What is a MACS facelift?

The MACS facelift is a surgical procedure to improve sagging in the mid and lower face.

Only minimal incisions are needed, so it’s often called a mini facelift. MACS stands for Minimal Access Cranial Suspension. The incisions needed are so small that some people refer to this as a non-surgical facelift.

The MACS-lift is suitable for people aged 40 to 55. It’s a short scar technique. It does not involve a long scar behind the ear. The jowl lift MACS produces adds to the fresh and natural appearance - rather than the stretched look associated with some traditional facelifts.

Please see below for full information on our finance options.


How is the facelift performed?

Small incisions are made at temples and in the natural creases in front of ears. The tissues under the skin are tightened. Stitches pass down to your neck, jowls, and cheek fat pads. You are likely to have liposuction under your chin at the same time – to removes fatty tissue from your neck. If your neck is particularly saggy the specialist surgeon might also make incisions behind your ears to correct that. It’s also possible for you to have eyelid surgery at the same time. The whole operation takes about three hours under general anaesthetic or local anaesthetic.

Recovery after the mini facelift

The benefit of having a MACS mini facelift is that it is typically less invasive than the traditional procedure.

You can expect a fresher appearance as a result – as well as considerable jowl lift. Recovery time will usually be shorter than is expected from traditional, more invasive facelifts.

On average you can expect to look around 8 - 10 years younger when you have fully recovered. The benefits will last around 10 years – though this will depend on the elasticity of your skin and your lifestyle. Diet, body weight and exposure to sunlight can also have an effect of course.

We offer combined cosmetic surgery, allowing you to have a MACS facelift and blepharoplasty in the one procedure.

Each patient is unique - different expectations and as such different requirements. We don't apply a "one size fits all" approach to cosmetic surgery, and as such the price of the surgery will depend on the exact requirements of your individual procedure. We have included an expected price range below, but really - we'd love to meet with you first to gain a better understanding of what you are looking for and what we can do to help you achieve the desired outcome.
