First of all, it is important to understand that Lifestyle Lift docotrs are NOT cosmetic surgeons. All of our docotrs are general or facial plastic surgeons, and as such must undergo specialization and training. Cosmetic surgeons, on the other hand, can receive certification in a matter of hours and are not qualified to perform the Lifestyle Lift facial firming procedure. The procedure is designed to be as comfortable as possible, and with as little interruption to your life as possible. Frighteningly enough, doctors in most states are able to legally perform specialized procedures without actually being specialists in that area. That means that some physicians and surgeons with no formal training in plastic surgery are in the operating rooms around the country, performing plastic surgery. The Lifestyle Lift facial firming procedure has earned its reputation as one of the safest, most reliable forms of cosmetic enhancement.
Part of the reason for this is the requirement that only specialists who are board certified (or in the process of being board certified) are able to be trained as Lifestyle Lift doctors. Each of our qualified doctors must be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the American Board of Facial Plastic Surgery, and/or the American Board of Otolaryngology Facial Plastic Surgery. Doctors not certified (or in the process of) by at least one of these three boards are not eligible to perform the Lifestyle Lift. The Lifestyle Lift organization has developed this policy to ensure that all doctors who perform the procedure practice the high standards established by each of the certifying boards. It also helps ensure that only the world’s most qualified specialists are performing the Lifestyle Lift facial firming procedure. We encourage all patients to review the biographies and certifications of their Lifestyle Lift doctor before undergoing the facial firming procedure. We also encourage patients to ask questions during their free Lifestyle Lift consultation or at any time before or after the procedure. Through open communication and high standards that far exceed most others in the industry, the Lifestyle Lift facial firming procedure will continue to stand high above other facial cosmetic enhancement procedures in terms of safety, specialization, and patient experience.
