What is the modern facelift?

The Minimal Access Cranial Suspension Lift, also known as a MACS lift is a far less invasive form of facelift surgery. This advanced surgical technique is ideal for both men and women seeking:

  • Minimal scarring
  • Faster recovery times
  • Long-term lifting effects
  • Reduced signs of ageing
  • Immediate visible results

Benefits of cosmetic surgery

The face is considered one of the most important parts of your identity. With age, the effects of gravity, sun damage and lifestyle come into play, and can alter the appearance of a person’s face.

The modern facelift procedure can assist both men and women in reversing the signs of ageing by lifting and repositioning facial tissues such as skin, fat and supporting tissue to produce a more youthful appearance. This facelift technique involves less undermining of the skin than the traditional facelift and does not require exposing the facial nerves. The surgery time is also reduced, taking an average 2 hours rather than 4-5 hours required for a traditional facelift.

MACS Lift Procedure — Dr Tony Prochazka

MACS facelift recovery time

Some surgeons refer to the modern facelift as a “weekend facelift”with some patients can returning to work as early as a week after surgery. While results can be seen almost immediately, final results are usually are usually achieved after approximately three months.

Since mini facelift surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, you will return to  home the same day as the surgery. You may be given a compression garment to wear home.


The modern facelift can provide incredible results lasting up to 10 years, but it is important to understand the ageing process continues. Over time, even refined tissues age. There are several types of non-surgical and minimally invasive techniques that can help enhance and maintain your results such as anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. You should also maintain a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet, regular exercise, limited alcohol consumption, and abstinence from tobacco.

The cost for the modern facelift procedure is $12,800 – $14,200.

A suitable candidate for a facelift may have experienced a loss of skin elasticity and muscle tone surrounding the face and neck area. For a more accurate assessment or to determine if our modern facelift is right for you, book a comprehensive consultation.
