Terrible Scarring and Numbness Almost Two Years After my "Lunchtime" Procedure

I had the lifestyle lift in Jan 2006 and I am still suffering from numbness in both of my jaws, and severe scarring around both ears, front and back. I have had to grow my hair out much longer than I normally wear it and am self-conscious whenever the hair moves from over my ears. I am particularly sensitive during the summer months when I am swimming and the ears are much more visible...so are the SCARS! I contacted the doctor that performed this surgery and they have agreed to attempt to improve the appearance of the scars at no additional cost. I urge all of you that have been unhappy with your results to seek recourse via your indivdual doctors. Most would be happy to attempt to improve the situation. Please post updates here as I would like to hear more about some of the scaring stories. Thanks! CRG

I also had a LSL on July, 2013. My neck and jowls still hang and don't look any better. I am left with numbness around my face and up into my hairline. Also, my cheeks burn, sting, and itch. I filed a complaint with BBB in Utah and with the MN State Attorney's office. Their response to BBB was that I will not get a refund ($13,107) or any compensation. I even sent them pictures of what I now look like. The only thing LSL cares about is getting money from us regardless of the results/damage. I can't even find an attorney that will handle this. One person can't do much, but if we unite, we can hold them responsible for what they did to us. Please bombard the Utah BBB with complaints and contact your state's Attorney General's office and ask them to investigate false and misleading advertising. FL and NY filed a lawsuit and were awarded $300,000 each. I hope all that read this will take action and not let LSL get away with this. Gloria R

I had this done in Feb 2010 and still have bumps on both sides of my face in front of my ears and under my chis from the sutcher knots. No way to hide them. Both cheeks are still numb and the scars have never went away. Now 3 years later all the wrinkles are back and I look older the I did before. I filed a complaint with the Michigan attorney general and have heard nothing. Th AG in florida contacted me and took my deposition for a class action suit, but have not heard from them anymore either. Seems like nobody cares what this company does to men and women or the torture and pain we go through at the hands of a fraudulent company. Now I see Debbie Boone on there commercials, she looks beautiful, wonder what they are paying her to lie for them. If I knew how to get a hold of her I would tell her of this site and then see how she feels about backing this torture chamber. Sincerely, Sassy 7858

I would like to know why the first 3 comments, posted with pictures attached, are POSITIVE, when the vast number of online responses to Lifestyle Lift surgeries are horror stories! Makes me very suspicious: are they posted by LSL employees fraudulently posing as 'satisfied' customers: this company has been successfully prosecuted for doing just that. BUYER BEWARE!!
