5 out of 5 stars Facelift

As a 63 Year Old, I Wanted to "Set the Clock Back" and Still Look Like Myself. I Didn't Want to Look Like a Famous Celebrity!-MA

WOW! Dr. Mao is an amazing cosmetic surgeon. We talked several times before I decided. He listened to my concerns each time and clearly explained what he would do. He didn't try to rush me or push me into other procedures. It was evident to me his goals were the same as mine, which for me was to end up with a refreshed, enhanced appearance that set the clock back in time. My results? I could not be happier!! Dr. Mao did exactly what he said he'd do. I don't look like anyone else! I look like me. The changes are subtle and natural, which is exactly what I wanted. I simply look more refreshed.....and a bit younger as my best friend of 45 years tells me. I'm wearing far less make-up which I need to cover and hide. And best of all, I feel great! I had facial laser resurfacing at the same time and had some hyper-pigmentation in specific areas, which is not so unusual. Dr. Mao was readily available to me at anytime I needed to speak with him. He provided guidance on what products to use and how to care for my face during healing. I did exactly what he recommended and now, 10 weeks later it's just about all vanished. Now if you want to look like Kim Kardashian, I'm sure Dr. Mao can accomplish that for you. That was not for me. Dr. Mao was wonderful to work with and to trust. I also was very impressed with his experienced staff --- very professional, always upbeat and supportive. I am very grateful for his incredible surgical skills in this very competitive area, and highly recommend him!!

Rhinoplasty and Chin Implant

I truly do not have one complaint about Dr. Mao. Not only in his ability as a Doctor but his personality as a whole. He was willing to go above and beyond to make sure I was happy. From the very beginning to now he was there every step of the way. He calmed any fear, he went out of his way to answer any questions pre and post op and he went above and beyond through it all. There is no one else I would trust to do something so big. Not only is Dr. Mao a great Doctor but his bedside manner is truly genuine. He is determined and motivated to make sure that you find the happiness your looking for in your appearance.

Dr. Mao is Simply the Best!!!

From our lengthy first appointment, to our final goodbye, I was able to communicate with Dr. Mao with ease, ask questions (lots and lots of questions) without ever feeling rushed, and move forward with this critical decision with confidence and assurance that I chose the right Doctor. A masterful and methodical perfectionist, Dr. Mao didn't let me down. I would tell anyone considering facial surgery to put your trust in the best, and in my opinion, that person is Dr. Mao.

The gentle humility and quiet confidence of this young physician were initially what drew me to him after witnessing the inflated ego of some other physicians. He is the real deal. His work is his passion and his patients will sell his product/ expertise. I am indebted and grateful.

Deviated Septum, and Reshaping of Nose. Worcester, MA

Dr. Mao was a great doctor and I highly recommend him. He is very professional and always made sure to answer any questions that I had. He responds to emails very promptly and takes his time with his patients I never felt rushed at an appointment. He is a remarkable surgeon and he was sure to make you feel comfortable before and after the surgery.

I Highly Recommend This Gifted, Warm and Caring Plastic Surgeon! - Worcester, MA

After doing much research and reading many reviews of plastic surgeons in my area, I made an appointment with Dr. Mao. It was the best decision I ever made. Dr. Mao is a very talented surgeon. He has a very warm and caring bedside manner. He took as much time as needed to explain procedures, what to expect during recovery and answer any questions, that by the end of my initial visit I...

Took 10+ Years Off My Face! - Worcester, MA

Dr. Mao is absolutely outstanding!

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

24 Year Old, Combination Rhinoplasty and Septoplasty

Dr. Mao is truly a talented and caring surgeon. He specializes only in facial reconstructive and plastic surgery which I believe is crucial to creating consistently beautiful work. Not only is Dr. Mao triple board certified but his gallery has the most natural looking post-op pictures online. He pays attention to detail like no other surgeon I have ever met. Furthermore, his overall personable demeanor makes the experience all the more pleasant and less worrisome. He is always available for questions which in his field of work is no easy feat. My best advice to anyone considering this type of procedure is to go in with realistic expectations. However, Dr. Mao will without a doubt exceed those expectations. Dr. Mao has a strong grasp of how small subtleties can drastically affect the delicate nature of facial balance. He truly is extremely gifted within his field.
