To find out the cost of a Lifestyle Lift, consumers once could call a toll-free number to schedule a free consultation to learn about the procedure, according to Allure. Lifestyle Lifts typically cost an average of $6,420, which is significantly less than the estimated $11,000 cost for a traditional facelift performed by an independent surgeon. However, as of March 2015, the Lifestyle Lift chain of cosmetic surgery centers had ceased operations.
A Lifestyle Lift is a less-invasive facelift that only alters the lower part of the face, neck and jaw, notes KFMB-TV of San Diego. This mini facelift works by tightening the layer of muscle underneath the skin, called the fascia. Scars are small and hidden behind the ear. The surgery doesn't require general anesthetic and pain lasts only a few days.
