Lifestyle Lift: You should ask the surgeon performing this procedure how long he expects it to last.

Ask questions: As with any procedure, it is important to know exactly what will happen and what the risks and benefits are. If you get a bad feeling, trust your instinct. There are no easy or quick fixes for complicated problems.

Skin tuck: It is a minimal facelift that will give some improvement. If this is all you need that' s fine but if you are a candidate for a classical facelift which addresses the underlying muscles as well, then you will not get the result you anticipate with just a minimal skin tuck.

Yes: I am sure this works as much as any other short scar facelift. However there is a degree of uncertainty as the same surgeon will not always be available.

Mixed emotions: While i understand the desire to obtain a cosmetic procedure at an affordable cost, I am troubled by the high pressure sales approach and commoditization of the procedure. A facelift is not a car where the product is the same at different dealerships and problems are referred back to the original manufacturer. This is a highly individualized procedure.

Lifestyle Lift: Lifestyle lift is a marketing term for a facelift procedure. The procedure is taught by the company to different types of doctors, not all of whom are board certified plastic surgeons. My best advice is not to ask for a certain procedure with a 'catchy name'', but rather to tell your surgeon what it is that you want to change about your face.
