Like many of us, this patient was dealing with problem areas, specifically around his neck and jowls. He came in seeking a procedure to remove sagging skin as well as tighten the muscles and skin throughout his neck and jaw. We walked him through the multiple options commonly used to address this area, including surgical and nonsurgical facelifts. The ultimate choice was a type of facelift called a MACS lift, or commonly known as a neck lift. MACS lift is an abbreviation for ‘Minimal Access Cranial Suspension-lift.’
The procedure uses short incisions around the chin and neck to tighten skin and erase wrinkles. The incision is made in the natural crease in front of the ear, so any scarring is hidden and unnoticeable. Through this incision, we’re able to detach the skin from the cheeks up to the corner of the jaw near the neck. The underlying muscles are tightened and lifted vertically, creating a firm and smooth appearance. The procedure takes a maximum of 3 hours, and recovery is smooth. This standout patient was back to his regular activities in one week, with minimal bruising and scarring fading quickly.
