In course of time our appearance will change and our reflection in the mirror will only remind us of nature’s inevitable process of aging. In a world where looking young and youthful is the ideal form of beauty, technology has found a way through surgery do drastically ‘slow down’ the effects of father time.
Today one of the most popular anti-aging (procedures to make one look younger) procedures is the SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) Lift, a two-level facelift which is aimed at regeneration of the muscular-aponeurotic layer. The SMAS is the deep layer of supportive tissue in the face. This subcutaneous layer contains elastin and collagen, therefore responsible for both elasticity and smoothness of the skin. However, the SMAS layer collapses over time and when collagen is not produced at the same rate, the muscle layer becomes flabby causing wrinkles in the outer layer of skin. In other words, unlike the conventional surgical method of simply tightening or pulling the elongated skin layer, it is possible to continue the effect by separating and removing the elongated SMAS tissue.
The purpose of SMAS Facelift is a direct effect on the muscular aponeurotic layer and to restore the youth of the face, not just to hide wrinkle. Wrinkles and extra skin are smoothened out. But, because the deep layers of the skin are affected, the procedure is considered to be one of the most complicated and in order to achieve the maximum result, it should be performed only by highly qualified and experienced surgeons.
South Korea ranks at the top of the list when it comes to demand in plastic surgery. A distinctive feature of Korean plastic surgeries is the emphasis on minimal invasiveness, reduced rehabilitation period and high-quality service. Plastic Surgery in Korea is not limited to just surgery, many special rehabilitation programs are being developed continuously to assist the recovery process.
When comparing the difference between general facelift and smas lift, the smas lift has shorter recovery periods than the general facelift. There are no foreign substances inserted and there is almost no scarring, and an immediate and reliable lifting effect can be seen right after the procedure.
