Abstract

The supra-superficial musculoaponeurotic system plane is a safe and natural plane for the finger-assisted malar elevation technique. It also carries the advantage of allowing greater mobilization of the nasolabial fold, the superficial musculoaponeurotic system, and excess skin, although the major advantage is the facility of repositioning the malar fat pad to its original position, over the zygomatic body prominence.
