See below to check criteria you should check before your facelift surgery.

1. What facelift method is the doctor performing?

There are many different facelift methods that are available. Depending on the facelift method, the effectiveness and duration of the lift differs drastically. Simpler procedures such as thread lifting lifts of the skin layer with simple thread. While the procedure itself is much simpler, the thread cannot pull the skin layer effectively. In order to have an effective and long lasting facelift result, “High SMAS Facelift” is recommended. High SMAS Facelift not only pulls the skin layer, but also pulls SMAS layer, which is underneath the skin layer. By pulling and removing excess skin and SMAS layer, the result is very long lasting.
