One of the most popular surgical aesthetic enhancement procedures is facelift surgery, designed to significantly reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles and other signs of aging in the face. Over the years, techniques for providing patients with facelift surgery have seen remarkable innovations that improve results and quicken the procedure and recovery time. One of these procedures is the MACS Lift, also known as the Short Scar Facelift. The MACS Lift is able to produce more natural-looking results by lifting the skin vertically instead of horizontally, eliminating the risk of attaining a “windswept” look. Plus, the MACS Lift uses smaller incisions that are hidden within the hairline, and offers a shorter and easier recovery period. One of our plastic surgeons, Dr. Vincent DiGregorio, has been at the forefront of the MACS Lift technique. Dr. DiGregorio, along with many of our experienced doctors here at LIPSG, is extremely adept and experienced with all manner of facial plastic surgery procedures and can provide you with results that look natural and not “windblown.” At the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group, our goal is to provide you with safe, effective procedures that do not give you the appearance of someone who has had plastic surgery.
Contact our LIPSG plastic surgeons to schedule a consultation for MACS Lift (Short Scar Facelift) at our Long Island, New York practice. At this initial consultation, you will be provided with a computer-generated image of how the results may look once the procedure is complete. The Vectra 3-D imaging system combines pictures of your face with specific medical data to form a digital photo of the likely outcome, before you even step into the operating room!
About MACS Lift
Developed in 2002, the MACS Lift stands for Minimal Access Cranial Suspension and is often appropriate for patients who desire mid-facial rejuvenation. While most patients who opt for this procedure are typically those who are under 60, MACS Lift can also be performed on older patients. The MACS Lift is designed for a bit more subtle rejuvenation – focusing on smoothing out the cheeks, reducing the appearance of jowls, and softening out wrinkles and creases in the nasolabial area (the region between the nose and mouth).
Please contact one of our LIPSG plastic surgeons for an initial consultation. We will be happy to discuss all aspects of the MACS Lift, including risks and benefits, and address any concerns you may have.
