Lifestyle Lift


Lifestyle Lift

Not ready for a facelift, but finding that injectables just won’t cut it? The Lifestyle Lift is a viable option for people looking for a happy medium. Using a trademarked technique, the Lifestyle Lift is a plastic surgery procedure that tightens the lower two-thirds of the face. It’s ideal for patients with saggy jowls, smile lines, nasolabial folds, and other signs of aging. Similar to the mini facelift, the Lifestyle Lift takes only about an hour for a surgeon to perform—compared to the traditional facelift’s 3-4 hour average. Plus, most surgeons performing the Lifestyle Lift do so only under local anesthesia and light sedation, minimizing both risks and costs.

The Lifestyle Lift is categorized as a short-flap SMAS (Superficial Musculo-Aponeurotic System), meaning that underlying tissue is tightened during the procedure in addition to the outermost skin. The result is a tighter, more youthful-looking appearance that mimics natural movement. The Lifestyle Lift also uses an incision that is hidden around the ear and hairline for flawless healing capability.
