Feel Rejuvenated and Refreshed

The Weekend Lift was developed in 2003 to help patients look and feel rejuvenated and refreshed without experiencing the extreme pain, risk, downtime, and expense of traditional facelifts.

What is
The Weekend Lift?

This is a mini-facelift that is an excellent alternative to a full facelift and gives an overall lift to the neck and lower third of the face. It focuses primarily on trouble spots such as the neck, jowls, mid-face and the lines around the nose and mouth. It is called the Weekend Lift because that is the approximate duration for post-operative recovery.

How does the weekend lift compare to a traditional facelift?

Unlike a full facelift, the Weekend Lift is done using local anesthetic , much like you’d receive during a dental visit rather than general anesthesia. It takes one hour to complete in most cases. The incisions are much smaller, starting at the hairline and going around the ear. There are no drains or big face bandages, no risk of facial nerve injury and minimal to no bruising. The procedure is performed at the clinic under sterile conditions, and patients go home with an antibiotic, although the risk of infection is less than 1 percent. Many people go back to work the next day.
