I had it done in Albuquerque. My Dr. has been doing plastic surgery for years.

It is NOT an hour procedure and you are NOT ready to go to work in a week! It is very extensive SURGERY and you will need AT LEAST two weeks before you go back to work. I wore a shorter wig to work to hide my scars, and I looked fine. I look about 15 years younger than my age.

If you look like this in 11 days, what is your complaint?

Update almost three months post op: I am still looking great and getting lots of compliments.

Some of the doctors on this site who do not do Lifestyle Lifts have stated it only lasts three years and that is incorrect. My plastic surgeon said it will last ten years.

I highly recommend it!

I think you have to send me a private message. He is the older doctor, and his last name starts with a D.

As I mentioned,the price is now higher than what I paid for, a year ago. I had my consultation two years ago, was quoted my price, and that was the price that was locked in, even though I had my surgery a year later, in which time I was able to save up for it.

I think the biggest thing to note for you Rose is that you lost a lot of weight somewhere in between the before picture and the post op pic. Clearly all of your results are not just from the surgery. What type of weight loss program did u do in addition to the surgery and did u lose weight before or after the face lift?

I had my surgery in Atlanta by Dr. Whitaker. I am happy with her and think she did a great job. She answered all my questions about what to expect.

Peggy, I had numbness for 8 months--but everyone is different. Most of the numbness will go away after 6 months; and yes, it is a weird feeling. But I am so glad I got it done, and you will be too! Do not feel guilty--you deserve to look your best!

I went in for injectables and Dr. T is the rudeest, most unprofessional (full of himself) doctor. He should be sued. Karma! I bet he looses his license due to his inability to be kind to people! He gives the whole office a bad taste!

If anyone has had bad surgery and has written about it on this site, keep in mind it is not the fault of the Lifestyle Lift but the fault of a bad doctor. All one has to do is look at celebrity websites to see some major botched up faces by some of the most expensive plastic surgeons in the world. I will post photos here; the first, my original neck and jowels, which weren't awful but I wanted to have something done before I got really bad. The second photo with my long straight hair and white tank top, I took of myself at ten days post op; I put concealer on to hide the bruises around my mouth, but you can see my neck starting to get yellow from the black and blue healing. The third one was eleven days post op, with my shorter wig, to hide my scars. The fourth was in England, 24 days post op, wearing a long wig to hide my scars. The doctor also did a little lipo under my chin. I'm very pleased! P.S. I am 56 years old! ---- Update 1-1/2 yrs post op: I will be 58 yrs old next month, and I look 40. I am still thrilled with my results. I have been reading some of the doctors' comments on these pages, and shame on them. They are giving false information, because they realize that the LS Lift has been taking the country by storm, and they are losing business. So they have sour grapes. Some of the misinformation they are giving, is that the LS Lift is not performed by 'real' plastic surgeons. That is a lie. All LS Lift doctors are board-certified plastic surgeons, and many had their own practices before joing the LS Lift team. Also, they said it only last 2 yrs or so, and that is another lie. The LS Lift, depending on genetics and other factors in a person's lifestyle, lasts fron 8 to ten years. Again, shame on all these plastic surgeons, who are posting misinformation to scare people. I would do it again, and I would not give my money to these expensive plastic surgeons who would post such misleading comments on this site. P.S. I do NOT work for the Lifestyle Lift.
