Minimal access cranial suspension face lift [MACS lift]. This is a new technique pioneered by Drs Verpaele and Tonnard of Belgium. It offers the advantages of shorter scars, reduced operative time and less morbidity. This is a procedure that can comfortably be performed in the rooms on an out patient basis, reducing the costs dramatically.
The procedure is performed through a short scar in front of the ear. Two or three suspension sutures are placed to suspend the sagging soft tissues of the face.
