I was doing volunteer work with hospice patients and I kept hearing, "Are you sad today?", What's wrong? Are we having a bad day? Why are you so upset?" I wasn't feeling any of those emotions or state of mind but that is what the 'world' was seeing. It was extremely confusing and I had never had such communications as I am very happy in life, spiritual and love living...so why was I hearing this? Taking a long look in the mirror, I began to realize that the reality of skin is not the reality of my heart or soul. Then I saw the ads on TV, Debby Boone is credible to me and I gave a call, but my spiritual side took over and I felt vanity taking over, I waited a year! Now I see what a waste that was.
I've never felt that appearances were that important and then it dawned on me. I spoke with a rep again met with Dr. Malcom Paul who listened carefully to my concerns, understood my confusion, and was moved when I told him about the person who said that my face looked so sad that I made him want to cry! Dr. Paul is kind, caring and special, he even told me about his childhood, how he almost died and that is why he became a doctor. He wanted to help others. I never had a doctor open up like that and it really moved me! Since then my care with Dr. Paul has been phenomenal. He even encouraged me with my career and offered suggestions and always takes time with my questions. He is and always will be my "Aging with Grace" doctor and I really am thankful for having him in my life. I recommend him to all of you who are wondering what to do with this confusion of aging. Call and ask to see Dr. Malcom Paul! ... READ MORE»
Chicago IL Age at Procedure: 68 Submitted on 07-30-2013
Before committing to Dr Keni I consulted other practitioners in Chicago, including one very pricey one at Water Tower Place, but was never comfortable with the general lack of genuine caring and the constant emphasis on my ability to pay the fees. I am an licensed esthetician and Dr Keni was later recommended to me by my client, who was very pleased with her facial results at Lifestyle Lift. My husband and I made an appointment and were made very comfortable. All questions and concerns were competently and carefully answered, what to expect was outlined in detail, preparation for the procedures left nothing in doubt, and the charges to expect were professionally presented. My husband was however shocked by my appearance just after the surgery. Although appearances improved quickly, he could have been better advised on what he would see. His constant caring for my healing for the week or two after was crucial. I would not recommend these procedures to anyone unless such follow up care is assured at home. We later came by the office, unannounced,with needs and questions, and were always welcomed and taken good care of. Healing was rapid and trouble free as every eventuality had been forseen and provided for by Dr Keni and Staff, who always showed sincere concern for our well being. I recommend Dr Keni and his fine staff without reservation.

Union Grove WI Age at Procedure: 56 Submitted on 07-30-2013
The LifeStyleLift was a procedure I was contemplating for 3 years. I researched and viewed various procedures. I chose the LifeStyleLift procedure after much though, met with a consultant and scheduled my date. I had it done in Downer's Grove, Illiniose by Dr. Jay Keni.
I was set up in a hotel for three days (two nights). I arrived the day before, met with the doctor the following day of the procedure and left for home the next day.
I found the staff very out going and easy to converse with. Dr. Keni appeared confident and I followed through.
I must admit; the first few days afterward I was a little alarmed at what I saw in the mirror. It was scary for me because I had swelling, much bruising from the face down to my lower neck area and felt like there was a tight noose around my neck. I had difficulty chewing as it caused alot of pain the first 4 days but after talking with the doctor and the staff I was reassured that this was normal after effects from the surgery.
I am now a month post-op and all of the swelling is gone except for some munching under my chin where an incision was made to lipo suction the fat from my neck. Everyday it appears to resolve and I expect, I hope that in a week or two that it completely resides. There is redness around the area and neck as well but again, everyday there is improvement.
I have been told that I look many yrs younger and fresher as I also had laser done to my face. I can see my jawline! I no longer have a "turtle neck" and I am pleased. Everything went according to what I was told and expected. Again, I am just waiting for the rest of the bunching under the chin area to go away as this is still a concern for me. If not, then I will call and have a cortisone injection after a month, but will wait it out.
My worse experience was staying at the hotel and having the shuttle bus transport me back and forth from the clinic a few times immediately afterwards because the shuttle was for "everyone" staying at the hotel with other agendas. I felt self-conscious when people would stare and whisper. But I pulled up my Big Girl pants and went with the flow......they probably thought I was a trauma patient somewhere....who knows. I was wrapped in gauze and had thick greasy gel on my face...what a sight, huh? And I went alone! But I got it done and I am happy I did. I would do it again and I do reccommend this for anyone who wants to look younger and regain their personal self-esteem while looking in the mirror and feeling/being a better "you." I am healthy and feel young at 56 of age but my appearnace in the mirror prior to the procedure burst my bubble. Vanity? Yes. But I did it for me. I am a single woman after a divorce and want to start dating again. This had given me the courage, the incentive to say "Yes, I am back."
I love Dr. Keni's work. Precision. Precision!

I worked with consultant Kathleen Pistell in Brookfield, WI. She thoroughly explained the procedure and what to expect during and after surgery. She made the arraignments for my procedure on August 21, 2012 by Dr. Jay Keni in Downers Grove IL I met with Dr. Keni the morning of the procedure and he explained in detail everything that would happen. The staff was professional and went out of their way to make sure I felt comfortable. When I returned home to Jacksonville, FL I notice a couple sutures were still in one of my incisions. The staff in Downers Grove made arraignments for me to have them removed at the Lifestyle Lift center in Jacksonville. Thanks everyone for a job well done. ... READ MORE»

I was truly happy with every aspect of my experience, from the time I called to get my consultation until today 3 months later. I am in the medical field and have had prior minor procedures done at hospitals, the prep I received at lifestyle was way more intense and thorough than any I received before. The staff ...all of them were so friendly and knowledgeable and professional I might add. I had my eyes and face lifted and jowls removed ...they bothered me the most, and now 3 months later I am all healed, I just feel better ... It made me more "awake" and fresh ... READ MORE»
West Branch MI Age at Procedure: 66 Submitted on 07-10-2013
After watching and pondering if Life Style Lift was for me I made the call and made an appointment. The staff in Downers Grove,Ill. were warm, helpful and walked me through the whole process. I was impressed with Dr. Keni and how relaxed he made me feel. He told me he had done a L.S.L. on his mother and she was very pleased. I said I'd like it if he would treat me like his mom because than I would know he would take good care of me. My daughter and I decided to go to lunch and digest the process. Everyone was very understanding. We came back a short time later and I made my appointment. Waiting the couple weeks was difficult in that I had made the decision and wish I had made it sooner. It did give me time to collect the things I would need for my care before and after at home.
The big day arrived and my husband delivered me to Dr. Keni. Again I was so impressed by his gentleness, explanation of the process and answered my last few questions. I had decided to have the L.S.L. and laser treatment. I slept through the whole process and looked like I had been in a fight when I looked in a mirror but was so excited to have it all done. I had very little pain afterward and just two minor bouts of nausea.The ice packs felt wonderful.
I am only two weeks out from my procedure, had my stitches out today. I have been hiding myself to see who might notice. My husband is so happy for me,he says I look like his arm candy again. I can't believe my turkey neck is gone and I actually have a chin and firm neck again. I still have some swelling around my ears and neck and hard area's, my skin looks so fresh and smooth. I look at the before and after pic's and can't believe the change. I know that because of the caring staff at the L.S.L. in Downers Grove I am a new and improved me. ... READ MORE»

Dr. Keni is wonderful. His warm, caring manner put me instantly at ease. I had the lift and eye procedures on 3 June and was able to attend my class reunion on the 15th. I am very pleased with my results and how quickly I healed. I would highly recommend him to all my friends. Stacy Huth provided my pre-surgery care. I could not have asked for anyone more competent and caring, answering all my questions. Maria Moreno provided my post surgery care and again, she exceeded all my expectations. These three individuals really care about their patients. I have no doubt every doctor and nurse on this staff is excellent and routinely provide this level of care and support. Downers Grove has a world class facility. Modern, pleasant and extremely clean. The entire staff is very patient-friendly. ... READ MORE»

Two years ago my picture had been taken from my right side as I stood at attention in a Color Guard along with two of my retired military buddies. It was this picture that I noticed the difference in our chins. Their jaws formed a 90-degree angle with their necks. Mine formed a 45-degree angle, looking like a rooster's wattle. Then, perhaps a year later, I was watching a TV commercial that showed someone with a neck like mine having a procedure done that gave them a neck line like I wanted. I Goggled "neck lifts" and found some local Plastic Surgeons that performed a liposuction-type of neck lift. My doctor referred me to HMO's plastic surgeon who said my neck wasn't fat, it was just too much skin. She gave me a price estimate for her doing the neck lift at the local hospital at cost. It was expensive. Then I saw that TV commercial again and decided to call their 800 number.
I made an appointment for a free consultation, and that's when my expectations started to form. What was I in for, what was the experience going to be like? I could only imagine, but then I headed for my first appointment, and that's when my expectations collided with reality!!
I'll let the cat out of the bag, because anyone looking into a Lifestyle Life procedure is going to have the same apprehension, the same concerns.
Let me tell now, not matter what your expectation are they're simply not going to be met. They'll be exceeded!! There's no way you can imagine how exceptional the Lifestyle Lift experience is going to be.
(Note: My professional background was in producing Corporate video productions as well as managing corporate reorganizations and process improvements. It is with this background that I was as critical in my observations as I could be in assessing the Lifestyle Lift process.) Everything about the Lifestyle Lift experience reflected a professional, competent, efficient and effective way of doing everything. I continuously looked for any step that could be done better, and I didn't encounter a single process that wasn't already being done the best way imaginable.
My expectation kept being so far exceeded that I had to keep reminding myself it was real, normal, and not staged for my benefit. The consultation was a one-on-one explanation of the entire process, including an outstanding video production detailing the process. The procedure itself was amazing. My doctor, Dr. Malcolm Paul, makes TV's Dr. Kildare look like an intern.
BTW, my Lifestyle Lift neck and face procedure cost 25% less than my other estimate for a neck life only procedure.
I'm rating my experience "5 Amazing" because there was no "6 Beyond Amazing" option. ... READ MORE»

My advise is not to put off getting this procedure done. This has helped my self esteem and added confidence to my life. The staff was more than helpful and paid personal attention to me. The procedure was fast with minimal recovery and I am so happy to see the results. Even the follow visits were conducted very professionally. Overall, I am pleased with the outcome and would highly recommend this experience.
Stop playing in the mirror and pick up the phone. Go see what this is all about and do it. You will be a changed person and everyone will know something has changed. No need to tell them what - only that your life is changed for the better. ... READ MORE»
