At my practice, I offer both the QuickLift™ and the traditional face lift for my patients. While both can help you look younger and more refreshed without looking “done,” there are some very big differences between the two procedures. Here’s a closer look at each option to help you decide what’s best for meeting your goals.
Quick Results with a QuickLift™
The QuickLift™, as the name implies, is a facial rejuvenation procedures that offers faster results and a shorter recovery time compared to traditional facelift surgery. Sometimes referred to as short-scar facelift (or S-lift), the QuickLift™ tightens the SMAS layer of the facial structure for a smoother, younger-looking appearance through the lower face and neck.
Traditional Facelift Surgery
In the early days of facelift surgery, the procedure originally only addressed the skin of the face, not the muscles. As surgical techniques became more advanced, plastic surgeons started targeting the SMAS layer to tighten loose muscles below the skin. While this more aggressive approach definitely delivers results, patients typically notice a much longer recovery period, along with more bruising and swelling compared to a QuickLift™.
Which Is Right for You?
So which option is going to give you the look you want? It really comes down to what you and your surgeon decide. It’s important to keep in mind that surgical skill is a big component in the success of your procedure. Although the QuickLift™ and a traditional facelift can both deliver beautiful results, only a board certified plastic surgeon who regularly performs the procedure you want is going to give you the look you deserve.
