Why Dr Jack Zoumaras Artiste Face Lift Technique is Different
Minimising Facelift Scars
Dr. Jack Zoumaras places incisions along the shadows of the ear and behind the tragus to ensure that the incision will not be visible. The Facelift incision then extends along the temple hairline. This incision is placed at 45 degrees to the direction of the hair follicle to ensure hair grows through the incision, and you can never tell where it is. This is how Dr Jack Zoumaras achieves minimal scarring that is not visible to anyone.
The Results are Long Lasting
Dr Jack Zoumaras focus and dedication to Plastic Surgery of the Face is second to none. Dr Jack Zoumaras never retracts the skin whilst operating, instead he carefully instructs and directs his assistants to gently retract the skin with specific instruments (this way he can still control both aspects of skin and muscle without compromising either). This care and finesse, ensures the facial skin and underlying structures are handled with the best care and will remain healthy and undamaged. This keeps your skin healthy, vascularised for longer and your results will last the test of time.
No “windblown” or “pulled” Look
Dr Jack Zoumaras Facelift techniques are unique, he takes into consideration the anatomy of the ageing process and combines this with surgical skill, finesse and Facelift experience. All our Facelifts from the High SMAS Facelift to the Ponytail Technique do not pull or stretch the facial skin in a horizontal position. Rather the skin is redraped in a natural vertical direction to mimic our natural smile, vertically, in order to reverse the downward pull of gravity on your face and avoiding a “windswept” or “pulled” look.
No Surprises Here
No permanently “surprised looks” or unnatural contours when you smile with a Facelift at Artiste. Dr Jack Zoumaras restores anatomy to where it once was and even when glamorising the face, does so with sound principles, techniques and finesse in place, to ensure you look rejuvenated and amazing and not fake or surprised.
No Disturbing Your Hairline
The Facelift procedure is minimally invasive and will not distort the natural anatomy of your ear or affect your hairline at all. This is because the incision is carefully placed along the hairline bevelled at 45 degrees to ensure hair grows through the scar ensuring you will not see the incision and the hair line will not be disturbed.
No Pixie Ear Deformity
The ear lobe is not distorted which is a common facelift risk. This is because often the pull of the skin pulls the ear lobe down and distorts its shape, the same thing can happen with the contours of the ear and tragus. Dr Jack Zoumaras never puts too much tension on the skin; all the work is done in layers 2-5 and the skin is re-draped as a covering. This ensures that the tragus and ear lobe are not altered and look natural.
Dr. Jack Zoumaras chooses to shape and sculpt each Facelift patient’s face with finesse. All the internal layers are where the focus is, and the skin is re-draped naturally. This results in enhancing your youthful beauty instead of pulling and tightening your skin.
