Facelift Surgery in Macomb Michigan

Are you 55 years old but feel like you look much older? Dr. Michael Fozo in Macomb, Michigan offers customized facelift procedures that can help you look as vibrant and youthful as you feel. These procedures are tailored to each individual and are designed to give you a naturally radiant and rested appearance without appearing overdone or stretched. After the procedure, people won’t even know you had a facelift – they will simply notice how great you look!

A Facelift, also known as a Rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the signs of aging in the face and neck area. It can dramatically smooth the skin, re-suspend the underlying tissues to where they were in earlier years, and take years off of one’s appearance. Incisions vary, and the placement of them is an important part of the Facelift consultation. Minilifts, or short scar Facelift incisions, end just above the earlobe, and are best suited for those with milder laxity. For those with significant neck laxity, a platysma plication or corset platysmaplasty may be recommended to improve the jawline and reduce the platysmal bands. Other procedures, such as fat transfer, chin augmentation, and chemical peels, may be added to further enhance the results of the Facelift. Lakeshore Facial Plastic Surgery takes the time to listen to patients’ needs and develop a personalized treatment plan to meet their specific goals.

A consultative approach is taken for every patient interested in receiving a facelift from Michael Fozo MD. During the consultation, we discuss the reasons for wanting a facelift, the desired results, and any questions the patient may have. Additionally, this provides us with an opportunity to educate the patient on the procedure and dispel any myths. After a thorough evaluation of the patient’s medical history and current health status, we are able to determine which areas of the face need to be corrected and how to best achieve the desired results.

Mini Facelift – MACS

A mini facelift, also known as a MACS facelift, is a surgical procedure that is used to improve the appearance of the face by reducing wrinkles and sagging skin. It is a less invasive alternative to a traditional facelift, which can involve more extensive surgery and a longer recovery period.

The MACS facelift is designed to target the middle and lower portions of the face, such as the cheeks, jowls, and neck. It is often used to enhance the appearance of the jawline, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and restore a more youthful, rested appearance. The procedure usually takes about one to two hours to complete and recovery time is usually only a few days.

The MACS facelift is performed under local anesthesia, which means the patient is awake during the procedure. The surgeon will make small incisions in the areas around the ears and hairline. Through these incisions, the surgeon will then lift and reposition the underlying facial tissues and fat as necessary to create a more youthful look. The incisions are then closed with sutures and the patient is given a compression bandage to wear for a few days.

The results of the MACS facelift are typically seen immediately after the procedure. The face will look more lifted and refreshed, and the results can last up to five years or more. However, the results may be diminished over time due to the natural aging process.

As with any surgical procedure, there are some risks associated with the MACS facelift. These include infection, scarring, hematoma, nerve damage, and skin discoloration. It is important to discuss all potential risks and complications with your surgeon prior to undergoing the procedure.

The MACS facelift is an increasingly popular option for those looking to correct the signs of aging without the need for a more extensive and invasive procedure. It can help to restore a more youthful appearance without a long recovery period and offers long lasting results.
