QuickLift (Facelift)

The QuickLift® is a revolutionary facelift procedure that tightens skin in the lower portion of the face and neck, in a minimally invasive way. The QuickLift® delivers similar results to a traditional facelift with a quicker recovery and lower likelihood of complications.

Our board-certified face head and neck surgeons have combined experience of over 35 years performing facelifts. The QuickLift® is a revolutionary procedure delivering results of a traditional facelift but with shorter recovery periods unencumbered by drains and large bandages. The QuickLift® also presents fewer complications than a traditional facelift. The QuickLift® is designed for men and women between the ages of 40 and 65+ who want to look as good as they feel.

Unlike most procedures with similar names and most other mini facelifts that tighten only the skin, the Quicklift® permanently suspends the underlying structures of the lower face (SMAS), offering men and women a more youthful, natural and long lasting appearance for years to come. Although the Quicklift® can produce significant aesthetic improvement for most people, it is important to remember that after any facial procedure, the normal aging process continues. Lifestyle choices, bone structure, skin type, sun exposure and heredity will all play a role in the how the desired result will last.

The Quicklift® is performed in our accredited surgical facility on an outpatient basis. The procedure typically takes one or two hours, depending on the patient and degree of correction desired. With the safe and effective use of oral sedation and local anesthesia the Quicklift® is performed with vital sign monitoring. Patients in good general health will not require the use of general anesthesia; however that is an option if a patient chooses. Each patient has a dedicated registered nurse whose main role is to monitor the patient and ensure a comfortable experience. Because we use oral medications, someone to drive you and stay with you 24 hours post-operatively is required.

Post-operatively we request that you sleep in a reclined, but not flat position with a facial garment, called a jaw bra, in place. Our physicians will see you back at the office the next day to remove bandaging. Immediately after your check-up visit you may shower and begin the recovery protocol given to you by our staff.

We find our patient satisfaction level with the QuickLift® to be very high for many reasons; we are proud to say one of the main reasons is the access to our staff and physicians for after hours care. Only at River Region Facial Plastics do you leave with the physician’s personal cell number should concerns arise.

We find the Quicklift® to be reasonably priced and obtainable by many budgets. We offer Care Credit as a financing option, but first and foremost – visit us for a complimentary consultation so that we may customize a plan that meets your goals and desires.
