Face Lift of Nancy 2.0

Everyone who knows Dr. Karolak knows that he is kind, caring and extremely capable. I felt at ease from the first time that I met him. It is apparent that he loves what he is doing, and that he is a "people person". I feel so fortunate to have found him and to have found Reflections.

5 out of 5 stars Lower Face Lift

70 Year Old Unhappy with Lower Face and Neck

Dr. Karolak takes surgery to the artist level. He can see what you are unhappy with and corrects it in a natural way leaving you looking refreshed. His personal demeanor is humble and caring. He is truly one of a kind in a world of ego driven plastic surgeons. His only objective is to make you look like the best version of yourself....and he did that!

I cannot be happier :)

I just want to shout out big THANK YOU to Dr. Karolak. I cannot be happier with my facelift. The only one thing I regret is not doing earlier. I went for many consultations with different plastic surgeons, and boy....... am I happy that on the end I found Dr. Karolak and decided to get one last consultation. After I met him and his stuff (Michelle, Paula - you girls are great ) , I knew...

Perfection with Fillers - Bridgewater, NJ

Dr Karolak is the best! I've seen him about 5 times for filler in my lips, marionette lines and undereye hollows. My face has undergone an amazing transformation, while still looking like myself. Dr Karolak makes you feel so comfortable and is conservative in his approach, you never have to worry that the procedure won't be anything but perfect! He has an excellent eye and vision. I'm so...

5 out of 5 stars Lower Face Lift

Help Needed for Lower Face, Fillers No Longer the Answer

Dr. Karolak embodies the qualities I was seeking--highly skilled, a perfectionist, sincere concern for well-being of his patients, great follow-up, and even a good sense of humor!

5 out of 5 stars Fat Transfer

Loving my Mirror!

Dr. Karolak truly knows faces!! He is a top surgeon and my whole experience with him and his staff was so easy! Would highly recommend this Dr. for any facial procedure. He is constantly in touch with you after the surgery and gives you his cell number. What more can I say? Love him.

5 out of 5 stars Microneedling

Amazing

Dr Karolak is truly the best in the business. After losing a significant amount of weight twice, I lost a lot of volume in my face. On top of that, I had acne scarring. He recommend the RF micro needling along with fillers and my face has regained its volume and the scarring is noticeably better. I am so grateful to him and his team. He really helped me regain confidence and I HIGHLY recommend...
