Carrie Ireland-Miller, RN, who has been doing my Botox injections since moving to Denver, highly recommended Dr. Mario Imola for my surgery.
Posted by Bexwest
I was referred by Carrie Ireland from Specialized Aesthetics (the absolute BEST in Denver area for Injectables/Fillers). Prior to selecting Dr Imola to complete my Revision Rhinoplasty and Face/Neck Lift, I researched and conducted consultations with several prominent cosmetic surgeons in the Denver area. His considerable reconstructive surgical experience, coupled with his extensive plastic surgery skills, convinced me to choose him to complete my challenging revision surgery. He was very up front about reasonable expectations, careful not to overpromise results, nor to recommend procedures that would not compliment my desired post-surgery outcome. Once in surgery, my previous botched rhinoplasty caused the procedure to be much more difficult than anticipated, but Dr Imola took the extra time and went the extra mile to ensure that he gave me the best possible results. In addition, his office staff is very friendly,professional, attentive, and supportive - especially his Patient Coordinator, Peggy Randall. Peggy took the time, pre-surgery, to alleviate any fears or concerns about the procedures, and post-surgery, she consistently checked on my progress to reassure me along the path to complete recovery. I am very pleased with the entire experience, and would highly recommend Dr. Imola.

After extensive online searching and countless recommendations I came across Dr. Imola. From the moment I walked into his office, I felt at ease. His staff was exceptionally friendly and informative and instantly made me feel like my decision was the right one. Getting Rhinoplasty, Chin Augmentation and Submentoplasty surgery is no small task but with Dr. Imola at the helm I knew I was in good hands. Cristian Martins.

The difference in a good rhinoplasty and a bad one can often be a couple of millimeters. Many surgeons could shave a bump off of your nose but if you need your bridge narrowed, tip refined, nasal base narrowed, nostrils evened, and septum aligned as I did, a very skilled surgeon is required. When this fact is coupled with the artistry involved in achieving a natural result, the pool of suitable surgeons becomes even smaller. Dr. Imola began studying medicine before I was born. It’s quite possible that he is better at his craft than I am at anything at this point in my life. I am very happy with my result. My advice is to find an experienced surgeon with a good reputation that specializes in rhinoplasty and examine his work. A perfect outcome is not guaranteed with any surgical procedure, though having a skilled surgeon such as Dr. Imola can greatly tilt the odds of success in your favor.

The Veterans Health care are responsible for letting me have the procedure and let me do research for Drs. that provide the type of procedure needed. I did all my research online, talking to those I contacted and one of the contacts highly recommended Dr. Imola. I contacted his office and explained the situation and how the Veterans Administration would be handling the bill since I am a disabled vet. They took the time to contact the VA to verify and ok the procedure. I do not have photos at this time, Dr Imola took pictures before and after. I did not ask for copies. Dr. Imola was very professional and he understood why I wanted the ear reconstruction. He took the time to evaluate my request and to explain the procedure and make it work for me. He removed the cartlidge from under the skin that the Army had placed to try and to duplicate an ear. As a result I was made a Prosthetic Ear and I am very satisfied with the results and I do carry a big smile now. It looks real and has helped my self esteem dramatically. He took took the time to explain approximately the time length it would take to complete the process. He was kind and expressed his concerns that I had towards myself. His staff took the time to keep in touch and make sure there were no problems after the surgery. In short, I would recommend Dr. Imola to anyone who was in need of reconstruction, simply, he listens with respect and is considerate to ones feelings and thoughts. He explains in detail the procedures that will be taken in great detail and the approximate time frame. He's a good man I must say.

I did a lot of research of online reviews about cosmetic surgeons in the Denver Metro Area, and Dr. Imola seemed to be one of the best.

I chose Dr. Imola for a Varity of reasons. I loved that he focused just on the face and that he had previously been a Dentist. I felt that he spent a lot of time with me discussing what I can expect and what results I was going to achieve with the procedure. I also loved that he wouldn’t do something that he felt wasn’t natural. My experience with Dr. Imola was nothing shy of amazing! I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results I’ve had. I’m extremely happy that I waited and was diligent about finding the right doctor for this surgery. I had wanted this done for years and never felt comfortable after leaving consultations. Dr. Imola spent over an hour with me during my first appointment and paid extreme close attention to detail which was very important to me.

Dr. Imola was the third plastic surgeon I looked at after 2 unsatisfactory appointments with other doctors. Looking on google was difficult because there were no reviews and I knew there were some doctors I was missing that were not showing up with regular search results. After being disappointed with the first two surgeons I met with, the moment I walked in Dr. Imola's office I felt comfortable and excited and knew he could perform a beautiful rhinoplasty for me. The staff was and still is so nice to me, months after the procedure and addressed all my concerns and my parents concerns when they came with me before the surgery. Dr. Imola and his staff supported my decision and made me feel comfortable and beautiful with my new nose.

I went to the appointment with a little anxiety about the shape of my nose! The stuff and the Doctor's proffessional approach took all my pressure off my worried mind! Dr Imola waste no time on talking and "seducing"you in for procedures, he is very practical and reasonable...I felt like some Angel took me up on His wings and flew me over the river of my fear and sorrow... My experience from the day 1 was flawless! The attention of financial coordinator, Leigh Ann, and receptionist Jessica, care and thoughtfulness of Mario Imola made me feel that I was Important! I would tell as many people as I know about my experience at Plastic Surgey Center, and recommend anyone who feel self conscious or unhappy about their appearance to visit them! They do Work of Art business, and don't seem to run after patients money, but more after their satisfaction and final result!!!

I had Rhinoplasty with Dr. Imola in April 2011. The outcome was fantastic - it more than exceeded my expectations. Dr. Imola is an outstanding facial surgeon and is really an "artist" in addressing every tiny detail. My nose is beautiful now - I get compliments on it all the time. Prior to surgery I had a big bump on the bridge of my nose and it "hooked" (like a witch) downward when I smiled. Not only did Dr. Imola fix the bump but he also addressed the hook and my tiny nostril flare. My nose is now one of the "cute, perky" noses I never imagined I would have. I am now going back to Dr. Imola and considering a chin implant to fully balance out my facial features. I also plan to continue to use his office for mild peels and Botox injections (I'm 28 and starting to see some very minor signs of pre-aging wrinkles).

I am 100% convinced that Dr. Imola is the type of surgeon that desires a more perfect outcome than what the client could ever imagine. His listening skills and surgical talent combine with his artistic eye to create an outcome that will meet or exceed the client's expectations. Client and physician trust is a rarity these days but you can be assured that your trust is well-placed in a surgeon like Dr. Imola.

Dr. I is an excellent surgeon. He has a lot of skill and is one of the best doctors in Denver. The results are great!

Researching and choosing the perfect plastic surgeon can be time consuming and maddening as it was not an easy task. After all it is your face that you are in trusting to a surgeon's scalpel, experience and talent. I knew as soon as I met Dr. Imola and his staff that I had made the right choice. The whole experience has been great as they are with you all the way including the post appointments. Dr. Imola has an artistic eye and it shows in his work.
