Lifestyle Lift, the self-proclaimed largest group of facial plastic surgeons in the country, is currently under investigation by the State of Florida. although the popular infomercial advertisement promises less invasive and less expensive face lifts, patient experiences have not been as satisfying. Many of the 68 patients that filed complaints over the past two years with Florida’s Attorney General’s office have expressed their displeasure and are accusing the company of deceptive trade practices. in fact, many of them went under the knife with no noticeable changes at all.
“Patient goals are very important to us at our practice,” says Dr. Eichenberg of Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center. “We work closely to identify each patient’s unique goals and plan a surgery that addresses them directly to ensure the best results.”
This investigation echoes what the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery has been working hard to convey to prospective surgery patients: in order to get the results, you should work with a board certified plastic surgeon with a solid reputation in the field. Procedures are at an all time low across the board because of advancements in science and technology so you should take advantage of this time.
“Aside from slight variations in price, generally all prospective patients pay the same amount for comparable procedures,” says Dr. Eichenberg. “If you’re concerned about the price, it is better to consider payment plans than to choose a surgeon offering a deceivingly low price.”
Although the investigation found that some patients did leave Lifestyle Lift happy with their results, it’s disturbing when so many people come forward with complaints.
