In recent years there has been a very strong trend toward less invasive facial rejuvenation. Patients want a cosmetic improvement but do not want to suffer prolonged recovery or a high risk of complication. Because of this, purse-string, suspension-based facelifts have gained great popularity.
However, many surgeons have voiced skepticism over the long-term effectiveness of these procedures. The three primary lifts that have been published in peer-reviewed journals are the S-lift (see figure 1), the MACS lift (see figure 2), and the QuickLift (see figure 3). All three techniques use the concept of suspending sagging facial features with strong, permanent purse-string sutures.
What patients need to know about “quick” from the developer of the QuickLift
By Dr. Dominic A. Brandy
Minimally invasive facelift surgery presents significant potential benefits to patients in terms of time spent in surgery, recovery periods and results. Understanding the benefits and risks of procedures such as the QuickLift can help patients properly assess the suitability of this type of facelift surgery compared to other courses of action.
As the developer of the QuickLift, a popular, less-invasive alternative to more complicated facelift surgery, I have worked with thousands of patients. I have also taught the QuickLift procedure to dozens of doctors. This has given me the opportunity to learn and understand the benefits and the risks of less invasive facelift surgery from the patient and the physician perspective. Having undergone the procedure myself, I have a personal connection to the patient as well as the physician perspective that I believe provides additional insight.
