I'm a female 55+ and thinking about getting a face lift. Which procedure do recommend Lifestyle Lift or Sonabela?

SonoBello may not be what you want
rejuvination of aging faces. Unfortunately, Lifestyle lift has closed, but surgeons who performed
thousand of procedures and became very good at performing a wide variety of procedures
are still around.
Although I was located in the Ontario, Ca center and now am in private practice, there were many
former excellent surgeons who were affiliated with the company located in Texas. Dr. Standefer is
one of them and he is in Dallas.
Good luck with your search!

In our practice, a facelift accomplishes tightening loose facial and neck skin, tightening loose facial and neck muscles, listing the jowls, and removing fatty deposits in the neck along with a platysma plasty. Study your prospective surgeon's facelift photo gallery, which should be extensive and reflective of that specific surgeon's work. Do not rely on photos from a large clinic which are performed from a variety of surgeons.
Liftstyle Lift or Lift by Sonobello
There are many types of facelifts. Lifestyle Lift was a national company that specialized in facelifts under local anesthesia. Originally a mini lift, the procedure evolved to be a modified face and neck lift that incorporated many standard facelift techniques. Of course the results were dependent of the skill and experience of the surgeon. Many lifestyle lift surgeons attained a high level of proficiency after performing hundreds of facelifts and other cosmetic enhancement procedures in a given year. Although lifestyle lift is no longer in business, many of those experienced physicians are still practicing. Sonobello is a company that got its start doing body liposuction but has now expanded into the facelift market with a similar concept. Doctors that work in this environment can more quickly master and maintain proficiency through experience on a variety of patients each week. The facelift that is best for you is the one that addresses your specific concerns and is performed by a surgeon that is experienced working on patients with your type of issues. Sometimes health and financial concerns also enter into the equation which is another potential benefit of local anesthesia. You are best to find a surgeon that has some experience and routinely performs these procedures.
Choosing a procedure
I hope this helps.

Lifestyle lift is closed. SonoBello is a company, not a type of lift.
The #Litelift is a modified facelift that can be done under local with quick healing and limited incisions.
Choose your doctor, not a clinic for best results
Lifestyle Lift vs Sonabela
No matter where you go for a facelift, be sure to ask about experience. Experience is the single most important thing to consider when choosing a surgeon. Experience is the best teacher!!!

For Your Information:
Sonobello is liposuction company, focusing mainly on body work, not the face.
Lifestyle Lift, the facial cosmetic company, is no longer in business. The corporation closed in early March 2015 amidst financial difficulties. However, all of its surgeons have gone on into private practice, continuing the service of providing facial rejuvenation under local anesthesia, the safest method of doing a facelift, or any other facial cosmetic procedure.
Seek out a board certified plastic surgeon in your area for a consultation. I wish you all the best.
