Kind and helpful staff plus great results.
After losing my husband of 50 years I felt alone and old. We had often talked about getting rid of my double chin and jowls. After watching Lifestyle Lifts ads for many years I decided to go see how it was done. My consultant, Mary, led me through the process and two weeks later I had the procedure. Dr. Machida gave me the feeling of confidence and care that a skillful doctor should have with a patient. What a wonderful experience I had with this very caring and blessed physician. All my friends noticed something was different, some said I lost weight or said you look so good! What did you do? I feel younger and even after my birthday a month after my procedure turning 72 wasn't all that bad! I guess because I know I look younger than 72! My healing has been a little longer than I had anticipated, still have some numbness and swel...

Feeling Happy
My experience with Lifestyle Lift was terrific. The staff was friendly, efficient, and extremely processional. Right from the start when I met Gina until the end when Dr. Machida said goodbye, I felt that they truly cared about me. The procedure went just how the Dr. described and the recovery was good. I am a little impatient and I feel that the timeline for the recovery was a little short. However, the results were worth. All in all I would recommend this to my best friend and I feel that Dr. Machida is the best He is an artist and a dare good doctor. Thank you for making me feel happy.

So Glad I Had This Procedure Done
I was reluctant about going to LifeStyle Lift at first as I had read some of the not so favorable posts online. After taking a consult and meeting my surgeon all my fears anxiety subsided. Surgery was so easy and painless. I followed instructions to the letter and everything was explained and expected along he way. Healing was remarkably fast and aside from a little itching it was a breeze. The procedure itself took off 20 years of aging off my face. I did have Naturalyn which is a collagen fat transfer option to add fullness to your face. I recovered over the Christmas holiday and noone even noticed as my face was dramaticly changing. It is so subtle and so undetectable but the proof is in the before and after photos that I received on my 30 day follow-up visit. My doctor was extremely skilled and knowledgeable and made this an experien...

Best personal thing I have ever done at wonderful location with wonderful staff.
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....

Surprisingly Amazing Results
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 ...

Dr. Brian Machida understood exactly what I wanted as the end result.
I am very impressed with the staff, and especially with Dr. Brian Machida....He understood exactly the end result that I wanted to acquire. I am extremely pleased with the outcome, it's being a little more then one month since I had the procedure done, and I can see drastic results....It is a normal look.... If you are afraid or have any doubts about having this procedure....let me set you at ease...this was a very easy procedure, you just follow the instructions and everything will be fine....I strongly recommend Dr. Machida to anyone who is thinking about having this procedure.

Excellent Results
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 rela...

Satisfied, and then some.
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 thir...

I only experienced minimal pain and discomfort with the procedure, and the results are amazing. I feel younger and prettier and has bolstered my self confidence. My vote of confidence and a big congratulations to Dr. Brian Machida for a successful endeavor. I would strongly recommend him to do your procedure too, if you are contemplating to have one done.

Competent Medical Staff, Proficient Physician, and the Results - Unbelievable!
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 proced...

Great resultsbest Christmas present ever!
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 hel...

Excellent results, wish I had done this sooner
The staff and Doctor were very good about explaining the procedure and after care. They were polite and knowledgeable about the entire process. I felt little to no pain and the recovery was easy to go through... Dr. Machida did a better job than I had expected. He was very through and masterful at his craft. I recommend this procedure to anyone thinking about doing this. I got more than i expected and am very pleased with the entire procedure.

Happy with Results
I still cannot believe that I have undergone this procedure in that I never considered myself to be a cosmetic surgery type person. I was in the process of getting estimates to have my kitchen remodeled and all of a sudden I decided to go for a consultation at Lifestyle Lift. Guess I figured time is hurrying by and I'm tired of spending money on my house. So I went to the consultation and decided right then that I wanted to go ahead with it. In retrospect I probably should have done more research and am shocked at how impulsive the decision really was. Putting your face in someone's hands is a big deal. I see that more than before I did it. However, I did know a few people who had done it and I had read about Dr. Brian Machida in some online reviews. The procedure was performed approximately two weeks after my initial appt. and I ...

Painless procedure
I did my research before choosing Lifestyle Lift, I am glad I chose going this route. Overall I am satisfied with the end results. The only item I was not too thrilled with is the recovery. 4 months later and my face is still numb, which is to be expected but my face is still in pain and would have liked it if there were more follow up visits to ensure there are no unfavorable side effects. Should the pain and numbness continue beyond the 6 months that I was advised to expect, I will call and hope to get an appt to see the doctor. Again, the results are great...the recovery not so great.

Very caring and helpful staff with outstanding results
I had been thinking about the procedure for a couple of years and was very impressed with the adds in my Women's magazines and the advdertisement by Debbie Boone on the television. I am physically fit and have always had comments about my "nice skin", however I had a noticeable "whattle on my neck" and it was very unsightly- especially in a side view. I made the decision after going to my consultation in Palm Springs. I must admit that as the time came for my procedure I was very nervous. The staff was very supportive. Initially I was just going for the "Lifestyle Lift" but also decided on the "Brow Lift" when I noticed that my eyebrows were below my occipital ridge. Having two procedures did make recovery more involved. After a month I do have some numbness that is going away at my hairline. I would not suggest doing much fo...

this was so easy and really fantastic.
I was stunned by the results. I expected to look 50-75% better. I look 150% better. no more droopy eyes and no more turkey neck both caused by thyroid disease. The procedure was simple,the pain was minimal-more discomfort than pain and the results were fantastic. They explained step by step what they would be doing and did it gently. I wish i had done this years ago. It was worth it at twice the cost. I cannot say thank you enough.

very very happy with results
I am so glad I found out about lifestyle lift. The staff were great made me feel confident having had the procedure. Doctor Machida is a very great doctor and being very educated is what I looked for when finding a place to have lazer done on my face no question I would highly recommend same place and doctor. I have had many people question what I have been using on my face because they say I look like I have less winkles and I tell them right away I went to Lifestyle Lift. I called a lot of places before I found Lifestyle Lift and those places could not give answers that I requested. I am very glad I found Lifestyle Lift and a great doctor.

Dr. Machida Rocks!!!!
From the time of my first consultation with Dr. Machida to the end result was amazing. Dr. Machida took his time to work me thru the steps of the procedure and the look I could achieve. Little did I know that Dr. Machida is tops in his field in the Inland Empire. This made me want to do the procedure even more. Recovery was quicker than I expected and scars (very small) are healing rapidly faster than I thought they would. I am so happy that I had the Lifestyle Lift done and I am thrilled with my final results. Amazing!!!! Since I am turning 50 this year,this makes me look years younger and people say I looked rested and refreshed. And they really didn't know that I had anything done. But I know!!! Thanks again Dr. Machida and the Lifestyle Lift staff for a great experience. You Rock! And oh, yes, I would do it again! ...
