QuickLift: What is it and is it Right For You?

Posted on March 8, 2013 by: Dr. Ronald DeMars

Maybe you’ve heard about the QuickLift from friends or from browsing online; but what is it? To start, it’s one style of many types of facelifts. It is a true facelift but is slightly less invasive and requires less downtime than a traditional one.

The purpose of the QuickLift is to rejuvenate the lower half of the face for a more youthful appearance. The procedure tightens and lifts the cheek and jowl area. Here are some ways to tell if QuickLift might be a good option for you:

  • If you have loose, lax skin, especially around the cheeks.
  • If you have large smile lines around the mouth.
  • If the skin around under or around your neck is looser than you would like.
  • If you are interested in a more youthful appearance in the face from a less drastic procedure, or are a younger patient with early signs of aging.
  • If you have minimal time for recovery.

It is important to note that the QuickLift does not fix problems with the upper or lower eyelids and forehead areas. If you are a good candidate for the QuickLift but would also like to improve these other areas, you may need a separate surgery to get the results you are looking for. About half of the patients that visit Dr. DeMars for QuickLift also opt for an additional procedure for this purpose.
