Keeping with our facelift theme for our vlogging series, we look at whether the perioral region changes after facelift surgery. Although a facelift can make visible changes to the face, the perioral region, which is the area around the mouth and lips, is rarely altered during the procedure. During a facelift, there are ligaments released around the mandible that allows the changes in the face. However, there is a limit to how much the lines caused by these ligaments can be altered which makes a facelift procedure ineffective for this particular area.
There is a case study provided showing a patient who chose to have a lower facelift procedure. There are photos showing examples of where her face shows visible signs of her skin being affected from sun damage. After the facelift procedure, although the patient had a lower face lift procedure performed, there were only improvements in the perioral region and jaw line. There wasn’t a complete change in the perioral region, however. For those looking for rejuvenation around the mouth and lip area, non-surgical treatments are better advised which can help to improve how the lines look around the chin and lips. Alternative treatments for improving lip and mouth lines are provided in more detail further in the video.
