Dr. Halaas has an amazing aesthetic eye and is the most caring surgeon. She listens to what you want and has excellent recommendations. I met with her and really did not know what I needed. She recommended a rhinoplasty to refine my nose and a blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to take away the heaviness of my eyelids. It was the greatest thing I ever did. The improvement is amazing--it is still me, but just much better. My confidence level has soared and I feel much better about myself. Her staff is great-they really care and take the time to explain everything to you and hold your hand throughout the entire experience. They also can make arrangements to stay with you post procedure. I would recommend Dr. Halaas to anyone I know and I would definitely go back to her for any of my cosmetic needs. She also does a fabulous job with injectables-- I have had Botox and Juvederm from her and she really has a great technique and knows the artistry of it all. She is an honest and ethical doctor and she speaks from the heart and with great knowledge, skill and experience.

I have known Dr. Halaas for at least ten years. She was practicing In New Jersey. Dr. Halaas is a great, skilled plastic surgeon who immediately put me at ease. The staff is kind and reassuring with excellent follow-up. I couldn't be happier.

I saw Dr. Halaas today and was so impressed by how personable and friendly she was ( and her staff). She made me feel so comfortable and she spent time looking at my face and weighing my options. She decided to dissolve some overfilled juvaderm done by a different doctor and 4 hours later it's already looking better. Will be going to her for injections from now on!!

Online google. Dr. Halaas is a dream come true for us who are concerned about hair loss, and her staff are like angles. I had absolutely nothing to worry about as they all are very nurturing and conscientious. They gave me the best advice as to how to go about the procedure as a patient during surgery. This was my first time seeing Dr Halaas, and my first impression upon meeting her for a consultation was that she is very down to earth, caring, a great listener and very interested in my concerns. She explained to me exactly what my options were, what to expect; she made sure she answered all my questions. As a guy concerned about my hair because of the line of work I am in and generally wanted to look my age, she made me feel very comfortable and completely at ease. Her staff impressed me by how experienced they were. They made the experience very relaxing and comfortable and made sure I got home ok. It was like I had my family members taking care of me. I am extremely grateful for that, it's hard to find an ideal situation like that with a doctor and her staff. She is by far the best experience I've ever had with any doctor. I had one hair procedure before with another doctor but I chose Dr. Halaas for my second because she made me feel at ease, she is the best and had great reviews. I took a chance and I'm extremely glad I did with her because she made my hair look natural and as awesome as it did as a teenager. She's a dream and my results are also a dream. I am extremely grateful to her and her staff. I wholeheartedly recommend her. If you are a male looking for a hair surgeon and reading this, you HAVE FOUND your doctor. You will be happy you consulted her!

Referral from a friend. No one could ask for a better doctor! I love the results of my botox and I was so nervous to start down this path. Dr. Halaas is very caring and compassionate to the needs of her patients and she spends a lot of time with you to ensure you are comfortable with the procedures. Also, Dr. Halaas has a great patient coordinator who is extremely knowledgeable. The patient coordinator was able to explain the different procedures and how I would benefit from each of them. Perhaps the best part is that she is reasonably priced. BTW, her office is impeccably clean and her staff is knowledgeable, professional and courteous. I highly recommend Dr. Yael Halaas.

Dr. Halaas took the time to explain in detail how the procedures would be completed and the type of expectations I should assume. Colleagues of mine have used other facial plastic surgeons that have allowed them to over reach thereby giving them too much of an artificial expression. The team of professionals at Dr. Halaas' office had a full understanding of my surgeries and guided me through the recuperation process. Together they have exceeded my expectations and I cannot say enough good things about them.
