5 out of 5 stars Nose Surgery

Amazing Surgeon Who I Would Recommned to Anyone. She Changed my Life for the Better! - New York, NY

Dr. Halaas has an amazing aesthetic eye and is the most caring surgeon. She listens to what you want and has excellent recommendations. I met with her and really did not know what I needed. She recommended a rhinoplasty to refine my nose and a blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to take away the heaviness of my eyelids. It was the greatest thing I ever did. The improvement is amazing--it is still me, but just much better. My confidence level has soared and I feel much better about myself. Her staff is great-they really care and take the time to explain everything to you and hold your hand throughout the entire experience. They also can make arrangements to stay with you post procedure. I would recommend Dr. Halaas to anyone I know and I would definitely go back to her for any of my cosmetic needs. She also does a fabulous job with injectables-- I have had Botox and Juvederm from her and she really has a great technique and knows the artistry of it all. She is an honest and ethical doctor and she speaks from the heart and with great knowledge, skill and experience.

5 out of 5 stars Chin Surgery

Patient for Life! - New York, NY

Dr. Halaas has a fantastic bedside manner and is patient, thorough and caring. She always takes her time and makes me look refreshed and youthful without looking unnatural or puffy. She has a unique knack for subtle improvements so I always leave looking like a refreshed younger ME. One of the reasons I chose her for my doctor is that she looks natural and beautiful herself. Some of the other docs I saw looked like they had taken FULL advantage of having access to all those fillers. It's smart advertising for a doctor to keep herself looking vibrant and youthful without overdoing it. She has never once made me feel pressured to have any certain procedure done. She always gives me all of my options and answers all of my questions (and I always have lots of them) so I can decide what's best for me. I've been to other doctors before seeing Dr. Halaas, but none of them made me as comfortable and confident as I am now. I have had only great experiences with her and her staff and I look forward to more.

Best Thing Ever! - New York, NY

I was looking for places to get my nose job I was scared and very nervous. When I came into the office and I met Dr.Halaas I instantly felt comfortable. She's was completely honest with me and told me all of the information I needed to know. Not like other doctors that will B.S you just so they can get your money. It was all worth it.

Fixed a Juvaderm Undereye from a Different Doctor!! - Manhattan, NY

I saw Dr. Halaas today and was so impressed by how personable and friendly she was ( and her staff). She made me feel so comfortable and she spent time looking at my face and weighing my options. She decided to dissolve some overfilled juvaderm done by a different doctor and 4 hours later it's already looking better. Will be going to her for injections from now on!!

5 out of 5 stars Hair Transplant

Mother Nature's Skills and Artistry! -Manhattan, NY

Online google. Dr. Halaas is a dream come true for us who are concerned about hair loss, and her staff are like angles. I had absolutely nothing to worry about as they all are very nurturing and conscientious. They gave me the best advice as to how to go about the procedure as a patient during surgery. This was my first time seeing Dr Halaas, and my first impression upon meeting her for a consultation was that she is very down to earth, caring, a great listener and very interested in my concerns. She explained to me exactly what my options were, what to expect; she made sure she answered all my questions. As a guy concerned about my hair because of the line of work I am in and generally wanted to look my age, she made me feel very comfortable and completely at ease. Her staff impressed me by how experienced they were. They made the experience very relaxing and comfortable and made sure I got home ok. It was like I had my family members taking care of me. I am extremely grateful for that, it's hard to find an ideal situation like that with a doctor and her staff. She is by far the best experience I've ever had with any doctor. I had one hair procedure before with another doctor but I chose Dr. Halaas for my second because she made me feel at ease, she is the best and had great reviews. I took a chance and I'm extremely glad I did with her because she made my hair look natural and as awesome as it did as a teenager. She's a dream and my results are also a dream. I am extremely grateful to her and her staff. I wholeheartedly recommend her. If you are a male looking for a hair surgeon and reading this, you HAVE FOUND your doctor. You will be happy you consulted her!
