3 out of 5 stars Brow Lift
I had a direct brow lift a couple months ago with Dr. Mitchell. It was done in house under local anesthesia. The proceure itself was fine, and the nurse tooo great care getting me prepped and then even taking me home afterwards (I insisted on calling an Uber but she preferred to drive me), which I thought was incredibly sweet. It is too soon to comment on the results, I am happy my eyes have...
Excited to enhance my smile. My upper lip has always been bigger than my bottom lip, in addition uneven and covering my smile. People would always ask me why I don't smile (showing my teeth) and I would have to explain my lips are too big. I'm excited to be able to show a genuine smile! I'll try to keep updated my review with photos and videos! Hopefully this can help others. A lot of...
I've booked my lip lift for December 12th. I have 20mm and I'm hoping to be able to reduce it to by 8-9mm to 1.1-1.2. I can see from other's experience that there is a few mm stretching to be expected. And I'm hoping, even with this, I will get a good result. I have spent alot of time researching this procedure and analyzing pictures and I can summarize for Realself what I've found. Hoping...

I was not planing to do a public review, but after spending hundreds and hundreds of hours on this web-site and being very grateful to all of you who did this before me and helped me get the courage to finally do this, I decided to share my experience here. Having spent so much time on this site, I was well prepared for my procedure and knew what to expect - more or less. The only piece of the...
5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery
I've always had hooded eyes but as I turned 40 they started to age me where I was always wearing dark makeup to try and camouflage it. Dr. Mitchell caught my eye with his upper eyelid special of 1349 when Dr. Higgins wanted 2700. I felt the normal apprehension that the deal was to good to be true and perhaps there was a reason. The truth is Dr mitchell does so many of these surgeries he has a...

Revision Facelift, 16 Month Post Op. :-( a Lot of Research, I Found a Great All Around Ps - Henderson, NV
At 61 years old my face started to get lax with heavy jowls making me look unhappy. The look actually did influence how I felt. Research and thinking, thinking, thinking. Finally got the nerve up to talk it over with my husband. He gave me full support but didn't see what I was seeing. I got the facelift but it left me with more distinct chipmunk cheeks and two more distinct neck bands. Long...

I am very satisfied with my outcome. I am happy to refer my family and friends to...
5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery
The procedure was needed to achieve full vision again. My eye lids were sagging and blocking my vision. The procedure was simple and pain free. Dr. Mitchell was professional at all times. I would recommend this procedure to all who suffer from sagging eye lids. Dr. Mitchell made the experience as easy as possible with home delivery for the pharmacy so privacy was of the upmost importance. ...

I do not employ medical assistants or cosmetic surgery consultants to perform the initial interview or evaluation. I personally consult with each patient and discuss his or her options after obtaining a history and performing a physical examination. With that in mind, if you have scheduled a consultation and for any reason cannot...
