Quick Recovery Facelift


Signs of aging may be especially bothersome when they appear on the face and neck. For many men and women in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Dr. Gayner's quick recovery facelift is an ideal way to address these particularly visible areas. It gives the cheeks, jowls and neck a tighter appearance. In addition, a quick recovery facelift can soften deeper wrinkles or creases. Dr. Scott Gayner performs a quick recovery procedure (sometimes know as the MACS-Lift) as an alternative to traditional facelifts. As you can see in the table below, the quick recovery facelift is as effective as a traditional facelift and offers additional benefits.

The Quick Recovery Facelift Procedure

During Dr. Gayner's quick recovery facelift procedure, excess skin is removed and underlying tissue is tightened. A traditional facelift involves a long incision and disturbs a large area of skin. The quick recovery facelift uses only a short incision in front of the ear. Because a shorter incision is used, people usually experience only minimal bleeding during the procedure and less bruising or swelling after the procedure.

Not ready for surgery? Instead of a facelift, Pennsylvania plastic surgeon Dr. Gayner may suggest other cosmetic surgery procedures like eyelid surgery in Harrisburg or non-surgical facial procedures such as dermal fillers or BOTOX® Cosmetic.

Quick Recovery Facelift for Men

Dr. Gayner takes a patient's gender into account during any procedure and uses specific techniques to enhance masculinity for male patients. Because droopy facial skin can create jowls, a quick recovery facelift can be especially valuable for men who want to restore the masculine look, which is often characterized by a chiseled jawline.
