With age, the face looses volume while skin loses elasticity. This causes facial skin dropping and an aged appearance. Dr. Yao has a custom approach to facelift that produces noticable yet natural results. She separately lifts the skin and a layer of tissue below the skin (the SMAS) to achieve several vectors of pull, which creates a more natural apperance. She includes neck liposuction and fat grafting when needed for facial contouring and volume loss.
