Do Lifestyle Lifts help with jowls and aging eyes? What other problems do they help resolve? Are they recommended? Thank you so much!

We do not offer the Lifestyle Lift in our practice. In our experience we have found other surgical and non-surgical procedures offer better and more lasting results.

This procedure is promoted and marketed by a specific company. I cannot comment on the procedure as I do not perform it. However, if you go in for a consultation, I encourage you to speak with the surgeon and be sure that he or she spends all the time you need to have all your questions and concerns answered to your satisfaction. This should include a description of the operation, alternative therapies, expected results, and risks and complications.

Lifestyle lift is a heavily marketed procedure that was begun by an ENT surgeon. It has grown because of mass marketing. It has been my impression that the procedure is done to generate money for the company as much as it is for the recruited surgeons who perform it. The company tries to recruit surgeons to "join up" but most have refused. It has been my experience that those who have joined "needed the extra business" because they were not doing well on there own. I cannot speak specifically about any of the Lifestyle Lift surgeons but in my practice I have seen two unsatisfied patients who had poor results with a bad experience. I have reoperated on one of them to fix the problem. My recommendation is to see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who has a lot of experience in Facial Cosmetic Surgery. Hope this helps.
