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

Lift of the lower 2/3 of the face - SMAS lifting in Poltava, Kiev and Kharkov - photo 1 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.

Review translated from Russian language automatically

I used to think that people age gradually, imperceptibly by a little bit... My classmates, whom I meet once every 3 years, age less often, but I don't, I'm still nothing! But in fact it turned out not to be so. Stress, loss of status, inability to live with the whole family together, loss of business... and... didn't have to wait long... and now I no longer recognize myself in the mirror. Someone else was looking at me, an old woman with a downcast face and a dull look. I didn't want to look at myself, now I went to the mirror only out of necessity. The existing anxiety at that time and depression were joined by a feeling of deep dissatisfaction with his face. I have a small child, and I thought, how am I going to take him to kindergarten, he's going to be shy of me! When he's a schoolboy, his classmates will think that I'm his grandmother. And these thoughts pushed me to the decision that something should be done radically with this and the effect should be long-lasting. I looked at other people's experiences on the Internet and decided to do a 2/3 facelift and blepharoplasty of the eyelids. The question remained where to make it! There were no friends of mine who had a similar experience. I had to look for it myself without recommendations. At first, I looked at Turkish clinics, but when I touched on them in more detail, it turned out that I had information about the doctor from an intermediary selling his services. It didn't sound reliable. Then I looked at the Ukrainian clinics in Kiev and Poltava, I did not know about either of them. I decided to rely on reviews on the Internet in my choice. I stopped at a Clinic in Poltava. Having arrived there 3500 km away, I got to Nikita Ilyich. He turned out to be a very good surgeon, very kind, calm, professional. He told me all the options, inconveniences and difficulties that I would face in the rehabilitation process. The hospital had a very cozy homely atmosphere. The operation was scheduled for the morning, and the next day I left. A year has passed since then. I have never regretted this choice. Now, when I look at myself in the mirror, I recognize myself the way I should be, I like myself again. Nikita Ilyich is a wonderful doctor, I highly recommend him to everyone, do not be afraid of anything and start liking yourself again!
