I had been considering a face lift for some time because of my jowls and the sagging skin on my neck. My husband and I had been discussing this and collecting information, ads from different articles, etc., but the final decision was made after I talked (in person) to a friend of a friend who had the procedure 5 years ago and was so pleased (she was 62 when she had her surgery). She still looked great and was very pleased! That did it! I called Lifestyle Lift in Orange County, made an appointment for me and my husband for a consultation and a follow-up appointment with Dr. Lee. With my husband’s encouragement and support, I scheduled my surgery for two weeks later.
The office staff made sure I was very comfortable with the entire procedure. I especially appreciated the fact that I was put in a twilight sleep and not out completely since I have terrible reactions to anesthetic procedures. I was in and out of their facility within four hours.
No surgery is pleasant, but I have to say that this was the best experience I have had, and unfortunately, I have had several surgeries. There was minimal discomfort with maximum results! My friends are amazed with the results. Everyone has commented that I look younger, refreshed and don't have that 'taunt pulled look'. Some have even commented that I appear more comfortable and confident with myself. Thanks to Dr. Raymond Lee and his staff for their wonderful work and pleasant surroundings during what I expected to be an uncomfortable experience.
My recovery was quick with only two days of actual down time. Within one week I was entertaining my neighbors to show-off my new look. Even though there was some swelling with light bruising, I was so excited that I wanted to share with everyone what results could be obtained with little discomfort.
My husband and I want to thank Dr. Lee and his gifted and professional staff for their expertise and concern during this procedure. It is exciting for me to be able to share with others what I experienced.

Laguna Niguel CA Age at Procedure: 60 Submitted on 04-09-2013
My sister and I had talked for years about having the Lifestyle Lift done when I turned 60. We laughed about how we were aging and how we felt so much younger than we looked. Tragically, my sister died of ovarian cancer before we could share this experience. But, I know that she is pleased that I went ahead and was with me all the way.
A close friend and I went for or consultation together. The consultant was informative and encouraging. At the end of our consultation we both decide to have the procedure! We were so excited, like kids waiting for Christmas morning!
My appointment with my plastic surgeon, Dr. Lee, went wonderfully. He and the surgical tech staff, Jessica and Maria J., put me at ease. They were easy to talk to and anxious to answer all of my questions. I was provided with great detail on what to expect leading up to the procedure, during the procedure and after the procedure. Everyone was so positive and happy to be of help. I really liked Dr. Lee. He was honest and through. I felt very confident about him and the work that he was doing. I was so comfortable. I now had all the information I needed and I was more than ready to have the procedure done. I left with a "to do" list to prepare for the big day. Once home I came up with more questions. No problem. The surgical staff, Nate, Jessica and Maria were always available to assist me by phone.
The day of the procedure I was excited and a little nervous. But, once in the surgical suite with Jessica, I was relaxed and ready. No pain during the procedure. I remember some of the music that was playing and I remember saying, "I love that song". I was there but, not aware of what was being done! Everything went perfectly and to plan.
The next few days were a bit uncomfortable but, not bad. I followed all instructions given to me. The staff checked in, calling me to see how I was doing. I had sutures removed at 1 week. Wow! Wow! I looked great! More healing to do but, I looked so much younger. Couldn't keep me from smiling. Surgical Tech Jessica and I were "high 5 ing!"
I continued healing at home, following all instructions given to me by Dr. Lee and the surgical techs. At week 2, I returned to work. I wore my hair down. I usually wear it pulled back. Everyone was saying, your hair looks so good down. You should wear it down more often. Or, did you get new highlights in your hair? So funny, they knew I looked great but didn't know why!! Perfect! The change is subtle, natural and beautiful!
I had my follow up wit Dr. Lee at 40 days. He was as pleased as I am with the results. He is just great! Overall my experience was amazing! I would say "Do It!" to anyone considering the Lifestyle Lift. I feel so good about myself and I am taking better care now too. Wear sunscreen always!
I want to thanks the staff at Orange County location. Dr. Lee, surgical staff Jessica, Maria J, Rick and Nate, office staff Julie and office manager Monica. You are wonderful and amazing people. You truly care about your clients and it shows. Keeping working those miracles!!

I was one who said I would NEVER have a face lift. But when I saw pictures of my profile on vacation in May of 2012 I said I need to do something about my Turkey neck jowls and drooping eye lids. I talked to 2 ladies who had the Lift Style Lift with Dr. Raymond Lee and both were very pleased. I went for my free consultation with Maru who was very sweet and explained all about the procedures and costs and then introduced us to Dr. Lee. My husband and I were both impressed with Dr. Lee knowledge and experience. He assured me I would be very happy with the results. All of my closest girlfriends were very apprehensive. But when they saw my results they were shocked at how good I looked. All agreed I looked rested and so natural, and years younger. My friends at church, who didn't know I had the procedure, couldn't figure out why I looked different. A couple said I like your new hairdo. I merely thanked them. My husband was telling me daily how good I looked. Of course he is the most important person in my life and so that really made me feel good. I would highly recommend Dr. Raymond Lee to anyone contemplating this relatively non-invasive procedure with very little down time. Plus, the fact that you are not put under for the surgery is a big PLUS. I am 73 yrs old and I feel like I'm 60. I finally did something just for me. ... Read Complete Lifestyle Lift Review

After significant weight loss I really needed to do something about my neck and jowls. I had been referred by someone that had the procedure with Dr. Lee and really recommended him. The process was easy and the staff was wonderful talking to me about my options.
This was a easy decision for me. The procedure didn't take long and I was on my way to recovery. I really had discomfort the first week only then it pretty easy going from there.
The results have been great, I look and feel years younger. In fact I went in for my annual physicial and my Primary Care doctor couldn't get over how good (and natural)I looked and wanted to know all about it.
The Staff and Dr. were great through the entire procedure, precare and aftercare.
I have so many friend that are now interested checking this out for themselves. ... Read Complete Lifestyle Lift Review

The surgery went well and my recovery was quite fast. I never really experienced any pain to speak of. Discomfort - yes. It's great not having the flesh hanging over my face, the droopy eyelids and the webs going down my neck. And when I looked at the before and after pictures it was like father and son respectively. Great job, Dr. Paul.

I have had a dream for a long time and it was to have my face match my youthful spirit. I am a kid at heart and have generally looked younger then my age until I lost my job after 24 years & my Dad to Cancer when I was around 51 I am now 57 years old. Due to the stress and grief it accerated my aging process. I was divorced and was blessed enough to remarry my soul mate Tom who is 12 years younger then me. So here is this young handsome guy and this older women who wanted to look as young as she felt so I turned to the Orange County Life Style Lift Center. I went for a consultation with my daughter and met a wonderful consultant Maru Mercado. She answered all our questions and explained everything to us. I was so excited I had my procedure done on 12/18/2012. She has been so supportive, compassionate and kind before my procedure and currently during my healing process. She has called me and emailed me to check on how I am doing. I love her she is great! During my procedure I had a wonderful and experienced Dr. Raymond Lee. And during and after the procedure caring staff named Marlissa Atilano and Rick who removed my stitches. And just yesterday a kind gentleman named Nate called from the Center to ask how I was doing and answer any questions or concerns I am having. They have all calmed my nerves and made me feel important cared about and not to mention look years younger. I would highly recommend this Center and Staff if you are thinking about looking and feeling years younger. I told myself I have worked hard all my life since I was 18 years old I deserve this so I did it for myself and I recommend it to all of you. God bless Dr. Lee and all the staff at the Orange County Center! You are all talented, experienced and sensitive human beings! I wish you all a Happy & Healthy New Year! ...

Dr. Raymond Lee is phenomenal. He and his staff are very gentle and honestly concerned that your expectations are met. He is charming too! Yes, you will be in pain the next day or so...and yes, you will feel better. Like any surgery it causes discomfort and you will probably be shocked the next day. You will be amazed at how fast you will heal and the pain does go away. I was back at work in a week and no one noticed a lot of difference, which is exactly what I wanted. I noticed and have enjoyed wearing necklaces again. Two years later I am still very glad I had the procedure. You too will enjoy feeling great and people will no longer ask you if your tired when you are not. Enjoy Dr. Lee and his magic touch. He will change your life.
