Individuals with loose and sagging skin in the mid to lower face, may be candidates for a revolutionary treatment known as SwiftLift. This is a surgical procedure that is considered less aggressive than a traditional facelift. It uses a minimal access incision in the front of the ear to pull and tighten the skin, securing it with sutures that are hidden from site. The subtle results are most evident in the jowls and marionette (drool) lines. This procedure is popular among middle-aged adults who wish to improve their facial appearance without having to undergo a full facelift.
"Professional, courteous, and respectful. Best surgical experience. The outcome so much more than I even dreamed possible. Went back for another procedure this week because I was so pleased with the procedure in July. This doctor has my total faith and I back him 100%. Linda K.

I love this place and look forward to other procedures done at the gallery!"- S.M. / Google / Dec 07, 2014
"My experience at The Gallery was amazing! I had a consultation with Dr. Jonov and he was able to provide all of the information that I needed in a way that I could understand. He took all the time in the world with me that I needed to feel comfortable. They have a cool touch screen where you photos pop up and he uses it to draw on the image to show you exactly what he will do in the surgery. He was very helpful and caring. The staff was great from the minute I walked in too. I highly recommend The Gallery."- K.C. / Google / Nov 15, 2013
"Happy With Results!! Recently had a Swiftlift , the results were amazing and very natural. I like most people was nervous about surgery (to say the least) . Dr. Jonov and his staff did a great job making me feel comfortable and confident . They all spent a great deal of time with me answering all of my questions .I am 95% percent healed and am still receiving consistent follow up care . If you are in the market for cosmetic surgery I strongly recommend The Gallery."- B.A. / Yelp / Mar 31, 2015

The surgical process for a SwiftLift is relatively simple. The surgeon makes a small incision in the area of the temple hair, just above and in front of the ear, continuing the incision around the ear lobe and then circling the ear returning to the point of origin in the scalp. The skin is then raised outward and repositioned, then the underlying muscles and connective tissue are tightened. Some fat and any excessive skin is also removed. The incision and sutures are positioned so that it will fall in the natural crease of the skin and is therefore camouflaged.
What To Expect@headingTag>
The recovery time required for SwiftLift is significantly shorter than that of a traditional facelift because the surgical time is shorter (approximately 2 hours) and the overall technique is less invasive. This procedure results in less swelling, less bruising, and therefore, a faster recovery. Most patients will be able to make a complete recovery within 7-14 days. The results will be evident as soon as the bruising and swelling subsides. The SwiftLift surgery is considered an outpatient procedure and is performed under general anesthesia.
The cost of having the Swiftlift procedure ranges between $8,000 and $8,500; however, the price can be influenced by the extent of the lift and several other factors, which will need to be assessed during the initial consultation.

The best candidates for SwiftLift surgery are individuals with loose lower face and neck skin who have good bone structure and who have, and will continue, to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle.
How Long do the Results Last?@headingTag>
The results following a SwiftLift can be long lasting. While patients will continue to age, this surgery produces subtle results that are evident long after the surgery. Patients who continue to take care of their skin with quality skincare products, rejuvenation treatments and in some cases, facial injections, can continue to improve the appearance of their face for years.
How Many Treatments?@headingTag>
SwiftLift is a single procedure, but patients that are interested in more extensive, longer-lasting results can combine SwiftLift with other anti-aging treatments. These treatments can be discussed in detail during a scheduled consultation.
