THE DECEMBER SURGERY SPOTLIGHT features Dr. Rod Rohrich performing a Secondary Facial Rejuvenation procedure on a 62-year-old Caucasian woman. The patient presents with significant loss of fat in her face, a tight skin envelope, and some laxity in her neck. Dr. Rohrich’s technique involves a lift-and-fill approach to correct facelift deformities:removing and relocating existing scars; releasing the malpositioned deep layers; refilling the depressed temporal areas and the deep malar fat compartments with harvested fat; and re-draping and re-shaping the deep layers and reshaping the final skin layers. Watch the full-length surgery on PSEN now.
