I used the Dallas location for mine. The results are pleasant but not perfect (nothing ever is). I healed quickly and would do it again.

It has been over a year and there has been some sagging but not a lot. The effect is very natural and still an improvement over where it would have been without it.

My doctor had the procedure herself so she was very experienced. She was very patient, gentle and kind.

What is the difference in this and a regular necklift? Which locations are the worst?

Can anybody explain the difference in what they do as compared to regular necklift? Why is it called LSL? What is so different? Which locations are the bad ones?

I chose a regular local plastic surgeon. The peace of mind knowing I am less than 50 miles away from my Doctor, instead of 200 miles away is worth the price of the anesthetic. Sleeping through it all was worth it too! The price of a lower facelift was actually about the same. If you are still out there, how do you feel about your choice now, over a year later?

I had lifestyle lift 3 weeks ago and results are fantastic the only differance is that you are not put to sleep which is a bonus anisthesia ia VERY dangerous thing and that is what kills people bad results are not from, lifestyle lift it is from bad doctors and bad patients who dont follow before and after procedures .
I know it is nerveracking when you read all the negative stuff but a lot of it is people like you who have not had a lifestyle lift but believe all the negative stuff sometimes things can go bad but 95% of the time I think it goes great I have met a lot of people who have had it and are happy and I know someone who has seen hundreds of people because of the line of work she is in and she rarely finds anyone unhappy.
The same people keep posting negative stuff a lot of people are missing out on a great experiance because they are scared just reserch your dr. and go for it it is a facelift.

I'm still out there! After more than a year later I would still do it again. A little sagging but that is normal, it still looks better than it did. I see no scarring (but I suppose it is behind my ears).

All face lifts sag a little after all the swelling is gone they can only stretch your neck so far every plastic surgeon I saw told me that even lifestyle lift but all that skin that is cut off is not coming back and if you have the neck muscles done you get an even better result.

What are the cons (for you) to going with a local plastic surgeon?

Yes, I'm SURE! I'm a software consultant. However I do heal quickly and have a high threshhold for pain...and everyone's face is different. It's an individual decision no doubt, but no matter what anyone says you should check references on the doctor you are considering. Just so you know I was scheduled for this two years ago and chickened out for the same reason. I changed my mind after this new doctor joined the Dallas team who actually had the procedure done to herself.

I am thinking about having the LSL procedure. How long ago did hyou have it done and how long did it take for your recovery. Was the pain as bad as I have read? Also, do you really hear them cutting your skin and feel the pulling? I think that would be the worst part! I have also read that the shots were horrible. Is that so?

I had it done the first week of September. I did not feel anything and really don't remember much. They deadened the skin before the shots so they weren't that bad. The first day was the worst for pain but of course they give you painkillers. The next few days were better. The hardest part for me was sleeping with my head elevated and on my back since I usually sleep on my side. I am pleased with the results and have received a lot of compliments. I would do it again.

I had this done a week ago in the Dallas location. Was your doctor's name Elliott? I was happy with her and would feel better knowing someone else had good results. I have lots of bruising and swelling yet but am now worried about scarring and long term results. Can't believe I didn't investigate more thoroughly. I had lower eyelids done and have had stitches out but eyes are still very red and don't look good. This worries me more than the neck although I may just need to give it more time. I agree this is like a cattle call, and they are not upfront about procedures and aftermath. I couldn't believe I didn't see the doctor when they removed the eye stitches. Everyone in the postcare room had the same thoughts.

I was considering this procedure, but changed my mind after reading all the horror stories here. I don't heal very fast, and I have a low threshold for pain. The bottom line is, I think I'll pass. Besides, smiling is the best "face lift" you can ever get. P.S. Are you SURE you don't work for that doctor?
