This is a common issue for many women with larger breasts. See your local board certified plastic surgeon who can advise you on how to proceed.

Symptoms should be documented by your primary doctor. Your local doctors can help. Best wishes!

Thank you for asking. A secondary facelift is not an uncommon procedure and can generate excellent results. A customized analysis and procedure is important for generating the best results. An experienced facelift surgeon can discuss your specific issues to avoid the rippling. Previous surgery alone is not usually an issue and frequently can make the new procedure easier for the patient. Best wishes!
