I received my LSL 3-17-2010 from Dr. C in Troy. It was very painful to say the least, but my problem is he pulled my skin VERY tightly. This is my second facelift in 20 years, so I know what is normal and what isn't. My skin is pulled so tightly that lumps are clearly visible under my cheeks. God, I just want to scream.
I called his office several times and told this was "normal" and the lumps would eventually smooth out. Yeah, maybe in about 3 or 4 years.
DON'T GO TO LIFESTYLE LIFT IF YOU WANT TO PRESERVE YOUR FACE. Go see a board certified surgeon and be sure you check his/her credentials thoroughly.
