The goal is not to stretch or pull the skin, which is an obsolete technique.

The facelift aims to rejuvenate the face without changing its basic features. The main reason for looking for this procedure is usually the flaccidity lower jaw level, augmenting the wrinkles around the mouth, and gives a sad and tired look, completely changing the facial expression with which we communicate with others and see ourselves in the mirror.

Normally, people that choose to have a facelift, have done some basic aesthetic treatments, such as botulinum toxin and hyaluronic acid fillers, but either because they can no longer disguise aging or because they want a longer lasting results, the solution is a facelift.

This surgery is usually performed with local anesthesia with sedation and the main technique is SMAS – a deep lifting, which is not limited to “pulling” or stretching the skin. These are completely outdated concepts and are increasingly in disuse in the most develop countries.

Dr. Tiago Baptista Fernandes, as well as, Dr. David Rasteiro and Dr. Eduardo Matos have been increasingly specializing in facelift through specialization, presentation of clinical processes and by electing this procedure as one of the most transforming patients’ lives and boosting self-esteem.  Another technique widely used by Up Clinic surgeons is Lipostaminal Facelift, which consists of using one’s own fat, which after centrifugation joins plasma – rich in growth factors and stem cells – achieving e Lipostaminal Facial Rejuvenation.
