Don't consider going with him or anyone for that matter. They are all butchers and I am living proof. I had a lsl almost two years ago and since then I've been miserable. I've got stiffness, tightness, neck/shoulder pain, the stitches are popped out and hurt and I can't wear earrings. I've visited neurologists, neurosurgeons, pain clinics, orthopaedics and a primary care physician and all I've gotten is medication after medication. I've had MRI's and neck x-rays and still nothing. Although my time is rapidly coming by to where I will miss the deadline for a medical malpractice lawsuit, I feel that someday there will be 'breaking news' because more customers will come forward after filing a complaint with their Attorney General. It has to happen and I will be there to come forward and talk to them about my experience. They took over $6,000 from my wallet, they did not take 10 years off my face. I looked better before this so called miraculous surgery. I too constantly watched 'Debbie Boone' commercials and should have realized that Debbie Boone has so much money and if she had it done, it certainly wasn't with Lifestyle Lift. It's false advertising and unfortunately I fell for it. Had I done my homework and did some research as I normally do, this would not have happened. They have you come in through the main entrance for the consultation and for the surgery, but once they are done with you, it's the back entrance, you're treated like a homeless person thereafter. Although they did return some of my phone calls and emails because I am a very persistent person, the letters to Dr. Kent's office were not followed up and I was not given any compensation. While in surgery, I heard every detail of the doctor's conversation with his assistant, so you know that I was not under as I should have been. This has been the dumbest mistake I've ever made in my life and for those considering it, think twice, think three times, just think. DON'T DO IT!!! You will regret it and there's no turning back. Once they've got your money, tag you're it. The sweet talking is over and 'WHO'S NEXT???? Come on down sweetie, let's see what we can do for you. HA HA! For those of you thinking about having it, I feel sorry for you. Don't say that we didn't warn you. You will regret it!

I had an appointment with Dr. Kagan last month for a LSL. I as so excited and never doubted his qualifications after seeing his impressive credentials. 3 days before the surgery I looked his name up on the internet to see if he was related to the Dr. Kagan that was a one term Congressman from Wisconsin. I was shocked with what I read about him. I called his office and I was told that "He was an excellent Doctor and all that stuff must have been put there by his competitors, because they were jealous." I didn't buy it. I cry when I see those damn LSL commercials on TV, but I guess it could be worse.

I too was sooo looking forward to having a LSL with Dr. Kagan. I looked him up on the internet 3 days before the procedure just to see if he was related to the Dr. Kagan that was a one term congressman in Wisconsin. After looking at his impressive credentials in the office I really did not have any concerns about his qualifications, until I looked at his record on the internet. The office tried to tell me "that it was all made up by his competitors, and just wasn't true." I didn't buy it, there was just too much there. I cry every time I see one of those damn LSL commercials on TV now, but I feel I made the right decision.

Oh no!!!! I'm so sorry to hear that. I went in for aqualipo on my abs and back. Jury is still out. I keep hearing mixed reviews about him. Again, I'm so sorry you had a bad experience. Thank you for sharing!

Dr Kagan did mine- terrible results, don't look any different & no follow up care by Dr Kagan as he was "too busy" to follow up with his patients - that's exactly what the office manager told me!!!She also told me I didn't get the results I wanted because maybe Dr Kage was "was having a bad day". A "medical tech" does all the follow up appts! Save up another couple of years and go to a board certified ACCREDITED clinic where you will get the proper care a surgical patient deserves. You get what you pay for, I learned the hard way. The only thing that looks different on me is now I have scars on my face and a divet under my chin. They told me that there is "no guarantee" of the results but I told them there SHOULD be a guarantee that you won't look WORSE after the surgery!

Dr. Kagan did a LSL on me 09-28-11. I can't believe the fantastic results six days post procedure!!! His credentials are impressive, he's in his 50's, told me he does 10 LSL a week, and has a thriving private practice. Believe me...I checked him out before doing this procedure.
