Not everyone is happy with their appearance, but while you may never look like your favorite celebrity, you may be able to do something about it if you feel this way. The solution to your appearance woes may come in the form of a procedure called a “Quick Facelift.”
What is a Quick Facelift? Below are several facts about this procedure.
Quick Facelift Basics
A Quick Facelift is a type of facelift used to lift sagging skin. It is marketed as a minimally-invasive method of tightening the skin in your lower face and neck.
The procedure takes at least an hour and a half to complete. It is performed under local anesthesia or twilight sedation.
The Quick Facelift is marketed as giving a more natural and youthful appearance than the “pulled back” appearance you could end up with from a more traditional procedure. It is said to require a smaller incision and shorter surgical time, which typically leaves less bruising and swelling and a shorter recovery process.
Most Quick Facelift patients are 40-65 years old. However, you may also be a good candidate if you’ve experienced major weight loss or are predisposed to sagging skin. It has also been successfully performed on patients in their 70s with remarkable results.
According to reviews on realself.com, the average price of a Quick Facelift is around $8,500. Of course, the final cost will likely depend on several factors including your location and the plastic surgeon you choose. Your plastic surgeon should be able to explain any costs you will incur in detail to help you decide whether or not this procedure is affordable for you.
A Quick Facelift won’t eliminate the aging process. However, it is claimed to offer permanent results. Speak with a plastic surgeon for details on the results you can expect and how long those could last.
If you don’t like the face you see in the mirror, a Quick Facelift could be your ticket to an improved appearance. Although most patients are ages 40 to 65, you may even be able to get one outside of this age range depending on your situation. Contact a qualified plastic surgeon to learn more about this procedure and to ensure it is in your best interest.
