This case report shows a new technique for inserting superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) tissue as autologous filling of deep nasolabial folds during an SMAS or minimal access cranial suspension (MACS) facelift procedure with satisfying aesthetic results. The technique avoids visible scars on the cheek and does not require insertion through a potential contaminated area such as nasal mucosa.
