The “QT Lift™” (Mini Facelift) recently featured on FOX 5 News, as the best low down time alternative to the traditional facelift because only local anesthesia and minimal downtime is needed.
This new low downtime facelift, the QT Lift™, was developed by Dr. Louis DeJoseph at Premier Image Cosmetic & Laser Surgery for people not quite ready for a full facelift or those who just can’t afford much time away from their busy schedules, but desire a fresh, rejuvenated appearance. Doctor DeJoseph is double board certified by the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and by the American Academy of Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery and combined they have over 35 years of experience in facial plastic surgery. They have performed numerous facelift procedures in their Atlanta office. The “QT Lift™” offers all the benefits of a full facelift with little down time and at about half the cost of the traditional full facelift. The QT Lift™ rejuvenates the lower third of the face including the jowls and neck. Best candidates for “QT Lift™” are usually adults between 40 and 55, with early signs of aging, those who just do not have time away from their busy schedules, and those who just require a touch up.
The “QT Lift™” is unique to all mini facelift procedures, as it incorporates the same technique as the traditional full facelift. Unlike the “Featherlift” where a barbed thread is used to hold the skin in place and the “Lifestyle lift”, where a permanent suture is left in place to hold the tissues, the “QT Lift™” procedure actually lifts repositions and sutures into place the actual muscle layer or “SMAS” (superficial musculo-aponeurotic system) as is done in a traditional full facelift. It is this repositioning of the muscle layer or “SMAS” that gives the “QT Lift™” its longevity and reputation of being the best alternative to the traditional full facelift. The “QT Lift™” addresses the lower face and the neck using minimal incisions. The incision is hidden in the hairline, just above the ear and continues down, camouflaged in the creases in front of the ear or just inside the ear itself , curving around the earlobe, continuing in the crease behind the ear. In general, the “QT Lift™” has the same technique and longevity as the traditional full facelift, but addresses a smaller area of concern. For individuals with a heavy neck or excessive sagging of the face, neck and jowls the traditional full facelift may be necessary for optimal results. Commonly, the traditional full facelift incorporates some liposuction of the neck and under the chin as well as a platysmaplasty or necklift.
The “QT Lift™” can be performed under local anesthesia and oral medications. Because smaller and fewer incisions are made, bruising and swelling are greatly reduced. Patients are able to return to work or social functions in as little as three to five days. The QT Lift™ is performed in our state-of-the-art, out-patient surgery center. The surgery center is operated by Northside Hospital and only doctors of anesthesia and fully trained and accredited staff members are chosen to provide our patients with the highest standards of safety in a comfortable, home-like environment with luxurious accommodations and privacy.
