Will a facelift improve my marionette lines?

Many of my Houston facelift patients will come in asking what a facelift or neck lift will do for them. More specifically, which wrinkles and lines will it improve. The mini facelift or short scar facelift and the full facelift with neck lift will significantly improve the marionette lines or lines that extend down from the corner of the face. These lines will improve about 80% with a facelift. The smile lines or melolabial lines will improve about 20-30% with a facelift depending on the extent of dissection and the type of facelift (deep plane facelift will improve these). The fine lines in the cheek will improve as the deep muscle and fascia is lifted and suspended. The excess skin will then be removed leaving a smoother appearance to the skin.
