QT Lift Boise Idaho
The “QT Lift” is unique to all mini facelift procedures, as it incorporates the same technique as the traditional full facelift. Unlike the “Featherlift” where a barbed thread is used to hold the skin in place and the “Lifestyle lift”, where a permanent suture is left in place to hold the tissues, the “QT Lift™” procedure actually lifts repositions and sutures into place the actual muscle layer or “SMAS” (superficial musculo-aponeurotic system) as is done in a traditional full facelift. It is this repositioning of the muscle layer or “SMAS” that gives the “QT Lift™” its longevity and reputation of being the best alternative to the traditional full facelift. Atlanta QT Mini-FaceliftAtlanta QT Mini-FaceliftThe “QT Lift™” addresses the lower face and the neck using minimal incisions. The incision is hidden in the hairline, just above the ear and continues down, camouflaged in the creases in front of the ear or just inside the ear itself , curving around the earlobe, continuing in the crease behind the ear. In general, the “QT Lift™” has the same technique and longevity as the traditional full facelift, but addresses a smaller area of concern. For individuals with a heavy neck or excessive sagging of the face, neck and jowls the traditional full facelift may be necessary for optimal results. Commonly, the traditional full facelift incorporates some liposuction of the neck and under the chin as well as a platysmaplasty or necklift.
