VENTURA, O. M. et al. Rhytidoplasty with short scars: retention ligaments and correction vectors. Cir. plást. iberolatinoam. [online]. 2008, vol.34, n.1, pp.51-60. ISSN 0376-7892.

The authors explain the anatomical basis of suspension techniques that use traction sutures to tow the tissues, by-passing the effect of the osteo-musclecutaneous ligaments. The different correction vectors used are analyzed.
