42 Year Old Ready to Be Done with my Double Chin! Boulder, CO

I started this journey back in October when one of my clients and friend, who works with Dr. Justin Maxhimer, a plastic surgeon, mentioned the procedure. I have always hated my neck. It doesn't matter how thin I get, I've never had any definition and never liked my profile because of it. I would love to seriously consider a neck lift, but since I've never won the lottery, that's out for me...

53 Years Old Receives an Awesome Mommy Makeover with Breast Reduction from Dr. Maxhimer! - Boulder, CO

I never thought I would have an opportunity to correct some of life's challenges. Having 2 kids with complications long ago separated my abdominal muscles. Reductions in weight over the last few years left hanging skin folds. Large breasts since childhood caused deep grooves in my shoulders, neck challenges, and headaches. Dr. Maxhimer helped change all that. He repaired my abdominal...

Breast Implant Removal. - Boulder, CO

My breast implants were over 20 years old. The right implant had ruptured and I decided to have both removed without replacement. I received excellent care throughout the process. Love the results and very happy with my decision. No complications after the procedure and felt great the second day after surgery.

The Only Good Thing About Breast Cancer is New Boobs. Boulder, CO

After being diagnosed with bi-lateral breast cancer at age 42, a double mastectomy was the recommended treatment. Dr. Maxhimer performed my breast reconstruction and I would endorse him for anyone in a similar position. He was a steady presence for me during a time of unpredictability and emotional turmoil.

57 Years Old with a Double Chin - Boulder, CO

I had a series of injections in my neck, it did burn a little bit but it only lasted for a few minutes. My neck was swollen and a bit firm for a couple of weeks however not so much that I needed any down time. After the swelling went down I have seen a noticeable improvement after just one treatment. I am very pleased with the results.

39 Year Old Breast Cancer Patient with Reconstruction Surgery-implant Placed - Boulder, CO

While in hindsight I may have not made such a drastic decision to have a double mastectomy for dcis, I couldn't have been happier with my plastic surgeon, Justin Maxhimer, who was by my side through the entire ordeal. He has a very skilled set of hands, does wonderful work and most importantly, cares about his patients and listens, more so than probably any other doctor I've ever worked with.

68Yrs Old to GetRid of DroolingDown theSides of myMouth, CreatingSores onBothSides of myLips. SoresWere Chronic, Pa. Boulder, CO

While getting my lips lifted I asked for a chin tuck. No more drooling and lots of compliments. Considering that I had 5 hours of surgery, recovery was two weeks with very little discomfort. If I needed any other Plastic surgery I would only go to Dr. Maxhimer. Swelling and bruising was minimal. Two weeks before the surgery I was put on a regimen of vitamins to decrease swelling and bruising....

Drooling - Boulder, CO

At 68 gravity had pulled my lips so far down I drooled. The chronic resulting sores made me decide to consult a plastic surgeon. Recommended to Dr. Maxhimer by my doctor, I consulted him at Boulder Plastic Surgery. At my age I follow my instincts and felt very confidant with Dr. Maxhimer and went ahead. I also asked for a chin tuck. Once I was having my lips lifted it seemed the smart thing...
