NATURAL-LOOKING, LONG-LASTING RESULTS

A SMAS facelift is an advanced facial rejuvenation procedure and incorporates both the lifting and tightening of your jowls, cheeks and upper neck. By choosing Karidis Clinic in London for your SMAS facelift, you’ll have the peace of mind that your results will be natural-looking. And thanks to having access to a whole team of specialists here, you’ll have the opportunity to combine your SMAS facelift with other surgical (such as a neck lift or eyelid surgery) or non-surgical procedures (a Perfect Peel or resurfacing laser treatment, for example).

WHAT IS A SMAS FACELIFT?

An SMAS facelift (also known as an SMAS rhytidectomy) is a surgical cosmetic procedure. SMAS stands for ‘Superficial Musculo Aponeurotic System’. The SMAS is an organised fibrous network composed of fibrous tissues and muscles on your face. These muscles and fibrous tissues naturally begin to sag as you age. If you have a ‘sad mouth look’ with sagging skin, an SMAS facelift could be the perfect solution for you because it’s designed to lift and tighten the lower and middle areas of your face.

YOU SMAS FACELIFT WILL ADDRESS:

  1. A ‘turkey neck’ (although you may be recommended a neck lift)
  2. Jowls
  3. Heavy marionette lines (which can give you that sad look)

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A SMAS FACELIFT?

The SMAS facelift is a highly popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the UK, and for good reason. The benefits speak for themselves:

    • Younger, firmer, smoother-looking skin
    • A recovery that’s quicker than a full facelift and neck lift
    • A natural-looking facelift (no ‘windblown effect’, where the skin is pulled too tight)
    • Long-lasting results
    • Your scars are minimal and hidden in your hairline and around your ear

What our clients say about us


Patient Stories

Karen

Facelift

“As the weight melted away, I harboured great expectations for life after obesity. I was convinced that my dramatically altered appearance would unveil a new, beautiful me. But the rapid weight loss combined with lack of exercise (due to obesity-related osteoarthritis) left me with an unnaturally aged face, complete with sagging skin, deep lines and droopy eyes.”
