The EasyLift® Face Lift

Perfect for Most People

The EasyLift facelift was developed by Dr. Kevin McBride to help his patients obtain the best result with the least surgery and recovery time possible. Dr. McBride modified the best features of established techniques, and combined them to make everything easier for the patient.

It is performed under light general anesthesia and a long lasting local anesthetic in our office surgical suite.

The EasyLift procedure uses an ideal incision line in front of the ear but uses a very short incision behind the ear. The fat and muscle are lifted and tightened, not removed as they are in the more invasive techniques. There is less swelling and bruising, and the cheek fullness is increased to provide a more youthful cheek appearance. The skin is repositioned up and back toward the ear where the excess is removed and meticulous closure is performed.

The EasyLift is simpler than other techniques, but is extremely effective because of the meticulous surgical technique. The "easy" part of the procedure is the simplified recovery and reduced down time experienced by the patient. An EasyLift face lift takes about three hours. You will have some discomfort and a feeling of tightness, but there is usually very little or no pain. You can return to work and your other usual activities within a few days.
