High SMAS Facelift

Problem

Excess sagging and wrinkled facial skin, loose cheek folds, drooping around the mouth, sagging jowls, poorly defined cheeks or jawline and loose neck skin. Internal feelings that one’s tired or aged face stops them from doing what they want or doesn’t accurately reflect their inner youth and vitality.

Ideal Candidate

Men or women, usually in the 40’s to 60’s, whose face or neck has sagged to a visible degree, but whose skin still retains some elasticity.

Solution

A High SMAS Facelift will comprehensively lift and smooth the undesirable ageing changes in the problem areas of the face and neck. In keeping with our philosophy, this facelift technique is designed to powerfully rejuvenate while completely avoiding the operated or pulled look. This is achieved using an advanced and proven deep support (SMAS) facelift technique, which produces a more youthful and refreshed face, with the most fine and imperceptible surgical scar possible. Because of this, the benefits are almost never recognizable by others as being the result of surgery. While improvements in appearance are visible to the eye, many describe their improved confidence and sense of well being as being just as powerful.

The advanced facelift techniques deliver comprehensive correction of problems and therefore involve slightly longer surgical time. However, when ageing changes are more advanced, the benefits are the most lasting and natural available today. Recovery time is usually 10 – 14 days. During your consultation your options will be explained and we will advise which technique best suits your individual needs.

Short Incision High SMAS Face and Mid-Face lift.

Short Incision High SMAS Facelift

Problem

Ageing of the lower two thirds of the face (mouth, jawline, jowls and upper neck).

Solution

The Short Incision High SMAS Facelift is best for those with facial ageing mainly in the lower two thirds of the face and upper neck or for patients who, for personal reasons, request a less involved procedure. The Short Incision High SMAS Facelift involves shorter surgery time, the shortest possible incisions and a faster recovery than a Full High SMAS Facelift, so therefore costs are lower and recovery is quicker. With meticulous care the Short Incision High SMAS Facelift results in a fresher, smoother and firmer face without any dramatic changes or obvious signs of surgery. This is perhaps the greatest benefit, as patients can feel confident that the benefits will not be detectable as the result of surgery. The virtually imperceptible scars blend into the contours in the front of the ear and within the sideburn hair and there are no incisions or scars behind the ears whatsoever. Because this technique incorporates a highly advanced method of deep tissue (SMAS) support available, it produces a highly effective, long lasting and natural rejuvenation while totally avoiding the pulled or operated look. Recovery time is usually 10 days.
