5 out of 5 stars Facelift

The Recovery Time Is Nothing Less Than MAGIC

Did a lot of research meeting 4 surgeons before finding Dr. Palmer; he offered something completely different from any other Doctor a "Mini-Incision Facelift." Ten days after the surgery no one knew a thing; there was almost no bruising with one black & blue spot on my neck. It really was incredible how fast I recovered. You don't have to stop your life and hide for a month - I am 60...

5 out of 5 stars Injectable Fillers

Professional and Personable

When I decided I wanted my lips to be a bit fuller, I asked a few friends who they recommended. All three of the girls that I asked swore by the Palmer's practice and now I do as well! I have been told that other plastic surgeons try to rush you in and out of their office if you are getting a simple procedure such as injections in your lips; the Palmers spent over an hour from start to finish...

Consultation review - fantastic phone consultation with dr. francis palmer! Beverly Hills, CA

I had a phone consultation with Dr. Francis Palmer today and I just pretty much fell in love with him. I know that sounds a little funny, but I just thought he was the cat's meow. He was so friendly, knowledgeable and just really knew his stuff. I have had multiple procedures in the past (not with Dr. P) so I am not new to dealing with doctors. I can honestly say that his knowledge and...

5 out of 5 stars Radiesse

Love How I Look. Beverly Hills, CA

I've been a patient of Dr. Palmers for over 15 years. He keeps me looking and feeling very young with fillers to shape my face and minor procedures to keep me looking great. I am in my mid 40's (don't tell anyone), but people always think I'm in my early 30's. I have sent so many friends to Dr. Palmer and they all love him. Thanks Dr. Palmer for keeping me looking my best!!!!
