In brief: A marketing term

This is a trademarked term used to convey a short scar facelift performed within an outpatient setting with minimal anesthetic (local) by a variety of different physicians/surgeons.
Tothebeat of my ability, i cannot find a respected book, scientific article or peer reviewed journal discussing the technique.

In brief: Trademarked name

Lifestyle lift is the name of a procedure that is essentially the same as a mini facelift.
If you are thinking of a facelift i would consult a board certified plastic surgeon to help guide you with your decision.

In brief: LSL really?

The lsl is not new but it is very questionable as to happy results.
Mini fl done by boarded surgeons in the correct candidate can achieve wonderful results. Just see more than the lsl center, see boarded pss in their own practices.

In brief: In Office Mini Lift

Be careful with "mini" lifts.
.. They usually have "mini" results. I like to provide my patients with a "mini" experience that results in "maxi" results. No matter what, seek the advice of a board certified plastic or facial plastic surgeon before undergoing any facial aesthetic surgery. Good luck!

In brief: Suture based lift

The lifestyle lift is a heavily marketed suture based facelift.
The quality of the lift can be variable, as there is not a great deal of standardization. Suture based lifts have been shown to be effective and long lasting, but depend on a skilled practitioner. For best results, seek a board certified facial plastic surgeon for consultation and their recommendations. Best wishes.

In brief: Controversial

The "lifestyle lift" is advertised as a minimally invasive face lift performed under local anesthesia.
The longevity of the procedure is in question and most surgeons prefer traditional facelifting. The company has been involved in controversial marketing practices and settled a suit by the ny ag (cuomo). The company's claims of quicker recovery are also in question.

In brief: Simple really

The lifestyle lift is not actually a type of facelift at all.
It really is a way to do a facelift safely and quickly under strictly local anesthesia. Most surgeons who perform lifestyle lifts use very standard techniques, they are simply done at a certain center that offers the "brand" of lifting.

In brief: Trademark

There are a lot of surgical procedures that have specific names so that they are easily recognized by the public.
Doctors regularly attend educational conferences where new techniques and technologies are shared. There are very few "secret" procedures.

In brief: A shortcut procedure

Performed by under-trained, non asps practitioners who may not even be a surgeon or even an md that is designed primarily to increase cash flow per unit time.
The unusual good result depends wholly on the presence of long permanent sutures which never hold up for more than a year. Cost is 70-115% of that for an actual face lift.

In brief: Short flap

In brief: Faster recovery

It is a facelift that can be performed under local anesthesia and has much faster recovery(3-4 days).
Also risks associated with facelift is markedly reduced. It gives a very natural look.

No "branded" procedure induces "faster healing," but less surgery has less bruising and swelling. The error is in believing (and LSL promoting) that you can get as good results from less surgery! I also feel that "natural" is a code word for "Not that much improvement" or perhaps "Not very long-lasting."

In brief: New "lifestyle lift"

Hello, I really don't know.
The lifestyle lift has been around for awhile. I'm not an advocate of this procedure. I can't explain why they have a "new" version. I have been performing my laser vertical lift with many long term, happy patients.
