Do I Need an Express Lift?

Our facial plastic surgery experts designed the Express Lift with a particular patient in mind. Maybe you’ve tried BOTOX and dermal fillers, or have even had a laser skin resurfacing treatment, and now you’re seeking something more…but you still don’t want surgery. Or perhaps you had a facelift 10 or 15 years ago and just want to refresh your look without having a second procedure.

Our signature Express Lift is the right fit for a patient with mild to moderate signs of aging on the face and neck, who is interested in a way to address several common signs of aging all at once, with a single, minimally invasive treatment. If you are seeking to rejuvenate your eyes and tighten up loose or sagging skin on the jowls, chin, and neck, while melting away unwanted fat and smoothing lines and wrinkles, then you may be an ideal candidate for our Express Lift.

The Primary Benefits of the Express Lift

The Express Lift is a game-changer that fills the gap between nonsurgical facial rejuvenation and facial plastic surgery. One of the key benefits of our Express Lift is that it is a minimally invasive procedure with a short recovery period and very little downtime. In addition, much like a surgical facelift, the Express Lift can be customized for each patient to address several common signs of aging all at once, giving you a way to:

  • Tighten loose, saggy skin
  • Correct jowls and the presence of a double chin
  • Reduce unwanted fat
  • Smooth, tighten, and lift skin on the eyelids, around the eyes, temples, and brows
  • Add definition to the chin and jawline contour
  • Stimulate collagen production for improved skin tone and texture
  • Tighten and resurface the skin around the eyes
  • Improve smile lines, nasolabial folds, and lines on the neck

Your Consultation Experience

Our signature Express Lift begins with a thorough consultation so our team can clearly understand your goals. Next, Dr. Clevens or Dr. Barbee will work in partnership with you to develop a treatment plan, combining multiple modalities to achieve the result you want.

Once we’ve finalized the details of your treatment plan, your surgeon will talk you through the experience, so you can understand exactly what to expect both during and after your procedure.

Finally, we’ll explore your pricing and financing options, before setting up your treatment date, as well as any pre- and post-procedural appointments that may be necessary. Our support team will remain available to you at every step of the process, ensuring your comfort and addressing any concerns that may arise.

How Does the Express Lift Work?

Our signature Express Lift utilizes a combination of modern advancements in aesthetic medicine, powered by radio-frequency technology, to tighten skin, remove fat, and build collagen. Your treatment plan will be customized to your specific goals by one of our facial plastic surgery specialists. The Express Lift takes about 45 to 90 minutes to perform under local anesthesia, and your recovery will only last a few days.

To ensure your comfort, our providers may offer you a numbing cream and/or local anesthesia. During the Express Lift, your doctor will utilize a radiofrequency-powered system that delivers heat via two small probes: one above the skin, and one beneath. This heat exchange, known as radio-frequency assisted lipolysis, results in dramatic skin tightening and fat reduction, all at once. 

Finally, your doctor may recommend a resurfacing treatment using RF microneedling or laser skin resurfacing to improve the quality and texture of your skin for a polished look.


Recovery After Your Express Lift

One of the reasons patients choose our Express Lift is the short recovery period that follows the procedure. Most patients can return to work and their usual activities in just a few days. Some bruising or swelling in the treatment area is normal and may be visible for about a week. You’ll see noticeable results immediately after your Express Lift, and these results will continue to improve over the next three to six months.

Hear From One of Our Satisfied Patients

"The staff was wonderful in preparing me for the procedure and treated me warmly throughout the process.  During the procedure, I experienced no discomfort and was relaxed the entire time. The doctor even took the time to check in verbally with me to make sure I was comfortable and doing okay while performing the procedure. I experienced no discomfort or pain, but did have some swelling after for about 1 to 2 weeks, which they had prepared me for, and was able to go back to work in just a few days.  Overall, the healing process has been very easy and I am very pleased with my result thus far and continue to see improvements every day!"
