The Quick Recovery Facelift was designed by Dr. Amiya Prasad for the person with busy and modern lifestyle. After some time, Dr. Prasad found that patients who sought a face lift had hesitance because they didn’t want to appear unnatural or show obvious signs of surgery. Patients also did not want the long period of recovery and did not want an ineffective “short cut” procedure. Dr. Prasad’s Quick Recovery Facelift was developed to provide his patients with minimal risk, maximum gain, and quick recovery.
What is the Quick Recovery Facelift?
Performed under local anesthesia and light sedation, the Quick Recovery Facelift is a 2 to 3 hour procedure. An incision is made typically in crease between ear and face and slightly around the earlobe through which the surgery is performed. The patient will be able to return home about 1 hour after the procedure with only a small bandage and antibiotic ointment. Recovery time is about 1 week.
Why Choose The Quick Recovery Facelift?
For patients who seek a better alternative to other facelifting procedures available, the Quick Recovery Facelift has many advantages compared to a traditional face lift. The Quick Recovery Facelift is performed under local anesthesia, which is safer than general anesthesia used for most face lift surgeries. The Quick Recovery Facelift produces a shorter scar as the incision is a lot smaller and does not go to the temple. Because of the way the incision is made, hair loss is minimal (if any) and the sideburn is preserved. With the Quick Recovery Facelift, the patient goes home on the same day of surgery. A traditional facelift usually involves an overnight hospital stay with a private duty nurse. A traditional facelift can result in a slanted or pulled look. The Quick Recovery Facelift restores the natural relationships of the skin, tissue and muscles of the face, resulting in a natural, youthful appearance that will last long.
