In 2007, my husband, Ray, lost his kidneys to an auto immune disease, followed by dialysis and then a kidney transplant. A virus started attacking his new kidney. Then in December of 2012, my husband had 4 strokes and seizures, followed by more strokes, seizures and blood clots and his health kept on a downward spiral. He passed away in June of 2013.
In June of 2010, I lost my precious Grandson Trevor to a horrific accident. He was only 11 years old and could light up any room with his sparkling personality.
Since then I lost 3 siblings, a sister and 2 brothers.
All of these losses took a toll on me and my face became the face of a woman 20 years older than I felt inside.
Lifestyle lift has changed my appearance to the age I feel inside! People say "You look really good! What have you done?"

Bend OR Age at Procedure: 65 Submitted on 05-31-2013
First let me say that I look better, no question about that.
Let me begin with my evaluation with the initial meeting with the LSL representative in Portland, Or. In that consultation it was explained to me that there would be two "pinnings" made under my chin to pull up and resecure the muscle directly under my chin. This was the motivating reason for me to get the LSL...getting rid of that hanging area under my chin. I also had my eyes done and some injections around my mouth.
At the 6 week consultation with Dr. Santos I asked why he made only one incision under my chin rather than the two that had been explained by the representative. At my question he paused, and then answered as he pointed to several areas of this own neck that, "I could have done it here, or here, or here, or here, but I thought this would be best". Then, as he studied my face he asked if I had lost any weight. I had lost about 10 pounds, 6 pounds prior to surgery thru Jenny Craig, and 3 pounds the week after surgery. I am not at all sure what prompted the question about weight loss, but I would love to know.
Again, let me say that I look better. But I'm not completely sure that I received the best procedure. With that there will always be some disappointment.

Seattle WA Age at Procedure: 53 Submitted on 01-10-2013
I've heard about the lifestyle for a couple years. And like most people would think that it is a major plastic surgery. But after talking with wonderful staff at the Bellevue location, and having a appointment with Doctor Maurice, it was my turn. I was so excited I never felt nervous or scared, I could not have been in better hands. I even had the doctor singing for me during the procedure. Then before I knew It I was done and out back home. And a couple weeks later I couldn't get enough of looking at myself in the mirror. I had to pinch myself to understand that it was really my face, I am so pleased with the out come and I love everybody at lifestyle. They are a wonderful team ,it feels like I've known them forever, and they are very much my friends now. I would highly recommend this procedure for anybody who wants to turn the clock a little backwards. I love my lifestyle lift and the entire staff, and most of all those magic hands of Doctor Maurice. What a wonderful man, open and easy to talk to, he makes me feel special and he always takes his time to explain everything and more that I wanted to know.
Thank you Life style! You made my life that much better. ... READ MORE»
Hayden ID Age at Procedure: 64 Submitted on 12-20-2012
As I have aged I just wanted to be the best me I can be inside and out. Lifestyle lift has given me this opportunity to be the best on the out side I can be. It took a lot of mental push from me to me to make the call. I am so happy I did. The proceedure was fast and the recover time was over before you knew it, with positive results. The Doctor was so positive and reassuring and the staff professional and sensitive to your needs. Most important is that I look on the outside like I feel on the inside. My husband was my biggest supporter. I will always be glad I made the call. ... READ MORE»

My husband was fabulous through this experience. He made an excel spread sheet with medications, dosage and timing for before and after the surgery. He was NOT prepared for the first day. By taking a picture of daily improvements I never experienced depression or tears. I went from NOT telling anyone to being proud and open about my lifestyle lift and change. Thank you Dr Peter Maurice. Seattle ... READ MORE»

Dr. Santos was awesome! I felt a little nervous right before surgery, but he put me at ease immediately addressing my concern for bleeding and infection. I trusted him and got a fabulous result. I could feel him working on me, but it was not painful. The surgery time seemed much less than the 4 hours allotted. I may have fallen asleep during that time. I had a nurse stay wth me in my hotel room for 3 days and she administered my medications and icing. By the third day, I took myself off the pain preion as I no longer needed it. By the end of the third week, swelling and bruising became invisible. After 5 days I began visiting the beautiful Bellevue area: art gallery, doll museum, botanical garden, and shopping districts. Every day I was healing and becoming prettier. My skin tone is more even and Dr. Santos achieved great symmetry. I do look years younger and my brow lift stitched area is all that remains to be healed after one month. ... READ MORE»

LIFESTYLE LIFT IN BELLEVUE
A plastic surgeon, not the diamond
Surely must be a girl’s best friend.
He can beautify her looks with a scalpel,
The skill difficult to comprehend.
So if one day a stranger’s reflection
Will appear in your mirror’s view,
For Lifestyle Lift in Bellevue.
Once you’re inside Bellevue Clinic
A setting worthy of a king,
You’ll be treated like a princess;
They’ll say: “Dear, you won’t feel a thing.”
As you’ll drift into oblivion,
Music will softly fill the air,
And Dr Santos with his skilful hand
Will sculpt your face with supreme care.
With supreme care and great precision,
Step by step, and by the book,
He will assure that each incision
Will beautify your new look.
Then invisible seams you’ll receive
Past one hour of laboring.
I wonder if Dr. Santos moonlights
For City’s 1st Class Tailoring.
The next three days you will resemble
A pumpkin at a Country Fair,
Worthy of 1st prize for its great size.
Amusing sight; I must declare.
A nip, tuck, lift, laser, liposuction,
Have it all if you saved your dough.
I promise, you’ll be dissected delicately,
‘Cause Dr Santos is the Pro.
Dr Santos, I’d like to tell you,
You chose well your lifetime role;
With nearly painless intervention
You matched my face to my young soul.
To Dr David Santos with Gratitude
I'd like to add that the swelling in first couple of days was substantial but well worth it. I was back at work in 3 weeks with only a little bruising on my neck easily covered by a scarf. I can see MY face again, and I am very happy I decided to go for it.
