5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Incredible! - Palo Alto

I really adore Dr. V. He is so well informed and he's also very conservative in his procedures. I feel like he wants you to look the best you can for your age.

He is amazing and so is his staff. Gerri is great! She has been helping me throughout all this. Dr. Vistnes really explained everything and both him and Gerri have been great with my post op. I highly recommend them if you are thinking about getting this procedure done and you live close by.

45 Years Old with 2 Kids - Palo Alto, CA

Dr Vistnes explained every thing that I could imagine about what this is going to be like . I had two procedures done , the upper and lower lid blepharoplasty. He has a lot of patients and he is very very pleasant. His team was there for me at every step of the way with lots of love and care. It was a great experience and very happy with the results

28 Yr Old, 5'4", 115 Lbs, 32B; Finally Got Boobs! 397cc - Palo Alto, CA

The first time I met Dr. Vistnes was last October. Right away, he started explaining how he decides the dimensions of the implant and why he preferred one insertion point over the other. His reasonings made so much sense. How he presented himself and the procedure was a lot more comforting than the other doctor I had visited with. I also liked the fact that he likes to see his patients regularly after the operation to make sure everything is going smoothly. I would rather have a doctor that requests too many check ups than one that wants to just toss you out to the wolves once you're all healed. It just shows he wants to make sure his work of art still looks good and as satisfying years later. The girls at his office are also very nice. They both have had their boobs done so you can ask them as many questions as you want and hear their experience. It's a lot more comforting than just reading reviews online. I will have a more detailed review after the procedure and post-op appointments.

Dr. Vistnes is very professional and did a great job explaining everything every step of the way. From explaining why certain things happen to what to expect in the future. I would highly recommend him!

Very professional, describes the procedures pre and post-op very well. Extremely honest and described the trade off between what I was about to do precisely. The office staff has always been polite and professional. They have treated me just like family.
