Not sure what Lifestyle Lift is? It’s one of the many alternatives to a typical facelift. The Lifestyle Lift offers the ability to take a significant number of years off of your face, basically reversing the aging process of your face. The company is said to have performed hundreds of thousands of Lifestyle Lifts since being created.
What Exactly Is The Lifestyle Lift And What Does It Do?
The Lifestyle Lift supposedly does a great job at reducing wrinkles, laugh lines and does so with a much shorter incision versus a typical facelift. Having a Lifestyle Lift requires less recovery time too. If you’re interested in how the procedure goes, it’s rather simple. The procedure starts with the incision in front of the patients ears and around the lower ears. The procedure works to lift the patient’s jawline and cheeks. The excess fat is removed in the skin as well. The next step is to pull the muscles tighter and remove as well as life any excess skin. The typical patient will likely take up to a week to recover from this procedure.
With regards to sedatives, the Lifestyle Lift procedure requires lidocaine and some oral sedatives before the Lift begins. The results of the procedure are pretty comparable to having a standard facelift. The good news is that the side effects and recovery time isn’t as long.
If you’re looking for third party reviews, you can find plenty of them on other sites. There are plenty of reviews on Realself and other sites if you want to further investigate the service. For the most part, based on my research, Lifestyle Lift patients seem to be generally happy about the results that they have after getting the surgery.
Dr. David Kent is the creator of the Lifestyle Lift. He is a cosmetic surgeon that created the service and company in 2001. Those that get the Lift seem to claim that the results last for a long period of time.
From an operational perspective, there are currently more than 30 Lifestyle Lift centers that are located throughout the United States. The locations are managed by 60+ physicians in major cities spanning the country.
Interested in getting a Lifestyle Lift? Then you need to know the cost. The expense of a Lifestyle Lift can vary from patient to patient. The variable seems to be both the aging and the location. The cost is typically an average of about $4,000 but can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $10,000. It’s also highly recommended that you see a minimum of two physicians for a consultation before making a decision to get the Lifestyle Lift.
Something important to know about Lifestyle Lift. As of March 2015, according to an article that was published in the Wall Street Journal, the company has shut down most of its operations. The company was considering bankruptcy even. If you were planning on having any procedures done by this company, there is a good chance that you’re going to have to rethink you strategy. It seems as though the company owed so much money to J.P. Morgan Chase Bank, that it had no choice but to cease operations.
After knowing what I do about the financial status of the company, I would highly suggest avoiding the company and it’s services in its entirety. It’s never a good idea to get a procedure done by a company that doesn’t have enough money to operate.
