What is an SMAS facelift?

An SMAS (superficial musculoaponeurotic system) facelift is a surgical procedure aimed at addressing signs of aging in the face and neck. Unlike traditional facelifts that primarily focus on skin tightening, the SMAS facelift targets the underlying muscular layer of the face, providing more comprehensive and longer-lasting results. By repositioning and tightening the SMAS layer, excess skin is removed, deep wrinkles are smoothed, and facial contours are restored, resulting in a refreshed and youthful appearance.

SMAS facelift vs. deep plane facelift: what’s the difference?

While both the SMAS facelift and deep plane facelift are surgical procedures targeting facial rejuvenation, they differ in their approach. The SMAS facelift in NYC tightens the deeper facial tissues by cutting and suturing them, while a deep plane facelift lifts this layer up as a flap and repositions it. As they are different approaches aimed at the same result, which technique is best for you will depend on your individual anatomy and personal factors such as your age.

Dr. Lisiecki’s personalized SMAS facelift technique

Dr. Lisiecki has developed a personalized SMAS facelift in NYC that prioritizes natural-looking results and long-lasting outcomes. He employs an individualized vector approach, ensuring that tissues are repositioned back to their original position rather than being pulled back excessively, which can result in an unnaturally tight appearance. By focusing on the SMAS level, Dr. Lisiecki achieves a more durable outcome not solely reliant on the skin’s strength, as the skin can relax and stretch over time. He also employs targeted, precision fat grafting to restore the volume that your face has lost with age.

This personalized technique allows Dr. Lisiecki to address sagging facial tissues, deep wrinkles, and loss of volume effectively. By meticulously repositioning and tightening the SMAS layer, he restores facial contours and achieves a rejuvenated, yet natural, appearance for his patients. With an emphasis on personalized care and attention to each patient’s unique facial structure, Dr. Lisiecki’s SMAS facelift technique ensures that individuals can enjoy long-lasting results that enhance their self-confidence and overall well-being.

Recovery after an SMAS facelift surgery

After an SMAS facelift, patients can expect a recovery period that typically lasts a few weeks. Swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort are common during the initial stages but gradually subside over time. You may need a supportive compression garment to minimize swelling and promote healing. It is essential to follow post-operative instructions provided by the surgeon, including restrictions on physical activities and proper incision care. Full recovery and optimal results are typically achieved within a few months.
