The : The lifestyle lift is a revival of a very old facelift procedure--unfortunately. I know of not a single well trained facial plastic surgeon who does this procedure. It is typically considered to be a skin only lift which is a short lived, antiquated intervention for the aging face. We have evolved as a specialty way beyond this type of facelift. More current techniques result in a natrual, lasting result. You can think of this as a minilift-- which only addresses the lower part of the face and not the neck. The droopy eyelids, sagging cheeks and wrinkles would not be helped. Those parts would be handled individually with a blepharoplasty, midface lift, and skin resurfacing. Hope this helps!

Yes: Lifestyle lift is a mini facelift, and will not address your eyes or neck. It will smooth your cheeks and jowls. Other procedures like eyelid lift, brow lift, and neck lift will be needed to address all of your concerns.

Yes: It only pulls the cheeks back a bit. Do not expect the results to be as good as with a normal facelift . It is a quick fix short term solution. Eyelids need different procedure.

Minifacelift: A "lifestyle lift" is basically a lower face lift that treats the lower face. There may be some softening of the nasolabial folds but it will not take care of wrinkles around your mouth or your droopy eyelids and cheeks.
