The incisions are made under the cover of the hair line which allows the surgeons to remove the excess tissues and tighten the skin. Mini face lifts are generally known as the “weekend facelifts”, it improves the appearance of jowls and neck in no time, allowing the patient to get back to work after the weekend.

For anyone with drooping eyebrows, this procedure helps in lifting the lowered eyebrows, without the use of a complete brow-lift procedure that is move invasive and requires a longer time in healing and recovering. The incisions in this case are small and generally use the hairline (for patients with higher foreheads) and for patients with lower hairline, the incisions are made within the hairline.
MACS Lift/ Quick Lift – The Quick lift technique and MACS are both modifications for the S-lift techniques. Both these procedures fall in within the traditional facelift and S-lift techniques for both results and invasiveness. Both these techniques require a longer recovery time period and offer even more dramatic results – an absolute choice for patients with moderate facial aging.
Traditional Face Lift – This procedure is the best choice for patients who want an optimal correction of mod level facial changing. In this case the incisions are made into the hairline and below the chin as well. The skin is dissected from the muscles lying underneath the area in concern which allows tightening of the same face and neck area. The bands of muscle in front of the neck are sutured together and are divided for a smoother, defined, and contoured neckline.
The excess fat of the jowls and neck is removed and as needed the skin is re-draped in a very natural way, while the excess skin is removed both from behind the ears and in front. This gives surgeons the most dramatic yield and a very long lasting effect. The sutures are even removed 6 to 7 days after and the patients can return to work generally 10 days and can resume exercises 2 weeks after surgery.
