In this video the MACS-lift is presented as the cornerstone of our current concept of comprehensive facial rejuvenation. It effectively and safely treats the aging of the lower half of the face and the upper neck in the majority of aging men and women. The addition of microfat grafting to treat the age-related centrofacial deflation adds to the power and longevity of the rejuvenation, and also allows treatment of non-age-related features such as the tear trough and the nasolabial fold. To treat the category of patients with a more demanding neck laxity, platysmal bands and submental fat deposition we can add a subplatysmal fat resection via a submental incision, and/or a posterior subplatysmal neck plasty with posterior platysma suspension. All of these techniques are included in detail in this video, together with some theoretical considerations.
