There are no wires involved with Lifestyle Lift. This is a procedure known as Contour Thread Lift or the Diamond Wire (and other names). One year in I am totally satisfied with the eye lift and "jowl" lift I got from Lifestyle Lift. Down time is greater: it took about 5 months for all of the swelling to go down, the bruising took one month to go away. They can do the procedure in less than an hour on your lunch break - but don't plan on a public appearance for a good 2 months.
