THE PROCEDURE

Anesthesia

Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. The choices include local anesthesia, intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. We will recommend the best choice for you based on your personality, your desires, and the complexity of your procedure.

For more information about our our QuickLift™ procedure, please contact us online or call us at We look forward to helping you look your best.

HOW WE DO IT: TUTORIAL

The procedure typically takes about 90 minutes, depending on the individual face and certain surgical variables. It is a surgery, and not something you can do on your lunch hour. There are four basic steps to a QuickLift,™ which are the same steps with other types of facelifts. However, steps 2 and 3 are less complex and are the secret to the QuickLift.™

Step 1 – Incisions

A QuickLift™ incision begins in the hairline at the temples, continues in front of the ear and around the back of the ear and ends in the hair of the scalp. The incision is like a seam in clothing. It is impossible to remove the extra skin without an incision. The more skin that needs to be removed, the longer the length of the incision. Incisions normally heal extremely well and are nearly invisible. The QuickLift™ incisions tend to be in front of the hairline at the temporal area, because the lift is more vertical, thus, the hairline can be preserved.

Added step: If the neck is a problem or concern, sometimes a small incision is placed under the chin to remove fat and tighten loose muscle bands.

Step 2 – Undermining, or loosening the skin

Next, the surgeon gently loosens the skin from the underlying muscle (SMAS). Much less loosening is required for a QuickLift™ than a traditional facelift. Less loosening means less time, fewer complications, less bruising and swelling, and quicker healing.

Added step: Fat may be sculpted away from the neck and jowls, and fat might be transferred to cheeks or tear troughs.

Step 3 – Tightening the Muscle (SMAS)

The muscle layer is tightened with up to three purse string sutures, creating a quick but natural tightening to the entire muscle layer of the face. This suturing technique is what makes the QuickLift™ possible.

Step 4 – Closing

This is the final tailoring step, where the skin is re-draped over the uplifted contours, excess skin is trimmed away, and the incisions are meticulously closed with removable sutures. We use removable sutures to improve the healing process and minimize scarring. No drains are needed.
