Also more commonly known as MACS lift (Minimal Access Cranial Suspension)
which is a short incision face lift.
Despite many efforts of maintaining our youthful look,
gravity and aging slowly but surely create droopy cheeks, deep nasolabial folds (smile lines),
marionette lines (lines under mouth corner), undefined jawline, double chin, and turkey neck.
Signs of low skin elasticity
Generally, in our 20~30s, signs of aging in the face and neck gradually show
as our once defined and tight jawline begin to become loose, smile lines start to become
visible, and the face begins to look flat as we lost our face volume. From the 40s and above,
our face continues to become droopy with deeper smile lines, marionette lines, jawline
becomes more undefined, double chin becomes visible from any angle, or turkey neck starts
to show. These signs of aging may also become visible faster depending on genetics and habits.
Skincare, botox, filler, laser lift, thread lift, or non incision face lift has more limitations
compared to face lift, therefore, if you want to have a definite and more permanent
anti-aging result, then you can get face lift surgery. Face lift is a surgery that improves
facial sagginess and wrinkles from mid to lower face by lifting the skin, muscle, and
SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) layer. The main benefit of face lift surgery is
that it can remove excess and saggy skin, thus, resulting in dependable and long lasting results.
What will get improved if I have facelift surgery?
SMAS layer is a very thin muscle layer that covers all surfaces of the face and transmits
the movement of facial muscles to the skin. SMAS layer is sensitive to gravity, therefore,
it creates wrinkles and causes saggy skin as time goes by. If only the skin layer is lifted,
then signs of aging will be visible again due to the SMAS layer. In order to obtain
a stronger lifting effect, it is important to improve the SMAS layer.
Skin opening area difference for Elasticum face lift and MACS face lift
Depending on the case a combination of face lift and Elasticum thread may be recommended. Elasticum face lift is a surgical procedure with the fast recovery benefit of Elasticum thread and definite lifting effect of MACS face lift.
With Elasticum face lift, skin opening can be minimized greatly compared to face lift, therefore,
the recovery period is significantly faster.
After being perfectly inserted by our board-certified anti-aging specialist,
the Elasticum thread acts as an artificial ligament and improves skin elasticity and softness.
Thus, creating the result of a fresh and lifted face with natural facial movement.

The incision plan will be depending on the patient’s case. If a neck lift is necessary, then the incision might be made along the hairlines behind the ears.
Placement of the incision in front of the ear
If an incision in front of the ear is necessary, then our board-certified anti-aging specialist will place the thin incision right in the lines along with the ear shape so it will not be easily visible.
