San Francisco Cheek Lift Procedure
A Mini Face Lift to Add Youth to Your Appearance!
The upper facelift, which is also called a “mini” facelift, can be an excellent alternative to a full facelift. The mini facelift (technically known as an SMAS or S-lift) addresses problems with sagging jowls and often deep crease lines between the nose and mouth (nasolabial fold lines). If your neck is not the problem and you have minimal looseness of the skin in the neck, then you are an excellent candidate for a mini facelift in San Francisco, California.
The upper facelift procedure is less invasive than a full facelift and incisions are less extensive. During the procedure, the skin itself is not only tightened, but the lower layers (collectively known as the SMAS or Sub-Muscular Aponeurotic System) are tightened, which is just as important. The post-operative recovery is relatively short and typically painless. Most people will return to social activities or work after one week. An upper facelift can be done alone, or in conjunction with other facial cosmetic surgery procedures.
In summary, the upper facelift “mini” procedure can rejuvenate the face to a wonderfully youthful and harmonious contour without a full facelift and with much less recovery time.
