Can MACS Facelift procedures be performed under twilight sedation?

Question:Your Questions Answered by the Surgeons at Aurora Clinics

Dear Aurora Clinics, could you tell me if a MACS Facelift can be carried out using twilight sedation? I look forward to hearing from you.


Thank you very much for your enquiry. It is certainly possible to perform a MACS facelift under twilight sedation if this is your preference. This would involve a milder dose of general anaesthetic, so that you are sedated but not fully unconscious throughout your MACS facelift operation.

The initial thing to do would be to schedule a consultation with one of our specialist surgeons to see if you are suitable for a MACS lift.

Alternatively, if you send us a photograph of your face from five different angles which would include straight on, at a 45° angle from the right and left and a photo from the side, we would be delighted to give an opinion as to whether you would be suitable for a MACS Facelift.

Many thanks for your enquiry. We look forward to meeting you in the near future and offer a consultation should you decide to proceed further.

Best Wishes,

The Aurora Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Team
