Sliding Genioplasty, Jawline Augmentation, Cheek Implants - Vancouver, BC

In Britain, we're often told that we do more research on our bathroom tiles than we do when selecting a cosmetic surgeon. I made that mistake once when I had a poor outcome from primary and revision rhinoplasty surgery. With regard to my nose, I didn't do much research on the doctor or hospital at the time but when I decided on Dr Wittenberg, a lot of thought went into my decision in selecting him. We obviously have excellent doctors in the UK but I didn't think anyone here had/has as much experience in jaw and facial contouring like doctors in North America. I was researching doctors in the US but then came across Dr Wittenberg. He seems to be one of a very few surgeons who actually answers people's questions on this site - take a look at his answers compared to other doctors. Anyway, I decided to get in contact with his office and explained what I wanted to have done. I agreed on sliding genioplasty, jaw line implants and jaw angle implants (all goretex). I went back at the end of April 2016 to get cheek implants (silicone). I feel I'm still in the healing phase so will give things a year or so to settle down. When I agreed on the procedures with his office, they provided an all inclusive quote and I paid and they confirmed my surgery date. His helpful staff (Sarah in particular) was my main point of contact and very responsive. They arranged all of my hotel stay and a nurse/carer for after the operation. The hotel is literally opposite his offices where the surgery took place. I have to cut this review short unfortunately as I'm sitting in an airport lounge writing this and need to catch my flight now; but I will answer questions if people have any. Before I go, a bit about the surgery and recovery:- All surgery went great and I took the meds and mouthwash as recommended. Very little pain or discomfort (cheek implants were surprisingly simple). Massive jaw swelling but that's expected. I was paranoid about keeping my mouth clean and did as much as I humanly could to avoid any infection. I did drink a bit too much alcohol at times and regretted it the following day if I'd forgotten to brush my teeth etc. One of the best outcomes is the amount of weight I lost as I couldn't open my mouth properly for some time, I was restricted to baby food/protein shakes etc. Overall, I am very happy with the outcomes I've had. I couldn't actually see or realise the dramatic changes but when I've seen family and friends whom I've not seen in months or years they cannot stop staring at my cheekbones or sculpted jawline. So for that, I'm grateful to Dr Wittenberg, gotta go...

Still Amazed How Great It is - Vancouver, BC

Very experienced and you can tell not only from all his pictures (some doctors show only a few - he has so many! ) and explains it all to you and answers all questions. He is an artist! Great staff too. very friendly place and they make you feel kinda special all the time. Really good group of people.

Horrible Consultation with Dr Wittenburg - Vancouver, BC

The doctor himself didn't take the time to get to know what you want. He askes a couple questions then starts to talk about what he thinks you should do without giving you time to step in and talk about what you want. Very rushed and impatient.

Best Way to Fix Eyebags and Lift Cheeks at Same Time - Natural Result - Vancouver, BC

Very gentle, kind and obviously loves his work. He always wants to educate you about your concern so you truly get it and don't just do something that you think would work. He has many years of experience and the staff say he does thousands of surgeries. Professional yet friendly. Highly recommended

Worth the Travel to See Dr Wittenberg - Vancouver, BC

Dr Wittenberg is so calm, experienced and such an artist. He really wants to educate you about the options and what to expect and what he found at surgery. My results are natural and speak for themselves and that may be his best recommendation. Great surgeon.

Never Knew It Was This Easy. Great! - Vancouver, BC

Dr Wittenberg is so nice and so detailed. He was always encouraging and friendly and made me very relaxed almost about the surgery. Really like his bedside manner and I really appreciate how amazing he is and the results he gets for his patients. He has photos of so many patients and they all look so natural. A real artist and a real expert.

genioplasty, cheek implant and buccal fat removal

He is a very sweet guy! I liked how he wasn't over selling himself, he didn't try convincing me of anything, just kind of said it like it is. He is very experienced, kind, and over-emphasized that he specialized in doing things natural which is exactly what I wanted. Was very professional throughout the whole experience and I am thankful thus for having been lucky enough to find him!
