Lifestyle Lift Alternative for Patients

Lifestyle Lift Alternative for Patients in Tampa, Clearwater, Lutz, Spring Hill, Palm Harbor, and Beyond

If you’re thinking about having a lifestyle lift to address the loose or sagging skin around your cheeks and jaw line, you may want to reconsider. While lifestyle lifts are minimally invasive, these types of procedures rarely produce results that meet a patient’s expectations, and even when a patient is pleased, the results seldom last.

The main reason that a lifestyle lift isn’t as invasive as a more traditional facelift procedure is that the surgery doesn’t address the supporting facial muscles beneath the skin. Rather, lifestyle lifts only involve the removal of excess facial skin, while the underlying muscles continue to loosen as the natural aging process progresses. Eventually, the weight of the sagging muscles causes the skin on the face to sag as well, which can reverse the results of the initial lifestyle lift procedure.

Patients in Tampa, Clearwater, Wesley Chapel, Odessa, or any other Florida city who are interested in a more beneficial alternative to a lifestyle lift can visit cosmetic surgeon Dr. John Roach at the Bayside Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Dr. Roach can help you achieve the youthful looking appearance you want by performing a mini face lift, which, like a lifestyle lift,  is still less invasive than a traditional facelift, but will provide longer lasting results. Depending on your unique needs and appearance goals, your procedure can be adjusted to address your neck and jowls, your cheeks and nose area, or your lower eyelids.

A mini face lift requires Dr. Roach to make tiny incisions behind your ears or along your hairline, through which he will remove a narrow section of skin. The remaining facial skin will be gently tightened to help smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, and the underlying tissue and muscle will be lifted and repositioned. Once excess skin has been removed, Dr. Roach will suture the incisions. You can expect to recover in about one week.  

To learn more about a mini face lift as an alternative to a lifestyle lift, contact the Bayside Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. We’ll be happy to schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Roach whether you live in Tampa, New Port Richey, Carrollwood, Palm Harbor, or any other nearby community.
