SMAS Facelift

An SMAS facelift can improve otherwise permanent signs of ageing such as sagging, creases and loose skin.
    •    Sagging jowls around the face

    •    Sagging in the mid facial area (cheeks)

    •    Fat that has fallen lower on the face

    •    Loose skin underneath the chin and neck

    •    Deep creases caused by pulling of excess skin around the mouth


The Procedure
The SMAS, or Superficial Musculo-Aponeurotic System, is a layer of muscle and fibrous tissue that runs from the neck into the face, and fuses to the cheekbones and the scalp. During a SMAS facelift, the skin is separated from the SMAS layer, which is dissected and tightened so the patient gets a full, lifted result that is long-lasting. Any excess skin is also trimmed and re-draped.
