This is a good question. There are many versions of a facelift now. A lifestyle facelift is only intended to last maybe 5 years. When a patient has more serious drooping of the face and cheeks and jowls, a different type of lift is usually needed. I perform a mini lift under local anesthesia which is the same as a lifestyle lift. The main purpose of surgery is to address the problems of the face. After examining the patient, the problems should be addressed surgically. If the face needs minimal work, a lifestyle type of lift is usually all that is needed. When there are more serious aging features, then a different type of surgery is usually needed. Presently, surgery is much easier these days and less invasive. It can be performed under IV sedation or even local anesthesia. Good Luck. Your face is your diamond, polish it well and you will shine brilliantly.
How long will the lifestyle lift last, 3 years, 5 years, 7 years?

The Lasting Effects of a Facelift
On average the surgical #results last between 4 and 7 years. However, people vary so much from one another, an exact time is difficult to provide. If you wish, you may repeat the procedure at that time. There is always an improvement compared to not having the procedure as the #aging process continues to progress throughout the future. Patients, with very loose skin will occasionally experience sagging earlier and it may be seen as soon as one year later. Such may require a secondary procedure to tighten the loose skin.
This is a great question. There are many factors that determine how long your Lifestyle Lift will last. They are genetics, stress levels, diet, sun exposure, skincare, skin type, etc. Typically if you are taking good care of yourself and have a good skincare regiment it should be 7-10 years.
