We are pleased to offer the MACS facelift as part of our face & neck procedures at Forever Faces Plastic Surgery in Raleigh, a perfect solution for patients who have less dramatic signs of aging and prefer a much shorter recovery time. Dr. Spence is an exceptionally talented plastic surgeon who has performed the MACS facelift technique for over a decade. The MACS lift is a type of mini facelift that uses a short-scar incision technique. MACS stands for minimal access cranial suspension; true to its name, it only requires minimal access to the underlying facial tissues in order to tighten and lift facial structures to a more youthful position. While this facelift is less invasive compared to a traditional or component facelift, it is still a proven and effective procedure that can provide complete rejuvenation for the right patient.
With much less downtime and limited incision, the MACS facelift can address the following aging concerns:
- Hallowed or Deflated Cheeks
- Downward Turning Corners of the Mouth
- Loose or Sagging Neck
The MACS facelift is easily combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures. Dr. Spence uses his comprehensive knowledge and individualized approach when determining which procedures will bring you the most refreshed and balanced results. Commonly, Dr. Spence uses fat transfer along with the MACS lift to restore volume to the cheeks or an eyelid or brow lift to rejuvenate the eyes. Wrinkles and fine lines can be smoothed with a number of non-surgical treatments such as chemical peels, injectables or laser resurfacing.
Who Is a Candidate for a Mini Facelift?
The MACS lift or mini facelift is ideal for men and women who have mild to moderate signs of facial aging. A thorough consultation and evaluation from Dr. Spence can more accurately determine whether or not a MACS facelift is right for you. Dr. Spence carefully considers a number of factors, such as your skin elasticity and muscle tone as well as your unique aging patterns of aging. At Forever Faces Plastic Surgery, we realize that each patient ages differently and that your facelift and other cosmetic procedures should be tailored just for you in order to produce the best possible outcome.
