I had my neck and upper eyes done. Before I looked saggy and tired. Now I look bright, awake and younger. I have no cons, the surgery was well worth it. The entire staff was so sweet and helpfull. They kept my husband well informed before, during and after the surgery. My niece told my husband that I look like her sister instead of her Aunt.
Dr. Machida made me feel comfortable and answered all my questions. All of the staff, including phone calls and follow up, were so sweet and helpfull. I never had to wait more than a few minutes in their comfortable waiting room. Only good things to say about Inland, Ontario Mills center in California.
Within a week after surgery I could see the changes. By the second week I was out visiting and going about my normal duties. My friends were amazed at how much younger I looked.

Grand Terrace CA Age at Procedure:60 Michele had a Lifestyle Lift w/ upper and lower eyelids Posted 02-18-2013
I still cannot believe that I have undergone this procedure in that I never considered myself to be a cosmetic surgery type person. I was in the process of getting estimates to have my kitchen remodeled and all of a sudden I decided to go for a consultation at Lifestyle Lift. Guess I figured time is hurrying by and I'm tired of spending money on my house. So I went to the consultation and decided right then that I wanted to go ahead with it.
In retrospect I probably should have done more research and am shocked at how impulsive the decision really was. Putting your face in someone's hands is a big deal. I see that more than before I did it. However, I did know a few people who had done it and I had read about Dr. Brian Machida in some online reviews. The procedure was performed approximately two weeks after my initial appt. and I specifically asked for Dr. Machida. His education, experience and demeanor made me feel confident that he knew what he was doing. More than ever I am convinced he is an extremely talented and dedicated surgeon.
The initial procedure went smoothly and I healed up fast. Returning to work was not an issue because I retired last year. Nevertheless, I was out and about within a week but there was still slight bruising that was healing.
Approximately six months after the initial procedure, there were a few areas that I was not completely happy withspecifically these little pockets of fat next to my mouth. No one seemed to see it but me...and Dr.Machida. He agreed that it could look better. I went in and he basically did the procedure again except for my neck and eyes but this time the results are exactly what I had hoped for. It's only been like three and a half weeks but it really looks great!! I was much happier with the second procedure and I especially appreciated how enthusiastic Dr. Machida was about doing it again. I didn't feel like I was being unrealistic in my expectations and he assured me that my concerns could and would be addressed.
I am a little reluctant to urge others to do it because individuals all heal differently and everyone's financial situation is different. But overall, I am so glad I did it. I probably spend way too much time looking in the mirror now, but it still kind of takes me by surprise at a store trying on a hat or something silly. I get a little thrill at how pretty my face looks to me. It seems to look BETTER than when I was in college. It isn't that I look younger than many years ago but my chin and throat have a line and definition that I have never had. I feel like my face is more feminine now. For me, it goes deep and caused a shift in how I feel about myself.
So basically, I can only speak to my experience with Dr. Machida and his assistant Kathy. They were wonderful and it's very odd to be awake during the procedure, but it was ok and I always felt like I was in good hands.
Good luck in your decision. I am so happy I did it.

I did my research before choosing Lifestyle Lift, I am glad I chose going this route. Overall I am satisfied with the end results. The only item I was not too thrilled with is the recovery. 4 months later and my face is still numb, which is to be expected but my face is still in pain and would have liked it if there were more follow up visits to ensure there are no unfavorable side effects. Should the pain and numbness continue beyond the 6 months that I was advised to expect, I will call and hope to get an appt to see the doctor. Again, the results are great...the recovery not so great. ...Read Complete Lifestyle Lift Review
Calimesa CA Age at Procedure:62 Carolyn had Lifestyle Lift facial and neck firming procedures w/ brow lift Posted 01-30-2013
I had been thinking about the procedure for a couple of years and was very impressed with the adds in my Women's magazines and the advdertisement by Debbie Boone on the television. I am physically fit and have always had comments about my "nice skin", however I had a noticeable "whattle on my neck" and it was very unsightly- especially in a side view.
I made the decision after going to my consultation in Palm Springs. I must admit that as the time came for my procedure I was very nervous. The staff was very supportive. Initially I was just going for the "Lifestyle Lift" but also decided on the "Brow Lift" when I noticed that my eyebrows were below my occipital ridge.
Having two procedures did make recovery more involved. After a month I do have some numbness that is going away at my hairline. I would not suggest doing much for the first two weeks. There was a lot of bruising from the brow lift. Chewing is difficult the first week. Every day got better.
I am leaving for the British Isles in a couple of days. I look refreshed and noticeably younger- comparable to pictures of me taken in my 40"s. I have a 45TH class reunion that is coming up in a month. I have always attended these with my twin sister. She does not want us to go because she says I look much better and younger than she does. Instead she said. "Wait until the next one, when I will have had my Lifestyle Lift." That tells it all....Read Complete Lifestyle Lift Review
