What is a J-lift type of facelift?
A J-lift type of face lift is what is considered a short scar or minimal incision face lift. These face lifts are more commonly known as MACS (minimal access cranial suspension) lifts and have been coined the “weekend face lift”. All of these face lifts are designed to moderately improve the jowls and neck while enabling the patient to return to moderate activity levels in about half the time as a normal face lift. I do use the MACS face lift procedure in many individuals and the results are terrific and the patients have been very pleased with their relatively easy recovery.
