Lifestyle Lift FAQ
How long does a lift surgery take?
It depends on the type of lift you’re having done, but in general, most lift surgeries take between 2 – 4 hours.
How long does a facelift last?
Because our bodies are constantly aging and fighting the effects of gravity, facelifts or any lifting procedure isn’t permanent. As you age, your skin will start to droop or sag, but in general, you can expect your facelift to last about 10 years.
Can I combine lift surgeries?
Yes, you can combine lift procedures. Many people will combine various lifts, especially if they have lost a significant amount of weight and want to remove excess loose skin. During your consultation with Dr. Gallegos, he can assess your situation and aesthetic goals to create a plan to best achieve the look you want.
Does a lift procedure get rid of unwanted fat?
It depends on the type of procedure you’re having done, but most lift surgeries will only address sagging skin.
