Experience with the MACS (Minimal Access Cranial Suspension) facelift

Dr. Lawrence Gray presented his technique of Minimal Access Cranial Suspension Facelift at the annual meeting of the New England Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Portsmouth, NH, August 2, 2016 - Dr. Lawrence Gray presented his technique of Minimal Access Cranial Suspension Facelift at the annual meeting of the New England Society of Plastic Surgeons held at the Mount Washington Hotel Sunday June 9th, 2016. The MACS facelift is a short scar technique that avoids alteration of the hairline and avoids open neck incisions and the associated complications. Dr. Gray studied 178 patients over an 11-year period from 2005 through 2015. All 178 patients were outpatients and had minimal anesthesia.

The advantages of the MACS facelift surgical technique are a natural appearance, avoidance of visible signs of surgery, avoidance of complications, quick recovery and minimal scars. The technique involves no cautery, no open neck incision and no drains, which is an important feature. Patients find drains to be very uncomfortable. The removal of the drains causes patients anxiety and soreness. The MACS facelift is a much shorter length operation than the traditional method. There is less dissection and risk to nerves and muscles.

Dr. Gray found that he obtained better face and neck contours than with traditional techniques for facelift. Specifically, Dr. Gray obtained a better definition of the neck and jaw line because the muscles are pulled superiorly reversing the effects of gravity. Other techniques pull laterally and can create a widened mouth or unnatural lines on the face. There is no need to open the neck with the MACS technique.

Patients are very happy with the shorter scars of the MACS facelift as compared to the traditional method. The MACS technique avoids alteration of the hairline and nerve injuries do not occur with this technique.

“My patients have also been very pleased with the quicker recovery time with the MACS facelift”, states Dr. Gray. “The traditional facelift takes up to one month to recover. There is significantly less swelling than with traditional techniques and patients are typically in the public in less than a week compared to having to hide out for 4 to 6 weeks with the traditional method.”

There is also minimal discomfort from the MACS facelift. Most patients require only minimal use of pain management medications. With the traditional method, there was more pain and swelling. The MACS facelift can be performed on patients with diabetes or high blood pressure because it’s safer than the traditional method due to limited undermining of the skin with the MACS facelift.
