NEW YORK, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent in-depth study authored by top New York City Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Dr. Andrew Jacono in the May 2013 issue of Facial Plastic Surgery Clinics of North America reveals that consumers expect less invasive facelifting procedures and that techniques are adapting to give consumers what they want. The study, entitled "The Modern Minimally Invasive Face Lift: Has It Replaced the Traditional Access Approach?," takes a look at patient expectations and how surgical techniques need to adapt.

The primary finding of the study indicates that as subspecialties of minimally invasive surgery have evolved, patients are shying further and further away from longer incision techniques.  Instead, today's patients favor techniques that offer not only smaller incisions and less scarring but also, a shorter postoperative recovery and less risk. 

Due to the heightened expectation surrounding surgical procedures, an increasing number of surgeons are adapting to minimally invasive methods. One particular procedure that has been adapted to meet the growing needs and expectations of patients is the MADE facelift, or minimal-access deep-plane extended vertical vector facelift. Developed by Dr. Jacono, the MADE facelift is a hybrid technique which incorporates shorter incisions into a deep plane approach. This revolutionary procedure provides patients with not only longer lasting results, between ten and twelve years, but also a significantly shorter recovery time.

"The MADE facelift is the most cutting edge approach to facelifts practiced today," said Dr. Jacono. "This study reaffirms the fact that patients are looking for procedures that offer minimally invasive techniques and long lasting results. The MADE facelift offers both."
