Has anyone had the Lifesyle Lift?
Was wondering about it and wanted to know if you're happy with the results?

Not I -- but a few years ago I followed a discussion on the eBay boards by people who did have it. The majority of them were not pleased with the results.

Here's the link to the eBay discussion. There are 1,500 posts and a lot of photos there:
Lifestyle Lift: Category-Specific Boards: eBay Discussion Boards

Have you noticed that all the before and after photos in their ads include a notation that the people pictured had additional procedures...neck lift, eye lift, additional facial lifts, etc? If the Lifestyle Lift alone produces good results, why do they not use photos of people who have had only that procedure?

The selling gimmick about the Lifestyle Lift is that it can be done in an hour on your lunch break. The implication is that you can go back to work right after the procedure has been performed.

Below is a link to some of the photos posted on the eBay discussion board. Would you want to go back to work after this:

What I have read is that the patients have injections to numb their face instead of general anesthesia which is why the cost is lower. Can you imagine going through this procedure awake? Don't think all of the doctor's are board certified either. Remember, this is a franchise business. All Dr.s are not necessarily Board Certified Plastic Surgeons either. Buyer beware!

After watching the You Tube videos, anyone that goes ahead with this procedure is nuts.

Yes, the eBay discussion board is filled with patients talking about how it felt to get 20 or more injections into the face and then to smell their skin burning during the procedure. And there is a big market for re-doing the screwups of this facelift.

And the benefit is what, being awake?

I dont know if your question was asked facetiously. They actually do promote the benefit of being awake as being less dangerous than going under anesthesia. But, when you read the experiences of those who've had the Lifestyle Lift, how much the facial injections hurt and how it felt to smell their skin being cauterized, you might think that being put under anesthesia sounds pretty good in comparison.

Was definitely being sarcastic. I would imagine it might be less expensive than regular face lifts if anesthesia isn't involved which would make it seem worth it for some....NOT ME!
I worked in an office that gave Botox injections and fillers. I had to watch what it was like to see the injections in a patient's face. It is a long ass needle going from the corner of your mouth to reach the top of your cheek bone to inject fillers that plump your cheek bones which adds a little lift to the jaw line and above. No way, baby!!!!!! OMG...what torture to do to yourself. The lips...forget about it!
