The mean age of the patients was 55 years old (31-88). All patients underwent the same procedure (94 women and six men) (Figs. 45.10-45.14). An associated necklift was performed in 55 patients. This procedure was the first facelift in 84 patients.
Patients were checked up the day after surgery, at 2 weeks to remove residual threads and at 3, 6 and 9 months. At 1 year, they were clinically evaluated. Patients with unfavourable evolution were seen every week until total satisfaction was achieved.
The recovery period was evaluated by the patient between 3 and 4 weeks as being able to be socially re-introduced with a subnormal or normal appearance without sunglasses.
