A superficial musculoaponeurotic system facelift (SMAS facelift) is a reconstructive surgery procedure aiming to improve the facial features of the patient. However, the secret lies in the thin layer of muscle, fibrous tissue, and fat tissue that your facial skin is attached to.

For most patients undergoing SMAS facelifts, doctors make incisions along the face contours, remove the excess skin, and pull the remaining skin over the excised area like the usual facelift.

The thin SMAS layer is also rearranged underneath to ensure maximum rejuvenation alongside the outer skin as the incised skin reattaches to the SMAS layer during the healing process.

It helps erase traces of aging on your face, making you appear younger, more rejuvenated, and healthier. It also gives the patient confidence in their daily lives and social interactions.

In addition to the tried-and-true facelift procedure that precedes this, surgeons also make incisions in the SMAS underneath the skin to rearrange them alongside the skin layer in the traditional method.

This results in a better foundation of support so that when you are healed, your skin will not only be rejuvenated on the outside but also underneath the SMAS layer.

A facelift is like applying a coat of paint to your house. In SMAS facelifts, it is not only applying a fresh coat of paint but also redoing the wall underneath so that it is structurally sound and the paint can stay prettier for longer.

Anyone who can have surgery can have a SMAS facelift. As long as the patient is adequately healthy, a SMAS facelift can be performed.

Most patients having SMAS facelifts are in their 40s, 50s, and 60s.

Gangwhoo Hospital recommends the procedure for patients who have prominent jowls, a sagging jawline, or sunken cheeks, as well as deep wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth.

Scars from other surgeries or botched surgeries within the excisable area may also be in need of reconstruction. It is necessary to consult with cosmetic and reconstructive medical experts to ensure that any procedure is the right one.
