5 out of 5 stars Facelift
I just turned 70 years young and was tired of looking old and worn out. Dr. Mitchell did a mini-face lift for me last month, and the results were fabulous. Oh sure, the usual bruises for a while - I mean, this is quite a surgery - but a month later I looked in the mirror and saw and new me -a young me, the me I know myself to be. This is a compassionate and skillful surgeon who will listen...

I went to Dr. Mitchell for a blehpharoplasty. I am looking for a fresh start, or new beginning in my life. I am really happy with the results. I was also amazed at how compassionate the Doctor and his whole staff was. I am so Happy that I chose to go tp Dr Ryan Mitchell's Office.
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...
Dr Mitchell is amazing. I had a procedure done by him last year and I more than trust him with my face.
I'm going back to Dr Mitchell for a lip lift. He has previously done my upper eyelid lift and filled my under eye hollowness with Belotero (which takes alot of talent to do it right), and cheek filler. All which came out natural and awesome. I enjoy dealing with Dr. Mitchell because he first will tell you of you're a good candidate and why. He seems to genuinely feel excited for the improvement he knows he can make with the surgery and enjoys his work. He's open to hearing my extensive research and concerns, even though some of it may be from other doctor's, he doesn't get offended and actually takes everything I say into account.

Very gentle doctor, light-handed, and easy going. Did not push me into anything, just listened to my concerns and took his time to answer all of my questions before we had a plan. I wish I knew earlier how easy and pretty painless it would be, as I would have done it much earlier. I am very picky, do my research super-meticulously, and I would not hesitate a second to recommend Dr. Mitchell to all of you who are looking for a great, skilled, and capable surgeon to work on your face. As I told Dr. Mitchell, if any other cosmetic surgery (breast implants, liposuction, etc) does not pan out the way we wanted, it would be bad, but it is different as it is covered by clothes; if eye surgery goes bad - it is a disaster, as our eyes are the most prominent thing on our face. No one can afford to have a bad eye job. Therefore, I searched high and low until I found the right surgeon.

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...
Note** Not comfortable posting full photos since this is a public site, but am willing to send photos and videos if you ask. Dr Mitchell has great communication and listening skills. I had a consultation in 2015 and didn't have the time, courage or money for the Rhinoplasty. Once everything got into place I consulted with a few other doctors and with Dr. Mitchell, and ultimately decided to go with him. He has been reassuring in this process and I'm hoping for great results.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants
I am a 28 year old healthy female that has been thinking about getting a breast augmentation procedure done since I was very young. I am not a blessed women with big boobs. I finally started looking into plastic surgery doctors that specialize in the procedure. I scheduled 5 appointments with top doctors all over Las Vegas, and as soon as I met Dr. Ryan Mitchell I knew he was my doctor. From...
5 out of 5 stars Facelift Revision
Revision Facelift, 16 Month Post Op. :-( a Lot of Research, I Found a Great All Around Ps - Henderson, NV
Dr Mitchell examined me and reassured me that I would do fine and he could fix the problem. So sincere. There isn't words good enough to explain how they assured me we were working as a team. They were available 24/7, and made me feel comfortable asking for anything I needed to make me comfortable. I came alone from out of town so the Dr came to my hotel to remove the bandages. Laurita picked me up at my hotel to take me to surgery and also took me back after surgery. They gave me a large gift bag of food and juices. They repeated that if I need anything at my hotel they would bring it to me. Laurita was my main deciding factor in choosing Dr Mitchell as my PS. She could speak so highly of Dr Mitchell's skill and ability to give personal service to their clients. 100% sincere.

The initial consultation for a new patient presenting to my practice is graciously provided free of charge. Each consultation is given a 30 minute time slot. 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...
