What is Elastic Thread MACS Lifting?

Aging and sagging skin may be inevitable as you age; but fear not, Elastic Thread MACS Lifting available at our affiliated clinic can help to improve your overall facial appearance and restore youthful skin with just a minimally invasive facelift technique.

Known as a combination of Elastic Thread Lift and Minimal Access Cranial Suspension (MACS) Lifting, the procedure focuses on rejuvenating the lower and middle third of the face.

How It Works

Elastic Thread for the procedure is designed by Italy’s Dr. Capurro, a top global figure in the reconstructive surgery field. The thread has great elasticity, which has the ability to fuse with the surrounding tissue and function as a ligament. For the insertion of the thread, only a small incision is required; this reduces the recovery time and improves a less stressful experience.

With MACS, the procedure has an effective lifting by peeling both the skin and SMAS layer; excess skin and tissues would be removed while the remaining skin and muscles would be lifted and fixed in a better-elevated position.
