Restore Youthfulness

What is a SMAS Facelift?

The SMAS Facelift, also known as the SMAS Plication Facelift, is a surgical procedure designed to restore youthfulness to the face and neck.

The Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System (SMAS) is a layer of tissue beneath the skin that connects facial muscles. During the SMAS Facelift, this layer is tightened and repositioned to lift and rejuvenate the lower face and neck, providing long-lasting results.

SMAS Facelift vs Deep Plane Facelift

While both procedures aim to address facial aging, the SMAS Facelift primarily focuses on the lower face and neck with some improvements in the mid face, making it an ideal option for individuals with early to moderate signs of aging. In contrast, the Deep Plane Facelift targets deeper tissues and may be recommended for more advanced aging concerns or for patients desiring more dramatic results.

SMAS Facelift Benefits

  • Tightens sagging skin and muscles in the face and neck
  • Improves jawline definition and reduces jowls
  • Restores youthful contours and overall facial harmony
  • Enhances self-confidence and quality of life

SMAS Facelift Candidates

Ideal candidates for the SMAS Facelift are individuals with mild to moderate signs of facial aging, such as sagging skin, deepening folds, and loss of facial volume. Patients should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure.

Seek Excellence

SMAS Facelift Consultation and Preparation

During your personal consultation, Dr. Bolourian will evaluate your facial structure, discuss your aesthetic goals, and develop a customized treatment plan to ensure you have the best options to meet your needs. You may be advised to discontinue certain medications before surgery to minimize risks and optimize results.

SMAS Facelift Procedure

The SMAS Facelift is typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the patient's preferences and the extent of the procedure. Dr. Bolourian will make discreet incisions along the hairline and around the ears to access the underlying SMAS layer. The tissues are then tightened, excess skin is removed, and the incisions are meticulously closed for minimal scarring.
