SMAS Lifting Procedure In Korea
What is the SMAS Lifting?
SMAS Lifting is an acronym of Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System, referring to an area of the musculature of the face located directly under the facial skin. SMAS controls the movement of the facial muscles. This section is lifted to create a slim and toned face.
Also known as rhytidectomy, Face Lifting is a cosmetic surgical procedure that works against aging. As people age, they experience changes in appearance due to loss of elasticity, flexibility, and fat. Face Lifting creates a more youthful appearance, making you look approximately ten years younger.
This surgery is operated by lifting skin tissues, fatty tissues, and muscles under the hair/hairline or in front of the ears. This reduces the exposure of scars, making them nearly invisible. Additionally removing excess facial skin tissue or sagging skin on the cheeks and jaws through the incisions, you can restore your youthful look through SMAS Lifting at Answer Plastic Surgery.
SMAS Lifting is an operation that pulls the loose skin up against gravity to reform it into an elastic and toned state. SMAS Lifting can lift your smile line and loose cheeks and therefore bring effects of rejuvenation. Moreover, it creates a beautiful V-line through emphasizing your jawline - one of the main standards of facial beauty.
When you have loose yet thick cheeks and a deep smile line (or any other form of deep wrinkles), SMAS Lifting is the most effective face lifting method. Thus, SMAS Lifting is for people who have relatively serious problems of wrinkles and saggy skins. Through the incisional process at Answer Plastic Surgery, you will not have to worry about lasting effects (it is permanent).
