A l’examen, nous constatons en effet une région jugale relâchée responsable de l’apparition des plis d’amertumes aux coins inférieurs des lèvres. Nous notons également un ovale du visage qui apparaît interrompu et flasque surtout en regard de la région mandibulaire.  

Cette patiente a bénéficié d’un demi lifting du visage avec la  résection d’un croissant de peau excédentaire en avant de l’oreille et une remise en tension du SMAS. Cette Before the intervention a permis de redonner à la région jugale une tonicité naturelle avec une disparition complète des plis d’amertume et  une redéfinition de l’ovale du visage.
