If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Want to have a revolutionary facelift that can take up to ten years off in just one hour? Sound good, right?
Well, this procedure was very popular for a while but then this happened:
- The Lifestyle Lift company was fined by the Attorney General of New York for astroturfing – basically posting false glowing reviews of the procedures on various websites.
- The Lifestyle Lift company was involved in multiple alleged malpractice lawsuits in the state of Florida.
- Lifestyle Lift was the subject of an eight-part mini-series by the CBS affiliate in Atlanta featuring three dissatisfied Lifestyle Lift patients, and former employees and their complaints against the company.
- Lifestyle Lift went bankrupt and liquidated in 2015.
Here is my take: the procedure was not the “revolutionary” procedure that it was advertised to be. In fact, it was the exact opposite. It was a mini-facelift (S-Lift) that only works for people who have minimal aging. In addition, the doctors who worked for the company weren’t the best doctors in town. In fact, they were the ones who needed extra work and so went to this bargain basement, “doc-in-a-box” business to make extra money.
For these reasons, the Lifestyle Lift is on my Holistic Beauty Blacklist.
