5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Face and Neck Lift - Arcadia, CA

He was recommended by a friend of mine who had the same procedure last year too. Compassionate and Amazing! Dec 4th, 2012 My name is Rozanne Child and I'm 68 years young. I had a Face/Neck Lift and Mid Forehead Brow Lift on Monday, November 12, 2012 and could not be more pleased with the knowledge, expertise and artistry of Dr. Vipond. He is such a caring and compassionate man and listens carefully to his patient's questions and needs. I can understand and appreciate why Dr. Vipond was recognized as a top doctor in Pasadena for the last two years. His staff in including Kauna Ka'ai are awesome. They are attentive to your needs, questions and are always so kind. Dr. Vipond and his staff are really there for you during the entire process of healing to reveal the refreshed you! In conclusion, I would recommend Dr. Vipond without hesitation to any of my friends considering any form of facial rejuvenation

Facelift Worth It - Arcadia, CA

I interviewed four surgeons and Dr. Vipond and his staff gave me the most confidence and clearest answers. I'm very happy with the results of the facelift and with the way I was treated throughout the process. There was little discomfort and the recovery period was surprisingly short. I would recommend him without reservation.

5 out of 5 stars Melasma Treatment

Genuine Surgeon - Arcadia, CA

I went to Dr. Vipond's office based upon my best friends recommendation. I had little bumps and my pores were enlarged. The doctor spent time explaining to me the different laser treatments that would best suite my skin type and issues. After understanding my desired results I wanted to achieve, Dr. Vipond recommended the "Spectra Laser Soft Peel". I was quite nervous because I never did anything like this before. Dr. Vipond was very gentle and comforting guiding me through every step of the treatment. After the treatment I immediately notice my skin had a youthful glow and could not stop staring at my results. I plan to return for the series of treatments that Dr. Vipond said would give me the best long lasting results. I would tell anyone like me that Dr. Vipond really goes out of his way and the time spent was more than I ever expected.

Eyelid, Neck and Eyebrow Lift - I Was Pleasantly Surprised - Ontario, CA

As we went through the procedure the doctor explained step by step what was happening and the follow-up staff performed exceptionally well. I consider this service equal to the Nordstrom of cosmetic surgery.

Upper and Lower Eyelid Surgery - It Was Worth It to Some Extent

This doctor was trained as an ENT that learned through LifeLift to do two kinds of plastic surgery and nothing else.

5 out of 5 stars Lip Augmentation

20 Yr Old Restylane Top Lip Patient - Claremont, CA

To start things off I wanna say that I've always want to get my nose and lips done. When I was little I didn't know about cosmetic procedures til I got older and at first was afraid of the idea of a needle or a knife or being put under. But now that I'm even slightly older than I was you can say I finally got a back bone (pun intended). I'm first starting off slow and getting the most minor...
