5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck all done, November 1. 2013

I am a mother of three, 34, 5'2, approximately 150 pounds! I have wanted a tummy tuck after my first baby! My mom had one and 13 years later she still looks amazing. I would only do it with her surgeon. I am of course super anxious about the complications and something happening to me, even though the procedure is done so often and precautions are made. I recently went in for my first...

I Love Dr. Paul! - Beverly Hills, CA

Besides making you feel very comfortable and having a great sense of humor, Dr Paul is a very skilled surgeon who handled my Lifestyle Lift and my subsequent allergic reaction to the anti-bionics like a pro. Because I was disfigured and swollen from the medication, my outcome was a little disappointing. Do not get me wrong, I still look 100 times better than I did before but not quite as good as I wanted. So guess what, Dr. Paul is going to re-do my procedure for nothing to make sure that I am 100% satisfied. If you have to get a cosmetic procedure done, make sure Dr Paul is the one to do it.

awesome results - Beverly Hills, CA

Dr. Paul is a wonderful and magnificent surgeon. He performed a lower face lift. Although it's only been a month since the surgery, i'm getting compliments saying that i look 58 instead of my actual age of 68. Dr. Paul's surgical skills are extraordinary. I would highly recommend him.

Finally; my Outsides Match my Insides. - Beverly Hills, CA

Dr. Malcom Paul is a surgical magician who gave me just what I had hoped for by getting plastic surgery. He is conscientious, communicative, empathic, intelligent, and has years of practical procedures under his belt. He was there for me from our first consultation until my last follow-up. What more can I say about a doctor who listened so attentively to my concerns and wishes and then delivered more than I could have hoped for? Thanks to his expertise and suggestions I am literally, a new man!

LifeStyle Lift------totally Disappointing! I Was Scammed! - Beverly Hills, CA

Dr. Paul was very personable initially and extremely positive about the procedure to be done on my facial structure. He said to me many times on my 2 initial visits that he knew I would be extremely happy with my results! He said he would give me a beautiful jawline and the jowls would be completely gone. I was looking forward to the positive change! The procedure itself was very disturbing in that I could hear all the interaction between the doctor and the 2 assistants (one of which told me she was a nurse and that I was in the surgical center. I was later told by the staff she was not a nurse.) there was very harsh, stressful words from the doctor to his assistants and this was very traumatic for me to hear in my "drugged" but aware state! There is much more I can share but this is an overview of my experience. I was at the office four times in the next 6-7 months after surgery and expressed my concerns about the whole experience and disappointment in my lack of results and almost no facial change after the procedure. My last visit in 2014 Dr. Paul said to me that I looked fine and I had an oblong face and he wasn't sure why that shape face is difficult to work with. He said I just need to be happy with the results and then told me other surgeries he would be happy to do on me with additional cost of course. Really! That was it! It was really ridiculous! My husband was with me at every appointment and my caretaker after surgery. He witnessed everything I have shared! I kept contacting the Beverly Hills office until they finally made me an appointment with Dr. Lee in LifeStyle Lift Santa Ana office on Hutton Street for a second opinion. I met with Dr. Lee and the office manager Monica. They documented my experience to present to the LL corporate office for another surgery. Dr Lee said he would have done the surgery very differently than it had been done and basically acknowledged that he could not see any positive surgery results. This appointment with Dr Lee was February 16, 2015. Dr Lee said he would write a report and Monica communicated to not be impatient as the process could take 4-6 weeks before I would receive a call from her. At about 7 weeks I began trying to contact her and the LifeStyle Lift offices only to learn the company closed its business on March 11, 2015. I have left out many details but this is my experience with this company and its employees.
