I am a RN that works in the Operating Room of a Surgical Center. I do not work with Dr. Hessler in any capacity and have not received any stipend for my review.

I had an advanced mini facelift with Mr.Hayter exactally two weeks ago and I'm absolutely thrilled at the results. I'm only 37 years old but after losing weight (but generally being unhappy about my saggy face for years) I decided to go ahead with the lift. I was really anxious but the whole... READ MORE

Once I hit 50 and lost about 20 pounds I noticed I really had a droopy and tired appearance. I tried the injectables but they really didn't give me much of a different look. So for about 2 years I contemplated the min-facelift before having Dr. Raj Chowdary perform my surgery. I am thrilled! I... READ MORE

I originally had a consultation with Dr. Krau to change out my 16-yr old silicone breast implants done by another doctor, feeling that they were just perhaps getting too old. Since I was there (and feeling SO sure of him) I asked about the possibility of "fixing" a few issues I was beginning to... READ MORE

Dr. Richard Gentile discussed my situation honestly and realistically with me, then performed my mini lift under local anesthesia (my choice). The results were absoplutely beautiful, completely natural and have lasted quite well for five years. At the same time as my lift, Dr. Gentile revised a... READ MORE

I am scheduled to have the mini lift in October. I am an ex smoker and am finally going to get rid of the slack skin around the mouth and jawline caused by years of smoking. The procedure is being performed by Dr. Vath. Everything I have read on-line is so reassuring. It sounds like both he and... READ MORE

As a healthcare professional (RN), I felt that I researched extensively before making a decision on getting a face lift. Personally, I wasn't looking for something very extreme. That is why I was attracted to the "slup lift" performed by Dr. Slupchynskyj. His website is very informative. There... READ MORE

 I got a really nice face and eye lift for what my unique needs were. I wasn't considering to do my eyes until after my consultation and then I realized how much my eyes made me look old and after deciding to do the eyes I am so glad I did; it made a huge difference. I consulted another... READ MORE

I was considering having some face work done, so picking a plastic surgeon had to be one of the most important and crucial decisions that I ever had to make in my life. I work in a women’s center so I have seen various cosmetic surgeries done from different plastic surgeons. My mother and... READ MORE

Last year I had a mini facelift and liposuction to remove fat and tighten the loose skin on my neck. Well, the left side of my face had a noticable fat pocket that the doctor did not get. So I went back to him at additional cost for him to basically even up my face. He said no problem... READ MORE

I'm a 40 yr old male, who has recently undergone a upper and lower mini face lift, to restore my youthful appearence. The pros were, the price for a mini lift is cheap, when compared to a full face lift. Also, I was wide awake for the entire procedure. There was no pain, during or post... READ MORE

I began considering a minilift after having an emergency hysterectomy last summer. I did not go on hormone replacement and saw MAJOR changes in my appearance like a literal landslide beginning shortly after my procedure. My hope was to cut the radical changes off at the pass. I did my... READ MORE

Cuts in front and behind the ear was what I was told would be done. Woke up during surgery to hear staples being punched into the back of my head. Improvement to lower cheeks but some wrinkles reappeared 3 weeks later after swelling went down. Worth $7200 to lose some wrinkles - not really... READ MORE

This procedure was a long and laborious decision for me. After years of unprotected sun exposure I found myself at 63 with a neck and chin that I wanted to repair as much as possible. I also had my upper eye lids done. I had 3 finalists that I was choosing from. I live in Marin, so Greenbrae... READ MORE
