What is the LifeStyle Lift? The Lifestyle Lift is an alternative to a traditional facelift that promises to take years of visible aging off your face. More than 200,000 Lifestyle Lifts have been performed so far. Why is it so popular? The Lifestyle Lift can effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles, especially laugh lines with a shorter incision then a facelift. The treatment is less invasive then a facelift and usually requires less downtime. The procedure is performed by making small incisions in front of the ears and extend around the lower ears. It works by lifting the cheeks, jawline, jowls, and mid-face, and removing excess fat in the skin. Muscles are pulled tight and excess skin is lifted and removed. Patients still need a few days and up to a week to recover. Lifestyle Lift uses lidocaine and oral sedatives before it beings the treatment. Sounds too good to be true? While Lifestyle Lift results are comparable to a facelift, the side effects and recovery period is only slightly shorter.
There are over 1000+ Lifestyle Lift reviews on sites like Realself and ConsumerAffairs. Patients seem satisfied with the results they experience after surgery. However, many reviews suggest that the Lifestyle Lift does not fully explain the way the treatments works, the side effects and the recovery period.
The Lifestyle Lift was created by Dr. David Kent, a cosmetic surgeon in Michigan. Since the procedure was created in 2001, it is difficult to estimate how long the results will last. However, results so far suggest patients can expect long range results.

LifeStyleLift Centers are in Houston, Atlanta, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Fort Myers, Ontario, Las Vegas, Long Island, Little Memphis, Manhattan, Minneapolis, Nashville, Phoenix, Seattle, Santiago, Tampa, Troy, Washington, West Palm Beach, Portland, Reno, Salt Lake City and San Francisco.
