Went in for eyelid surgery, botox and fat transfer for smile lines. Dr. Curran was very honest with me and told me botox and juvederm is temporary and would not get me the results I was looking for. I had jowels and wrinkles. To get the results I wanted he highly suggested a face lift along with the eyelid surgery. He is one of the most compassionate doctors I have ever the pleasure of... more
Dr. Romo will undoubtedly give me an honest assessment of what I need, despite what I think I need. Dr. Romo is an artist and a surgeon, and strives to improve upon the structure that I have now, or what nature has given me, rather than radically change it, even though the radical change may be what I want deep inside. This "desire" doesn't jive with my day-to-day life. Dr. Romo knows what... more
I had a face and neck lift 3 months ago by Dr. Amiya Prasad in his Garden City, NY office. I went to Dr. Prasad the first time to repair eye surgery done by another doctor. He did an amazing job making my eyes look normal again. So when I considered an face lift , I went back to him and I am so glad I did! He does beautiful work He is so patient and kind, he makes you feel great every time... more
To get to the point right from the beginning: Dr. Jacono gave me my face back!
Now, to briefly explain: A couple of years ago,after looking in the mirror and not liking what I saw, I had a face lift. I was very unhappy with the results. At first, I tried to rationalize it by thinking, "...what do I expect "at my age"-- I can't have the face I had at the "peak" of a woman's natural beauty..:... more
When I looked at the mirror, I felt more and more not like my appearance due to aging. After serious thought and I received multiple face surgeries (face-lift, neck-lift, fat injection, and lower eyelid lift) done by Dr. Andrew Miller. I am very satisfied the outcomes of my surgeries, very happy with all the artistic work Dr. Miller performed on my face. more
I decided to get a face lift with neck lift, I am 54 years old. I felt that I was aging and that this would give me a more relax and fresh look. It is the best thing I did. I look 20 years younger, but I still look like myself. People stop me to say how great I look but they cannot pinpoint what changed. That was exactly what I wanted. more
I'm just one week out from a facelift with Dr. Breitbart and I couldn't have made a better decision. His work is excellent. Minimum bruising or swelling and my stitches were so adeptly placed it took me a few days to find them. I could tell as I recovered I had gone with a true expert. I completely recommend him. If you're even considering a facelift, go and see him and any concerns will be... more
FANTASTIC Result From Lower Blepharoplasty And Mid Face Lift!
I am beyond thrilled with every aspect of my surgical experience with Dr. Jeffrey Schiller and the ELTRA Surgical Center!
I had a lower blepharoplasty with mid face lift at the beginning of July. I did not have lower eye bags, but obvious tear troughs were making me look tired and aging. By the grace of God, I found Dr.... more
Eyelids resting on my eyelashes initiated my original visit. After consultation, I proceeded with the eyelids, a face lift, fat grafting, and a chemical peel. I am very pleased with the results. I love seeing the looks on my friends' faces and I don't mind showing my medicare card and getting second glances at the face that goes with it. more
I am a 58 year old female who has always looked younger than my age until 8 years ago when I turned 50 and menopause literally caused my face to melt almost over night. I have researched plastic surgeons in NJ and NY and have a consultation scheduled with Dr Dan Baker in NY in a few weeks. Very anxious!
I have been waiting 7 months for this appointment, I made it back in December 2013,... more
I have been through alot of procedures, 14 years ago I had a brow lift. 12 years ago, lower eye. 8 years ago Contour threadlift ( what a waste)./ sculptra injections left lumps, and had cortisone injections to decrease the lumps only with leaving me atrophied tissue, and big deep wrinkles.
I had been told I was not a candidate for facelift because my face is so thin, and thin skinned. ... more
Excellent staff, excellent doctor. Dr. Newman was patient and went through all the pros and cons of the surgery for me, MULTIPLE times. The surgery went without a problem. Recovery did not take as long as I expected, in a week the bruising and swelling greatly decreased. During my recovery, I saw Dr. Newman everyday after surgery for over a week, just for him to check on me, and he didn't... more
For all the anxiousness I had regarding the procedures I wanted to have done I was so surprised at how well everything went!
Dr. Ciardullo was patient and kind. He answered all the questions I had and included some I hadn’t thought of. He has a good background affiliated with cosmetic surgery and good credentials and is highly thought of in his profession. His assistant, Bobbi, is... more

In June of '12 I had a face-lift along with an eye-lift in anticipation of my son's wedding in the early Spring of this year, and I was more than pleased with the results and continue to be. These were not my first procedures with Dr. Ciardullo as I also had a tummy-tuck as well as a breast-lift on separate occasions. Again, I have been thrilled with the results. I am 56 yrs. old and people... more
I have had a rhinoplasty from Dr. Slupchynskyj. The procedure and subsequent after care is what made my final decision to have him do my face lift, or should I say "SlumpLift", a technique that he pioneered. I am no stranger to cosmetic surgery and have to say how absolutely amazed I am with my recovery. Seven days post op. I had my sutures and staples removed. Two days after that I was back... more
I went to Dr. M. Verga thru a recommendation of a Plastic Surgery "Consultant". He seemed professional and seemed to listen to my concerns.... I liked the idea that he prided himself on the fact that he did NOT need to use drains on my face after surgery due to his training and experience... Good right??? Big mistake! He may be skilled to operate "quickly" and perhaps efficiently, but his... more

My last facelift was 2002 by Dr. Gallagher I was much younger than so it was a little different this time. This week she has performed a masterfull job. I am ecstatic.
Naturally it is only a week and I am still slightly swollen and bruised. It was most professtional and very thorough. It really builds your morale. If anyone would like to do this give her a call and go for a ... more
I was interested in cosmetic surgery because of my sagging jowl and lack of definition in my chin. Dr. Jacono returned these features perfectly with minimal pain and no post surgical problems at all. The surgery went well and as awful as I looked immediately following the surgery I was back at work with noticeable bruising on my chin after 12 days. Dr. Jacono saw me every 3 or 4 days post... more
