What is a QuickLift™ Procedure?
This facelift procedure is a "mini surgery" that tightens the skin of the lower face and neck, giving the patient a fresher and youthful look without the discomfort or recovery time of a facial plastic surgery.
Unlike other facelift procedures with similar names and other mini facelifts that tighten only the skin, QuickLift™ San Francisco permanently suspends the underlying structures of the lower face, offering men and women the great benefit of a younger appearance for years to come. Although the QuickLift™ procedure creates significant aesthetic improvement for most patients, it’s important to keep in mind that the normal aging process still resumes after any facial procedure. Lifestyle choices, bone structure, skin type, sun exposure and heredity all play a part in determining how long the desired result will last.
Best Candidate for the QuickLift™ Surgery
The QuickLift™ is designed for busy men and women from 40 years of age and up who want to stay ahead of the aging process but don’t have the time or inclination to consider a traditional Facelift. Most individuals in this age group lose elasticity in their mid to lower face and develop varying degrees of looseness along the jaw line and beneath the chin. They will want to consult with the QuickLift™ experts at Plastic Surgery Specialists in the Marin County surgery center to ensure that they are in good health and know what to expect from this Mini Facelift.
QuickLift™ Cosmetic Procedure
This specific Facelift procedure addresses sagging skin (and its underlying muscle) on the mid to lower face. While it is conservative when compared to a traditional Facelift, the QuickLift™ still has the capability to take five to ten years off one’s appearance because the areas it adjusts are usually the first to show the signs of aging. Tiny incisions are made along the sideburn area and under and behind the earlobe, ensuring that scarring (which fades eventually) won’t be noticed. A special suturing technique further minimizes the potential for scarring. Yet this minimal scoring is enough to tighten the jowls, smooth out the skin at the neck, reduce nasolabial folds, and tighten the skin of the cheeks. Excess skin is removed during the QuickLift™ procedure. Other procedures, such as the insertion of Cheek and Chin Implants, can be performed at the same time.
Post QuickLift™ Cosmetic Procedure
The Mini Facelift is an outpatient procedure that takes only about an hour to perform. Usually local anesthesia is sufficient for this surgery, and while pain medication is made available, many patients are satisfied to use over-the-counter painkillers afterward. Minor bruising may occur. Patients love the QuickLift™ because they can return to work within a few days, sporting a natural, rested and more youthful appearance. Many patients have it on a Friday so that they can be ready to return to work on Monday. For this reason the QuickLift™ or Mini Facelift is sometimes called the “Weekend Lift.”

- Can QuickLift™ be done under local anesthesia?
Yes and most patients can be back to work or social activities in 7-10 days.
- Does QuickLift™ correct neck or brow aging?
For some, correction of lax cheeks and jowls is all that is necessary, but it can be customized to correct neck and brow and include ancillary procedures like laser or fat injection. Still recovery and costs can be a fraction of traditional face lifts. In some cases, it may be able to replace such procedures as brow lift in San Francisco or traditional facelifts.
