i am a 64 year old women who was just so tired of having jowels and a neck that was so unattractive. i researched the lifestyle lift,read all the pros and con reviews and i asked my husband to just come and listen to see what it was about. i wanted it to look natural not dramatic just better. everyone was wonderful and the dr told us exactly what it was about and what to expect. within two weeks i could go out, had alot of bruising, not alot of pain at all.

i had it done in april of 2010, the after pics were done 6 weeks later. i was awake but comfortable throught the entire procedure and follow ups were excellent. my doctor and staff were the best ever, and i am so pleased with the results. my husband could not believe the difference it made. even my adult sons said i looked great.

there is bandaging that you do and sleep with, and for a while you cant recline totally. however, the biggest downfall is no coffee! but, i wanted it done so badly, i did the no coffee.

would i recomend life style? without a doubt. it was the best $5,000 i ever spent. my sincere thanks to my lifestyle dr. and his staff.


I also had it done on August 12, 2010, and am very happy with the results. I had it done in Little Falls, NJ by Dr. Wise.

hi Goldiemary, SuzyQue10 is right, there are no Lifestyle Lift Dr's in Ct. Burlington Mass.was the best one for me to go to, and fortunately, it was the right choice. Dr. Alex was my miracle worker.

Aleta, I am so glad to see your post - I am scheduled July 18th and am excited as well as scared. Seeing your amazing results makes me know I have made the right decision! You look great. I'm in Cincinnati, OH. Because of graduations, vacations, etc couldn't get in any sooner. Dread the procedure - know it's not going to be a walk in the park but looking so forward to looking in the mirror and not seeing that old lady that is always standing between me and the mirror - you know the one!! She mimicks your every move and you just know that can't be you.

I was scared too. When he gave me the pills to relax me it got a little scary because I was so relaxed it's just a weird feeling. I could talk to the Dr. and the nurse but it was just a "spacy" feeling in my head. I felt a few pricks from the needles in my jaw, nothing bad. I did the lift and he also did the neck under the chin. I felt nothing. After I looked like a truck hit me, bandages everywhere. No pain. My husband had already picked up the pain pills while I had the procedure done. Honestly, I had alot of bruising. Black and blues, black eye, and no pain.
The worse part for me was no coffee for six weeks. I wanted this so bad I didn't even care. After it's done, and you have to get a wrap for your chin, use it for the full six weeks after you have it done, very very important. ( I bought an ace bandage and clipped it on the top of my head). Take pudding cups, jello cups anything soft that you can swallow to eat the night after your surgery. I lived on egg noodles for a week, they slide down easy. bring a straw with you so you can drink something. we stayed at a motel nearby overnight, because you have to go back next day.to far for us to travel home and back. I looked awful for the next week, but after I started to heal, I would go back to Dr. Alex tomorrow and have it done again if I had to. I am very pleased. The old lady look I hated was gone.
Keep in touch, and good luck. Aleta

Hi ladies, just wanted to post a 2 year photo of my lifestyle lift. I am still very happy with my results. It was worth every
bruise and lack of coffee to have these amazing results. All I can say is you need to shop around and do your homework on
the surgeon you pick.. It was worth all the time I spent finding the right doctor. See you next year. Aleta

,Hi, I don't know where you went in Ct, but I can tell you the lifestyle lift is a surgical procedure done by a certified plastic surgeon. There are some doctors in ct who advertise a procedure in their office for a lift, with out surgery, using injections and fluids. All I can tell you is research research research before you get it done and where. Go to a qualified Life Style lift facility and talk to the surgeons there, it's free and you have nothing to loose, before you make your decision on where to go, once its done, its done and there is no turning back, be sure. Keep in touch. Aleta

Thank you for your input. I did go to a LSL office last week and have done a lot of research since. I do have a very qualified surgeon, actually two. One I have used for another procedure 8 yrs ago and one that just removed a tumor from my husbands neck. I am gg2 stick w/them, not sure which one I will use but I feel very good about them and not doubtful as I feel w/ LSL.

All I can say is that you have to be confident and happy with the doctor who does your procedure. I was totally confident with the wonderful surgeon I had from beginning to end at Life Style Lift. Unfortunately, he has since passed away, and Life Style Lift lost a wonderful talented surgeon from their team and I am thankful that I had the opportunity to be one of his patients. I wish you a Happy Healthy New Year and the best of luck with your procedure. Aleta

I have passed my 3 years in April that I had the Life Style Lift done. I am still happy with it. My husband and my children say it still looks good and that means alot to me. Its bitter sweet to post a new picture being that Dr. Alex passed away a year ago. then I thought, it is a tribute to him what a wonderful sugeon he was and how blessed I am to have been one of his patients. I will always have fond memories of him.
You look absolutely wonderful. I hope I can say that for myself in 2 1/2 years.

Hello everyone, just an update for my lifestyle lift from April of 2010. I am still HAPPY!!!! I take care of my lift, moisture cream, no sunburn, lots of water, and I still love it. I just turned 68 and I wouldnt hesitate to have it done again if I needed to. It would be bitter sweet to go back to Burlington, Mass, being Dr. Alex has passed away, but I would because they are all awesome there. I still am so thankful for Dr Alex and the lifestyle lift, and I truly have an angel to thank every day. Hope you all are as happy as I am.
Thank you so much for posting your progression. I just had mine done 4 months ago and have been wondering how the years might treat me. I know we all are different in how we heal but it is encouraging to see that it is possible for it to last well. You look wonderful and I am very happy for you.

Thank you so much for your kind words. You just can't just let it go on its own. You really have to put the work into keeping it look good. Sun, is a no no. Im talking sunburn. A little at a time works for me. Be careful not to fluxuate your weight, keep in mind the weight you were when you had it done, if you loose weight quickly, your face will show it, same with gaining. a super good moisture firming cream essential. Make sure you drag the moisture cream around your neck to the back of your neck and under your chin. My incisions hardly show at all. Post a picture Suzie so we can see how beautiful you look. look forward to hearing from you. Aleta

Hi Aleta, thank you for your response and for the great tips. I can sure see how weight gain or loss could really affect the process. What firming moisturizer do you use? I am such a dumb bunny when it comes to computers but I will get one of my daughters to help me post some pictures. My incisions are really nice too. I really had a good Doc. I would love to stay in contact with you. You have already helped me. Thank you, Aleta. Suzie.
