It's been over 7 months since I had my lifestyle lift with Dr. M in the Beverly Hills office. Still could not be happier. No jowls, neck and face are tight but not at all pulled looking. Saw a friend a few weeks ago that I had not seen since I have the procedure, she immediatly wanted the phone number. No residual issues. I went to my derm yesterday he said it was a beautiful job. I know some people have not had the results I had, I feel for them. I'm sure it has alot to do with the doctor who performs the lift.
