Treatment Information

QuickLift facelift surgery is performed at one of The Skin Center Medical Spa's outpatient surgical facilities. Performed under local anesthesia or IV sedation, the QuickLift is performed in just a couple of hours, when performed alone. Completely customizable to each client, many people choose to combine the QuickLift with other types of facial rejuvenation procedures for an even more youthful and well-rested result.

Benefits of QuickLift Facelift Surgery:

  • Outpatient Procedure
  • Local Anesthesia or Twilight Sedation
  • Minimal Downtime*
  • Natural-looking Results
  • Immediate Results with Lasting Improvement

*When performed alone

Developed by Pittsburgh native, Dominic Brandy, MD, board-certified cosmetic surgeon and founding medical director of The Skin Center Medical Spa, the QuickLift procedure begins with a small incision just inside the hairline, beginning at the temple and continuing downward along the tragus of the ear and finishing around the earlobe to the nape hair.

The underlying connective tissue and facial muscles are gently lifted upward and suspended using a purse-string suture technique, which immediately lifts the face, enhances the appearance of the jaw line and upper neck and ensures the facelift results are long-lasting.

Then, the excess skin is carefully removed and the incision is meticulously closed under magnification using a suturing technique designed to reduce tension and minimize any visible facelift scars.

This QuickLift procedure may be performed with local anesthesia or twilight sedation, making it very comfortable for the patient and resulting in minimal bleeding and less bruising and swelling.

QuickLift Facelift Recovery

Prescription pain medication is provided to help manage the pain following the facelift surgery; however, many individuals say that an over-the-counter pain reliever is all that is needed. In addition to some mild discomfort, some people may experience temporary bruising, which can be camouflaged with makeup three days following the surgery. To minimize swelling, patients are encouraged to sleep with their head elevated for the first week and to apply cold compresses the first 48 hours.

Healing time from the QuickLift facelift varies from person to person and depends on whether other facial rejuvenation procedures were performed during the surgery. Healing time can last from three to five days up to two weeks or longer and will be discussed in detail during your surgical consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do the results of the QuickLift facelift last?
The results of the QuickLift facelift are long-lasting; however, after the surgery, the normal aging process will resume. Lifestyle choices, bone structure, skin type, exposure to sun and heredity all play a role in determining how long-lasting the results will be. Most people find that they continue to look more relaxed and youthful after the surgery no matter how many years have passed.
Who are the best candidates for a QuickLift Facelift?
Ideally, the best candidates are healthy men and women between 40 and 65+ years old with mild-to-moderate lower facial / neck laxity (looseness). These individuals usually lead busy lives, which demands more immediate results and minimal downtime. Because the QuickLift facelift is completely customizable to the aging of each, up to a triple-concentric purse string suture can be used to lift and tone sagging skin along the jaw line. Additionally, other facial procedures may be added for enhanced rejuvenation effects.
What other facial rejuvenation treatments can be performed with the QuickLift?
The QuickLift facelift is tailored to the needs of each individual, therefore additional facial rejuvenation surgeries may be recommended to further enhance the result. For many of our clients, the QuickLift may be performed in combination with one or more of the following treatments: • Brow Lift • Eyelid Surgery • SmartLipo™ Facial Liposuction • Chemical Eye Peel • Full-face Chemical Peels
Are there risks associated with Cosmetic Surgery procedures?
Men and women of all ages choose cosmetic surgery for a number of reasons and the process of deciding to have elective cosmetic plastic surgery is highly individualized and very personal. This decision can offer lasting improvement not only to an individual's physical appearance, but also to his or her self-confidence and self-esteem. However, choosing to have any type of elective surgery, including cosmetic surgery is not without risk and potential complications.
