5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Fabulous Facelift! - Phoenix, AZ

I never thought I would do anything like this. I am very glad I did. I look in the mirror and see a familiar face instead of the old lady I was seeing beforehand. I am 62 years old and had very bad sun damage. What I am happiest about is the very natural look I retain, not that odd over-done plastic surgery one often sees. I would like to add that Dr. Ward's suggestions and counsel were...

Deciding to have a facelift was one of the toughest decisions I have made in a long time, choosing the physician was the easiest. Dr. W has the character and professional credentials to instill confidence in his patients. He has a personal manner of kindness and caring to make his patients feel comfortable. The natural results are fantastic. My husband and friends are witnesses of his great work. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. W and his caring staff.

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Thrilled with Results of "Mommy Makeover" - Phoenix, AZ

Through diet and exercise (slowly after 2.5 years), I was able to get within a few pounds of my pre-pregnancy weight. Unfortunately, I still looked a few months pregnant because of the extra skin left behind from my last pregnancy. (My belly measured 44 weeks at my 32 week OBGYN appointment due to extra fluid and a large baby!!) I also had a scar from two C-Sections and my breasts were not as...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Simply the Best Plastic Surgeon - Phoenix, AZ

I had made the HUGE (pun intended) mistake of getting implants that were way too big and felt like a freak. I exchanged them for silicone implants that were half the size.
