From what I know most experts would say no. Lifestyle is a quick skin and muscle tightening . There are techniques that correct so much more and are so much longer lasting. Fat grafting added to facelift has made people look miraculously younger by replacing the descended and lost fat of the face. This is the newest technology and I feel if fat isnt replaced when you get a facelift the result will be substandard.

A Lifestyle Lift is a trademark, not a type of technology

A Lifestyle Lift is a lower third facelift that employs a SMAS plication or imbrication technique the anchor the muscle. This is a very traditional approach. There are a number of suture suspension techniques that are derivatives of SMAS anchoring procedures. These are not, however, what I would refer to as technology. Some surgeons will incorporate laser assisted lipocontouring of the neck (Smart Lipo) as a supplement with the intention of providing addtional tightening of the skin although this is a point of controversy among many surgeons.

It is never a good idea to decide on a facial cosmetic procedure based on how quick it can be done. I would look for a qualified, experienced surgeon who can provide you with an excellent experience and long term results, regardless of how long it takes.
