Our face has to endure a lot of outside influences, such as sunlight and pollution. They influence the health and appearance of our faces, and other factors, like stress, smoking, age and gravity, impact our faces as well. A facelift can be the solution to neutralize these effects.
What do we mean by a facelift?
A facelift consists of a series of possible plastic surgeries, and therefore forms a category of plastic surgery in itself. The forehead lift, mid-face lift and neck lift are some examples. A facelift can be tailored to fit each individual patient.
With the classic facelift, we make an incision from before the ear to behind it, tighten the hypodermic tissues such as fat and muscles, and remove the excess skin.
Liftings are especially interesting for softening folds in the lower half of the face. This usually consists of lifting the cheeks and neck. To complete or improve a facelift, numerous additional treatments are possible, such as eyelid correction, eyebrow lift, smoothing the wrinkles of the upper lip, and laser treatment for the very fine facial wrinkles.
The mini facelift: what is it exactly?
A MACS-lift or mini facelift is in fact a limited lift, both in the length of the incision and in the extent of the dissection. The MACS (Minimal Access Cranial Suspension) lifting technique is new, widespread and popular because the recovery takes less time. The results are good and remain over a longer period of time. The innovation is in the application of support wires that suspend the subcutaneous tissues upwards (cranial suspension).
A mini lift is recommended to freshen up a face if the damage is not too significant. It is usually used from the age of 45. Shorter healing times, fewer risks and shorter scars are the most important benefits.
