Lifestyle Lift® - Weigh Your Treatment Options
If you are unhappy with a sagging jawline, drooping skin, and fading contours of the face, cosmetic surgery can restore a youthful, toned appearance. While exploring your options, you may have heard of the Lifestyle Lift®, a form of facelift that promises less downtime, and less bruising and swelling.
Dr. David Passaretti prefers the benefits of traditional facial cosmetic surgeries, like full facelift and neck lift, over Lifestyle Lift®. Our Darien office, serving patients throughout Fairfield County, features a fully accredited, state-licensed operating facility and dedicated, highly trained staff on-site. To receive more information on your treatment options, and an unbiased, educated opinion that can help guide your decision, contact our practice today to schedule a consultation.
Lifestyle Lift: A Closer Look
The heavily marketed Lifestyle Lift® does not, in fact, refer to a specific surgical technique. It is simply a company that refers patients to specific member surgeons, who may perform whichever procedure they prefer. The one thing the procedures all have in common is that they are not performed in fully accredited operating rooms with trained anesthesia providers. While not having a fully licensed operating room and anesthetist does decrease cost, it does not necessarily ensure safety, comfort, or the best results. For this reason, many of the best surgeons in the country, including Dr. Passaretti, still rely on word of mouth for patient referrals, and perform their procedures in fully licensed operating rooms with trained anesthesia providers.
Benefits of Traditional Cosmetic Procedures
Among the advertised advantages of Lifestyle Lift® procedures is reduced operating time. A facelift should be a once in a lifetime procedure that provides long-lasting, natural aesthetics with little risk. When performed correctly, facial plastic surgery takes time, and Dr. Passaretti exercises an unparalleled degree of finesse, precision, and control for soft, beautiful results.
Another listed benefit is faster healing, and a speedier recovery. In reality, traditional facelifts result in very little pain, and only a two week recovery period. Because Dr. Passaretti performs targeted, conservative enhancement, trauma is minimized, leading to less risk of complications and improved healing.
In sum, Dr. Passaretti prefers alternate procedures over Lifestyle Lift® for their safety, and their predictable, long-lasting results.
Informed Patients, Enhanced Results
We strongly believe well informed and educated patients experience less stress and greater satisfaction with the results of their treatment. Dr. Passaretti never pressures patients or steers them in a particular direction, instead, he will work cooperatively with you to develop an individualized treatment plan that will can help you achieve your unique aesthetic goals.
During a consultation, he will begin by discussing your concerns with you. To address common signs of aging in the face, he may recommend:
- Face lift to tighten and tone
- Eyelid surgery to rejuvenate tired eyes
- Full-face laser resurfacing to diminish fine lines
- Sculptra® Aesthetic to restore lost volume
Regardless of the treatment you pursue, Dr. Passaretti's years of experience can provide you with the optimal results you desire.
