lower face lift

How does the lower face-lift differ in tightening of the checks or appearance of checks from a MACS-Lift ?

Answer: When you say lower facelift, that is a generic term whereas MACS lift is a specific term for a specific type of facelift. The MACS stands for minimal access cranial suspension lift in which tissues are lifted vertically and suspended to the bone of the arch in the outer cheek. There is not one right way to do a facelift and results really depend on the combination of the right procedure for you and the right Facial Plastic Surgeon who performs it. You can look for surgeons in your area in the Find a Surgeon section of this Web site. Best of luck!

surgeons in Maryland

Hello. I wanted to inquire about if there is a Face to Face program in Maryland or plastic surgeons who practice in Maryland who are affiliated with this program. Also, is the Face to Face program only for victims of domestic violence or does it fund plastic surgery for women with extreme medical depression due to disatisfication with their physical appearance.

i was referred to this site a few months ago ive been looking to sign up as a patient

Question: Hi My name is Darlene and I was referred to this site a few months ago. I would really appreciate it if someone can get back to me. I’ve been looking to sign up as a patient but can’t seem to find anything. Can you give me some information on how to sign up and what I would need to do to have my case approved by the AAFPRS? I’ve found a few Doctors in my area that participate in the humanitarian pro-bono program that is offered. This would be a life changing experience for me. I pray I can share my story/testimony and reach the right person. Thank you for your time.
