55-year-old patient (before/after photo). Firming measures are often carried out parallel to muscle transplants and are able to give the patient a more youthful appearance in addition to a functional gain in the eye and mouth complex. The raising of the corner of the mouth and tightening of the cheek tissue lead to a recovery of the "oral continence", the ability to keep liquid food in the mouth in a controlled manner. The speech often becomes much clearer postoperatively. After the additional tightening of the tissue during chewing, there are no more accidental injuries caused by biting on the mucous membrane of the cheek.
