As we grow older, we see manifestations of aging in all aspects of your being especially in our face. These physical manifestations are what awakened the human fantasies about the ‘Fountain of Youth’. The 11th Century race started the myth while later on, the 16th-century expeditions became the driving force to prove the existence of this century-long obsession.

But the truth of the matter is that man was meant to age. As we advanced technologically however, science is learning how to slow the aging process. And one of the best products of human science is the Facelift.

What is a Facelift?

Quickly defined,  a facelift is a surgical method that removes the excess facial skin to make the face appear younger.

This is because the aging human face loses elasticity (manifesting as looser skin) as well as  loses fat and muscle tone.

Additional procedures that may be necessary to achieve the best results including neck lift, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), liposuction, autologous fat injection, and removal of the buccal (cheek) fat pad, forehead lift, browlift, chemical or laser peel, and malar (cheek), submalar or chin implants.

What are the types of Facelifts?

People have this preconceived notion that the facelift is just one procedure. But in reality, there are different facelift procedures done by knowledgeable and credible plastic surgeons like Dr. Jun Caparas of Zi Institute to make the aging face youthful.

Below are the types of facelift that you need to be aware of just in case:

  • SMAS Facelift:

The SMAS facelift actually lifts the layer of tissue under your skin (also known as the SMAS layer). By doing this, the procedure helps eliminate the appearance of drooping facial features and loose neck bands.

  • MACS facelift:

The MACS facelift is a technique that utilizes short incisions, in order to improve mild jowls and sagging skin around the neck.

  • Full facelift:

This specific procedure rejuvenates all regions of your face.

The truth is, there is no fountain of youth. The 16th century Europeans didn’t find one – even to this day. But through the advancement of human science, we may not have to wait for long for the true “Fountain of Youth”.
