The composite face-lift is a well-described, comprehensive facial rejuvenation technique that results in harmonious repositioning of all components of the aging face. It is distinguished by the superior-medial movement of the cheek and the septal reset maneuver. The composite rhytidectomy reverses the unbalanced vectors of the traditional face-lift in patients with the lateral sweep and may reestablish the youthful convexity in patients with hollow eyes.
