Types of Facelift

Aging is a natural part of life and different people age differently and at a different pace. If your face is showing signs of aging and it is making you uncomfortable because it does not reflect how you feel on the inside, it might be time to consider undergoing a Facelift for facial rejuvenation. A facelift can help you turn back the clock and achieve a more youthful appearance. Apart from the traditional facelift, other facelift techniques can be used to reverse the signs of facial aging. Although your Plastic Surgeon will guide you on what would work best for your facial volume, skin type, jawline, and neck, it is always a good idea to have a working knowledge of what each facelift technique applies before your consultation.

Depending on your facial concerns, one of the below facelift techniques can help you achieve your desired youthful appearance. Facelift in Dubai
SMAS Facelift
SMAS is the acronym for the superficial musculoaponeurotic system. This is the thin fibrous layer that covers the front of the face and neck, supports the facial movement muscles, and runs with the platysma muscle in the neck (which runs from the chin down to the collar bone) that covers the front of the neck. The facial movement muscles are responsible for controlling facial expressions. Thus the SMAS facelift addresses the lower and mid front of the face and focuses on areas of aging that are related to facial expressions. The goal of the SMAS facelift is to give a rejuvenated, more youthful appearance to your face and neck by lifting sagging cheeks, and the skin around the jawline and neck. Excess skin is also removed and the underlying facial muscles and tissues are tightened. The results of the SMAS facelift can last 10-15 years.

Mini Facelift
The mini facelift involves the tightening and smoothing out of the skin while also removing excess tissue but this is done through inconspicuous incisions under the hairline. It rejuvenates the cheeks and jowls restoring a youthful appearance.

The goal of the mini facelift is to correct mid-face sagging, jowls, marionette lines, and double chins. The results can last between 5-10 years.
Endoscopic Facelift

This is a minimally invasive facelift surgery that focuses on the skin around the cheeks, eyes, and forehead. It is a great option for individuals with moderated imperfections caused by loose facial muscles and fatty tissues in those areas. The goal of the endoscopic facelift is correcting facial sagging by focusing on the upper part of the face. It is often combined with eyebrow rejuvenation with the results typically lasting 5-10 years.
Liquid Facelift
The liquid facelift is the most popular type of facial rejuvenation. It is simple, time-efficient, and non-invasive and it involves the use of injectables such as Botox, Dysport, Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, and Sculptra being injected into the target area of the face.

It helps in reducing the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and folds and also restores the natural, curved facial contours to provide a more rested and energetic look.
To further enhance the results of a Facelift, it can be done in combination with blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), rhinoplasty, fat transfer, and facial implants.
