In general, Oriental people have thicker facial skin with more subcutaneous adipose tissues than Caucacian people. These differences result in characteristic Oriental aging face combined with squared facial contours. Conventional face lift essentially consists of facial wrinklinges and reducing flaccidity of facial skin but squared facial contouring is not considered. Flat and squared face can be improved by reduction malarplasty and mandibular angleplasty, thoses are the common facial bone contouring surgeries performed in the Orient. If patients, who have aging face, also have flat and squared face, it is necessary to be performed face lift and facial bone contouring surgery simultaneously. We have experienced 18 cases of patients with aging face and squared face who were operated face lifting procedures combined with maloplasty or angleplasty(from Apr.1997 to Mar. 2001). And We have satisfactory results on most patients(16 cases of patients were satisfied with results).
