San Diego Plastic Surgery Practice Sees Rise in QuickLift Procedures

Contrary to national trends, Alexander Cosmetic Surgery ( is seeing an increase in the number of facelift procedures performed at the practice. Leading the way has been the QuickLift procedure, a revolutionary procedure that tightens loose skin in the cheeks, jaw line, and neck with fewer incisions than a traditional facelift.

"The popularity of the QuickLift has been considerable," says Dr. John T. Alexander II, a San Diego plastic surgery specialist and the first surgeon in California to perform the QuickLift procedure. "It's been a popular procedure since its introduction, but I believe the technique may have reached a point of critical mass in popularity, with word-of-mouth being the top way our patients first learn about the procedure."

The QuickLift was developed in 2004 in response to client feedback. Hearing that many facelift patients wanted less downtime after their procedure, Dr. Alexander began researching new techniques. He soon discovered the QuickLift , a procedure that had the same impressive results as a facelift, but with fewer complications and a quicker recovery time. The technique was especially effective for patients in their 40s and 50s, and it involved an overall rejuvenation of the face, jaw, neck and cheek areas.

"To this day, clients from all over the state, and beyond, come to us because they hear of this procedure," adds Dr. Alexander. "The growth in popularity of the QuickLift is that much more impressive considering that the number of facelift surgeries nationally has declined over the past decade."

The stark contrast between national numbers and those of Alexander Cosmetic Surgery is likely due to the constant innovation taking place at the practice. Many people considering facial rejuvenation wanted a short recovery time so that they can return to work sooner. They also wanted a procedure that is more cost-effective than a traditional facelift.

"The QuickLift is just one of the advancements we've introduced to improve patient outcomes," notes Dr. Alexander. "Our advanced VASER Liposuction technique, our expertise in human growth hormone via our ENERGENEX clinic, and much more has helped us connect with more patients. We're providing real innovations for people who want to look and feel great about their bodies, and that's why our patients have come to expect great results from us."

Alexander Cosmetic Surgery ( has been San Diego's leader in facial rejuvenation and cosmetic plastic surgery since 1964. Led by father and son duo, Drs. John T. Alexander, M.D., and John T. Alexander II, M.D., F.A.C.S., J.D., the clinic has a history of patient dedication and care, while leading the way with innovative treatments. Alexander Cosmetic Surgery was San Diego's first anti-aging clinic with the use of ENERGENEX and is an exclusive provider of the QuickLift. For more information or to schedule a consultation, visit
