5 out of 5 stars Restylane

Restalyne for Tear Troughs - Parker, CO

I had had this procedure once before and was unhappy with the results but was determined to find the right Dr. Dr. McCracken uses the Cannula method and I had no bruising at all, slight swelling for a few days which is totally normal. I'm very happy with the results, it took years off my face right away. I'll definitely return.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

73 Yr Old Male - Parker, CO

The doctor was VERY helpful and kind. He was very sensitive to the situation and knew exactly what was needed to bring the help that was needed to solve my problem,

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Botox Keeps Me Looking Young ! Parker, CO

I moved to Parker 2 years ago, I was treated by a Newport Beach Physician. After moving here I was hesitant to be treated not knowing any one in the area. Dr McCracken has exceeded my expectations. He is professional and gentle and his staff is accommodating and kind. And I love my results. He will be performing a brow lift within the next year.

5 out of 5 stars Dysport

Dysport for Crows Feet = GOLD - Lone Tree, CO

I had gotten botox from another doctor and saw zero results (from the treatment I received at that spa, I am pretty sure the botox was diluted) so I waited a few months and went to see Dr. McCracken. He gave me dysport instead and within a couple of days, the crows feet around my eyes were completely gone. His placement was flawless, as he didn't freeze the muscle in such a way that would cause unnatural skin movement around the rest of my eye, and he had a gentle hand. Albeit a bit more expensive in comparison to others in Denver, (and quite a commute down south), you pay for the best and it's completely worth it. When I had my appointment, the doctor seemed a tad tired and rushed, but he was very nice and answered all of my (many) questions, and it did not affect the quality of his work in the slightest. If I hadn't moved to another state, I would definitely be back!!!

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Excellent Experience with Eyelid Reconstructive Surgery with Hard Palate Graft and Skin Graft -Boulder, CO

My optometrist, Dr. Michelle Sancho, recommended that I see him. I consulted with Dr. McCracken to discuss solutions to improve my bilateral eyelid closure approximately 1-1/2 years ago. Two previous surgeons had removed multiple nodules under my eyes, which resulted in inadequate eyelid closure causing medical issues and discomfort. In 2012 Dr. McCracken succeeded in surgically repairing one of my eyelids, and in 2013, he agreed to perform surgery on my other eye, which was in worse condition with very pronounced scar tissue. It’s been two months since Dr. McCracken performed my 2013 surgery, and he is now closely monitoring my healing process, as he did in 2012, to provide the best possible results. I am very appreciative of Dr. McCracken’s outstanding surgical skills and his determination to improve my eyelid closure, which had caused several years of vision problems. I also want to extend my appreciation to his professional staff at McCracken Eye and Face Institute, Ashley, Darchelle, Gail and Alaina. Each are hard-working and very dedicated to providing the best possible experience for Dr. McCracken’s patients. I highly recommend choosing Dr. McCracken for reconstructive and cosmetic eyelid surgery and have been pleased with the surgical outcomes.

5 out of 5 stars Brow Lift

Brow Lift & Upper Eyelid Surgery - Parker, CO

From a lady who works at Costco.

5 out of 5 stars Facial Reconstructive Surgery

Eyelid Reconstruction After MOHS Surgery - Parker, CO

Had a basal cell carcinoma on my left eyelid and had to have MOHS surgery. Needed reconstructive surgery for my eyelid. Received great care and my eyelid looks great.

5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser

Laser Happy - Parker, CO

I wanted to get rid of my fine lines/wrinkles and a few brown spots I had. I am a 50yr old woman who had a full face laser treatment. I am six months out and am loving the results.  It's amazing how it got rid of my fine lines and wrinkles as well as tightening the skin.  I feel I look 10 years younger since the laser.

5 out of 5 stars Facial Reconstructive Surgery

Graves Eye Disease - Parker, CO

Dr M preserved my eyesight when many other people with Graves eye disease have lost their eyesight due to this disease. I can see again and I owe it all to Dr M and his team!

5 out of 5 stars Restylane

Great Results with Under Eye and Lip Fillers - Parker, CO

Dr. M has done an amazing job at filling in my under eyes and nasal folds with Restylane along with Perlane to fill out my lips! Thanks Dr. M
