Abstract

SUMMARY

We have had a substantial decrease in the number of postoperative hematomas following face lifts since we started putting the patients in extreme Trendelenburg position after all the cutting was done, to reveal any potential bleeding points. These are then coagulated or ligated to obtain more complete hemostasis.
