Face lift/ Macs lift – Face and neck skin lifting

If face lifting, in which the skin is tightened, is far back in the history of cosmetic (plastic) surgery – face lift + Smas lift is already considered to be outdated method which makes sense to be done only in cases of so-called “turkey neck “ – a novelty in the field of aesthetic/cosmetic surgery of face lift is a MACS lift.

 What kind of surgery is that?

This is a delicate, serious surgery which results in loose skin lifted and fullness and freshness of cheeks.

 The final result is rejuvenated face appearance like the one the patient had when he/she was ten-fifteen years younger. Whereas the classic face lifting changes the patient’s appearance, Macs lift retains the natural, fresh and youthful look of the face.

 What is preparation for the surgery?

Before scheduling your surgery, you are supposed to do the following analyses and bring your results with you:

1.            Blood type

We need a document where your blood type is stated. The surname in the document MUST be the same as the surname in your ID.

2.            Laboratory analyses (not older than two weeks):

• Complete blood count - erythrocytes, leukocytes, platelets, hemoglobin, hematocrit, iron, sedimentation

            • Biochemical parameters - urea, creatinine, glucose, bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase,                      transaminases (AST and ALT), electrolytes (potassium, sodium chlorides)

            • Coagulation parameters - APTT, prothrombin time and INR

            • Urine sediment

The most common reason for canceling the planned surgery is a bad result of some of these analyses.

For this reason, we insist that you do these laboratory analyses and send them to us before coming to the surgery.

  The price of the operation includes preoperative preparation: digital X-ray of the lungs, examination by a radiologist, examination by a cardiologist, EKG and examination by an anesthesiologist. These tests are done in our hospital.

  All possible, necessary additional analyses, e.g. breast ultrasound or thyroid hormone tests, will be charged separately and are not included in the price.

What kind of anesthesia is used for the intervention?

 Anesthesia with analgosedation, but also general anesthesia.

 When can I go home after the surgery?

  If it is done locally, the patient may go home the same day, and if it is done in general OETA the patient leaves the hospital the next day.

 What are the things I should not be afraid of after the intervention?

 Swelling and bruises are expected in the days after the surgery.

 There can be bleeding and facial nerve paresis which is transient.

 After what time can I return to normal daily activities?

Depending on complexity of the surgery, it takes 2-6 weeks to return to regular activities.


Examination and consultations are free of charge.
