ORLANDO, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 09/20/12 -- Many people are interested in cosmetically enhancing their facial appearance; however, the traditional facelift is often considered too invasive for some. In an attempt to help those seeking a less-invasive facelift alternative, board-certified Orlando plastic surgeon Dr. James Matas offers a state-of-the-art procedure called the MACS Facelift in which patients can achieve subtle enhancements and a more youthful look. Dr. Matas says, "The MACS Facelift is a procedure that uses shorter incisions with limited dissection, but has the capability of tightening the facial structures and significantly improving the aging face." He adds that he believes the technique is a great option for people interested in facial rejuvenation without extensive surgery.
Concerning candidacy, Dr. Matas says a patient with moderate jowling, moderate skin laxity, and mild neck skin looseness is generally the ideal candidate, although a necklift can be added or a traditional facelift may be recommended in the event of significant neck laxity. He also says the MACS Facelift can be combined with other procedures such as eyelid surgery or facial fillers to effectively achieve each patient's specific goals. Additionally, the Orlando plastic surgeon says he and his staff provide a high level of care before and after the procedure: "In our office we offer preoperative skin care treatments and a postoperative lymphatic drainage massage for the improvement of post-op swelling. With both a licensed medical aesthetician and massage therapist on the premises, these treatments are conveniently provided to our patients."
In regards to downtime following the procedure, Dr. Matas says, "Because of the shorter incisions and limited undermining, the recovery time for the MACS Facelift is shorter and compares favorably to the traditional facelift." He adds that due to the reduced operative time, the procedure is more cost-effective as well. When considering a plastic surgery procedure, Dr. Matas says patients should always visit a board-certified plastic surgeon. He says qualified surgeons have the training and experience necessary to provide the safest, most ethical treatments and procedures.
