Minimal Incision Lifting

SMAS, an area of musculature found under the skin that stretches out due to aging, is partially resected and lifted up to remove the wrinkles and make the face appear firmer and rejuvenated. iWELL’s minimal incision lifting procedure doesn’t merely lift the outer layer of the skin, but it is a double lifting procedure that also corrects the sagging muscles. It is a relatively simple procedure that produces definite and permanent results.

The submuscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) is arguably the most important layer in the minimal incision lifting procedure. SMAS refers to the fascia surrounding the muscles. It is a very thin layer that is found very close to the skin, and because it is so thin, it easily sags as a result of gravity acting upon it over time. iWELL’s minimal incision lifting procedure involves pulling up the aged SMAS under the skin, which effectively improves the appearance of wrinkles all over the face.

Minimal Incision Lifting Procedure

01 incision is made along the hairline near the temporary region and under the ears.
02 The SMAS tissue is separated and partially resected.
03 The remaining SMAS layer is secured on the temporal fascia in front of the ears to help pull up the skin.

with Unnoticeable Scarring

No matter how effective the lifting procedure is,

it cannot be called successful if it leaves behind visible scars.

iWELL’s minimal incision lifting procedure involves making an incision in the scalp, along the hairline in front of the ears, around the earlobes and behind the ears. The scar gradually diminishes and is difficult to see after some time.
