Anyone try it? If the needles are painfull forget it. I would rather be knocked out. I have heard good and bad, heard it does not last long. Need to do something for the sagging chin and neck so if anyone's tried this, please let me know.

I had it done in 06. I've had severe pain ever since. It's all a marketing scam, in my opinion. They sewed my earlobe to my face, the permanent sutures I was never told about, are coming through as bumps behind my ear& are very unsightly. They offer to redo you, but why go thru the same thing with the same doctor? I am currently in treatment with a neurologist for the terrible pain. Just do your homework. Check out the Dr. with the APSB& the state medical boards. Very important. Some docs are good, some are not.

The needles are NUMEROUS& extremely painful. They also don't warn you that you will smell your skin burning or feel the clipping in your ears. This is not an easy procedure at all!!

Call the ABPS, AMA & your state medical licensing Dept to ask about your Dr. It's open to the public.

No way, they said they were just right and what I really needed now was a brow lift at a extra cost of course. Fact is and you can read this for ourself, This is a revision of an old lift from the late 60's early 70's -- it was abondoned then because of the terrible results and it looks like history is repeating itself. Also, look at the lawsuits Kent has put out trying to shut up everybody and anybody. Another good place to look at is infomercial scams.com. There is good and bad every where, but don't think LSL is out to be your special buddy. Best to you, chrystal eckes.
Thanks for letting us know "the other side of the story." Sorry for all you ladies have been through. ((hugs))

Default Lifestyle Lift in Retrospect

Since I cannot complain, I shall tell the truth. Don't do this to yourself unless you have cash to throw away and you want more scars and wrinkles than you started with. The procedure is harsh to say the least. The commercials are misleading via what you wind up with. It has cost me more money to try to fix what was done to me that what I originally paid. So, research your physician really well and word of mouth is the best advertising. If you do consider a LSL at least get a 2nd opinion from a ABCPS.
