MACS facelifts are also called scar free face lifts for that of other more invasive face lifts, but the scar free face lift cost is less and most people to find the results more natural looking. 

Short Scar Facelift Surgery

During a scar free face lift, the surgeon usually uses only local anesthetic.  Other facelifts use general anesthesia.  This helps to reduce recovery time.  Short scar face lifts are also called “s-lifts”.  They are given the s-lift moniker thanks to “s” shaped incision that the surgeon makes.  Unlike other facelifts, there are no telltale scars behind the ears.  The procedure itself usually lasts for about one to two hours.  The skin and muscle are not separated as they are in other face lift procedures and this also improves recovery time.  The short scar facelift cost is worth every penny to most patients!
