Overview of a facelift
The facelift is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures around, mainly due to its ability to shave years off your appearance, revealing a younger, more youthful you. It involves tightening the underlying SMAS (superficial musculoaponeurotic system) layer to provide and natural results. Additionally, it is common to elevate underneath the SMAS layer, also known as a deep plane facelift, to reinforce your results further.
Unlike the “Feather Lift” or “Thread Lift” where a barbed thread is used to hold the skin in place and the “Lifestyle Lift” or “MACS Lift” where a permanent suture is left in to keep the tissues in place, a traditional facelift repositions and places sutures in the actual SMAS and deep plane layers of the face to provide longevity and natural results.
