Hi there it’s Dr JSK here. Going to talk to you this afternoon about SMAS facelifts. Now the SMAS is the most common type of facelift. The SMAS is a layer in the face. Our bodies are organised in layers and one of these layers is the SMAS. Now that is S-M-A-S that stands for Superficial Musculo Aponeurotic System, it’s a complicated medical term but really what it means it’s a tough fibrous layer that when elevated gives the patient excellent longevity for their facelift and a nice natural result without unnatural tightness on the skin surface. It can be done in various different ways it can be tightened by itself, a small sliver can be removed and closed back up or it can elevated, redraped and secured to itself again. There are some of the finer points of SMAS facelift surgery. I hope to see you soon.
