Ageing causes wrinkles, fine lines, and loses skin elasticity of the skin. Studies have shown that there are volumetric changes resulting from facial fat loss and bone loss as well. To be able to restore the lost volume and get rid of wrinkles and fine lines, a face lifting procedure will often do the trick.
To understand how to achieve a good facelift, one must be aware of the many layers in the face that are affected.
A simple tightening of just the superficial layer of the skin is insufficient. The subcutaneous fat layer also has fibrous collagen tissue that requires tightening. The most crucial layer is the SMAS or deep fascia layer that is supporting all the layers above it.
A facelift is a general term for a cosmetic procedure that helps reverse the signs of ageing in the face. Its primary goal is to lift sagging skin on the face to restore the face’s youthful glow. Just a few years ago, the idea of a facelift is often associated with having to go under the knife. Fortunately, we are at the advent of medical technology, where people can attain a youthful look with less-invasive methods.
