What is a SMAS facelift?
A facelift provides lifting and tightening to the skin of the lower face and neck. A major part of creating a natural and long lasting result is tightening the deeper muscle layers of the face. The SMAS (Superficial MuscluoAponeurotic System) is this deeper layer as well as its investing fascia. Lifting and tightening this layer is critical to a well done facelift.
Finding out if a facelift is right for you as well as which type begins with a consultation with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
