What is an ExpresS-Lift?
The ExpresS-Lift facelift is performed under local anesthesia to eliminate any pain and to reduce post-operative bruising. Because it requires only a short skin incision, which is carefully placed around the hairline and ears, post-operative scarring is also minimized. Most significantly, unlike with a traditional facelift, the Express-Lift incision ends just behind the ear lobe and does not extend into the hairline behind the ear. The longer, traditional incision can result in significant scarring that may be visible if the patient wears their hair “up.”
