DEEP PLANE FACELIFT - TURNING BACK TIME
At what age does a facelift make sense: at 40, 50, 60? "When the perceived age no longer matches the reflection in the mirror and minimally invasive methods are no longer effective, is the right time for a facelift," says Prof. Dr. E. Magnus Noah.
The facelift is the supreme discipline of aesthetic plastic surgery and its results are unrivalled. No other procedure is able to correct the signs of ageing in the face so effectively. "State-of-the art is the SMAS facelift," explains facelift expert Noah. With this procedure, not only the skin is tightened, but also the underlying deeper tissue of muscles, fat and connective tissue.
The so-called SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) plays the main role in the complex ageing processes of the face: if its elasticity decreases, the face sags downwards and loses its youthful contour.
"The fear of a surgical lift is unfounded, because thanks to innovative surgical techniques, a lift today is less invasive than in the past. The combination with autologous fat and, if necessary, eyelid plastic surgery allows for natural and harmonious results," explains Prof. Noah, who performs a further development of the SMAS lift - the so-called Deep Plane Facelift - at the Noahklinik für Plastische Chirurgie in Kassel.
