Facelift and in-office MACSlift (mini facelift) procedures are of the most popular surgical procedures performed at Utah Facial Plastics. Both Dr. Scott Thompson and Dr. Douglas Henstrom are known for providing naturally beautiful results with both facelift options. Here are some of our recent reviews for facelifts and MACSlifts performed by both surgeons at Utah Facial Plastics.
Facelift vs MACSlift
First, let’s discuss the difference between a full facelift and an in-office MACSlift. A facelift is best for patients who are not only concerned with lower face aging but with moderate to severe neck laxity as well. A facelift is done in the operating room under general anesthesia as it takes longer for the physician to perform and is more comprehensive.
An in-office MACSlift is great for patients who are primarily concerned with laxity of the jowls. It does help with the neck but doesn’t involve the incision that goes in the hairline behind the ears that allows our surgeons to work more with the neck. You can see where the incisions are placed with each “lift” in a previous blog post HERE.
