Ladies, I wouldn't get anything done at lifestyle lift. They are sales people. They are milling you for money and at the end your results won't last very long. Not only that they are very unprofessional. I rather pay mite and have my work done at a more respectful place.

Dr Mucci also works at Ft Lauderdale I have heard great things about him I got Dr Rodreguez and was very happy I dont think it was very painful more of a stinging sensation ice and pain meds took care of it youwill feel very stiff but not really in pain that stiffness just means you got a good job.
Make sure you take stool softners for about 2 days before surgery and wvery day as long as you are taking pain meds because constipation from pain pills will be more painful than surgery I have had many surgerys and a smart nurse told me that one time and what a difference.
Also take arnica for about 3 days before every hour and for a week after surgery for bruising get it at gnc just chew they have no taste it is made from some kind of flower and it works I only had one little bruise behind my ear and some yellow on my neck.
I had my upper lids LSL neck lift and laser on lower eyes and nose .
I love it go for it the little bit of being uncomfortable for a while is worth it .
I felt weak for about a week I was back to work in 8 days I am a bartender in a very busy place I just felt a little weak a my neck was stiff almost felt as if I was wearing a scarf.
Please let me know what you so and your results.

Deb I have been talking to the Dr who did your work, I am thinking of getting the Lifestyle lift and laser on the face. I was wondering if I should have my forehead lift done at the same time, as I am a bit worried that if my lower face is all done my upper will stand out in a bad way any , thanks for any help you can give me

unless your forhead is really wrinkled I would not it takes longer to heal and it can make you look like you had a face lift I will probably do it in the future to lift my eyes a bit but I dont want dramatic I loved the Dr and everyone there they made me very comfortable and I would do it again. If you are interested in forhead lift and think you need it I say get it over with but if it is not that bad wait lifestyle will make you lok so fresh and take 7 to 10 years off your face without it good luck he is a great Dr. I would not hesitate my sister wants to come from Canada and get him to do hers.

Thinking of having the neck and lower face done with Dr. Mucci in Coral Springs. Absolutely do not want all the pain that seems to be involved. Has anyone (besides someone that is on their staff) able to tell me that they had this done recently and did not have all this pain?

I am having my life style lift 2/17/10, by Dr mucci in fort lauderdale, he is dong my upper eye lids and the neck and face, i will be taking darvocet and percocet for the pain because i suffer from fibromyalgia and i already have those meds at hand, plus i read that vicodin makes u vomit, i cant imagine someone just taking Tylenol after that surgery. Dr Mucci seems to be vary competent and experienced but you never know what can go wrong, i just hope i am not disfigured or something terrible like that, but trusting in Jehovah God i know everything will work out

Hi I did use Dr Mucci on April 1st 2011.Im so happy with my results.I had the mini lift with laser around my mouth and cheeks.If you send me your email I can send pictures.Im 47 and I feel I look well rested.You have to be realistic that it is surgery so I was driving after 5 days but didnt feel myself for about 2 weeks .Ive had other plastic surgery so I kind of knew what to expect. The injections to numb you in the beginning are painful but I was expecting the worst and it was bearable.The Dr was great.Spoke to me the whole time and let me know what was next.ICE ICE the first 24 hours and have someone there so yu can just lay there and heel properly

Yours was in 2010? How do you look now in 2013? It is supposed to last 10-15 years, correct? I do believe that was what I was told. I plan to live to 110 like my aunt did, and she continued to look very good.

I look the same...but i need botox .Nothing last 10 years, but a good 5-7 Im hoping

Hi...new to this forum.. I am a bit confused that the dates of posts are not in order I am intersted in lifestyle lift in Fort Lauderdale Area...I know of 2 docs, 1 male, 1 female...would love some input from people who have used them...can you email or message me here to give me details? I am also intersted in the "private office" doc who does a similar procedure or other info people have about local doctors. My problem is the neck, slack muscles...a little jowls, but mostly soft under the neck, my skin is great, it is the muscle underneath. This, for me, is really heriditary. My mother and grandmother both had this sort of mushy jaw/neck problem. Cam you email me through the site?? I understand that we can not name docs on this site. I would appreciate any and all feedback, positive or negative. Thanks

???Looks to me like people are naming doctors all the time. I am going to have mine in Ft. L too. I see your date is 2008. Did you have it? I am scheduled for tomorrow. Nervous? Yes, some, especially concerned about the recovery TIME. I live a busy life-style.

Wow! Thanks for your revelation! I just asked for my deposit back today and am waiting for a response. I am going to save a bit more money and use the surgeon that did my tummy tuck. She was awesome and I'm beginning to believe the cliche "you get what you pay for". Hope you heal well and I get my deposit back! Pack Leader

Wow it's been a month since I posted here. Downtime was a good two weeks. I hurt so much I could barely wash let alone use make-up. I would never have done this had I known. The results are "ok" so far. My neck looks fabulous. The rest, face and upper eyes ehhh...better yes but not "right". About the facility...it was very assembly line and not private. When I asked for a screen to be put up to remove my stitches I was rudely told no, that only personnel use that hallway, yet I had just come down that way. The person who removed my stitches was beyond rough! I was already in such incredible pain that it was just a nightmare. I had "awakened" during the lift procedure and after begging the Dr to stop and give me another Valium he continued for several minutes until he finally did stop and give me more medication. I had an opening of the wound around my right ear and bleeding. All the Dr did was put a steri-strip on it and told me to keep it dry. Luckily it's healing properly now. I have pain and soreness as well as numbness around both ears. I have to go back in to have my lower eyes done and am literally scared half to death but that is my worse feature, should have done it first I guess. The whole experience has been aweful and I would never recommend it to anyone. Money wasn't an issue...I should have done some homework on this. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of help or you need to talk post procedure. It's been a very lonely, painful and disappointing experience.

My Mom is planning on doing this procedure with Dr. Catalfumo in Ft. Lauderdale (or maybe in an office in Boca, I'm not sure). I'm trying to do some research for her since she really hasn't. Can you share who your doctor was? How are you feeling about things now, a few months later? Thanks!

Did your mom have the procedure done with Dr. Catalfumo? How did it come out?
