Has anybody had a Lifestyle Lift in Little Falls, NJ within the past year? How was your experience? After reading many reviews, I am skeptical.

I have just completed the face lift surgery the 26th of dec 2012 at Little Falls. Dr Hamawy was my surgeon. First off, i lost close to 55 lbs in 1 yr and the skin was hanging under my chin, and my jowels were full. I am 60 yrs old. There was enough skin under my chin to clip on 3 clothspins :). Anyway, the surgery is not for the faint hearted. They did warn me of bruising and tightness after this surgery. This was not a simple cut get get up and leave procedure. They did put you in lala land with the Valium and other sedatives, and you are basically awake during this procedure. It was not as I expected, but today is Jan 4th and I am healing quite well. everyone is different. Dr hamawy knows exactly what he is doing. I had alot of skin removed from both sides of the face. The cuts go from my hairline down along the front of my ear contour around my ear lob and up the back of the ear.. big cutiing, left and right sides of my face.He also cut under my chin, tightened the muscle under my neck..I am just telling the audience that this was not a simple cut. I am not complaining at all. The staff was very friendly and knew the drill. I was very bruised after this procedure and still today have black n blue bruising, however it is going away daily. If you follow their directions, take the antibiotics and vitamins you will come out well. It took me 5 days before I had enough backbone to go out in public, very bruised. There was no real pain to this, swelling and bruising only. I give a 5 star to the surgeons at Little falls, read their bios, both double board certified and they have their own private practices. I read sooo much bad news about LifeStyleLift from all over the country and I feel bad for the folks that were not happy or going through legal avenues. I truly believe you need to know the surgeon, read his credentials, and have feedback from customers of those Drs. My neck is smooth, tight, all loose (turkeyneck), skin is gone, jowels are gone, skin is lifted ... I'm healing.. I month more and the swelling should be all gone, you really cant see where he cut, that fine! The guys an artist ! So, thats my experience with LifestyleLift.. I will look 10-15 yrs younger when all is healed.. am I happy with the procedure ? ... YES... good luck..

Hi folks, I have a procedure planned for a neck uplift, (Turkey neck) at LSL in Little Falls NJ, Has anyone on this forum been through a procedure there using Dr H. Hamawy, He has a private practice outside LSL in NY, Conn has a great reputation as Plastic Surgeon, and a facial reconstructive surgeon. Dr Hamawy is Double Board Certified, impressive credentIials. I've been reading through this forum and some experiences you folks had are frightening, maybe it was your Drs. any feedback welcomed. Frank

Hi! I didn't have my procedure in NY but had it done in Bellevue, WA by Dr. Santos. I had the neck lift, the facial lift and the laser surgery done in Sept. 2012. I am still in the healing process. However, I absolutely love the results of everything I had done. During surgery I did not have any pain (pretty much slept through it all) and after surgery I did not have any pain. My face or neck did not ever get black and blue. I look and feel 20 years younger and am loving it especially all the compliments from friends and family. I am so happy with myself now and loving every minute of it. Hope this helps you a little.

I will be going to Bellevue, Washington in Sept. and will have the procedure done on Sept. 12th. I was assured this was the best facility with the best results. Dr. Santos will be doing my surgery, he is one of the directors of lsl. I am looking forward to it. A bit nervous though as I do not like needles anywhere close to my face. Hope the valium does its job and knocks me out. Don't want to feel a thing.

also I have scars on both sides of my ears, like they have fallen.these scars should be behind my ears.I also had my eye lids done and the scars too are also visible. I was asked if my eye was swollen, due to the fact the incision was a little to far up on the inner corner of my eye.

Are you satisfied with your results? I have an appointment with Dr. Wise in Little Falls, NJ this Saturday. I may cancel the appointment after reading all the bad press on this procedure. Thanks

i have not made the final decision yet. i want some real comments from people who have had procedures done. i am hearing not such a good report as to treatment by staff, needels, fainting and am getting cold feet - so to speak - how long does this last? how can they say the results last 8 to 10 years when the procedure hasen't been around that long. i think i am going to cancel my eval. until i do a little more research. waiting for a reply...

No it will only last maybe 2 yrs.I had it done july 2008. Now one side of my face has a little jowel & the other doesn't. I'm 55 yrs old & they didn't take my after picture. That was very depressing & I was laid up for 3 weeks.Please go to a real facial plastic surgeon. Sincerly

I just had a consultation yesterday and was impressed with Dr Wise's credentials. All staff members were very accommodating and put me at ease but even though Dr Wise and I had a discussion I was surprised he didn't get close to my face to make a decision on the procedure necessary for me, he sat in a chair across the room and made his recommendations. I also am not sure what I plan to do.I have a list of patients who had the surgery performed by him and needless to say they are ecstatic, I hear it in their voices and needless to say have no reservations .

I am just starting to investigate a facelift/ eyelift. I have not gone to NJ for the eval, but I am thinking about it. I am also interested in knowing about the experiences of others at his office.
