SMAFS ( Superficial Musculo-Aponeurotic-Fatty System ) was discovered at the start of new millennium, by Dr.H.A.Khawaja, MD, Specialist European Plastic Surgeon. It lead to a change in SMAS concept and different types and anatomic variants of SMAFS were described by Dr.Khawaja and their importance in Face Lift Surgery was signified. This was published in several books and cosmetic surgery articles over the years: Advanced Surgical Facial Rejuvenation ( Springer-Verlag ), Simplified Cosmetic Surgery, Simplified Aesthetic Surgery, Simple Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery, Meso-American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery etc.
In SMAFS face lift, the incision is smaller, and mostly hidden, the various portions of SMAFS are plicated and different techniques are used for plicating individual SMAFS muscle groups. It is done totally in local anesthesia and takes around 2-3 hours for full face and neck lift. The double chin is corrected, neck SMAFS is lifted and plicated separetely. Excess skin, which has been marked before, is removed prior to plicating the SMAFS. The results of SMAFS face lift are more durable and refined than any other face lift. The results last for a life time. The scar becomes completely imperceptible after a few weeks. Final recovery time is about a week to 10 days, when all stitches are removed. It is walk in walk out surgery. Final results are seen as soon as after 1 week. Results are not only excellent, but also guaranteed. You go back in years in decades !
