I cannot speak about Lifestyle Lift but I do perform Quicklifts. In my practice it successfully replaced traditional facelifts because of shorter recovery, comparable durability and effectiveness with improvement of face, neck, jowls, cheeks. I would not put Quicklift in the same category as other minilifts. It is not skin only based and therefore more durable. It is not based on skin tension and therefore does not create un-natural pull on the face. It takes about 1-2 hours and recovery is about 5-10 days with proper post - operative recommendations. I perform well over 100 every year with universally very high level of patient satisfaction. Boris Volshteyn MD MS Sierra Plastic Surgery LLC Reno NV

The lifestyle lift is a surgical facelift with a dissection that is less extensive than the typical full lower facelift. A quicklift is akin to the mini-facelift and involves less extensive dissection usually only under the cheek are, so it can't address the problem areas of the neck. They are not the same and as you might guess, they can't produce the same results.

I couldn't disagree more. A quicklift can be easily modified to address the neck, and in my practice, a platysmaplasty (chin/neck dissection is ALWAYS done) which not only improves the neck contour, but in most cases, exceeds the result that can be obtained with the gold standard extended SMAS technique even with a platysmaplasty. The result is more reliable and longer lasting in my experience.

I think they are very similar procedures. There are many names for these similar types of facelifts. They are all modified facelifts. Mini, weekend, lifestyle, quicklift, etc.
