Abstract Between November 1999 and February 2005, 450 minimal access cranial suspension (MACS) lifts were performed. Starting with the idea of suspension for sagging soft tissues using permanent purse-string sutures, a new comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation was developed in which the vertical vector appeared to be essential. The neck is corrected by extended submental liposuction and strong vertical traction on the lateral part of the platysma by means of a first vertical purse-string suture. The volume of the jowls and the cheeks is repositioned in a cranial direction with a second, slightly oblique purse-string suture. The descent of the midface is corrected by suspending the malar fat pad in a nearly vertical direction. In 23 cases (5.1\%), the result in the neck was unsatisfactory, and additional work had to be done secondarily, or in later cases, primarily. The problem that appeared was unsatisfactory correction of platysmal bands (resolved with an additional anterior cervicoplasty) or vertical skin folds that appeared in the infralobular region (corrected with an additional posterior cervicoplasty). This article describes two ancillary procedures that, although not frequently necessary, can optimise the result of MACS lifting. This article was published in Aesthetic Plast Surg and referenced in Reconstructive Surgery & Anaplastology
