What Makes Face Lift so Different?
We have moved away from the traditional facelift to the more natural and longer lasting SMAS facelift. It is consider the Ferrari of facelift techniques.
Benefits of SMAS facelift:
- SMAS Facelift takes years from the face – with longer lasting results
- SMAS Facelift can keep you looking at least 10 years younger
- SMAS Facelift deals with the deeper structural layers for better results
- SMAS Facelift corrects jowls, hollow cheeks & nasolabial folds
- SMAS Facelift achieves a more youthful, beautiful – natural outcome
- SMAS Facelift requires excellent surgical skills & expertise
How is SMAS Different From The Traditional Facelift?
*Traditional facelift do not deal with the deeper dermal layers as SMAS does.
Face Lift Ideal Candidates
Face lift surgery is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.
Face lift is a good option for you if:
- You have realistic expectations
- You have deep lines or folds running from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth
- You have jowls or loss of well-defined jaw-line
- You have deep wrinkles in the cheekbones
- You have loose skin, wrinkles
- Vertical “cords” or excess fatty tissue in the neck
Surgery and Anesthesia
A facelift is usually performed as an outpatient procedure, but overnight stays are a possibility depending on your specific circumstances and number of procedures performed. The surgery will be performed in an outpatient surgery facility. The actual facelift procedure can take anywhere from two-and-a-half to four hours depending on the extent of your lift and whether or not other procedures such as a brow lift and eyelid surgery are being performed at the same time.
Facelift surgery can be performed with local anesthetics and complementary sedation, or general anesthesia; it all depends on the complexity of the case and length of the surgery.
Face Lift Incision
Traditionally, the incision is located in the area of the temple hair, just above and in front of the ear, and continues around the earlobe, circling the ear before returning to the lower scalp area. (A neck lift incision often begins in front of the earlobe and wraps around behind the ear ending in the lower scalp area). The skin is raised outward before repositions and tightens the underlying muscle and connective tissue.
Face Lift Recovery
Some degree of swelling, bruising, puffiness, numbness and paleness are normal and to be expected. The doctor may instruct you to use cold compresses to keep swelling to a minimum. If dressing has been applied, it will be removed within two to three days. The facelift patient will also be instructed to keep his/her head elevated when lying down and avoid as much activity as possible
We generally recommend that patients avoid vigorous activity following this procedure. Straining, bending, and lifting should be avoided during the early postoperative period. Patients will also be instructed to temporarily avoid exposure to direct sunlight and for the long-term, to be conscientious about the use of a sunblock to protect the skin.
Recovery usually takes three to four weeks, though many patients go back to work in two weeks. Scars are usually not noticeable after enough time has passed for them to mature. In any case, they are easily disguised in natural skin creases, by the hair, or in persistent cases, by makeup until total healing has occurred. Bear in mind that the aging process continues after surgery and that some relaxation of tissues will occur over the first few weeks.
