lower face lift

How does the lower face-lift differ in tightening of the checks or appearance of checks from a MACS-Lift ?

Answer: When you say lower facelift, that is a generic term whereas MACS lift is a specific term for a specific type of facelift. The MACS stands for minimal access cranial suspension lift in which tissues are lifted vertically and suspended to the bone of the arch in the outer cheek. There is not one right way to do a facelift and results really depend on the combination of the right procedure for you and the right Facial Plastic Surgeon who performs it. You can look for surgeons in your area in the Find a Surgeon section of this Web site. Best of luck!
