• Numerous variations of the "standard" face-lift incision are used to achieve adequate exposure, skin redraping, and minimal scar deformity. Our incision technique is based on careful study of over 1,000 of our patients who underwent rhytidectomies. We believe that our technique allows the goals of rhytidectomy to be achieved with minimal morbidity.
