The process of ageing causes one to lose the supporting tissues and elasticity of skin. This along with the affect of gravity forces the tissues over the cheek area to sag down below jaw line. Face lift is a procedure performed to elevate the sagging tissues back to its original place.
This could be done by classical method or MACS face lift technique. The difference is minimal and barely visible scar with MACS face lift. Moreover the risk of injury to nerves over the face, which is a possibility with classical face lift, is never seen with MACS face lift.
The procedure could be done under local anaesthesia with sedation or general anaesthesia according to your preference. You could return home the same day and expected to be available for follow up for the next 10 days.
You could resume social life after three weeks.
