There is an option for patients who desire a facelift with a quick recovery time

Quick lift facelift procedures are an option for some patients who want a facelift without the long recovery time. The commonly referred to weekend lift is a procedure that offers most of the same benefits of a facelift, with a fast, 2-4 day recovery time. Charlotte, NC surgeon Dr. Sean Freeman has developed a technique for this type of facelift surgery that is designed to give patients the best results as fast as possible.

SignatureLift has a quick recovery time

Charlotte surgeon Dr. Sean Freeman has developed a weekend lift technique called SignatureLift. This procedure can be performed under sedation rather than under anesthesia. This helps shorten the recovery time. This method is also cheaper than the more standard facelifts, which makes it an attractive option for many patients.

The SignatureLift is not an option for all patients

Though all patients would like a quick lift that has a short recovery and saves money, it is not the best option for all patients. The surgeon will be able to assess the patient and situation and see if it is a good option for them.

SignatureLift is a good option for younger patients who are under age 60. If a potential facelift patient is younger and does not need as much work done, this quick lift would be a good option for them. In fact, it may be beneficial as it can sometimes help combat signs of aging in later years.

Patients can typically return to work and activities in a matter of days

Patients who have a quick lift, such as the SignatureLift, can return to activities much sooner than those who undergo traditional facelifts. While other facelifts can take weeks to months to recover from, most SignatureLift patients can return to work in two to four days.

With a SignatureLift the incisions are made along the hairline. This placement makes hiding stitches following surgery easy as it is just a matter of covering them with hair. Though patients can return to work in a few days after surgery, stitches will last for about a week. During that time patients should be careful when combing their hair as the area may be tender following surgery.
