Explanation of face lifts in Miami
The reason there different variations of facelifts is because each has a different degree of invasiveness. There is the superficial musculoponeurotic system lift – often referred to as the SMAS facelift, the deep plane facelift, the less invasive short scar facelift and the endoscopic facelift. With each facelift you will receive local anesthesia, general anesthesia or conscious sedation, which means although your face will be numb you will still be partially awake.
Based on your anatomic features and particular needs, the ideal facial reconstructive doctor will plan and execute a procedure that is especially formed for your circumstances and aesthetic objectives. Depending on the extent of skin laxity and loss of elasticity determines what procedure is best. If cost is something which is concerning to you, there are many options available to you.

- Superficial Musculoponeurotic System lift – This is the most common procedure among facelifts and it involves the adjustment of sagging cheeks. It is called “superficial” because the muscles affected are considered superficial. The procedure involves smoothing of the face and tightening the tissues in that area that have begun to sag because of the natural process of aging.
- Deep Plane facelift – Commonly known as Rhytidectomy is a deeper procedure than the SMAS. It involves the skin and muscle being reshaped and an incision is made near the hairline to separate the skin from underlying tissue. This procedure may also involve the placement of suspension devices to hold the tissue in place until healing has occurred. This is an in-office, same-day procedure that’s done under general anesthesia.
- Short Scar facelift – The purpose of a short scar facelift is to reduce scarring, having a shorter recovery time and eliminating a possibly overstretched look. The difference between this procedure and a full facelift is that it doesn’t correct the lower half of the face such as loose and sagging skin under the chin and around the neck. It’s touted as having a great rejuvenating effect for the eyes, cheeks, laugh/smile lines and the jowls. It takes about two hours and is performed while you’re under general anesthesia.
- Endoscopic facelift – This is also a less invasive surgery that involves fewer risks and a shorter recovery period. Also considered the “scar less” facelift, it is done with few and smaller (less than 1”) incisions that are placed behind the ear or above the hairline. The reason to choose this method is if there are just small areas that need attention as opposed to an entire facelift.
