In 2007 I had a gastric bypass. I went from a size 18W to a 4-6. Problem is, my face didn't make the same journey I did. Even though I had lost an amazing amount of weight, my self esteem was very low. When I looked in the mirror all I saw were my flaws and an old woman staring back at me.
The Cincinnati Ohio office was an amazing group of people! From the consult to the after photo's I felt comfortable and they are all so wonderful that they feel like friends.
The proceedure went well and I stayed in a near by hotel the night after because my drive home was over an hour. I slept well and the next day I went home. If you have ever seen a plastic surgury before and after on a reality TV show, there is a reason they hide the mirrors! As with any surgury you will have some swelling and to keep looking at it and dwelling on it will just be discouraging. I followed all the directions and watched everything closely. Within two weeks I felt and looked a lot better. I still had some swelling but I was back to work as an EMT. I had no problems lifting and moving patients.
Every week I saw improvement and at my 8 wees follow up appointment and after shots. Dr. Smyth told me that I will continue to see improvement for another 8 weeks. I can't imagine how it could get better!
I am very excited about my decision to make a change, it has improved my self esteem and I find myself doing things and going places I wouldn't have in the past. I have stopped looking at my feet and started looking people in the eye. ... READ MORE»
Hamilton OH Age at Procedure: 58 Posted on 11-05-2013
I had the lifestyle lift in May and it is now September. Each month I have seen more and more improvement. I look years younger and feel so much more confident about my looks. I also had the laser done in July and my skin looks and feel so smooth-hardly any age spots left and the scars are not really noticeable. I had been obese all of my adult life. I finally got the weight off and kept it off for several months and these procedures were a gift to myself for my hard work. It was worth every penny. THe staff made me feel right at home, and answered every question. I don't regret it at all! Thank you Dr. Smyth and staff. You are the best! ... READ MORE»
San Antonio TX Age at Procedure: 58 Posted on 11-05-2013
From the moment my husband and I walked through their doors for our free consult through today (2 weeks after surgery), every visit and procedure has been stellar with LifeStyle Lift. This is one of the best decisions I have ever made.
I am 58 years old and recently lost 91 pounds. I also had 2 strokes within the last 12 months. The sagging skin after the weight loss and my face drooping a little after the strokes was my motivation to have my face done. Also, I have been on television with my own segment for the past 7 years-it was becoming increasingly difficult to hide the changes in my appearance.
The staff at the front desk were all very friendly and put my mind at ease every time we came in contact with them. The entire place was clean, well organized and highly professional. LeAnne, the head nurse, left us in a room to watch a video that explained what they do and how they do it. Then, she came back in when it was over and explained the entire process, what costs were involved with each procedure and answered any of our questions.
None of the people we talked to were pushy or vague; they explained the facts in a professional and thorough manner and then we left to talk about the decision to proceed. Two weeks later, we paid for the procedures in full (but they also offered financing options )and scheduled our appointment to talk with the doctor.
Dr. Taylor eased our minds completely as he explained the procedure and we had read up on his background so we were good to go. My greatest concern was that I would see knives and needles-that never happened at all.
Paula, my nurse that day, put me at ease and had great compassion for my concerns-she talked to me and put on some soft music while I waited for the meds to kick in. The meds they gave me took effect about 20 minutes after I took them and I don't remember anything that happened until I was going home.
I had my upper and lower eyes done, my lower face and my neck lypo'd, my earlobes, my face resurfaced and the fat from my neck injected into the folds by my nose on my face.
My recovery has been outstanding. I took the hydrocodone for only 3 days and then began taking Tylenol during the day and Tylenol PM at night. My husband rented a fully electric recliner so I could sleep on my back as they suggested and it worked perfectly. I did everything they told me to do to the letter and because of this, I know I have healed faster and more painlessly!
They truly have their ducks all in a row and the entire process is friendly, quick and professional in every way. I am so pleased with LifeStyle Lift, the entire staff, Dr. Taylor, LeAnne and Paula.
I am singing the praises of this wonderful alternative to the old fashioned way of having these procedures done with general anesthesia and the risks you take of germs and the high cost of a hospital to everyone I know. My procedures took about 6 hours and then I went home! Thank you for all at LifeStyle Lift for your care and concern and making me feel like family instead of just another patient. ... READ MORE»
