The procedure associated with the business Lifestyle Lift must be repeated over time, according to Gina Maniscalco for LookinGood. While there is not a specific protocol linked to the Lifestyle Lift, the majority of these procedures only manipulate the skin and do not produce lasting results.
Since the Lifestyle Lift company used independent doctors without a specific protocol, the procedure individuals experienced when receiving Lifestyle Lifts varied. For some, only the skin was manipulated, instead of the skin, fat and muscles such as with a traditional facelift. This resulted in a procedure that was temporary. Lifestyle Lift faced complaints, lawsuits and bankruptcy and shut down most of its business as of March 2015, explains Joan Kron for Allure magazine.
