I have always know i would get a facelift when the signs of aging were apparent. 2 co-workers had this procedure done by Dr Ho. One with good results, one not so much. Her neck is practically the same as it was, but she had a hematoma and needed a lot of work in that area in the first place. I am very nervous about the lack of anesthesia used, But, they had no problems.
Today I did a search for aftercare. What I found were numerous reviews from very unhappy patients, Anything from I felt it all, to results do not last, to how bad they look now to continuing pain. I am seriously rethinking doing this and would love some feedback. Dr Ho is Board Certified in both Otolarygotomy & Plastic Surgery. None of the complaints named him, but very disparaging remarks about LifeStyle Lift facilities and their treatment of patients afterwards.
I forgot to mention he was unable to do my lower...

The recovery time was longer than anticipated. I had a lot of fluid retention, esp on my neck. Dr Ho drained off excess fluid twice. I feel Dr Ho did an excellent job with the surgery. My scars are hardly noticeable at this point, and it's less than 2 months. I will post a new picture as soon as I get one I like. I'm not as good with "selfies", unlike most kids with cell phones!
My Doctor: Vu Ho, MD
co worker. He seriously misled me about being able to have additional pain meds during the surgery. He did not want to come back to the office and see me when I was in excruciating pain. I was going to an Emergency Room if he hadn't. Saw me for two seconds on the follow up visit the next day. I wanted to update my review of Dr Ho. Went in to LSL today to have stitches removed. I asked to see Dr Ho. They said he wasn't there. Was told this person always takes out the stitches. I said I wanted a doctor to look at the healing. Once I said I wanted a copy of my records, the office coordinator came in. He had called Dr Ho. He has his own office not far away and he asked me to come there. I did and he spent plenty of time inspecting & draining some excess fluid and removing the sutures. We talked about all that had happened. He was unable, by law, to give me any more meds. It's the standards that allows Life Style Lift's to do what they do. They cannot give you any more than the manufacturer's recommended dose. He seemed genuinely concerned about my healing and asked me to see him at HIS office again Monday. I believe he is a good doctor but has to abide by the LifeStyle way of doing business. I think I would see him again but never recommend LifeStyle Lift.
