Nasolabial folds still present after facelift
Now that swelling has gone down, I just noticed the nasolabial line has already come back (although it’s reduced). Worse, when I smile, all the folds I hoped would be gone are still there.
In short, when I smile, I look exactly as I did prior to surgery.
Did my surgeon not pay attention to this area enough?
Or is this just a result of my facial structure?
I have significant vertical maxillary excess, which may be the root cause of my smile looking as it still does.
Curious if I should see my surgeon about this, if any revision is called for?
