It is not uncommon to see patients with bizarre outlines following facial surgery. That is not always the surgeon’s fault. Lifting aged, thinned skin over a shrunken bone frame inevitably leads to the dreaded wind tunnel look. The post-surgical jawline seems to aim straight for the earlobe, accentuating the loss of the jaw angle. The jaw looks like an “I” instead of a more youthful “L”.
Restoring facial harmony in those patients via the judicious placement of fillers is just one of our many rewarding interventions.
