Medical tourism. Macslift procedure. Price macslift

Hi thank you for your question.Medical tourism has grown a lot during the last few years. Especially people who can´t afford surgery in their own country start to look around abroad, others just prefer not to be at home to be able to relax and recover better. Here in Cancun Mexico, prices for a complete MACS lift are around 4800 USD. No matter which country you go to to have your surgery done, the most important thing is that you choose a board certified plastic surgeon. Realself is a very good platform to find the right surgeon.

The Estimated Cost of a Facelift

Price of a #Facelift is always a concern when deciding whether or not to have a cosmetic procedure. Patients’ needs and goals vary, so there is no fixed price for a facelift. 

These are the contributing factors to the cost of a facelift:
  • Surgeon’s fee
  • Facility fee
  • Medication cost
  • Anesthesia fee
Estimated fees may also be found here on Real Self, and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery website.

Cheapest is not always the best. Never compromise quality for price or for a named procedures like MACS lift. Get a consultation with a board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon. You might need a mini-facelift or a standard facelift.

Hope this helps,

MACS lift cost

Thank you for your question.  Cost for surgical procedures is dependent on a number of factors, including operative time, facility/anesthesia fees, and the fee for the doctor.  Many of these fees are also dependent on geography.

While cost is important, value is even more important.  Cheapest isn't always best (and, actually, usually isn't).  I would visit with a few surgeons who are certified in their field, perform facelifts frequently, and have them explain in detail how their surgical approach will give you the results you desire.  You may find that different surgeons have different techniques, and a MACS lift may not be the best one for you.  Then, you can choose the surgeon that should give you a result you desire for a price you are comfortable paying.

Cost of a MACS Lift

Dear auden:

A "MACS" lift is one modification of a short scar lift. Other names include: Quick-Lift, Lifestyle_Lift, Swift-Lift and more. This procedure will vary between $5000 to $10,000 or more depending on the city or region it is performed. For Manhattan, expect the higher end. 

A MACS or any short scar lift limits the incision length and the suspension or lift of the soft-tissue SMAS layer. You may need longer incisions due to greater skin excess or differing SMAS techniques to suspend the soft tissues of the jowl, cheek and neck.

Please be sure that this is the correct procedure for you! Consult with a well versed, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or ENT Facial Surgeon to evaluate you and your tissues to recommend any of a spectrum of face and neck enhancements. Remember that it takes a highly qualified surgeon to match the patient to the procedure and NOT a procedure to any patient. 

I wish you the best!

The cost of a face lift

 The cost of a facelift is driven by 3 fees, which include time in the operating room, time under anesthesia, and the surgeon's fee for performing the facelifting procedure. In our practice, we performed an SMAS facelift, not a MACS type facelift for a variety of reasons. It's more important to pick your face lifting surgeon, not the technique. For many examples of SMAS face lifts, please see the link and the video below
