5 out of 5 stars Brow Lift

Dr. Fleming Originated the Hairline Lift - Why Go Anywhere Else? - Beverly Hills, CA

Dr Fleming put me at ease. I was scared of anesthesia - he made me totally comfortable. I had pre and post surgical questions, he patiently answered all of them. Dr. Fleming is a straight shooter with a sense of humor and a sense of who he's dealing with. Maria, Dr. Fleming's long time nurse, held my hand. I just knew I was in the right place with the right doc.

30 Years Old Hairline Lowering Procedure - Beverly Hills, CA

Dr. Fleming is unapologetically honest, even if it's telling you what you don't want to hear. He looks out for your best interest which I love. He is a professional and probably the best in his field for the procedure he preformed on me, Hairline Lowering. He has great bedside manners and a sense of humor. The other thing I noticed about Dr. Fleming doing my research of all the doctors for my procedure, is that he's an artist.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty With Fascia Graft - Beverly Hills, CA

Dr. Fleming was super knowledgable and kind, which put me and my family at ease from the very start. I remember leaving the consultation and all of us just discussing how much knowledge he had about the nose and how well he was able to explain it to people and have it make sense without them having the background knowledge he has. During the consultation he reviewed everything that he recommended we do in order to restore my breathing while reducing the bump and building up the dip between my eyes. The day of surgery Dr. Fleming said hi to me with a warm smile before I was prepped and reassured by Maria and Dr. Dabish. Once the surgery was done and I had awoken from the anesthetics Dr. Fleming was there again to let me know that the surgery had gone smoothly with no complications in anyway. Maria was always available through email or phone during the first week of recovery while I had a cast on my nose, in case we had any concerns before the checkup, set at the end of the week. At the end of the recovery week, we met with Dr. Fleming one last time, the cast was removed from my nose, along with a few stitches at the bottom of the tip of the nose. A few staples were also removed that appointment, Maria was very gentle when doing this and it was painless. Dr. Fleming did the final inspection of my nose, which already looked so much better in my opinion than before I had the surgery. Again I was blown away by Dr.Flemings vast knowledge on the nose and his ability to communicate it to others, I always felt comfortable because I knew I was in the best hands possible.Before meeting Dr. Fleming I had read a review that he was an artist and I completely agree, I know perfect is not possible, but a beautiful job is and that's what your guaranteed with Dr.fleming.

33 Yr Old Wanting Rhinoplasty Since 14 Yrs Old - Beverly Hills, CA

Dr Flemming has a great bedside manner. He's great to talk to, he listens , he knows what you need to make your request come true. He was just as available after the surgery. He called me the day of surgery to make sure I was ok. His experience, certifications and large gallery is what helped me choose him.

My New Beautiful Nose - Beverly Hills, CA

Dr Fleming is very caring and it shows. He is patient and explained every question I had even if I asked for a second or third time. He is honest and funny. He made me feel at home. His experience made me trust him. You can feel and understand that this is something that he has full control of and that put me to ease. I love my new nose and I am glad I found him. If you want an experience without regrets, Dr Fleming is the right person. I would choose him every time.

25 Years Old, Primary Rhinoplasty - Beverly Hills, CA

Dr. Fleming puts you at ease as soon as you meet him. He is very confident and has so much experience, but he really takes the time to explain everything, answer all questions (no matter how trivial), and reassure his patients (in my experience so far). Any time I am anxious about my upcoming rhinoplasty, I read his comments here on Real Self and am reassured and confident in my choice of surgeon!

Hairline Lowering

Look at celebrity Kim Kardashian and you see the ideal hairline. Her hair frames her face perfectly, no matter what style she selects. She is among the fortunate few. Other women struggle with too-high hairlines that distract from their facial beauty. Many women have a large forehead secondary to a congenitally high hairline; some women found themselves with a too- high hairline after cosmetic surgery. A high hairline can give women a balding, masculine appearance, so they spend a lot of...
