The MACS (Minimal Access Cranial Suspension) facelift is designed to give patients a subtle, refreshed, and more youthful look, without the intense recovery period as compared to a traditional facelift. Sometimes, it may be called a mini-lift.
It is done with small incisions made. Beginning at the hairline just above the crease of the ear, and end at the earlobe. It lifts the subcutaneous tissues to create a lifted look. Because it’s a less extensive procedure, the MACS facelift has a quicker recovery time than a full facelift.
However, MACS Facelift tends to be more suitable for patients with moderate sag.
