When having a discussion with my Houston facelift patients, I like to break the anatomy into three locations.The midface is the area of temple down to the below the cheek or malar area. The next area is the jawline and jowls and lower face. Lastly is the neck with skin laxity and banding. Not all patients require their midface addressed with a facelift as the fat pads there may not have descended as the jowls and neck may have. These types of patients may only require a deep plane lower face and neck lift.
