The SMAS facelift technique is a groundbreaking technique that lifts the underlying muscular structure separately from the skin. The SMAS (Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System) is a layer of smooth connective tissue. This surgical technique produces remarkably natural-looking results – not a tight or pulled look – a real concern for men.
The procedure is an appropriate treatment for the following facial issues:
As a man, if you have become annoyed with the signs of facial aging, you may be a good candidate for our advanced male facelift surgery. A candidate for this procedure is experiencing saggy face and neck skin and tissue, and has lost the firm, defined jawline that signals youth and vitality. You should be in good general health and able to safely undergo surgery. You should be at a healthy weight and have maintained some degree of skin elasticity.
Your medical history will be reviewed to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure. A SMAS facelift for men addresses the lower portion of the face, from cheeks to upper neck. For issues such as droopy eyelids or deep brow creases, other procedures such as an eyelid lift or brow lift can be performed in the same surgical appointment.
The goal of the surgery is to restore your facial appearance, so it looks younger, more vital, and more appealing, free from the sagging skin, tissue, and wrinkles associated with the aging male face. The skills with which the procedure is performed has everything to do with the result – always choose your plastic surgeon with great care.
Dr. Ditesheim is highly respected in his field, has published research on his techniques, and is often called upon to present his techniques at local, regional, and national plastic surgery meetings.

The procedure requires several hours, typically between two to five. It is performed at our accredited surgical suite, where we adhere to the most stringent patient safety standards. As the patient is under general anesthetic, there is no discomfort involved.
When you awaken after surgery, your face will be bandaged to keep the incisions safe and the area firmly protected, to help limit bruising or swelling. The sutures are removed after about five to ten days, depending upon the rate at which you heal. Recovery requires a few weeks, but the facial rejuvenation improves even more over the following months. The result will look like you – as you were in your earlier years.
