How long does the lifestyle face lift last, in terms of months or years.?

How long does the lifestyle face lift last, in terms of months or years.?

Surgery Brand ID: In my opinion, this is not a standardized operation. It is essentially a place where surgeons are hired to perform a short scar facelift on patients provided by lifestyle lift marketing efforts. While some of these surgeons may possess excellent skills, it may not be consistent which is not unlike a "supercuts" or "great clips" approach applied to surgery. I understand they are trying to improve. ...Read more

Recovery: Recovery after face lift surgery varies on the specific type of face lift you had, and your body's natural healing ability. Mini lifts (short scar or minimal access) have a faster recovery than traditional face lifts or full face lifts. Generally, most swelling and bruising after facial cosmetic surgery (mini face lift) resolve within a couple weeks. Plan for at least 2 weeks of recovery, especially when combined with upper eyelid surgery, lower blepharoplasty, and brow lift surgery. You may have residual slight bruising or swelling for longer, however, may still be able to go into public without drawing attention. To maximize your cosmetic results, follow the care instructions of your plastic surgeon. Best of luck. Dr. Chaboki. ...Read more

I would like to know, how does procedure to make the dimples on cheek, how much for the cost, and can I do after have face lift 3 years ago? . Thanks

A suture: Creating dimples requires a small incision inside of the cheek, creating a small defect in the cheek muscle and suturing the skin to the inside of the cheek. At first, there is a dimple even at rest and as the suture dissolves, it creates a scar which pulls the skin back with the smile. Thus creating a dimple. Th ethinner the cheek, the better the result. You could do it after a facelift. ...Read more
