MACS Lift Stockton

Dr Gerald N. Bock, MD California Skin & Laser Center Woman Touching Her Hair

Dr. Gerald Bock of the Stockton area enjoys providing a wide range of services to enhance patients’ appearance and help them look their absolute best. At the California Skin and Laser Center, our patients can achieve a more attractive look in a variety of ways. When they have problems with significant loose skin on the neck and jowls the MACS lift may be the best answers for their problem.

The MACS lift is a modified facelift procedure, often referred to as a short scar facelift that provides impressive results without the extensive risks and downtime typically associated with full facelift procedures performed by plastic surgeons. While the MACS lift is less invasive, the results achieved are far from minimal. Patients have noticeable improvements without looking as though they have had “work done.” This procedure is done a little differently from a traditional face lift, producing a lift that is primarily directed upward resulting in a more natural appearance.

Many patients like the idea of having a procedure done while not being under general anesthesia. The MACS lift is done under local anesthesia and patients are awake yet comfortable throughout their treatment. Patients who are interested in what they can expect before, during, and after their procedure are welcome to contact Dr. Gerald Bock to discuss the process. Patients will learn about what they can do before the procedure for optimum results, what they may experience during their procedure, and then discuss after-care instructions to produce optimum healing. All of this can be covered during the initial consultation appointment with our staff.

Dr. Gerald Bock is proud to offer minimally invasive procedures for turning back the hands of time and addressing excessive skin laxity in his state-of-the-art practice. He encourages patients to contact the California Skin and Laser Center of Stockton to book a consultation appointment to learn about MACS lifts and other cosmetic treatments readily available in his practice. He wants to help men and women feel better about the way they look in a way that is affordable, effective, safe, and as conservative as possible.
