Lifestyle Lift Failure - No Change in Jowl Area or Wrinkles Around Mouth

I had the lifestyle lift 8 weeks ago. There is absolutely no change in the jowl area and I still have all of the wrinkles around my mouth. The frown lines on both sides of my mouth are also still there. What a waste of money!

The only positive is I had liposuction under my chin and it is somewhat improved.

Would I do it again? Absolutely not! You can feel all of the painful shots and hear the cutting. What the doctor showed me I would look like in his office and how I truly look are two completely different things.

Name not provided

i would never recommend my doctor because when i was in his office he showed me how the results would look and there is no difference in the before and after

Dear Ohio, Where in ohio did you have the lsl? I was so desperately wanting this but not now. I should have known since I fell and broke my jaw 20 years ago and the great malo-facial doctor kept telling me how serious the surgery was that if he cut wrong I could be paralized or could never close my eyelid. I guess there is no quick fix. My office is in cincinnati.I wondered why when I signed up in 2007 and then cancelled the Doctor himself called me and left a message on my home recorder.Ohio let me know more of what they did.Donna

I was scheduled for LSL in Tampa...but I am freaked out by the info I found on this site. I will have to lose my down payment of $400.00, but at least I will not have to worry about being ruined for life. My cost would have been $6,000 (with my discount, ha ha ). It is true, they do not tell you the truth about the healing process. I have learned my lesson, and it was expensive. I think I prefer my present face.

Gayle, Hi, I was wondering if you have any noticeable changes since you last posted? Many of us post and then never do the follow up as to good or bad. I know that you were not happy with the pain endured during the procedure but how are you feeling now about your lift? Best, Chrystal Eckes

I will leave no comment for now on that question. Hopefully soon, I will be able to follow up with my full story. Best, Chrystal

Chrystal, I know its been quite a while since I first talked about my surgery,so here goes. I am still completely dissatisfied with the whole procedure. I truly believe I look just the same as before the surgery, with the exception of one scar below my left ear. I don't know if it will ever go away. The doctor agreed to re-do the surgery but there is no way he will ever touch me again. I can't go through all of that again! I almost forgot to mention I have small knots under my neck, too. He just told me to massage them, I did and they are still there. Thanks again, Gayle

Hi Gayle, sorry that you are still unhappy. There is nothing that I can say to you that will take the pain away but know that you are not alone! I do hope that you can find a way to help the knots under the skin and as far as the scar goes, try scarderma available at the pharmacy. I hope you continue to heal and be well. Best, Chrystal.
