What Are The Different Types Of Face Lift?
The different kinds of a facelift are Traditional Full Facelift, Mid Facelift, Mini Facelift, Lower Facelift and Thread Facelift.
The different techniques followed are:
Endoscopic Facelift Technique
In this technique, the surgeon makes three small incisions and inserts the endoscope through one of them. He will then use surgical instruments through the other two to lift the facial muscles and remove excess tissue.
This is the oldest technique where the surgeon makes a long incision along the hairline and sutures the skin higher up . This technique addresses wrinkles and sagging skin and minimises the risk of nerve damage.
Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System (SMAS) Facelift
In this procedure, the surgeon tightens the underlying muscle structure, sometimes even extracting skin in order to improve facial contours, thereby giving a more youthful appearance to the patient.
The surgeon creates small S shaped incisions in front of the ears. S-lift prices and recovery time are lesser than other techniques of surgery. It is often used to treat the lower half of the face.
Deep Plane Lift
In this method, the whole facial structure is lifted as one unit instead of being adjusted separately. They are generally used to treat the midface areas.
The facial tissues just above the bones are adjusted by making incisions in the lower lash line or the inside of the mouth. This technique also addresses the sagging skin in the midface.
