Natural Facelift

What Is UpLyft?

UpLyft is our exclusive, revolutionary "mini" facelift procedure designed to create the look you’ve always wanted without the painful and cumbersome recovery process inflicted by a traditional plastic surgery facelift.

We don’t just tighten your skin. By taking care to sculpt the muscle structure itself with minimally invasive techniques for a fast recovery facelift, we’ll help you reveal your fresh and beautiful inner self. This is different from other facelift procedures. That’s why UpLyft won’t just change your look; it can change your life.

The UpLyft Difference

We’ve perfected the procedure to maximize your transformation and minimize recovery time. Our safe and refined facelift method means that you won’t need to undergo general anesthesia and suffer the after-effects—and with our flawless technique you’ll experience nominal bruising as well.

Other “Mini” Facelifts

  • Remove tissue and pull skin back tightly to achieve desired look
  • Use longer incisions that can lead to more scarring, bruising and a longer recovery time
  • Do not include neck tightening
  • Do not elevate the skin to reduce puffiness
  • May require general anesthesia


  • Rather than just pulling the skin, we sculpt your muscle structure to restore your face’s youthful look and ensure that your facial framework is strong for years to come
  • Smaller, less conspicuous incisions minimize bruising and retains your natural beauty
  • Includes neck tightening
  • Elevates the skin to eliminate puffiness
  • Uses local anesthesia so that you’re completely comfortable but not subject to the risks of general anesthesia

How does UpLyft measure up to a full facelift?

The UpLyft procedure is different from a full, traditional facelift for several important reasons.

UpLyft patients enjoy:

  • A quicker recovery time
  • A faster but perfected technique
  • Natural-looking results
  • Minimal bruising
  • A more cost-effective procedure
  • Less risk
  • A no general anesthesia option
*The results shown in the before and after photos will vary based on a variety of factors.

How Do I Know if UpLyft is Right for Me?

If you feel that your appearance does not reflect who you are inside, or you’re disappointed or frustrated with an aspect of your appearance, come talk to us. We provide free phone consultations to let you know if UpLyft can help you look your best.

Am I the Right Candidate for UpLyft?

Generally, we treat patients with mild to moderate skin aging who are seeking a more youthful appearance. We’ll perform a consultation, and many tell us “I don’t like my neck” or “I’m tired of having loose jowls.” We can help! Our typical patient is 50+, but we are happy to work with anyone who would like to achieve a younger look.

If you decide you’re not yet ready for a facelift, we offer many other options to refresh and reboot your look.

The UpLyft Facelift Experience: What to Expect

From the moment you walk through our doors until you’re ready to put your best face forward in the world, we love to pamper you. Our relaxing and inviting space has been designed to offer a spa-like experience, with a soothing environment and an unhurried vibe.

Here’s how your transformation unfolds:

  1. Face to Face Consultation with Dr. Fischer: She will see where “gravity is working” by examining your jowls, checking to see if there’s an abundance of skin under your chin and neck area, and identifying any hollowing and bowing.
  2. Schedule Surgery: Pull out your calendar and we’ll get you on ours.
  3. Pre-Op Appointment:
    • A staff member will review the entire surgical process with you and provide consent forms.
    • We’ll give you prescriptions for a soft sedative to bring back on the day of procedure. We also provide prescriptions to alleviate any pain and nausea to help you sleep.
    • We do not require history, physical or lab work from your primary care physician*.
  4. Day of Procedure:
    • Our staff takes pictures and measures your vitals; we administer a soft sedative.
    • You’ll rest in a comfortable and private room to let the medication settle in.
    • A nurse will walk you to the operating room.
    • After about a 2 ½ hour surgery you’ll receive a “head dressing” to reduce neck swelling, decrease bruising and shape a beautiful contour the next day.
    • Immediately following the procedure, you’ll be ready to head home with a caregiver!
  5. Day after Procedure:
    • You’ll return to our office the next morning.
    • We’ll remove your head dressing.
    • A nurse will apply the “jaw bra” to wear for one week—all day, everyday.
  6. Facelift Recovery Time:
    • Night 1: You’ll sleep sitting up with your head dressing.
    • Night 2-3: Pain and discomfort lessens.
    • Week 1: You should be back to normal, and many of our patients are already back out to dinner! Avoid cardio activity before 4 weeks.

“She’s (Dr. Fischer) just a relaxing person. She’s fun. She’s funky. I like the way she dresses. She wasn’t pushy, and she didn’t recommend things that I didn’t need. She was very honest. That’s what I liked about her. And I know she’s good with her hands. I know some of the procedures she does and not many people can do that.”

Ina P.

She’s (Dr. Fischer) very nice – she has a wonderful attitude when you meet her as a doctor. That’s one of the nicest things. Having been to a number of doctors, I can’t say that. Some are like, ‘Okay, what are you doing here? What do you want?’ But she really has a very personable attitude and makes you feel very at ease.

Sandra G.

I did some research on procedures. I looked into CO2 lasers and some from other doctors, but she (Dr. Fischer) is really talented. I really do believe she’s talented. I don’t think there was a chance I would go anywhere else. I think I looked to see if any other doctor said they were doing something different, but she was doing all the cutting-edge procedures, with the least downtime. She would also do it without putting me to sleep, which is critical for me because I really hate anesthesia.
