It will probably come as no surprise that a facelift is one of our most sought after procedures we offer and are contacted about at Wentworth Clinic. Both male and females clients alike can find the natural ageing process a time of great concern, causing depression and even a lack of self-confidence.
A Joint Approach to Correct Ageing
Although many rejuvenating surgical techniques are described in published materials, and possible to carry out on isolated areas to correct the ageing process, we at the Wentworth Clinic have mastered a joint approach to correct ageing and to provide an un-operated end result.
We now recommend to the majority of our patients requesting a ‘full face lift’ that they undergo our technique, instead of MACS (minimal access cranial suspension), S. lift, extended S. lift, and short scar face lifts.
Our technique allows us to mobilise the tissues in a three dimensional way. Here the osteocutaneous, myocutaneous and the fasciocutaneous ligaments are mobilised. The descending fat such as SOOF (suborbicularis oculi fat), malar and buccal fat pads (mid-level facial cheek fat) are repositioned. The compartmentalised subcutaneous fat to which we give great importance, to be repositioned in the correct site in order to overcome the ageing nasolabial fold (smile lines).
In literature, the superficial musculo-aponeurotic system (SMAS) is given more importance since its identification and publication by Mitz and Peyronie in 1976 . There are so many modifications described toward SMAS management, including SMASectomy, imbrication and suspension.
At Wentworth Clinic, we believe the SMAS management alone is not sufficient to correct the mid-facial ageing. Hence, the repositioning of fat and replacement of compartmentalised subcutaneous fat are essential factors in our facelift.
Wentworth Clinic Technique
In our facelift technique, we mobilise the ligaments, reposition fat, and suspend subcutaneous fat, in addition to plicating the SMAS to the deep part of deep temporal fascia which will give not only more definition to the zygomatic arch, but also improve the lateral facial projection.
For the majority of patients, we recommend simultaneous Neck Lift as we believe neck and face are one anatomical unit’ which needs a collective correction.
