The Swoosh

PROBLEMS WITH PREVIOUS FACELIFTS

The Swoosh:

Older facelifts take the SMAS (the underlying support structure of the face) loose from the only place possible, near the ear and below the lateral cheekbone. Although trying to “lift” the face, the only direction possible is up and back. With these techniques, the central face remains mostly unmoved. This is why some people developed the “Mid-face Lift,” a procedure totally unnecessary with Today’s Facelift and Dr. Buchanan’s advanced Lower Blepharoplasty. As time goes by, the unfixed central face descends more than the relatively scared lateral face. This creates a “Swoosh” like appearance, occasionally with bands from the mouth, upward and lateral. The more sun damaged, the worse this appears.

A secondary facelift by Dr. Buchanan using Today’s Facelift corrects this problem by lifting and securing the mid-face and cheek, correcting the pull to a natural upward direction. This repositions the entire face to its original position.
