Lunch Hour Lift
Looking as young as you feel doesn’t always require a long procedure. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jared Nimtz offers the Lunch Hour Lift, a shorter and targeted treatment to keep you looking younger, in Lexington and London, KY. You can now enjoy a fresher, younger-looking face without the downtime of a traditional facelift.
What Is the Lunch Hour Lift?
The Lunch Hour Lift is a shortened version of the facelift and other rejuvenating procedures. While Dr. Nimtz customizes every procedure, most lifts consist of a combination of:
- An abbreviated incision
- Fat grafting or dermal fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane to restore volume and enhance contours
- Skin resurfacing with chemical or laser peels
- Skin tightening procedures
By combining these targeted anti-aging treatments in the same appointment, you enjoy the benefits of full-face rejuvenation with much less recovery time than with a surgical facelift.
What Are the Benefits of a Lunch Hour Lift?
Lunch Hour Lifts address many of the most common signs of aging without needing a longer operation. Your transformation may include:
- Softening crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines
- Lifting and defining sunken cheeks
- Smoothing out deep skin creases or folds
- Filling in hollow temples
- Chin augmentation to reduce the appearance jowls
- Lip augmentation for thinning lips
Dr. Nimtz personalizes each procedure to address the unique concerns you are facing, creating an attractive, natural-looking result.

Should I Get A Traditional Facelift Or A Lunch Hour Lift?
A facelift is a surgical procedure that provides a deeper level of rejuvenation. During the surgery, Dr. Nimtz makes incisions near your ears, lifting and repositioning the underlying muscle and connective tissue in your face. A facelift provides more dramatic and longer-lasting results than a shorter procedure, but it also involves significantly more recovery time and greater cost. A Lunch Hour Lift is an excellent alternative for those who have less severe signs of aging but still want to achieve noticeable rejuvenation.

What Is It Like To Get a Liquid Facelift?
A liquid facelift involves a quick series of injections that typically takes under an hour. After consulting closely with you about your goals, Dr. Nimtz makes sure you are comfortable with a topical anesthetic. He then meticulously injects the fillers and BOTOX to create a noticeable but natural-looking improvement in your appearance.
What Is Recovery Like After a Liquid Facelift?
Recovery time is very minimal after a liquid facelift. You may experience some swelling for a week or so after dermal filler injections. Some redness or mild bruising around your injection sites is normal. Most people return to their usual routines immediately after a Lunch Hour Lift—that’s how it got its name!
How Long Do Liquid Facelift Results Last?
Liquid facelift results are temporary. Most people return for additional maintenance treatments every 6 to 12 months.
