What is SMAS Facelift?

Our SMAS facelift in Turkey offers natural-looking results that will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated!

Today, facial rejuvenation procedures have become very popular. SMAS Facelift, also known as Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System, is an advanced technique used in facial rejuvenation surgeries. This technique aims to achieve a firmer and younger appearance by correcting sagging in the face and neck area.

During the SMAS Facelift procedure, the plastic surgeon tightens and repositions the SMAS layer under the skin and at the same time creates a new form in the SMAS layer. This procedure creates a lifting effect on the skin while removing sagging in the lower part of the face and neck. Excess skin is removed and facial contours are improved in a more youthful and natural way.

This procedure is generally preferred for middle-aged and older individuals. Because there is a lot of sagging and wrinkles in advanced age groups. These sagging and wrinkles that occur are often very difficult to do with known classical facelift operations. For this reason, the smas facelift technique is applied.

The Smas facelift procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia and the recovery time may be slightly longer than other facelift techniques as it is a more extensive procedure. However, this method has the potential to offer more pronounced and long-lasting results.

What are the Types of Smas Facelift?

Looking for a trusted and experienced clinic for your SMAS facelifting in Istanbul? Our team of experts is here to help!

The SMAS facelift procedure, which creates great effects especially in the middle-aged and older age group, is considered one of the most effective methods of facial rejuvenation surgeries. This smas facelift surgery is divided into different types according to the needs of the person. These are; Classic smas facelift and mini smas facelift. To examine these treatments in detail;

Classic SMAS Facelift

The classic SMAS facelift, which is a commonly preferred and widely applied technique among facial rejuvenation surgeries, aims to remove sagging in the middle and lower parts of the face and achieve a younger appearance. Since deeper wrinkles and sagging are generally targeted in this procedure, the incisions are slightly deeper. Therefore, the healing process of Classic smas facelift operation may be a little longer than mini smas facelift.

Mini SMAS Facelift

The Mini SMAS Facelift is a facial rejuvenation procedure that is less invasive than the classic SMAS Facelift. This method is an operation designed especially for mild to moderate sagging and signs of aging in the middle area of the face. Thanks to this operation, fewer incisions are made compared to the classic facelift. However, it cannot be applied to deep sagging and wrinkles as in the classic facelift procedure.

Who is a Candidate for Smas Facelift Surgery?

Smas facelift procedure is a method preferred by many people. However, this procedure gives clearer results in certain people. If you are wondering whether you are the right candidate for smas facelift surgery, you can review the control items below.

  • If there are severe sagging and wrinkles in the middle area of the face
  • In addition, if skin elasticity is still preserved
  • If you are over 55 years of age and have experienced a decrease in facial fat volume, resulting in sunken cheeks and other areas of the face
  • If your forehead and smile lines have become much more wrinkled, we can say that you are the right candidate for smas facelift surgery.

However, if you want to get information about whether you are the right candidate for SMAS facelift operation, you can contact Dr. Hasan Duygulu immediately and have a pre-consultation.

Benefits of Smas Facelift Procedure

Smas facelift aesthetics has many benefits for the person. These benefits vary from person to person and also vary according to the expectations of the person. However, in general terms, the benefits of the SMAS facelift procedure are as follows;

  • Since the surgical incisions are usually behind the hairline and ears, scars are less visible.
  • By further tightening the skin structure, a smooth appearance is obtained in the face area.
  • This method, which tightens the sub-surface SMAS layer along with the skin surface, offers longer lasting results compared to other facelift techniques. The results are usually permanent for 10 to 15 years.
  • This procedure combats multiple signs of aging such as deep wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin and loose muscle tissue.
  • With modern techniques and a good care plan, patients can experience a relatively fast recovery process in the postoperative period.



How Long Does the Results of the Smas Facelift Procedure Last?

How long the results of SMAS facelift surgery will be permanent is one of the most curious questions. It can often be wrong to express a clear judgment on this issue. The reason for this is that the permanence of deep plane facelift surgery depends on the person’s skin structure, genetic history and how much attention he pays after the operation. Therefore, the process of smas facelift operation varies from person to person. However, the experience of the doctor also comes into play at this point. However, if we need to specify an average period for the permanence of the smas facelift operation, it varies between 10 years and 15 years. This period varies according to the reasons mentioned above.

How to Find an Experienced Smas Facelift Surgeon?

SMAS facelift aesthetics is an operation process that should be carried out very meticulously. For this reason, you should definitely have it done in the right places and by a good smas facelift surgeon. For this, you need to pay attention to certain points. At the beginning of these points, the plastic surgeon should be trained in the head and neck and should have specialized in aesthetic and reconstructive field. In addition, he/she should have many certificates in the field of facial aesthetics. Finally, the fact that your surgeon has performed smas facelift aesthetics on many different face types provides an extra privilege. Therefore, pay attention to these factors when choosing your smas facelift surgeon.

There are some points you should pay attention to after SMAS facelift surgery. These points greatly affect your healing process. Therefore, you should definitely pay attention to the following points.

  • To reduce swelling after surgery, your head should be kept in an elevated position. This will improve blood circulation and reduce swelling.

  • The wound area should be kept dry for the time specified by the surgeon and care should be taken when showering.
