What problems are solved by lower face lift?

SMAS lift

SMAS is the superficial muscular aponeurotic system, including a layer of muscles and tendon-like flat tissue.

SMAS consists of collagen and elastin fibers and ensures the elasticity and smoothness of the skin.

During the surgery, a plastic surgeon makes a complete lift of SMAS layer.

Phases of face SMAS lift:

1. A plastic surgeon makes an incision along the ear

2. Then the skin together with SMAS layer is separated

3. The surgeon shifts and attaches SMAS in a new position

4. Then excessive skin is removed and the incisions are stitched up.

Space lifting

SMAS layer consists of musсles that are positioned in different directions. During space lifting, instead of moving the whole SMAS layer, the surgeon works on every muscle, shifts them in different directions and attaches them in different positions.

Phases of Space lifting:

1. A plastic surgeon makes an incision along the ear

2. Then the skin is separated

3. SMAS is cut, shifted and attached in a new position.

4. Then stitches are placed on SMAS, excessive skin is removed and cosmetic suture is applied.


MACS lift stands for minimal access cranial suspension lift, and means a face-lift through the smallest possible access.

MACS lift phases:

  1. A plastic surgeon makes an incision along the ear
  2. Then the skin is separated from SMAS
  3. Then a stitch is put through the SMAS structure
  4. The surgeon pulls the thread, SMAS tightens and gets lifted.
  5. Finally, the surgeon removes excessive skin and applies cosmetic stitches.

During MACS lift, a plastic surgeon tightens SMAS by placing stitches.
