5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Superb Doctor

Dr. Phillip Garcia was my surgeon for my face lift. I have had other work done by other surgeons but his place is really special. The staff here makes you feel so welcome and they are all so kind! Dr. Garcia delivered on his promise to make me look younger. I look natural and all of my friends tell me I look 15 years younger. //Pat C.

First-rate Doctor - Neptune Beach, FL

I felt very well cared for, the after care was exceptional. Dr. Phillip gave me all the time I needed during visits, answered all questions, and relieved any anxiousness that I felt. I would highly recommend Garcia Institute to anyone who has even thought about cosmetic surgery, regardless of their location (ex: out of state). It would definitely be worth the trip!

My experience with Dr. Garcia was incredible. He listened to me very carefully and because of that my results exceeded my expectations. Not only do I look 20 years younger but I feel 20 years younger. The kindness and courtesy of Dr. Garcia and his staff is what we hope for during this experience.

Satisfied With Outcome - Neptune Beach, FL

Dr Garcia was very calming/patient and reassuring. The nurse in the OR was terrific! I however would recommend better instructions on post op instructions from the sitter and nurse. Thank goodness Diane went over everything in detail with me before the surgery. Diane also worked with my schedule. She was very kind and receptive to my questions. AC

Delighted With The Result - Neptune Beach, FL

I had a Lifestyle Lift several years ago by Dr. Phillip Garcia. Since then, I have moved to New Orleans and no one can believe that I am 67 years old, thanks to the talent of Dr. Garcia. He was so kind and soft-spoken while performing the surgery that I was totally relaxed and knew the results would be great. Also, Dr. G. is easy on the eyes!!...Brenda D.

Wonderful - Neptune Beach, FL

Excellent treatment, outcome fantastic, subtle difference. Most people think I look younger. My treatment by staff has been excellent and professional and friendly. I received information to keep aware of what to expect after the surgery. The over night was most needed as my husband and I would have needed help. A special thanks to Collen for that TLC.

Rhinoplasty: What a good one entails

Rhinoplasty is the surgical procedure that is designed to improve the external appearance as well as the function of the nose. The nose is arguably one of the most prominent features of the face. As such, any imbalance between the nose and the rest of the facial features will immediately be noticeable and could potentially be disfiguring. Whether lengthening, shortening, narrowing or refining a nose, this challenging procedure is intended to restore balance. As the nose is one of the...

Having answered many patient questions either on different websites or personally, I have found that there are several common threads with the majority of these.

Skin changes are those that occur only on...
