How Long Does the Quicklift Last?

I am a 56 year old female. I do not have a sagging neck just deep pores and wrinkles around my mouth.

Thank you for your question. A Quicklift can typically last up to 10 years. However, it can vary from person to person depending on the skin condition. For more information, I recommend getting a in person consultation with a board-certified dermatologist.

The Quicklift, or other similar and slightly less involved modifications of a facelift, give a noticeable amount of improvement that most patients are thrilled with if your surgeon made the proper patient selection for that particular procedure. 

You will continue to age after the procedure. There's no stopping that. Most patients that get a second lift tend to do so about 10 years after their first one because they were very happy with that first result, but they continued to age beyond that point again. 

The enlarged pores you mention are a difficult problem to address, but a chemical peel or laser treatment can be done along with your surgery to help. Be sure to choose a Dermatologic surgeon, oculoplastic surgeon, facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon who is board certified in one of the 'core four' cosmetic specialties.

Quicklift and Lite Lift Longevity

Rejuvenation Procedures like the Quicklift or LiteLift Turns Back the Hands of Time but does not stop the clock. Your surgery will give you permanent improvement but you will still age. In other words if you were an identical twin and only you had the surgery you will always look younger in the future. The hands of time will be turned back but the clock continues to tick. Most of my patients feel that the hands of time are turned back around 10 years or so following these procedures. Note deep pores are not improved by face lift procedures.

Thanks for your question.  A Quicklift can last up to 10 years, as the procedure addresses the sagging SMAS and platysma muscles and the excess facial and neck skin.  If your problems are more large pores and fine wrinkles around the mouth, sounds like you need more skin resurfacing treatments such as laser treatments, chemical peels, and  treatment with retin A

Quick Lift Explanation

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

The quick lift is a name for a modified face lift. It typically addresses the jowl and neck areas.  Multiple factors (weight, degree of laxity, etc) will determine if you are a candidate.  The nice thing about a quick lift is that it can be modified for you.  So, an indepth consultation is needed to determine if the quick lift is right for you.  Perhaps different procedures that address skin texture and wrinkles are better suited for you.  Good luck!  Hannah Vargas, M.D.

Deep pores and wrinkles

It is unlikely any facelift procedure will address this.

You would do better to consider Chemical peeling, laser resurfacing, microneedling and/or retin-A.
