Lift of the lower 2/3 of the face - SMAS lifting

Lift of the lower 2/3 of the face - SMAS lifting Every person, regardless of gender and age, strives to be beautiful and young. However, over time, the skin and soft tissues of the face lose their turgor and sag. Wrinkles, folds, “flews”, fat accumulations and other unaesthetic age-related changes appear. Plastic surgery aimed at a facelift will help get rid of these defects and remove 10-15 years. SMAS-lifting, endoscopic facelift, check-lifting - these and other procedures will provide a pronounced anti-age effect at an affordable cost.

SMAS lifting - features

Smas lifting is a plastic surgery that corrects age-related changes on the face. Which involves lifting not only the surface of the skin, but also the deep structures of the face and subcutaneous adipose tissue. That is, the level of SMAS, which in translation from English means - superficial muscular-aponeurotic system.

Smas is the framework for all other fabrics, providing clear facial contours. With age, it weakens, and the face, accordingly, floats. Therefore, it is the SMAS lift that guarantees a long and lasting result.

There are 2 methods of smas-tightening:

  1. Classical. When above the ear, along the hair, an incision is made. It extends along the front edge of the ear and around the lobe. Or an incision is made in the chin crease to correct the cervico-chin angle. Thus, it is possible to stratify muscle structures and fix them in the desired form.
  2. Endoscopic. It involves the use of endoscopic equipment under the monitoring of a light-optical system. To get to the level of smas, small punctures are made in the skin (up to 1 cm). The affected area is visible on the monitor, which increases accuracy and reduces trauma. Usually up to 3 punctures are made in the hair area, as in endoscopic forehead surgery or behind the ears.

Face lifting is best done for those patients whose skin on the face and neck has already begun to sag, but is still quite elastic. This is about 35-55 years old. However, these frames are conditional.

Lift of the lower 2/3 of the face - SMAS lifting Only after a preliminary consultation and examination of a patient from Poltava, Kiev, Kharkov and other cities of Ukraine, the surgeon decides on the appointment for the operation, the amount of intervention, the type of anesthesia and the technique. How much the procedure costs is also discussed with the doctor. Since the order of prices depends on the personal characteristics of the patient, his wishes and the required interventions.

Preparatory measures and the course of the operation

Before a facelift, you need to undergo a complete medical examination and tests. Examinations by a therapist and anesthesiologist are also necessary, since plastic surgery requires general anesthesia. For a week you need to stop taking some medications, alcohol, smoking. On the day of the intervention, do not use any cosmetics.

Operation stages:

  1. The doctor makes preoperative markings.
  2. An incision is made in the integument in the required area.
  3. The skin is peeled off, tightened, the Smas-layer is moved, fixed in the desired position.
  4. Excision of excess skin folds.
  5. Internal and external seams.

The operation takes an average of 2-3 hours and is considered quite serious. Another day (two or three) after the manipulation, the patient is in the hospital to monitor his condition.

Complication risks and recovery

Rehabilitation - judging by the feedback from patients, it can last 1-2 months. To prevent it from dragging on, you need to adhere to the postoperative recommendations:

  • 3 weeks do not take aspirin, do not smoke, do not drink alcohol;
  • sleep only on your back;
  • wear a compression bandage for a week;
  • 2-3 months do not go to saunas, baths, swimming pools, do not be under the sun;
  • do not play sports, remove all loads;
  • less to touch the face.

Side effects of smas lifting:

  • pulling pain that goes away after a couple of days;
  • swelling and bruising (maximum - on the third day), disappearing after 2 weeks;
  • decreased sensitivity of skin areas - will gradually recover;
  • skin necrosis, hematomas, nerve damage, visible scars, infection are rare and are caused by doctor's mistakes.

The stitches are removed on days 5 and 10. The final result is assessed after 2-3 months, after complete rehabilitation.

Based on the reviews, the effect of endoscopic plastics lasts about 7 years, classical - 12-15. If you take care of your skin, do not change the weight dramatically, then the result can be prolonged.
