The ‘SMAS’ weighs more than the skin itself. As such, this weight can drag the skin downward. During a ‘SMAS’ facelift Dr. Repta will lift the underlying muscle and tissue, rather than just pulling or stretching the skin over a sagging face. With Dr. Repta’s years of experience and precise surgical skill, you will be receiving one of the best SMAS facelifts Scottsdale has to offer.

Candidates for an SMAS Facelift

Unfortunately aging happens to the best of us. Even the most healthy, fit patients will eventually see the dreaded signs of aging. However, with modern plastic surgery and its use of cutting-edge techniques, something effective can be done to turn back the hands of time, giving you a rejuvenated, more youthful appearance.

Many patients unhappy with their aging process see remarkable results with the SMAS facelift.

Commonly referred to as a “muscle lift,” the SMAS procedure is very popular with patients in their 40’s and 50’s with the drooping muscle having been elevated to its once youthful position.

A SMAS facelift can correct and improve the following issues:

  • Loss of volume in cheeks
  • Loose and saggy skin
  • Wrinkles
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Sagging jowls
  • Excess skin on the neck

Recovery & Healing

Immediately following your procedure, your head will be wrapped in bandages. It is important to keep your head elevated for the first 24 hours to help reduce swelling. Most patients return to their normal activities about 2 weeks following surgery. While swelling is greatly reduced within the first couple of weeks, it may take up to 6 months for last vestiges of swelling to disappear and the final results of the SMAS facelift to manifest. Tiny incisions are carefully placed along the hair-line and behind the ear resulting in minimal scarring, often remaining completely undetected. The results look completely natural and last for many, many years.
