When I have discussions with my Houston facelift patients, many may ask if their facelift will help diminish their smile lines. A facelift, especially a deep plane facelift will improve the marionette lines at the corner of the mouth. These will flatten along with tightening of the jawline and improvement of the jowls. However, one can only expect about 20-30% improvement in the smile lines or melolabial folds. This is true even for the deep plane facelift.
