Face lift, Maxillo-facial surgery Berlin

Facelift specialist Berlin

The SMAS-Lift is a surgical surgical technique. It uses the deeper connective tissue layers of the face to tighten. The abbreviation SMAS stands for “Superficial Musculo Aponeurotic System”. The SMAS layer is prepared for this and used for the tightening. The SMAS represents a muscular connective tissue layer under the skin, which connects the skin with the bony facial skull.

Therefore, it is very important to know this anatomical structure of the face and to use it for the facelift. One advantage of this surgical technique, in contrast to the pure removal of the excess facial skin, is that the normal aging processes can be observed and reworked.

During the aging process not only the skin as the uppermost layer has lost its elasticity, but also the underlying connective and supporting tissue and the mimic musculature. We almost exclusively use techniques to retighten the SMAS system.

Undoubtedly an exclusive lifting of the skin is possible. However, it only makes sense in selected cases.

In our practice, the multi-layer technique for facelift with mimic musculature (SMAS) and skin is used for the most part. This not only ensures a tightening of the facelift, but also removes excessive tension from the wound edges of the skin at the end of the operation.

In this way we can achieve an unmistakably more natural result than with a pure skin lift.

We can perform a facelift with upper eyelid lifting and lower eyelid lifting in one operation.
