Is the Widely Advertised "Life Style Lift" Performed for Real Plastic Surgeons? I've Heard Some Horror Stories. Is It Safe?

No More Lifestyle Lift, but Many Good Alternatives

The Quick answer is that the Lifestyle Lift company has declared bankruptcy and out of business - i.e. It is not available anymore:

Lifestyle Lift a trademarked brand name and also is a chain of facial cosmetic clinics with headquarters in Troy, Michigan.
As advertised, the LIFESTYLE LIFT is a minimally invasive, short scar lower face lift performed under local anesthesia and yes it involves cutting and sutures. The reason no one will tell you is probably because as far as I can tell there is no one specific technique, or even a published description of why this differs from other short scar techniques. It is performed by Facial Plastic Surgeons, Head and Neck Surgeons, and Plastic Surgeons.

The LiteLift® or other short scar modified facelifts performed by a board certified plastic surgeon however is a great alternative and has been around for a similar time period, and only performed by board certified plastic surgeons. It is a short scar modified facelift offering in office local anesthesia and oral sedation as well as other methods of anesthesia.See the below link for more information

The best way to answer your question is to go to their website and research their surgeons. Safety is largely dependent on the protocols that the surgeon and the facility have in place to screen their patients to ensure that they are appropriate candidates for surgery.
