Abstract:   (796 Views)
The demand for facial plastic surgery has dramatically been increased in recent years. Over the last decade, numerous methods have been improved for facelift surgery. Despite these modifications, skin excision technique has not changed significantly. In this study, authors have tried to introduce a new technique regarding skin excision at the initial step of facelift surgery.
A prospective study from 2012 to 2017 on 52 patients was carried out to apply a new technique for facelift ‘’Prefabricated skin excision method’’ for all eligible patients undergoing facelift surgery. The skin calling for excision was marked by the surgeon, and then, an analgesic drug was administered. Then, excision of the marked part of the skin was performed and afterward the dissection of the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) was performed with the direct exposure. 
All patients were female, and 50 (96.1%) cases were primary face lift and 2 (3.9%) cases were secondary. There were no complications among the patients. 
Facilitating the manipulation of deep layer, using this technique led to the further exposure of the surgical site, and more preferable hemostasis was achieved as well.
Keywords: Face lift, Rhytidectomy, Facial cosmetic surgery
