Lifestyle Lift Disappointment - Wanted to Give Myself a "Lift"
on 21 Sep 2011
I also have had a bad experience with the LifeStyle Lift. Very similar stories to the rest of you. I went in on Monday told them I was 'healthy', never checked my med. records. Set appointment for Wednesday. Went in on Wed. and was brought into room and given pain med cocktail. Doctor comes n five minutes later and says to come on. I told him I just took the medication and needed to wait. I told him I have a big fear of needles and he replied 'Honey you knew you were gonna have needles coming here today, come on!' So I went and they put me in the chair and put this vibrating thing on my chin and proceded to put about 25-30 needles all over my head. I was crying and then I finally passed out for a bit. When I came to I could feel them cutting me, putting the lipo suction thing in my neck and I passed out crying again. When done like 3 hours later went home with 2 pain meds. I did not get to fill the prescription for the pan meds wo I had antibiotics and tylenol to get me thru. did not do quite what I needed so I was in a great deal of pan for 3-4 days until started healing. About 3 weeks after I started going out but I still looked like a football head. I saw my friends kids and they told her I looked 'different, weird'. So now fast forward 3 years...still have lumps behind my ears, have a scar under my chin that you can see where it was pulled together in the middle ( like a stretched out letter'W') and my right side is hanging again like it did previously.
the real kicker to the story is that I called to the office when I noticed how different each side looked and called the office. I did go up and see a different doctor because the doctor that did my surgery is no longer allowed to perform the surgery only allowed to do follow ups. WHY??? So the new doctor told me he felt it looked fine and if I wanted any other work done I would have to pay for it....orignal price $5600. Also asked 'do you really want to go thru this again?!"
I am just wondering has any one ever sued a doctor for this and won??
