Board-certified Surgeon Hannah Vargas, MD Now Offering the QuickLift Mini Facelift Procedure.

The QuickLift is a great option for those who want to stay ahead of the aging process, but do not want to go the route of a full facelift.

Women and men in Kansas City now have access to the QuickLift®, a revolutionary mini facelift procedure that tightens sagging skin along the jaw line and chin, offering immediate, natural-looking results without the lengthy recovery and costs associated with traditional facelift surgeries.

Board-certified surgeon Hannah Vargas, MD, who serves out of St. Joseph Medical Center, is the only surgeon in the Kansas City area to offer the QuickLift procedure.

Unlike procedures with similar names that tighten only skin, the QuickLift Mini Facelift permanently suspends the underlying structures of the lower face (SMAS), jaw line and neck, offering men and women the benefit of a more youthful appearance for years to come. The QuickLift is performed under local anesthesia or with twilight sedation, and takes one to two hours to complete. Small incisions and shorter surgical time result in less swelling and bruising, and a shorter recovery period, with most individuals able to return to their normal routines within a few days.

“The QuickLift is a minimally invasive procedure that produces outstanding results,” says Dr. Vargas. “This is a great option for those who want to stay ahead of the aging process, but do not want to go the route of a full facelift. Lax skin along and under the chin, jaw line and neck can add years to a person’s appearance and contribute to a tired, worn facial expression. The QuickLift addresses this area, producing an overall firming of the lower facial area and noticeable jaw line definition for a more elegant, youthful appearance.”
