Lifestyle Lift is a cosmetic surgery COMPANY that markets a plastic surgery technique to any medical doctor to enhance its revenue stream. The person that does the surgery will most likely NOT be a plastic surgeon, but rather a doctor that has taken a very short course. The company recently reached a settlement with the State of New York over its attempts to fake favorable consumer reviews on the Web, as reported by the New York Attorney General’s office recently.
Evidently, the company had its employees pretending they were customers writing positive reviews of its marketed procedure on Web sites. The company also created its own sites of face-lift reviews to appear as independent sources.
Andrew Cuomo, the Attorney General, was quoted as saying that Lifestyle Lifts’ “attempts to generate business by duping consumers was cynical, manipulative and illegal.”
Caveat Emptor! Be sure to check what kind of doctor you are seeing before agreeing to any surgery. You are entrusting your face to someone. Make sure they have the requisite experience and training.
The New York Times reported on Lifestyle Lift in its July 15th, 2009 edition.
