A Minimally Invasive Alternative to Traditional Facelift
MACS Mini Facelift Mexico
The results of a facelift are truly fantastic – the procedure can take years off of the appearance of the face, making the patient look and feel rested, refreshed, and beautiful. However, certain people may be hesitant to undergo a traditional facelift. To satisfy these patients, Perfection Makeover and Laser Center performs the MACS mini facelift at our Cancun, Mexico surgical facility. The MACS mini facelift produces virtually the same results as a traditional facelift, without many of the challenges posed by traditional surgery (e.g., patients recover much quicker from a mini facelift than from a traditional facelift surgery).
What Is a Mini Facelift?
A MACS (Minimal Access Cranial Suspension) mini facelift is a variation on the full facelift, though less invasive, and without the expense and downtime associated with traditional surgery. It also differs from a traditional facelift in that it targets specific areas of the face instead of taking a more global approach. The procedure can take up to 10 years off of your appearance, by removing excess sagging skin from the lower face and neck, and tightening the underlying facial layers. This is done through an “S” shaped incision in the crease in front of the ear. The incision is designed in a way that makes it almost invisible over time. The mini facelift refines the contours and improves facial tone to give the appearance of being well-rested and refreshed.
Ideal candidates for a MACS mini facelift have a bit of sagging and drooping around the cheeks, jowls, and neck area, but have strong bone structure and some skin elasticity. Mini facelift candidates at our practice are usually in their 40s-60s, but occasionally younger or older patients choose to reap the rewards of this procedure as well. Candidates should be in good health, and psychologically stable with appropriate, realistic expectations of the surgery. The mini facelift will improve the appearance of the face, and minimize small flaws (e.g., lines and wrinkles), but it will not totally transform any of the facial features.

Extended MACS Mini Facelift
An extended MACS lift involves the placement of sutures to retain fullness in the cheeks. The fat pad naturally descends as we age, and can deepen the fold running from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth; the sutures elevate it to produce fullness in the cheeks and make this fold less prominent.
Benefits of a MACS Mini Facelift
The advantages of a mini facelift over a traditional facelift include:
Less post-operative pain, swelling, and bruising
Less overall scarring
Uses local anesthesia / oral sedation
