The “life style lift” isn’t a specific operative technique for facial rejuvenation. Instead it’s a brand name which is associated with a national marketing campaign. Surgeons who agree to participate, agree to give a significant portion of their fee to the parent company. Unfortunately, this sounds a lot like a finder’s fee and most plastic surgeons aren’t interested in this type of arrangement.
The treatment of facial aging should be individualized based on the patient’s aesthetic goals, anatomic findings and social situation. No two patients are exactly alike and because of this appropriate treatment depends on the patients specific anatomic needs.
When choosing a facelift technique, the analysis of the patient’s anatomy and how it’s effected by the aging process is critical. Careful analysis will determine the type of procedure that will optimize your result.
Although, the type of procedure chosen is important, the selection of a plastic surgeon is even more important. It’s important that you consult a board certified plastic surgeon with experience performing facial rejuvenation surgery. Make sure you review pre and post –operative pictures and have an opportunity to get comfortable. This surgeon should be able to formulate a treatment plan that’s specific for your anatomic findings and meets your aesthetic goals.
