Facelifts offer a variety of solutions to people who want to reduce signs of aging on the face. Remedying a range of issues like sagging cheeks, a flattening mid-face or loss of skin elasticity, facelift techniques are tailored to meet the patient’s needs.
The most traditional technique, called the SMAS lift, lifts and repositions tissue of the SMAS (Superficial Muscolo Aponeurotic System) layer. A deep-plane facelift is said to be a more accurate method of reposition sagging tissue in the cheeks (the plastysma muscle). However, there are more risks that come with the deep-plane lift. A composite lift adds extra repositioning of the orbicularis oculi muscle (the muscles around the eyes) for a more balanced lift. An experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Lisa Taylor will be able to make the best recommendation for your particular goals.
