Types of Facelift
Based on this, he will recommend the best facelift option for your unique needs. Here are some of the common types of facelifts available.
Signature Vertical Deep Plane Facelift
Lift naturally upwards reversing gravity
While the most ‘advanced’ option, the deep plane facelift offers the most natural augmentation. The natural facial layers are elevated to their original position to address facial volume and sagging skin. An intricate procedure requiring excellent knowledge of the intricate facial anatomy, it is performed by less than 5% of general plastic surgeons.
Dr De Silva has developed a signature deep facelift surgery based on his research with facial enhancement and beautification with the Golden Ratio, augmented femininity or masculinity to give a sharper and more attractive appearance.
SMAS Based Facelifts
A SMAS facelift addresses the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) – the thin layer of fibres that covers the face and the neck. This procedure lifts towards the ears and adjusts sagging cheeks and jowls by excising both skin and facial tissue to produce a naturally ‘lifted’ look. In some cases, fat deposits can be removed for further definition.
A Skin-Only Facelift
This procedure involves only lifting the skin, rather than the skin and tissue underneath. A more traditional technique is used when only some skin needs to be excised without disturbing any underlying muscles. A skin-only rhytidectomy is generally performed on younger patients who have not had any advanced ageing set in.
S-Lift, MACS Lift
The S-Lift is named after the ‘S’ shape of its incision. Both the S-Lift and MACS (Minimal Access Cranial Suspension) lift are known for their shorter incisions. They are also quicker to perform, with less downtime. These procedures focus on the middle and lower third of the face to erase jowls, wrinkles, and other sagging skin.
The mini facelift is similar to the s-lift in that smaller incisions are used. In this case, only the SMAS muscle is altered, for a lift that provides a refreshed look but less dramatic results than more traditional or invasive surgery. This procedure is suitable for those with early facial ageing.
