What is the Changes Rapid Lift?

In the past, patients may have been required to undergo an expensive, time-intensive procedure if they wanted to minimize the signs of aging along the face and neck. Conversely, the changes rapid Lift serves as a viable alternative to a conventional facelift, and perhaps it’s easy to understand why.

Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa offers the unique Changes Rapid Lift to meet the modern demands of the discriminating patient who needs a rapid recovery. This facelift procedure was developed by Dr. Gilbert Lee and Dr. Michael Rossi specifically for patients with mild to moderate aging in the face.

As a favorite alternative to a traditional facelift, the Changes Rapid Lift costs less and has a faster recovery time than the traditional facelift with equal results. This is possible because of a minimal number of incisions and the procedure being performed under local anesthesia in the office, eliminating expensive operating room and anesthesiologist fees.

​​​What does the Changes Rapid Lift involve?

Getting a traditional facelift or neck lift surgery can be stressful, particularly for those who are working with a plastic surgeon for the first time. Fortunately, Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa helps eliminate the guesswork associated with plastic surgery and offers the Changes Rapid Lift, a reliable option for those are searching for an alternative to a conventional facelift or neck lift surgery.

The Changes Rapid Lift specifically treats loose skin and wrinkles in the lower half of the face and neck and tightens the jawline and neck profile, all of which are areas where aging first occurs. These wrinkles are caused by skin and muscle stretching and loss of fat underneath the skin as you age. To correct this, your surgeon will re-suspend and support the facial and neck fat and muscles and tissues back to their original position, then remove excess skin to tighten and remove wrinkles and jowls.

Your surgeon will tighten the neck and jaw and remove the loose skin that naturally occurs over time. Jowls will disappear, and a youthful neckline is restored. Some patients may benefit from the addition of a corset platysmaplasty to further improve the appearance of the neck. The Rapid Lift restores fullness to the cheeks as well. The result – a young and vivacious face is rediscovered, as this procedure takes years off of your appearance at a fraction of the cost and recovery time of a traditional facelift or neck lift surgery.

What Should I Expect During the Recovery Period?

It may take several months to fully recover from a traditional necklift or facelift. On the other hand, our Changes Rapid Lift is designed to help you get the results you want quickly. Thus, this procedure usually requires a shorter recovery period than typical necklift or facelift procedures.

After a Changes Rapid Lift is performed, you should be up and about in a day or two, but you should plan on taking it easy for the first week after surgery. Some bruising may persist for two or three weeks, but during your follow-up visits, your surgeon will monitor your progress.

After about two weeks, you’ll look and feel much better. Most patients are back at work about 10 days to two weeks after surgery. Makeup can be applied after approximately 10 days.

Why Should I Choose the Recovery Period?

Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do to stop aging. The Changes Rapid Lift, however, can make it easier for you to reduce the signs of aging on your face and neck immediately.
