Dr. Makhlouf is an amazing surgeon! For as long as I can remember I have wanted to get a nose job in the hopes of boosting my self confidence but I was always afraid of what the results would be. Once I met with Dr. Makhlouf, he really took the time to explain the procedure, he showed me what the best nose for my face was and was able to answer any questions I had, making me feel confident about the surgery. Just by the way he measured my face and was able to draw out everything shows not only how experienced he is but also his passion for what does. For me that was a huge factor because it enabled me to trust him with my face. The surgery went very smooth, I do not recall much even after because I slept for about a day so. Everyone I had talked to in the past that had a nose surgery told me that the worst thing about it is the pain afterwords, but to my amazement I felt absolutely nothing.The way Dr. Makhlouf did the surgery had everything run smoothly afterwords. Not even a day past by and he mad sure to call and see how I was doing. I had never met a doctor to be so concerned and take such great care of his patients. It's been about two years after my surgery and I could not be happier with the results. No one can ever guess that I had my nose done. A lot of times when I tell people they look at me and still can't believe it. The way it is so proportionate to my face now and straight it just makes it impossible to tell that it was worked on. As I have mentioned before I could have not asked for anything better. It definitely boosted my self confidence and now I am no longer stressed when people look at me. I have recommended Dr. Makhlouf to all my friends and I will continue to do so because I do not think that there is a better plastic surgeon out there.

This is my 3rd surgery with Dr. Makhlouf. I had a crisis after my surgery and he called me back within minutes. I totally trust his honestly and judgment with regards to my preference. He will listen to what you think you want and then explain in detail what is best for your health and overall appearance. Any other doctor would just do what you ask and not take the time to show what would be best for YOU.

What is a successful consultation? A successful consultation has to have specific outcomes that will be achieved. But before we get to the discussion of what these should be, both the patient and the office have to be prepared for the interaction. The patient gets prepared by investigating the office, investigating the practitioner and checking the credentials, certificates, reputation and the experience, and preparing question they want to cover during the visit. The office...
Today Plastic Surgery offers many options to address body contouring. I believe that as knowledge, technology and new pharmaceuticals continue to improve we will see many more avenues available to address these issues. A qualified surgeon must be able to offer a variety of modalities to address patients’ concerns: from liposuction to skin and muscle tightening to lipodissolve. He should be diversified and have more than one tool (a hammer) in his toolbox so that not all problems will be a...
One of the legitimate concerns people have regarding abdominoplasty is the cost of the procedure. There are two reasons to ask the cost of a purchase: The first reason is to see whether we can afford the purchase, and the second reason is to compare the purchase price at different locations. In order to decide if one can afford the procedure, an evaluation of one’s financial situation is needed: • Do I have the money now? • Am I going to have unexpected expenses...

A small amount of redundancy can be corrected by increasing...
