excellent surgeon fantastic in-house surgery center - Edina, MN

I was 51 and super fit---but my face did not match my fit body---I was looking tired and droopy even when I wasn't tired. I do not look "pulled" I just look refreshed and look like I feel which is exactly what I wanted. There are absolutely no visible scars and I do not usually heal that well---even my hairdresser can't see any scars--it's amazing.

Edina Plastic Surgeon

I interviewed four different plastic surgeons before choosing my Dr. and I made the right choice! From the in-house surgery center to the back elevator that can be used for post-op appointments to the caring staff it was a great decision. Dr. W listens carefully and was meticulous in his work. My results are EXACTLY what I asked for from my mini-facelift, browlift, blehpharoplasty, chemical peel and fat transfer. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends!

I would have to agree completely. Dr. Wilke did my reduction and they look 100% untouched. From the nipple being completely removed to the scars that are supposed to be underneath they are so faint you can't even see them until you get a microscope. He is extremely compassionate and cares so much about the outcome. I can't imagine any single PS could have done better. There was really no room for improvement when he was finished. :)

Hi you sound a lot like me, I'm also fit, triathlons, etc., but unfortunatly my neck looks terrible and I'm only 44. Looking for a necklift but as I understand I will have incisions in front and behind my ears. I wear my hair up a lot and I'm afraid people will be able to see the incisions possible scars. How long did they take to go away? I really want to do this but obviously somewhat afraid.

Hi 845070anon,

Completely understand. I'm so glad you had such a positive experience. You must be the talk of your friends right now, about how rested and refreshed you look :) They must think you went to a fabulous spa on a major relaxing vacation, a bit of mystery is always good ;) Thanks for the info, and keep us updated about how your are doing in a few months.

Hi 845070anon, I wrote to you yesterday hoping we can chat in private. Wanted to tell you, I made an appointment for Dr. Wilke for the end of October. Hope you will write to me. I am excited about this. Thanks, Brooke

I would love to talk to you in private. I am looking for a surgeon, now live in your area. I understand your need for privacy. Can you think of any way we could communicate? I had thought of another doctor in the same setting, but with you talking about Dr. W, maybe that is the way to go. Hope we can chat.

I do not feel comfortable posting before and afters since I didn't tell virtually anyone that I got this work done. The work was so excellent that I just look "better" and not pulled or tight---which is an art in itself. So none of my friends know that I had anything done. You'll just have to take my word for it that I look much better---my eyes are spectacular--and just look exactly the way I wanted to. Dr. Wilke is a genius!

What exactly did you have done on your face? I have a consultation with Dr. Wilke scheduled and have already consulted with 2 other PS. All give me different opinions as to what procedures would be best.
