FIRST IMPRESSIONS: The face is the first thing people notice about you. It is what they make their first impression on.
INSIDE MATCHES THE OUTSIDE: With modern medical technology and a general healthier outlook on life, people are living longer. In many cases people want the outside to match the youthful feeling they have on the inside.
MAINTENANCE: Much like the inner feeling of youth, many people feel like a facelift is simply general maintenance. You take care of your house, your car, the rest of your body, keeping up with the aging process is simply good body maintenance.
SELF-CONFIDENCE: As with most cosmetic surgery procedures, the biggest reason people consider facelift surgery is to boost their self-confidence. Looking into the mirror and seeing the person you knew to be you years before can increase your self-esteem and confidence in daily life.

By making incisions within the hairline above and behind the ear, nobody will know you’ve had a facelift procedure unless you tell them. Your surgeon then takes the loose skin and deeper muscles and pulls them tight, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles that show signs of aging. The skin is then reattached and tightened to hold the look in place, adding a new tone to your face. Any extra skin is removed and, if need be, excess fat can be suctioned off (this is usually done in the neck region). With a facelift you’ll appear refreshed and your youthful glow will beam back at you from the mirror once again.
The lunchtime or mini facelift is a surgical procedure that is performed in our office minor OR with mild sedation and a local anesthetic. The mini lift targets the facial aging changes mostly in the mid to upper face region. It does not correct severe jowling or the “turkey neck” appearance.
It is a rejuvenation procedure with limited incision and the usual recovery time is 5-7 days of bruising and “downtime”.
Many patients these days are treated inappropriately with repeated expensive “fillers” that do not quite fix the problem. Some patients need a min lift in conjunction with fillers or in place of the fillers alone.
Dr Mackay offers both surgery and fillers depending on what is indicated and what the patient’s budget allows.
Let us help you determine what is right for you.
