As we age, it is only natural for our facial skin to become lax and for wrinkles to form. However, if these signs of aging are causing you to look older than you feel, it may be time to consider a facelift. The QuickLift Facelift, created by Dr. Brueck, is a great, minimally-invasive option for rejuvenating your face.
What is the QuickLift Facelift?
The QuickLift is a minimally-invasive facelift procedure that reduces signs of aging in the lower region of the face. It focuses on tightening the jowls, lifting and defining the cheeks, defining the jawline, and smoothing the neckline for a more youthful appearance. The jowl and cheek tissue is anchored to the bone so it holds up for a longer period of time than if the tissue was anchored to other soft tissue.
Who Can Benefit from the QuickLift?
If you are looking to achieve a more youthful and refreshed look and are not yet ready to undergo a full facelift, the QuickLift may be a good match for you. The best candidates will be healthy nonsmokers.
What is the Procedure Like?
During the QuickLift procedure, a small “S” shaped incisions is created along the sideburn, around the earlobe and up towards the hairline. Then tissues are gently lifted and tightened using a purse-string suture technique. Any excess skin is then removed, and sutures are placed.
As far as recovery time goes, the QuickLift requires a relatively short amount of downtime. Most individuals can return to work within a couple of days. Any discomfort that you may experience can be controlled with pain medication, and makeup can cover up any residual bruising after about three days.
