I went in to have a mini-facelift that was supposed to remove my jowls and tighten up my lower face. After the swelling went down I could see no difference in my face and went back to the doctor to show him and was basically ignored. My sister had the same procedure done the same day with the same results. She went back with me 60 days later and we were left sitting in a room for a long period of time, and finally just left the office. We then did what we should have done before and that was go online to check this company out. Boy we were shocked to see so many complaints aganst this company!! Surprisingly no one has done anything about it so I decided to try to change that. My sister and I are considering filing a claim against them in Small Claims court and would appreciate any advice you could give us. I did notify the BBB about this but was told they could not help me. They referred me to a medical website which I tried to contact, but never received any reply from them. The BBB did have some complaints about this company but I don't know for sure what they were. I would appreciate your feedback on this.

This company is a scam and all they care about is financial numbers not the patient. As a former employee I can tell you that hardly any of the nation companies consultants even have a medical background and could be really good used car salesman.

Look I say it is time to take action! I had my life Style lift at Troy Michigan office. I say let's stop complaining and get together and take action! My story is horrible. My results are horrible. I have an infection in the surgical area's, I was lied to, mislead, and taken for my money as well. All the complaints I have read, I so understand. We are human beings and not animals. If lawyers don't wanna take the chance, then we should as a group of people stand together and take action! This is my email lisalisa1507@yahoo.com my surgery was 4/09 and I have horrible scarring, headaches, vision problems, terrible itching, feels like bleach being poured on an open wound. Yes I have been ignored as well. I requested my records and have consulted some lawyers but looking for the best. Even without a lawyer I will pursue this cause. Rememeber facts speak for themselves, and those scars on our faces, our hearts, and the lies will come to the surface. Let us ban together and let our scars tell the true stories of what we have endured. Please look up on the internet the story of the NY Attorney Generals judgement against Lifestyle lifts. Numbers speak louder than high priced lawyers! Let us stop this from happening to other people. "I will not let fear stop me from the justice due me." I ask for justice from lifestyle lift to no avail. Now I seek it! Stand with me.

I had this lift in June 2006. In the early months I was very excited and it appeared that I had received the results that I wanted...As a result of the early months there was 6 of my friends that also had this procedure. We were all shown what our results would look like by the person that stood behind us and pulled the skin back...Of the 6 that had this procedure we are all extremely dissatisfied...Other than the scars on my ears (that I now have to wear a hairstyle that covers) I look the same. We have an appointment on Tues Aug 25th with one of the Drs. It will be interesting to see what they say...you can contact me at mac123sky@yahoo.com

My mother, 84 years old, decided to have this procedure performed on July 1 for the first half and July 30 for the second half. I have never heard of a two part facelift. After the second procedure which they gave her a prescription for 750mg of Vicodin, 20 tablets, way too strong for someone her age, she was hospitalized for 7 days. She was diagnosed with Encephalopathy which gave her dementia. Encephalopathy was described to me as a swelling of the brain. She was totally confused and could not separate fact from fiction. She was seeing bugs, people trying to kill her, people fighting with her; she called the police that people were breaking into her home. From the hospital she then spent 9 days in a nursing home. We have spoken with a REAL plastic surgeon and he said he would never operate on an 84 year old and never has done a facelift in two parts. The word needs to be spread on these quacks. MD Degrees or not these people need to be stopped. Since when does a sales person discuss a medial procedure with you? I only wish that my mother would have spoken to her two daughters about this before doing it. One look on the internet and you can see this was not the place to go. Not only did this threaten her life, the surgery was very substandard. There is a reason why this is not located in a hospital. NO HOSPITAL WOULD HAVE THEM.

I had to drive almost 300 miles one way to get to the Lifestyle Lift location. I had explained to the representative EXACTLY what my needs were prior to going and that my situation was due to Bells Palsy and I needed to pull my brow up from hanging in my eye. They made me feel like I had come to the right place for help. They asked a lot of questions and I explained my only goal is to pull the brow up so I can have better vision. Upon getting to the appointment the individual assigned to my case informed me they do NOT do brow lifts. I asked WHY, , after I had fully explained my situation to the rep on the phone I had to make a 600 mile round trip to be told this information and asked if the reps get a commission...she said yes they do. I emailed them to tell them I would be calling the BBB. A rep called from the Schaumburg, Illinois location and encouraged me to see one of the surgeons at his "private practice". If I hadn't already figured out this was a scam, that was the 100% clincher. What a sick, twisted bunch of people. I went there hoping for help. I cannot afford a plastic surgeon and my insurance will not cover my issue. What horrible people to prey on those looking for help...not just a 'beauty fix'. Be warned! These are evil people.

The vast majority of Lifestyle Lift doctors are DOs (not even MDs) and are NOT Plastic Surgeons. David Kent is the founder and he is a DO.

Gordon Quick is their CEO, and was alleged to commit sexual battery and harassment when CEO for a non-medical company in MO-

Great choice for a company that works primarily with women.

Their doctors themselves have very weak credentials and there is not a single credible doctor in their organization; most of them are journeymen, and go from practice to practice. In addition to several Lifestyle Life deaths, they have had several life-threatening infections including Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) because they don’t sterilize their instruments; their surgeries take place in an office room.

They should be shut-down. Any harmed patient should contact their state medical board and also the Florida Attorney General who is doing an investigation.

I had a similar experience. I'm out over $6, 000 not to mention pain and suffering and loss of work. I contacted the Attorney General in CA and got a response stating "legal action could be taken agains this company by our office. Your complaint could be utilized as important evidence and provide vital documentation for our use." I urge you to contact your attorney general. I plan to notify the state medical board and Florida Attorney who is doing an investigation.
