A facelift is usually done to tighten up the skin of the face but as we age we lose volume and often fillers are required. Short scar or mini lifts combined with repositioning of the skin are call MACS facelift or sometimes a SMAS facelift. Many surgeons will use fat grating but that is unpredictable and my preference is the long term filler Artefill now known as Bellafill. It is 100% predictable, avoids a secondary surgery (liposuction) and gives very smooth results. On occasion we can tighten the skin with simpler measures like laser or chemical peels.
