Do you know someone that has had plastic surgery? How about a someone that has had a facelift, breast augmentation or a lifestyle lift? Odds are increasing all the time that you will as the popularity for plastic surgery continues to rise. Have you ever seen the show on FX called Nip / Tuck? How about the Extreme Makeover show? It's constantly in the entertainment news and on TV shows. Plastic surgery is all the rage and giving your face a little nip here and slight tuck there is usually at the top of the list. Facelifts were at one time the top requests for plastic surgeons all over the country. At least for those people in the financial demographic that could afford it. They are one of the more expensive procedures if you have never priced them before.
Thankfully for the other half of the people that are not sufficient enough to be in the higher income bracket. The popularity of the lifestyle face lift and the plastic surgeons performing them is on the rise very quickly and the main reasons for that are two fold.
The first reason for the popularity of the lifestyle facelift procedure is the cost. The average cost for the lifestyle lift is starting around $ 3500 with a high range around $ 5000. Still a lot of money in this economy but when compared to the average cost of a full on face lift you are looking at about half the price. Half off a plastic surgery with the same results has gotten lifestyle lifts a lot of attention and new customers for the plastic surgeons that can do the lifestyle lift procedure.
The second reason the lifestyle lifts popularity is so high is the actual lifestyle facelift procedure itself. Unlike a face lift in which case you have a hospital stay with a full surgical team and weeks of recovery time. A lifestyle face lift procedure can be done as an office visit with an average recovery time of about a week depending on the patient.
Now those are only two reasons that were listed here for getting a lifestyle lift instead of a full face lift. Honestly though what other reason could possibly need? It's cheaper, less invasive and the healing time for a lifestyle lift is a fraction of that of a facelift.
