How Long Will a QuickLift Last?
There are many variations of facelift available today, including QuickLift. This facelift technique is quickly gaining popularity because it is minimally invasive and requires less downtime than traditional facelift. But do the results last as long? In this blog post, Portland plastic surgeon Dr. Ronald DeMars discusses what patients can expect after their QuickLift procedure. Dr. DeMars is trained and experienced in delivering beautiful results with this procedure.
QuickLift is designed to rejuvenate the middle and lower face areas as well as the upper neck area. During the procedure, Dr. DeMars will lift and tighten the underlying connective tissue and facial muscles. He will also remove any excess, loose skin for a tauter appearance. QuickLift is usually performed under light general anesthesia and takes approximately two hours to complete. In most cases, there is much less downtime after QuickLift than with traditional facelift. Some QuickLift patients are able to return to work several days after their procedure.
How Long Does a QuickLift Last?
As with facelift, results from QuickLift can last for many years (often up to 10 years). However, this varies from patient to patient depending on several factors, including each patient’s skin type, maintenance and aftercare.
How to Prolong Your QuickLift Results
To prolong your youthful results from QuickLift, Dr. DeMars recommends the following:
- Don’t smoke
- Use sunscreen
- Moisturize regularly
- Refresh with injectables (Dr. DeMars can recommend an injectable product and schedule that best maintains your results)
While aftercare and a healthy lifestyle are certainly important in maintaining your QuickLift results, the most important factor in achieving great results is choosing the right plastic surgeon to perform your procedure. As you research potential surgeons, be sure to choose a board certified plastic surgeon who is experienced and highly trained in performing QuickLift specifically. Dr. DeMars is a highly experienced and skilled surgeon who specializes in facial rejuvenation procedures, including QuickLift. He understands that each patent has unique needs and goals and will work with you to design a plan that best achieves your desired outcome.
