The SMAS Facelift Technique – Learn More About This Facelift Procedure In Perth

Request Consultation

There are various techniques that can be used to execute a facelift and one of these techniques is the SMAS technique. Since not all patients are familiar with SMAS Perth and its inner workings, we have created an overview of useful information below.

What Does SMAS Stand For And How Does It Relate To The Facelift Technique?

SMAS is an abbreviation that stands for superficial musculoaponeurotic system. The name is chosen for a specific reason, as this type of procedure addresses the underlying musculature of the face. Naturally, this can have quite the dramatic influence on the face as well as the results obtained from the procedure.

What Does A Surgeon Do During The SMAS Facelift?

During an SMAS facelift, the cosmetic surgeon will focus on more than just the lower part of the face. In fact, the surgeon will address areas between the scalp and the earlobes, neck, jaw, cheeks, the middle of the face and more. Therefore, a lot of common signs of ageing could be addressed by a procedure such as this.

At the start of the procedure, the surgeon usually makes an incision in a strategic location that enables him to access the underlying structures accordingly. Once the incision is made, the surgeon will separate skin and fat, enabling him to gain proper access to the subcutaneous fascia. Naturally, this procedure always requires an experienced surgeon, as this area contains a lot of nerves.

When the patient has access to the appropriate treatment area, he will tighten and lift any muscles upwards. Then, he puts the muscles in their new location, which will help to keep the patient’s new facial shape in place.

Which Patients Obtain A SMAS Facelift?

Patients must meet certain criteria to benefit from an SMAS facelift, more specifically the patient must have certain aesthetic problems that can be tackled with a SMAS facelift.

While most patients obtaining this treatment are in their late forties and fifties, there is no real age limit connected to the SMAS facelift, As long as the patient is in good health and has realistic expectations, the SMAS facelift could be the option for them.

How Much Will I Pay For A SMAS Facelift In Perth?

Much like other cosmetic procedures available in Perth, the price can vary considerably from clinic to clinic. Some surgeons operate in a hospital, which means patients usually have to pay extra for the facilities being used. There are also surgeons that have their own operating facilities, enabling them to provide the patient with a better price.

Of course, the cost of your procedure is not solely down to the location and the surgeon you choose. The complexity of the procedure and the estimated duration of your treatment also influences cost. You should also consider the cost of the anaesthetist, which should always be included in your estimate.

How Long Do I Need To Recover From A SMAS Facelift?

With the SMAS facelift, it is important to remember that some of the deeper structures of the face are altered and affected. Depending on the size of the treatment area and the overall complexity of your treatment, your recovery time may vary.

Before you leave the clinic, The Dr Lanzer Clinic will provide you with some clear instructions regarding your aftercare. For example, you will be asked to refrain from rigorous exercise for some time during your recovery. You will also be required to take certain medications to manage any discomfort and prevent infection.

During your recovery, it is vital to follow the instructions from your clinic. However, it is equally as important to listen to your own body during the recovery. If you feel like you need a little more time to recover, it is always advised to take some extra time off.
