Seeing the Debbie Boone Lifestyle Lift commercial on TV, at a time of personaly depressing events, prompted me to say "Why Not" and decided to go ahead with the Lift and eyelids. I am exsatic that I went through with it, as the results at 8 weeks are much better than I expected. I sensed nothing of the surgery except the bandages afterward. Pain was minimal on the 2nd day and virtually none after that. Swelling and brusing were present the first week and disipated over the next 2 weeks. After 14 days I had my new face ang returned to work. I will never regret making the decision to drop 20 years off my appearance.(as told to me by friends and family members. ... READ MORE»
Eastvale CA Age at Procedure: 62 Submitted on 11-05-2013
I have wanted to have a surgery like this for years but was never able to afford it. When I would look in the mirror all I saw was a sagging chin and jowls. I would always avoid picture taking, especially profile pictures.
I got an email from LL and started looking at the before and after pictures and I was amazed. Before I knew it I was having a live chat and ended up the next day at a consultation. Monica did my consult. She was my age so I felt very comfortable with her because she could relate better than someone thirty or so years younger.
I scheduled with Dr Machita and he was great!
The entire experience was not what I had imagined. Felt nothing during procedure( they use a local...yeah). and total recover time was about 2 to 3 weeks but after 10 days I was out and about.
I would recommend this procedure to anyone thinking of having plastic surgery. The whole experience was positive for me, and the results is just amazing. I am ready for the camera now.....cheese!! ... READ MORE»

Arcadia CA Age at Procedure: 60 Submitted on 08-27-2013
Although I have to say that the experience of being awake during the procedure was a bit creepy and scary, the reason I chose a Lifestyle Lift is for that very reason - I didn't want to take the risk of general anesthetic. The procedure was a bit more brutal than I thought it would be, but it was painless and fairly quick. I think it took an hour or maybe a bit more. I'm glad I had someone stay with me the first night because I couldn't do much on my own - could barely get a spoon in my mouth so soft foods were in order for the first week. There was more swelling and bruising than I expected but fool that I am, I didn't take the Arnica before and after the procedure. Take that. The swelling and bruising were down enough that on day 12 I got on a plane and went on a trip. After three weeks I was able to go out and friends and relatives didn't notice anything strange about me. After four weeks I am still swollen but it's not noticeable at all. I feel like I have a strap from ear to ear under my chin, but that feeling gets less and less weekly. I'm very happy with the results. I look like the person I remember being and feel great about myself. ... READ MORE»
Hesperia CA Age at Procedure: 62 Submitted on 08-27-2013
I did enough research to feel confident that I wanted both the chin lift and the lower eyes done. Machida answered my questions. I thoroughly read all the instructions and purchased all of the meds prescribed, including the homeopathic ones. It was convenient to stay at the hotel the night before and the night after surgery. I was admitted to their facility early, and was seated in something like a dental chair. The assistant doled out several of the prescribed meds, and I quickly passed out (didn't even feel the shots.) When I awoke, they were wrapping my head. There was no pain, but a little dizziness, and they wheeled me over to my room. My face and eyes were hot (I needed to sleep with cold packs for three days.) I returned the following day after surgery for the check-up. Then, more questions were answered, and I drove home. The third day, the swelling was at its peak. My neck and eyes were very swollen. The next appointment was a week later. A hematoma on the side of my neck (quite common) had to be drained. Maria was very gentle and kind removing the stitches. Five weeks out, I still have very slight swelling under the eyes. I can really see the difference. My jowls are gone, my side-view has a horizontal chin rather than a diagonal one, and the eye bags are gone, along with some of the wrinkles that I didn't even expect. These procedures were totally worth it to me. My husband says I look the same, but my photos say otherwise. The guy who usually works out next to me in gym class said, "You look prettier. How'd you do that?" ... READ MORE»

San Dimas CA Age at Procedure: 57 Submitted on 05-03-2013
I am so happy that I did this! The staff at the Ontario (Inland Empire)facility are all highly professional and were concerned for my mental and physical state before, during, and after the procedure. Dr. Brian Machida spent time with me prior to the procedure to insure that I was fully informed on what would happen, discussed the results I should expect, and addressed my questions and concerns thoroughly and patiently. I was fully prepared and knew what to expect prior to the procedure. Like any normal person, I was nervous on the big day but when I arrived at the center, the medical staff took care of me. Dr. Machida entered the room and made sure I was calm and ready and told me once again how he would proceed. I had full confidence in Dr. Machida and the staff members and was calm and relaxed before, during, and after the procedure; I never had any doubt whatsoever! The results - life changing! As a business executive, I didn't want to become "aged out", still a real situation for women. I can walk into any situation now without that feeling that I am viewed as "a little older." I look refreshed and vital and with that demon off my back, that little chick in my competitive edge is gone! Now I walk into the room and my body language states "I'm here!" If you are thinking about having this procedure - do it!!! I promise you won't regret it! ... READ MORE»
Glendora CA Age at Procedure: 64 Submitted on 04-05-2013
I was afraid of every aspect of this procedure but I have two friends who'd had the Lifestyle Lift with amazing results so I decided to at least go for a consultationafter all it was free and there was no committment.
Two days after a very informative and reassuring consultation I scheduled a surgery datestill a bit fearful but definitely ready to look and feel better about myself. At 64 going on 65 I felt I was looking pretty wretched.
I had both the lift and the peel. For the next few days I was very, very swollen and red-facedjust as expected. I took the Vicodin as instructed and don't remember any pain at all. The only discomfort I did have was mild and due to the skin peel, my face felt like I had a bad sunburn but a few bags of frozen peas took care of that.
I recommend a caretaker for the first couple of days for help with the bandages, icepacks, etc. My husband took time off work to help out and I was very glad he did.
Honestly, the worst part of the recovery for me was having to sleep propped up for the first few days, then on my back for the next couple of weeks and not being able to leave the house for a week without scaring small children.
However......once the sutures were removed on day seven I was out and about and resuming normal activities. I was still moderately bruised and swollen but already seeing a much younger looking faceand realizing that the first seven days of "inconvenience" was going to be a very small price to pay for my new look.
By the second week I was really looking good, was showing myself off to friends and family and knew I was going to be extremely happy with the end result.
It's now week five and I look great! I still have a hint of swelling and bruising here and there but my youthful neck and jawline are back, my fine lines are gone and my skin is glowingexactly what I'd hoped and paid for.
This was the best Christmas present EVER!!
Thank you Mary, our beautiful and knowledgeable consultant. Thank you Dr. Machida, my super surgeon. And thanks to all the wonderfully caring staff at the Ontario Lifestyle Lift office:)
