5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Tremendous! - Aventura, FL

After interviewing several PS, my last consultation was with Dr. Richard Galitz. Soon as I walked out, I knew I had found my plastic surgeon. The photos of his patients were outstanding, natural looking and even recognized some, guaranteeing these were "real" patients of his. Every question and request was answered to my complete satisfaction. The staff is wonderful and Dr. Galitz's warmth immediately put me at ease. Besides his degrees, experience and accolades, Dr. G has a Masters in Art and his artwork hangs in the office. So, an accomplished face and neck plastic surgeon AND an artist. Yep, he was the one. Everyone I speak to asks for his business card, which I give out like candy. Bottom line, I am thrilled about the procedure and Dr. Galitz.

CO2 Fraxel Under my Eyes and on my Neck - Miami

Dr actually spends time with you. He is confident, but not cocky. Capable but not arrogant. Talented but humble. He recommends the right thing for each individual person. I didn't feel like a patient. It's scary getting something done on your face and I was totally confident and excited going into my procedure. The price was right too. Great staff as well.

Best Option for Deviated Septum - Miami, FL

I have been a loyal client of Dr. Galitz for 10 years now. He fixed my deviated septum while giving me a softer, prettier nose at the same time. I was ecstatic when he first fixed the main problem in order for me to breathe better, and then I was extremely impressed and definitely satisfied by the result, cosmetically, after the procedure. I have also had Botox and Dysport from Dr. Galitz....

Did not do a good rhinoplasty , total waste of money

This doctor did not do a good rhinoplasty ; a total waste of my hard earned 7500$. I wanted my bone broken as I had a harsh looking nose with the bone . He did not want to break it , told me I didn't need to . I had to pay another doctor to do it again , in which now looks absolutely amazing .

Facelift and Bleph - Miami, FL

They all had years of experience, board certified, before and after photos and online reviews. All 3 suggested blepharoplasty and a face lift. After visiting with all 3, I decided on Richard M. Galitz of Aventura, FL. The first 2 doctors...

Dermabrasion and Nosril Revision - Aventura, FL

Before seeing Dr. Galitz, I had a nostril reduction performed on my nose with another plastic surgeon in Miami. Unfortunately, the other surgeon used unskillful technique when closing my nostrils up and left me with horrible scarring and uneven nostrils. I did laser treatments and spent a lot of money on scar creams to get no results. I became so depressed and was constantly hiding my face. I...
