5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

Great surgeon of the Face

He should be called the Face surgeon given all the types of surgery he does with the face! wow. He originally did my jaw surgery years ago with both jaws and chin done. I had a great result and when it came time to look at some cosmetic work he was the first person I thought of. i had moved but I woukd travel anywhere to have Dr Wittenberg do my surgery. Really trust him. The consultation was...

Eyes looking good. Me feeling great

So for year everyone kept telling me how tired I looked. So frustrating. I am always in good shape and get lots of rest too. My son had jaw surgery with Dr Wittenberg and he did amazing and I really appreciated the great care from Dr Wittenberg and his staff. He did followup visits too and I saw all the great pictures that Dr Wittenberg has in his office of cosmetic facial surgery patients who...

I never thought to write a review until this experience with Dr Wittenberg. i felt that reviews were either honest or a way to get back at the doctor in some.cases without hearing both sides. But in this case I had such a positive experience that I really wanted to say something. I had looked into a chin surgery for a long time but never found the right feeling with a surgeon. Dr Wittenberg's...

Sliding Genioplasty / Cheek Implant / Jaw Implants / Buccal Fat Removal

Very patient and a total artist. He listened to my concerns and was very confident in how he could fix them. He suggested things to optimize my outcome and has been very helpful post op. I am travelling back into Vancouver in two weeks for in person post op and am hoping for swelling to be evened out.

Jawbone Surgery 3 Areas Lipo Cheek Implants Buccal Fat Removal Upper Nas Filled to Get Rid of Duck "Swing" Lip - Vancouver, BC

He is very soft spoken yet firm in the ideas he has for you. I'm a very visual person so I like to see what the plan is - but he will work towards that within reason. The main goals were to have a jawline and chin like kim k, and cheek bones like Angelina /Meghan fox. What he said was that we can definitely get me looking angular but within the context of my facial balance.

Love this man!!

I have gotten now a total of 4 procedures with Dr. Wittenberg. My results have been absolutely amazing. Previously I did cheek implants, sliding genioplasty, and buccal fat removal. This time I did jawline implants to smooth and countour jaw alongside the sg. 1) He is very experienced and talented, and he makes sure his results are natural. Honestly, while I did extensiv research on many...

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...
