5 out of 5 stars Chin Implant

Love It - Minneapolis, MN

Dr. Szachowicz has a ton of experience with facial plastic surgery, he has written books about it and taught at the University of Minnesota, and besides being a skilled surgeon he knows about the esthetics of the face. It is important when it comes to your face to work with someone who has a sense of esthetics, beyond being a good surgeon, and can give you the right advice about what will look the best. I don't think he would perform this or any surgery unless it is the right thing for you. He also did a rhinoplasty revision on me which was excellent. He is easy to talk to as well as he is a nice person who seems to care about his patients.

Exceeds Expectations, and More - Minneapolis, MN

Exceeded all my expectations. I look myself, but younger.

5 out of 5 stars Sculptra

Sculptra - Minneapolis, MN

Dr. Szachowicz and his staff are very welcoming and make you feel so comfortable. I came into Dr. Szachowicz’s office for botox. He and Sharon talked to me about the benefits of Sculptra. I was a bit skeptical but decided to try it. I had three treatments and could not be happier with the results. My face has filled in, gone are the saggy cheeks. I saw an old neighbor of mine and he told me I looked ten years younger! This is something I truly believe in! KE

5 out of 5 stars Chin Implant

Chin Implant Review - Minneapolis, MN

Dr. Szachowicz is extraordinarily informed in all respects and was able to handle this procedure with ease, from the initial consultation to the post-op experience. The staff involved were extremely professional, controlled and put me at ease. The procedure was a walk in the park as expected compared to other surgeries. He is very passionate about his work and I am happy to continue going to him for future appointments.

What should you expect from your consultation?

Most consultations consist of getting acquainted. The surgeon wants to know more about you, your aesthetic taste, your motivations, and your state of mind. Likewise, you should know more about your surgeon. Has that office captured your wants and needs on a video imager? Do you feel fully informed about your surgical (and non-surgical) choices? Have the particulars of surgery and recovery been adequately explained? Does the surgeon's aesthetic vision meet with yours? Do you feel...

Blepharoplasty - Eyelid Surgery

The eyes are the first to be affected by aging. The eyelid tissue is thin and delicate causing the skin to wrinkle, bag, and protrude. Depending on the genetics involved, it can begin at a disconcertingly young age, but usually somewhere in the early thirties people begin to notice changes and even earlier with sun exposure. Cosmetic eyelid surgery is evolving right along with the rest of facial plastic surgery. At its simplest, blepharoplasty involves the removal of excess fat and...

How do you choose a surgeon?

All practicing physicians have the same basic training: a four year undergraduate degree (BS or BA), four years of medical school (MD), and at least one year of residency (sometimes called internship). Then it changes. In the following years either a medical or surgical path is taken. Thus, dermatologists are not considered surgeons since their medical residency does not include surgical training in invasive procedures. Two closely aligned surgical specialties are facial plastic surgery...

How can I avoid getting a look I wasn't going for?

Provided you've chosen an experienced, dedicated rhinoplastic surgeon, communication is the key element. And with video imaging you show the surgeon what you want. This technological wonder involves a computerized system using software, video camera, and high resolution monitor to provide post-operative simulations with unparalled realism. Computer imaging has become a standard part of pre-operative consultation between many aesthetic surgeons and their potential patients. Pencil...

How do I conceal my surgery when I go back to work?

Many people have concerns about reentering their work and/or social world after having surgery. The decision to have surgery is a private one and the choice to share that decision should be yours. Most people won't recognize any specific changes that they can point out. What they may notice is that you look better. You may receive lots of semi-probing comments like "Boy you look great, that vacation really was good for you" or...
