With ages, the skin looses its elasticity and skin tone and eventually leads to fine and coarse wrinkles. A facelift (lifting) is the surgical procedure to improve the appearance of facial wrinkles, jowls and excess of facial and neck skin.

A face lift (lifting) is a plastic surgery procedure that can remove excess fat, tighten muscles, and redrape the skin of the face, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

Dr. Cabrera uses MACS lift technique in order to get a natural and effective facial rejuvenation, avoiding the unnatural changes of the classic facelift.
