I am about to have the lifestyle lift? (photo)

I have wrinkles on my chin area. I do not have a sagging neck. I was originally going to have fat transfer, but heard that many of the fat cells do not take especially in radiated skin. I am concerned about the scares by my ears. Should I consider the fat transfer first before I get the lifstyle lift?

Update: I have recieved my answer, but I cannot have laser treatments to my radiated skin. For the wrinkles on my chin, I am to have a mini face lift with fat transfer. My concern is the incision healing due to the radiation.

Lifestyle lift vs. Ultherapy in Los Angeles

An excellent option to a Lifestyle lift is Ultherapy, which is a non surgical option that can tighten the muscle layer of the lower face and neck areas without downtime.

STOP!!! You have irradiated facial skin??? You need to be evaluated before any surgery/ lasers/ peels/ fat grafts to your face. Irradiated skin reacts so differently. Plus you need a very experience surgeon not a LSL surgeon who is a "hired" gun so to speak. PLEASE be careful.. Here on REALSELF the approval rating for the LSL is 57%, very poor!!!!

Wrinkles are not well treated with face lifting

While I am not at all sure about who does and what a Life Style Lift is, wrinkles of the face are not well treated or much improved with a face lift. Fractionated Erbium laser treatments are a good way to improve wrinkles. Fat grafting also will help fill out the atrophied tissue and improve wrinkles. You should meet with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and discuss what procedures would be best for you.
