There are many patients who enter Dr. Korman’s Mountain View office wishing for the cosmetic results of a facelift, without going through the extensive surgery and recovery process. A short incision facelift, or MACS lift, gives these patients a much shorter procedure that is basically only the first half of a full-facelift but still tightens and contours the face. Mountain View patients who choose to refresh their face with a MACS lift love that the recovery is quick and leaves them with a rejuvenated, youthful appearance. Contact Dr. Korman’s Mountain View facility for more information on this procedure and if you are a good candidate.

What is a MACS Lift?

Dr. Korman begins this procedure by making an incision in front of the ear; however, it will not carry behind the ear or to the scalp. The tissue is then separated from the skin, allowing the surgeon to remove excess skin and tighten the muscle layer. Once the skin has been tightened, it is realigned, and the incision is closed. Dr. Korman makes this incision within the natural creases of your face, so scarring is minimal. The entire procedure lasts about 2 hours, and at the end, Mountain View patients no longer have the sagging skin that was showing the first signs of aging. Sometimes it is combined with SmartLipo of the neck for even better contouring.

What to Expect Following a MACS Lift?

After this procedure, there may be slight swelling or bruising. This goes away fairly quickly, and most of Dr. Korman’s Mountain View patients are able to return to normal activity in a week. The patient’s entire look will not be changed; however, it will appear rejuvenated.
