Remember that Lifestyle lift is a marketing company that markets heavily. What a great infomercial! It sells a product and the product is a fantastic new, "revolutionary" procedure developed by a guru of Plastic Surgery who was concerned about patients' inability to afford "traditional procedures"......... Right? Not so fast. Let's do a quick analysis of their marketing claims.
Claim: The product is defines as a revolutionary procedure-------- False
There is no published description of a Lifestyle Lift in Medical Literature which defines it as unique.
Claim: Recovery time is quicker than "traditional procedures"------False
Any procedure, including an injectable can lead to bruising. Lifestyle Lift patients can and do have extended down times.
Claim: Lifestyle Lift is safer than "traditional procedures"--------------False
There is no statistical data to prove this. This is simply code for the fact that you won't be receiving sedation. In other words, you will be awake for the procedure. You will be awake for all of the local anesthesia shots required, and the noises and odors of the procedure. Why? This helps Lifestyle Lift get around having to pay for an Anesthesiologist or CRNA, IV sedatives, a crash cart, monitoring equipment, post anesthesia recovery personnel (Registered Nurse), and the cost of certifying/ maintaining an accredited ambulatory care surgical facility.
Claim: Lifestyle Lift takes "about an hour"---------------------------------False
Simply read the reviews posted on this website.
In summary, the question I would ask is, where is the door and who should I get a second opinion from?
