5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Great Facelift - Sarasota, FL

Dr. Holcomb is amazing – I felt very comfortable with him he always let me know upfront what was going on and what was best for me. He’s VERY honest. I’d recommend Dr. Holcomb to ANYONE. The whole experience was fabulous!!! So I went to Dr. Holcomb for a partial facelift, necklift; I had my eyelids done and injections in my lips. Dr. Holcomb and his staff were very...

I Get Many Compliments - Tampa, FL

Dr. Holcomb was very genuine about my expectations, and they have been fulfilled. We did a Lower Blepharoplasty, Neck Lift, and a Facelift with CO2 Laser Treatment and I’ve had lots and lots of compliments since I went there. I look younger and my skin is so much better. His office is comfortable, it’s private, and it’s beautifully decorated. Dr. Holcomb is realistic and he is meticulously dressed all the time. He’s on the cutting edge of everything and it’s all new and up-to-date. These things are important to me because I’m in the business world. It was a very wonderful experience just to be in his office and be a patient of his. He also has excellent staff members.

5 out of 5 stars AccuLift

Acculift for my Eyes - Tampa, FL

Dr. Holcumb treated my chin and lower face with Acculift, and treated the delicate skin around my eyes with a laser. I also received dermal fillers through injections to my lips. Though it’s only been a month since these procedures, I already notice the results. I liked the fact that I got to be fitted with a compression bandage rather than surgical drains. My surgery was over 6 hours long,...

Excellent Doctor - Tampa, FL

The office was so quiet and calming and Dr. Holcomb spoke very calmingly when I first met him. I felt like I had a lot of faith in him right off the bat and I knew I really wanted him to do a facelift on me. I truly think he’s an excellent doctor who understands. I’m so happy with my neck and my chin. The jowls are gone and no lines in my neck. It’s as smooth as can be!

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Rhinotip Procedure - Sarasota, FL

My rhinotip procedure looked worse than it really was. Compared to the other surgeries I’ve had, this was totally fine. You get the black and blue eyes and you get bruising, but within a few days everything starts coming down. It definitely looks worse than it feels; so if you see pictures, don’t be scared because it doesn’t feel that way. My results were more than I had expected and Dr....

Laser Work and Facelift - Sarasota, FL

It’s been a month since I had a Forehead Lift and laser work on my face and I feel fantastic. I love the way that my skin looks and how the wrinkles were removed, which was my primary concern. I was very impressed with Dr. Holcomb’s qualifications and his education, as well as his assistants and associates. They were gracious, polite and knowledgeable, which was important to me. If...

5 out of 5 stars Ear Surgery

I Felt So Comfortable with Dr. Holcomb - Sarasota, FL

I previously had a bad surgery behind both my ears and when it was healing I started to get really bad scars. They kept getting bigger and bigger to the point where I couldn’t even lay my head on the pillow at night. Dr. Holcomb was able to clear all of the tissue in the back and smooth it out. The pain is completely gone. He was willing to take care of the problem, and he did a wonderful job. I was very afraid to go back in and have plastic surgery because of what I went through, but I had felt so comfortable with Dr. Holcomb. Anything that I would do in the future, I have no questions about going back to him. I think he is very good at anything he does.

After Much Searching I Chose Dr Holcomb - Sarasota, FL

I went for three consultations before I ended up with Dr. Holcomb. I had seen results of other people at Dr. Holcomb’s office and felt he was the best compared to the other two doctors. There’s a list of things that I could’ve had done, but what I liked about him is he decided to do what worked best for me at the time. I am 59 going on 60 and this facelift procedure literally...

Beautiful Results - Sarasota, FL

I recently had the hydrafacial done at Holcomb Facial Plastic Surgery with the esthetician, Jocelyne. I wound up buying the series and I loved it, and I love the beautiful results. The whole office is very compassionate; it’s such a different environment than walking into another plastic surgeon’s office.

Rhinoplasty- I've Waited 10 Years to Have This Done. Sarasota, FL

During the consultation, he took his time with me and he made me feel comfortable. He’s very easy-going, laidback, friendly and professional.
