Lifestyle Lift - Facial Cosmetic Surgery
What Is Lifestyle Lift?
Lifestyle Lift is a facelift procedure that is different in several different ways than a traditional facelift. The aim is to leave the client with a refreshed and natural appearance similar to how they looked some years previously by removing or reducing the usual signs of aging that everyone experiences. It is specifically designed to re-define the chin and jaw line by reducing sagging jowls, excess fat around the chin, loose neck skin and wrinkles. For maximum effect there is an optional procedure for the eye area that can remove bags beneath the eyes and excess folds of skin from the upper eyelid.
What The Procedure Entails
The Lifestyle Lift procedure is performed in-office under a local rather than a general anaesthetic and can take as little as an hour to complete. An incision is made along the temple and down around the front and back of each ear. Liposuction may be used if excess fat needs to be removed and the skin is pulled into place and any excess skin is trimmed. Two circular sutures are used to pull together and tighten stretched muscles. Similar is done for the neck to reduce the loose skin affect that is so aging.
The Benefits of Having A Lifestyle Lift Rather Than A Traditional Facelift.
In contrast to a typical facelift procedure a Lifestyle lift is very effective in obtaining a youthful appearance much more quickly with the results often being seen on the same day. It’s performed in the office, in a relaxed atmosphere under local anaesthetic, making the procedure faster, the recovery time quicker and the whole procedure less expensive than a traditional facelift. The Lifestyle Lift is not intended to alter the appearance of the individual but remove the obvious signs of aging recovering the youthful appearance enjoyed years previously.
The Importance Of Making The Most Of The Consultation Session
As with cosmetic procedures the consultation period is off critical importance. Firstly, it's an opportunity for the client to explain what it is they feel they need improved and what they will be expecting from the treatment. They should ask to see before and after pictures of previous work and make sure that, if they see work that they particularly like, they can be treated by the same practitioner responsible for it. The practitioner will also advise what can be reasonably accomplished and answer any questions or concerns about the procedure and aftercare. It's also a good idea to speak to others that have undergone the same treatment, if possible.
