Dr.Yaremchuk’s facelift technique results in a younger and natural, but not “done," look. The surgery is done in a deeper plane which results in a full-thickness skin and subcutaneous tissue flap, which is redraped and elevated vertically over a repositioned SMAS layer. This avoids the "windswept" effect of pulling back too severely only the top layers of soft tissue.

In addition to his expertise in rhytidectomy or facelift surgery, Dr. Yaremchuk is one of the few surgeons to perform subperiosteal midface lifts.This operation uses techniques from his experience in craniofacial surgery. It can be performed alone, in combination with a facelift, or during the placement of midface implants.

His paper describing these techniques for rejuvenating the brow, midface and neck was published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in 2000. Refinements and modifications have since been described in multiple papers and book chapters.

Dr. Yaremchuk will demonstrate his facelift technique at the faceeyesnose symposium in Warwick, Great Britain in May 2015.



The patient shown here underwent a lateral brow and subperiosteal midface lift (also known as a subperiosteal face lift), an eye lift (blepharoplasties) and a lower facelift.
