Abstract
While early results with conventional facelifts and blepharoplasties are us ually acceptable in the early period, many patients eventually develop unat tractive and unwanted signs of the facelifted appearance. Composite rhytide ctomy includes two distinct differences from conventional techniques; the v ector for the facelift is superior-medial instead of lateral, and the lower eyelid fat is preserved. The unfavorable signs of facelift surgery hollow eyes, and the lateral sweep, can be corrected effectively by using these pr inciples when patients undergo secondary facelift surgery.
