The mini-facelift is a planned aesthetic surgery intervention for the correction and elevation of soft facial tissues affected by the aging process.

The MACS facial rejuvenation technique has been recently designed by the Belgian doctors P. Tonnard and A. Verpaele, and today is very used because it is minimally aggressive and recovery is very fast, in an average of three weeks. The incisions on the skin are very short and wavy around the sideburns and only on the front of the ears. One of the great advantages of the intervention is that the effects of this surgery are still 10 years after the intervention; After this time, the result can be maintained by making small adjustments.

The mini-face lift allows highlighting the most attractive parts of the face: cheekbones, lips and eyebrows

The lifting of the tissues of the face is done with resistant threads that pull up the cheekbones , cheeks and neck , producing a very nice and fresh oval effect on the face. Usually the correction of the excess skin of the upper eyelids and removal of the fatty bags from the lower eyelids is carried out at the same time. It also improves the projection and volume of the most attractive and "sexy" areas of the face: the cheekbones , lips and eyebrows by injecting a little bit of own fat that is sucked with a syringe from an area where "on". It is done taking care at all times to the maximum details so that the final expression of the face and neck is fresh and always pursuing naturalness. Our key point is to avoid the expression of "frightened face" that is occasionally seen in the film stars operated.

The intervention is performed under general anesthesia, with a duration of 2 hours, including surgery to rejuvenate the eyelids, and requires two nights of hospitalization. Our hospital in Marbella is 10 meters from the beach with very "zen" facilities for recovery after surgery. The result of rejuvenation is very natural.

Key points of the facial mini-facelift

1.- greater filling of volume in the cheekbones, improving the oval of the face;

2.- elimination or diminution of the grooves and bags under the lower eyelids;

3.- rejuvenation of the mandibular line eliminating what are colloquially called "candies" and,

4.- stretching of the skin of the neck deepening the angle, eliminating the double chin and tensing the folds, the bands and the flaccidity of the skin.
