5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Cannot Wait Until Next Week!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Fort Lauderdale, FL

Wonderfully competent surgeon who is very good at FL's. His staff is happy. That tells you a lot. Go see him for any face work. I am not privy to his skill in any other body parts, but I can imagine he is just as competent. Top notch. And by the way, if I could give him more than 5 stars for bedside manner I would. He is a nice guy.

Great Blepharoplasty Experience - Fort Lauderdale, FL

Dr Thomassen is a fine surgeon. He will spend his time answering all of your questions. No one in the office makes any attempt to give the hard sell to have other procedures performed. The office staff that I had contact with, Michelle and Vera (I think), were cheerful, helpful, and not the least bit pushy. The overall experience was wonderful.

4 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Pleasantly Surprised- Fort Lauderdale, FL

Very pleasant and always willing to answer questions and concerns in a very knowledgable manner. I chose him due to his high reviews amongst past clientele. My only complaint so far was the wait time the day of my procedure ran over by about 1 or 2 hrs due to him running late with another patient, other than than a great dr.

51 Yerd Old, Droopy Eyelids Made Me Look Tired - Fort Lauderdale, FL

If I could give this doctor 10 stars, I would. Dr. Thomassen is very knowledgeable, gentle and caring. His team is courteous, competent and pleasant. I have not had a doctor of this caliber in long, long time. He definitively puts his patients and the patient’s needs first. Could not have asked for a better experience. I highly recommend Dr. Thomassen.

Lower Lid Pinch Review - Fort Lauderdale, FL

1. Done under local anesthesia, which brings the cost down but also means that you hear everything: the skin cutting, the cauterizing. It takes about one hour per eye. 2. My surgeon also relocated fat pads; it makes sense to do this at the same time, and is a straight-forward cut and tuck. But, this means that instead of just a skin pinch, you have your lower lid skin stretched and trauma...
