Discussing what a facelift involves and the history of facelifts is the discussion of the next video in our vlog series. Facelifts have become a popular procedure for many patients but many may not be entirely sure what the procedure entails. In this video, there is further information provided around plastic surgery for your face shortly after providing a brief overview of how the procedure became an option and how it has developed over time. Initially, facelift procedures were only concerned with parts of the face, however, as further research had gone on there were new discoveries which helped transform how facelift procedures could be conducted.
An important factor involved with facelift surgery is the manipulation of the SMAS layer which was discovered a few years after the introduction of facelift surgery. The SMAS layer is crucial in anatomy structure and it effectively changed the types of facelifts that were available. How the SMAS layer is manipulated can affect the eventual results of a surgical facelift procedure and the video provides further details about this through several diagrams and examples. This, combined with the platysma muscle found in the neck created one large anatomical structure which helped to change what was involved in a facelift procedure, making different types of facelifts available over time.
