The Triple Facelift: Current Approach

Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 1991;117(1):47-53. doi:10.1001/archotol.1991.01870130053015

• The combination of deep temporal facelift, subpalpebral facelift, and cervicofacial facelift constitutes the triple facelift. It exerts vertical traction with anchorage to solid anatomical landmarks, which permits perfect correction of ptosis. In addition, since this traction affects the upper two thirds of the face, the malar detachment of the cervicofacial facelift is considerably reduced or even nonexistent. Only the cervical phase is retained to reestablish the cervicomental angle. This technique, therefore, has the advantage of improving the quality of the result and reducing the postoperative course.
