A QuickLift, also known as a mini-facelift or weekend facelift, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that offers many of the benefits of a full facelift with minimal recovery time. If you have a busy lifestyle and think you do not have time for a facelift, then this type of facelift may be right for you. A QuickLift can be performed in just a couple of hours! Manhattan cosmetic surgeon Basil Pakeman, MD, FRCS, is pleased to offer QuickLift, the convenient facelift alternative, to his patients throughout New York. Please call us at 212-308-1566 to learn more.
What is a QuickLift?
A QuickLift is a minimally invasive kind of facelift that takes years off your facial appearance, rejuvenates your skin, and may be easier to fit into your schedule than a full facelift. In a QuickLift cosmetic surgery procedure, Dr. Pakeman makes a small, virtually invisible incision along the hairline and ear. By tightening the skin and underlying facial muscles, Dr. Pakeman is able to lift the face, tighten the jawline, and improve the appearance of the neck.
A QuickLift can correct most of the same cosmetic issues as a traditional facelift.
Advantages of QuickLift
QuickLift offers patients the benefits of a facelift with the convenience of an in-office, outpatient procedure that requires only local anesthesia. It can be performed in just an hour or two, and the results take years off the appearance of your face. Some of the other advantages include:
- Minimal incisions
- Well hidden incisions
- Reduced bruising, swelling and discomfort
Patients who choose QuickLift will be pleasantly surprised at how fast recovery can be. You will go home with prescription medication for any pain you may experience, but such discomfort is usually brief. Some patients experience temporary bruising that subsides within two or three days, but most fully recover so quickly that they are able to return to work after just a weekend of healing.
Although a QuickLift is minimally invasive, it is still a surgical procedure. The only way to know if it is right for you is to be evaluated by an experienced cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Pakeman. With Dr. Pakeman, you can discuss your facial goals, your health history, and other factors that may influence your candidacy for this procedure. Dr. Pakeman is committed to making sure you know all of your options for facial rejuvenation.
