Also known as a rhytidectomy, a facelift is a surgical procedure used to refresh and rejuvenate the appearance of the face. During the procedure, loose skin and excess fat is removed from the face and neck, improving the appearance of both the patient’s skin and overall facial structure.
This procedure can be used to correct:
- Deep eyelid creases
- Deep creases along the nose and on the corners of the mouth
- Other wrinkles and fine lines
- Loss of skin tone
- Lack of facial definition
- Excess chin fat
This procedure typically takes between three and four hours to complete. Because a facelift is a serious surgical procedure, patients should expect to set aside at least two weeks before returning to their normal daily activities. Before undergoing this procedure. Dr. Mandraccia will discuss the details of the treatment and recovery process so patients know what to expect.
MACS Lift Mini Facelift
The Minimal Access Cranial Suspension lift, also known as the MACS lift, is a mini facelift procedure ideal for men or women interested in improving the appearance of the signs of aging. This procedure offers patients many of the dramatic improvements of a normal facelift with the benefits of shorter treatment and recovery times. However, because the MACS lift is less extensive than a traditional facelift, the results will be more subtle.
The MACS lift can be used to tighten sagging skin, brighten the eyes, and shape a more pleasing facial contour. Because only a small incision in front of the ear is made during treatment, patients experience only minimal post-procedure scarring and recovery time.
