Opinions on Success Rate of Lifestyle Lift?

My mother is thinking of having Lifestyle Lift done. I have read a lot of the posts from people who have had this done and I am now very confused. There are alot more negative posts than positive. I myself have had plastic surgery (breast implants). I did see negative posts, but I saw more positive ones (high percetage rate of sucessful segery) in this regard. I also understand that any procedure may go wrong. However, what would be your expert opinions with regard to the percentage rate of Lifestyle Lift positive results?

A lifestyle lift is a modified limited scar facelift often done by doctors that are not plastic surgeons. I would recommend a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon first to see what your options are..

Lifestyle lift is a procedure that is performed by different surgeons using different techniques. If you can identify a specific surgeon who performed a friends lift and can be reassured that he/she will perform the surgery, then you may be willing to proceed, otherwise I would urge caution.
