Is the QLift safe?
Yes. When performed by one of our doctors with the necessary experience, the procedure is very safe. The risks and complications of the QLift are uncommon and usually correctable. Because the QLift is generally performed under local anesthesia, there are none of the risks associated with general anesthesia.
What is the QLift recovery like?
There is a risk of swelling and bruising. Pain and discomfort is minimal and most female patients can apply makeup the next day and resume quiet activities. There are some special protective measures and instructions that patients must follow for a week or two to avoid trauma that might compromise the achieved lift effect.
When can I return to work and my usual routine?
Depending upon your type of work and your tolerance for some minor bruising and swelling, you may be able to return to work within a few days following the procedure. Facial animations, mouth movements and rubbing or pressure on the face should be avoided during the first few weeks following the QLift. Most patients look good in makeup within a few days and good without makeup after approximately one week
