The Alternative to Lifestyle Lift

Facelift in Washington DC

In March 2015, the popular plastic surgery company Lifestyle Lift closed its doors and filed for bankruptcy. This follows the 2008 lawsuit in which Lifestyle Lift was forced to pay $300,000 in a settlement for claims that the company was posting fake reviews on Lifestyle Lift became known in 2001 for advertising surgery centers that would provide a quick, one hour long, non-invasive facelift treatment.

Other than the company’s mishandling of money, the downfall of the company can most likely be attributed to its negative online image. RealSelf founder Tom Seery reported that Lifestyle Lift had only a 61 percent positive rating on the site, whereas private plastic surgeons typically yield an 89 percent positive rating for facelift procedures. So if it’s not an ineffective treatment that put people off, what was it?

Most likely it was the impersonal nature of the company itself. Patients looking for plastic surgery desire personalized attention and wish to form bonds with their doctors and their staff. The best surgery results come from highly trained doctors who fully understand the wishes of their patients.

Lifestyle Lift closing simply proves that a small price tag shouldn’t be the deciding factor when looking for a plastic surgeon. Nothing can replace the attention, communication, understanding, and support that is gained from choosing a personal plastic surgery practice – not even a few more dollar bills in your pocket.
