A full or SMAS facelift is a surgical procedure to rejuvenate the face by addressing sagging skin, deep wrinkles, and loss of facial volume. Dr. Guida offers this comprehensive facelift technique to reposition and tighten the underlying facial muscles and tissues, helping you achieve a firm, taut, youthful appearance.
the SMAS Laser
The superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) is a critical anatomical structure in the face. Located beneath the skin and fat layers, the SMAS is a dense network of connective tissues and muscles that extends across the face and neck. It is a support structure for the facial features, responsible for maintaining the integrity and contour of the face and controlling facial expressions. A full or SMAS facelift manipulates and adjusts this underlying layer of connective tissues and muscles for more dramatic facial rejuvenation.
Full/SMAS Facelift Treats:
- Sagging jowls and cheeks
- Deep wrinkles and folds
- Loose neck skin and turkey neck
- Loss of facial volume
- Prominent nasolabial folds
- Aging-related facial droopiness
