Facial rejuvenation by surgery is often not within the financial reach of many. Some people are also bothered by the invasiveness of a full blown traditional facelift surgery. A solution to the latter concern is relatively less-invasive Minimal Access Cranial Suspension Lift or MACS lift, also known as a mini-facelift.
And if the costs of the surgery in your home country bother you, then you can explore the option of having a MACS lift in Thailand. This post endeavors to help you take an informed decision on traveling all the way to the Thai capital of Bangkok for a mini facelift surgery.
Benefits of Choosing Thailand for Mini Facelift
- Huge Savings: The cost of a MACS facelift in Thailand is almost 70% lower than the prices charged in Australia, the United States, the UK and Canada.
- Quick Scheduling of Surgery: Another advantage is the negligible wait-times in Thai hospitals.
- Competent Thai Plastic Surgeons:
- Also, you get prompt care by the highly experienced plastic surgeons of the country.
- We, at Medical Tourism Corporation, work with a team of highly proficient cosmetic surgeons in Bangkok, who have years of experience treating medical tourists from different parts of the world.
- No language barriers: These plastic surgeons are English-speaking and are sensitive to the needs of medical tourists.
- Vacation while you get treated: Thailand is a country that abounds with touristy offerings. The savings that you get on your mini-facelift can very well be used to enjoy a much-needed vacation.
MACS Lift Explained
- MACS facelift helps erase drooping and sagging facial features using a short incision.
- The surgery involves making an incision in front of the ear.
- The surgeon then tightens and repositions the underlying subcutaneous tissues using internal sutures.
- Redundant skin is excised and the skin flap is re-draped carefully.
- MACS lift helps get rid of excessive jowls and makes the jaw-line more prominent.
- It is often complemented with a blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery for more dramatic results.
- Besides mini lift, some of the alternative names of the surgery are S-Lift and soft-lift.
Who Makes a Candidate for MACS Facelift?
- If you are aged between 40 and 60 years, you make a good candidate for the surgery.
- MACS lift is also for you if you have sagging face and neck, and still have some elasticity left in your skin.
- You can also consider the surgery as a re-touch, if you have already had a traditional facelift in the past.
