Different Face-lift TechniquesThe surgical procedure depends on what part of the face you wish to improve. Since face-lift has improved over the years, and people who wish to look younger and are comfortable with cosmetic surgery, face-lift is their go to procedure. And it’s not all about cutting and pulling the skin but it’s also about the art of perfecting the youthful appearance by intricately planning the surgical procedure for each individual.


Types of Face-lift:

  • The Deep Plane Face-lift

It is more invasive compared to other face-lift techniques as it involves the whole face including the eyelids, eyebrows and neck. The procedure consists of tightening and repositioning the muscles and removing the unnecessary fat.

  • SMAS lift

SMAS (Superficial Musculo-aponeurotic System) lift is the repositioning by tightening or elevating the underlying muscle layer (SMAS). This surgery focuses on the lower face and neck. Excess fat may also be removed as well as the extra skin.

  • Subperiostal lift

This procedure is executed at the deepest layer of the facial structure. It is the area above the facial bones. This procedure can be done by the aid of an endoscope to pull up and tighten the muscles on the facial bones.

  • Temporal Face-lift

Temporal face-lift focuses on the eyebrow area. It addresses the sagging or lowering of eyebrows as well correct the wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes.

  • Midface lift

Midface lift targets the cheekbone area. It is commonly known as a “cheek-lift”. This procedure is usually accompanied by other face-lift procedure like the SMAS lift.

  • Mini Face-lift

Mini face-lift uses smaller incisions compared to other types of face-lifts. It is not for everyone though. Younger patients (35 to 45 years old) are better candidates for this kind of procedure. This procedure is used to rejuvenate the appearance around the jaw line and neck.

As always, every surgery has risks. Make sure that you do your research and go to a licensed practitioner to lower the risk of complications.
