5 out of 5 stars Facelift

For a lovely and totally natural result, Dr Brent is my #1 choice

As always Dr Brent consistently under promises and over delivers on all aspects of his procedures, support and work ethic. I have had a number of facial procedures performed by Dr Brent and I would recommend him to anyone who asked my advice because my results are so natural that my own parents still do not know I have anything done! Also, his loyal staff who treat me with absolute kindness...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Highly Recommend!!

I have been going to see Dr. Brent for Botox for about 10 years - and he is always so professional, and the results are excellent. Somehow he manages to artfully "airbrush" the Botox so that it's not obvious that I even have HAD Botox in the first place.... I can still move my eyebrows, make all of my facial movements, and never ever has it ever looked "overdone". He is an artist and I will...

5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

Thank God for Doctor Moelleken

I would never let another Plastic Surgeon touch my face after having Dr. Moelleken take care of me. I had such a complicated rhinoplasty, not only did Dr. Moelleken fix everything that was wrong on the inside, he made the outside so much more pleasing! It took years off my face. Since then I've seen Dr. Moelleken for other tweaks on my face as he brings everything into balance. It's...

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Very Hapoy

I have spent the majority of my life in the sun. For my 60th birthday I really wanted a Facelift, but was worried that the lack of elasticity in my skin would leave me looking "pulled" or "done". Dr. Moelleken showed me how his Mid-face lift helps eliminate the "pulled" look. I told him I didn't need to look 50 again, I just wanted to look good for my age. Yesterday was 30 days after my...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Terrific hybrid tummy tuck

I had a hybrid tummy tuck due to significant diastisis recti after two pregnancies. I'm 6 months post op now. My abs are flat from front and side, I have a smaller waist and my belly button is no longer herniated. Dr. M was very kind, friendly and thorough before, day of and for follow ups. Staff is really sweet. I feel I picked the best out there.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Top Doc, Top Staff, Top results!

I had a hernia repair in the upper portion of my abs and was trying to find a Dr. that would approach the repair and also replace my saline implants and Dr. Moelleken was my guy. Implants replaced, hernia fixed. I had a complication as well, which unfortunately happens and Dr. Moelleken jumped in fixed it and and my tummy is as tight and flat as a board. We discussed in detail what the...

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Great experience!

I had a great experience with Dr. Moelleken and his staff the consultation to the after care! The consultation was comprehensive and Dr. Moelleken was approachable and easy to ask questions. All the staff was helpful with suggestions on where to stay when coming from out of state, communication before surgery, how to transport to the aftercare facility and scheduling follow up appointments.

5 out of 5 stars Scar Removal

Great experience

The customer service was awesome! I came here quite a while ago to get some laser services for a knee scar and they really took care of me. Crystal is also fantastic!! I would definitely refer friends and family here!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

Upfront and Personal with the "Full Mommy" - Beverly Hills, CA

Once again, Dr. Brent Moelleken reaffirms that he is not only an exceptional Plastic Surgeon, but a true artist in his craft. He is a surgeon who actually understands what "natural results" look like so you look like you, only better, not some Hollywood characture. I have worked with other surgeons before on breast implants and so I have some experience to cross compare. Dr. Brent Moelleken does the most precise and discreet stitch work I have seen. Ladies this is important because clean beautiful stitches provide a clean beautiful opportunity for minimized scarring. My husband agrees so much so that he stated...that Dr. Moelleken is the only plastic surgeon who should touch my breasts again, all though I am reasonably certain this explant and lift procedure should be my breast finale. Penny, and Crystal are such a great support team too and I always find that they both make my entire experience from consultation to multiple followup visits easy and welcoming. From the moment surgery is complete, Dr. Brent is personally always available to answer questions or concerns. If there is an issue, he is available to help resolve it, sometimes accommodating, even at the earliest of morning hours! His longterm surgical team deserves a "shout out" as well. They are incredible. His Doctor for sedation, is so gentle and I just went from surgical prep to recovery seamlessly and as if by magic. His surgical nurse puts one at ease with her expertise and understanding empathetic nature. They are all a fantastic well honed team, this Moelleken Surgical Family. I believe, after having multiple procedures, that with Dr. Moelleken, I have found the "High Standards" and "Natural Results" that I consider paramount for Plastic Surgery and for me, there is no need to go to anyone else. Plus, he is a real genuine, not Beverly Hills arrogant kind of gentleman, who listens, gives sincere opinions, and has a nice subtle sense of humor.

5 out of 5 stars Injectable Fillers

Beautiful results from lip filler thanks to Dr Moelleken

Great doctor. Beautiful results! I was initially hesitant to use lip filler, so I went to Dr Moelleken because of his stellar reputation. He put my mind at ease and I knew it would look natural. My lower lip has always been full, but my upper lip was becoming less full and uneven as I aged (I also smoke). Below is a photo hours after injection. Very even and symetrical. I'm so happy! The...
