Many of my Houston facelift patients who are desiring improvment in their smile lines and flat cheeks are asking if a facelift will help these areas. This depends on the type of facelift. A deep plane facelift where the SMAS is elevated and the zygomatic ligament in the cheek is released, allows the SMAS to be lifted high suspending the cheek to its more youthful position. This creates a more cherubic cheek and flattens the smile lines.
