The facelift procedure offered at ICCM can assist both men and women in reversing the signs of ageing. It does this by lifting and repositioning facial tissues such as skin, fat, and supporting tissue to produce a more youthful appearance.

What is the MACS facelift recovery time?
Some surgeons refer to a MACS lift as a “weekend facelift” because some patients can return to work as early as a week after surgery, however 2 weeks off work is recommended. Swelling and bruising usually subside with 1-2 weeks. While results can be seen almost immediately, final results are usually achieved after approximately three months.
Since mini facelift surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, you will return home the same day as your surgery. You may be given a compression garment to wear home.
