Face-Lift - What is it
Time, gravity, sunlight, stress and smoking are only a few of the many adversely affecting factors that gradually alter the quality and elasticity of our skin. These procedures become mostly apparent in our face.
MACS-lift is the single most effective surgical method to correct the sagging tissues of the lower two-thirds of the face on a long-lasting basis with minimal discomfort for the patient.
Unlike older, more invasive face-lift techniques, in MACS- lift only a limited area of skin is dissected, making recovery period shorter.
The lax tissues are restored back to their original position through a small incision in front of the ear, and thus the loosened tissues of the cheeks, the jaw and the upper part of the neck are retightened. A small amount of excess skin is removed, and the incision, hidden in a natural crease in front of the ear and inside the hairy temple, becomes inconspicuous in 3-4 months.
A facelift can:
- improve many areas of the face in one surgery
- last for a decade, making you appear ten to fifteen years younger
- recontour the neck and jawline, improving their definition
- be combined with other rejuvenating procedures such as eye-lid surgery and fat-grafting
