination of transconjunctival exposure and preservation of the periosteum may result in lower morbidity than traditional midface rejuvenation. Read More

Anatomical comparison of platysmal tightening using superficial musculoaponeurotic system plication vs deep-plane rhytidectomy techniques.

Arch Facial Plast Surg 2011 Nov-Dec;13(6):395-7

Division of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, North Shore University Hospital, Long Island Jewish Medical Center, New Hyde Park, USA.

Objectives: To quantify the degree of submental platysmal tightening that can be accomplished with superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) plication vs deep-plane rhytidectomy techniques in a cadaveric anatomical study to help dictate the need for midline platysmal surgery when using different rhytidectomy techniques.

Methods: The lateral distraction of the medial edge of the platysma muscle was measured during tightening of the SMAS-platysmal complex on 5 cadaver heads. The measurements were taken after the following 3 rhytidectomy techniques: SMAS-platysmal plication, deep-plane rhytidectomy, and extended deep-plane rhytidectomy continuing the flap below the angle of the mandible into the neck with release of the platysma and cervical retaining ligaments.

The minimal access deep plane extended vertical facelift.

Aesthet Surg J 2011 Nov;31(8):874-90

North Shore University Hospital, Manhasset, New York, USA.

Background: Modern facelift techniques have benefited from a "repopularization" of shorter incisions, limited skin elevation, and more limited dissection of the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) and platysma in order to shorten postoperative recovery times and reduce surgical risks for patients.

Objectives: The authors describe their minimal access deep plane extended (MADE) vertical vector facelift, which is a hybrid technique combining the optimal features of the deep plane facelift and the short scar, minimal access cranial suspension (MACS) lift.

Methods: The authors retrospectively reviewed the case records of 181 patients who underwent facelift procedures performed by the senior author (AAJ) during a two year period between March 2008 and March 2010. Read More
