How do you avoid an overly taut or pulled look from a facelift?
Overly taut and pulled results from a facelift occur when incorrect vectors of tension are placed on the skin and SMAS and also from tension being placed on the skin. When performing a proper facelift some type of elevation of the fascial layer of the face called the SMAS needs to occur. There are different techniques to deal with this layer, the SMAS, but the direction of pull needs to be appropriate. No tension should be placed on the skin in a facelift. Placing tension on the skin only results in a pulled look and creates widened noticeable scars.
