5 out of 5 stars Mini Lift

Eyelids and Mini-facelift Fabulous! - Palo Alto, CA

When it comes to having facial plastic surgery, there is only one choice for me...Dr. Jill Hessler. She is a gifted surgeon who listens to what you want and offers sound advice on what to expect. The greatest concern that I had was looking "done." My results were natural and I came away looking "refreshed", my main goal. She is a compassionate, caring physician who always puts her patients first. Combine that with an artistic skill and the results were beyond my expectations! Looking ahead I will always seek out Dr. Hessler and can only strongly encourage others to look to her when considering any type of cosmetic facial improvements.

So Happy I Did This - Palo Alto, CA

I'd been seeing Dr. Hessler for other treatments, so I felt completely comfortable and confident in having the surgery done by her. Her work is exceptional, and her bedside manner even better. I highly recommend her for anyone looking to do fillers, injectables, or surgery. I will continue going back to Dr. Hessler for any further tune-ups I may need in the future.

Looking Good and Loving It - Palo Alto, CA

I have given Dr Hessler this rating because I am completely satisfied with her as a surgeon and the results of my procedure exceeded my expectations. I found Dr Hessler after months of research and checking other doctors. I was becoming a serial consult patient. I am completely satisfied with my experience with Dr Hessler hense the high marks. I had been thinking about getting a full facelift for sometime. I did research on the internet and made consult appointment's with numerous plastic surgeons. I felt that I needed to feel comfortable with not only the doctors skill but personality as well. When I met Dr Hessler it was a match made in heaven.She is a double board certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in the face and neck. I was impressed the way Dr Hessler was genuinely listening to my concerns and expectations. I was asked "what bothers you the most?" My answer was I felt I looked old. She understood and started to explain what my options were and what results we could achieve. I respected her honesty.I once again left a doctors office with my packet of information but this time I knew it was different.I had found not only a skilled surgeon but someone that i had total confidence in.

Smooth and Firm - Palo Alto, CA

A friend rec. her....I am glad I found her.

5 out of 5 stars Acne Scars Treatment

Acne Scar Treatment - Palo Alto, CA

Dr. Hessler came highly recommended from a friend who previously had a procedure performed by her. I was a little shy about seeing a plastic surgeon as it was my first time, but she ended up making me feel really at ease for coming in and discussing possible treatments and options. The options ranged from creams to lasers and surgery. I never really felt pushed towards the more expensive options and she was very conscious of working within my budget. I'd definitely see Dr. Hessler for any procedures in the future.

My mother and husband both until this day cannot tell I had anything done (yay for natural)! Plus, I was going out...

5 out of 5 stars Lower Face Lift

So pleased with my experience

I recently underwent a lower face and neck lift performed by Dr. Jill Hessler after having sworn I would never have such a procedure. I do not regret my decision nor the results, Jill Hessler made me feel extremely confident and comfortable throughout the entire process. Her youthful appearance, demeanor and gregariousness belie her superb ability and expertise as a surgeon. I would not...
