Concerned about the Lifestyle lift

You should be "concerned" - about why you are considering having a procedure that has vast numbers of unhappy patients!

Real facelifts by real plastic surgeons don't have these bad results. Before you proceed, check the reviews of LS lift on RealSelf and compare these to the reviews for a real facelift. There is no comparison. It is the only face you've got - do right by it and see a real Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Boston for a consultation and don't fall for the TV hype of a LS lift.

Dear Concerned:

I would be "concerned". Look into your physician's credentials and certifications. Make sure they are on staff at a hospital. Make sure you meet with them prior to surgery and avoid being screened by a nurse.

You may want to check out the following Office of the Attorney General of New York link regarding very serious allegations with the LSL center in New York:

Lifestyle Lift- Who should I go to in Boston?

The question should really be why do you think the "Lifestyle Lift" is for you. The most important concern that you should have is the expertise of the plastic surgeon. The Lifestyle Lift is heavily marketed as if it is something new or a different type of Facelift. In actuality if you research it you would find out that the Lifestyle lift is nothing more than a short scar Facelift.

Best advice would be to have a consultation with a plastic surgeon in your area. Be prepared to ask questions about the surgeon's experience, the number of procedures the surgeon has done, and look at "before and after" photos.

Discuss the options in your case for facial rejuvenation that may include a full Face lift, a short scar Facelift and non-surgical options such as Sculptra for volume correction, Laser resurfacing for surface irregularities and limited Neck lifts.

You should SERIOUSLY read up on the Lifestyle lift and its reputation BEFORE having it done. The procedure is heavily marketed in the media by a corporation who so far has been successfully prosecuted by the Attorney General of the State of New York for fraudulent patient testimonials. To decrease the likelihood of legal harassment - I will stop here.

I would look for a board certified plastic surgeon at the ASPS or ASAPS website to have a consultation for a facelift.  There are excellent plastic surgeons in Boston.
