My Mom's LSL
My mom has always been embarrassed over her...
- 20 Mar 2010
My mom has always been embarrassed over her "turkey neck" She went to a consultation with LSL and tried to ask all the right questions and tried to get as much information as possible before signing on the dotted line. They told her it was minimally invasive and minimal pain and she'd be in and out in no time. they even talked her into getting her eyelids done.
She put it off and put it off for a while and they kept calling her and even had her come in again. On the second "consultation" there just happened to be a woman in the office telling my mother how "Great" it was and how quick it healed etc etc. What a Crock!! I think she was a plant.
My mom did decide to have it done though. I thought it was great because she was doing something for herself. I encouraged her even though I wish to God I didnt now.
She had it done and she came home in absolute agony. This is a woman who has a huge tolerance to pain. I have never seen her in such a state. Her face and neck were swollen past recognition! Two days following the procedure she looked like she had two Huge Goiters growing out of both sides of her neck. She called the office and they told her swelling was normal. This was Way past normal. She went to have her stitches out and the swelling in her neck was fluid and had to be drained! And then she had to be wrapped up again for three more days.
Her scars are just like the others Ive seen on this site. Front and back of both ears, it looks like they tried to cut them off! I don't think this place is what the commercials make them out to be. Also when she went in for the stitches to come out, they were very rude to her. She had asked to see the doctor, but was told he was busy of course. She has another appointment coming up next week but Im sure she wont see a doctor then either even though the swelling is coming back and shes 3 weeks into this mess.
I did a little more checking..and LSL was sued by the state of New York for putting up fake reviews and fake customer pictures online and in their ads. If its so great, why did they have to lie? And by the way..they Lost the suit and had to pay 300,000 to the state of New York.
My advice for all it's worth is If your going to bother spending all this money...go to a REAL SURGEON! This is crazy and believe me I so wish I had found this site before I encouraged my mom to go to this hack shop! She did end up going to her own Doctor and he put her on more antibiotics and some kind of cream to help with the scarring..just food for thought.
Pros - NOT A ONE! The whole procedure was done under a Huge Lie!
Cons - Pain beyond compare, Bruising, Scarring which is not going to just fade away, (there's too much of it), infections, and my mother will not come out of her house and hasn't in three weeks!
