What does the Lifestyle Lift do and how long has this procedure been performed?

When people reach their 40s, gravity, heredity, sun exposure and the stresses of daily life begin to affect their faces. The jawline grows slack and jowls begin to form. Fatty deposits and loose skin begin to appear in the lower face and neck. Creases form between the nose and mouth.

These changes combine to make people look older than they feel. The Lifestyle Lift can improve these visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles and tightening and smoothing skin on the face and neck. The procedure restores the jawline and neck, quickly removes wrinkles and sagging skin, and dramatically creates a more youthful appearance. Many patients see and feel the improvement before they leave the office!

The Lifestyle Lift can do great things to enhance your appearance and your self-confidence. The procedure can be performed alone or with eyelid tightening procedures (blepharoplasty). These procedures help reduce the signs of aging around the eyes. Together, they can be potent tools to help restore your appearance. Plus, facial/neck procedures are the only ones performed at Lifestyle Lift centers.

In general, facelift procedures have been performed safely for more than 50 years. The Lifestyle Lift was introduced in 2001 as a breakthrough alternative to the traditional, more invasive types of facelifts.

Recently, there has been a trend in all of medicine to move away from extensive, long and involved procedures (such as a traditional facelift) toward simpler, quicker and safer procedures (such as the Lifestyle Lift). By concentrating exclusively on the Lifestyle Lift, our doctors have become the country’s experts with this procedure. They have performed more than 100,000 procedures at Lifestyle Lift centers around the country!
