5 out of 5 stars Hair Loss Treatment

54 Yr Old Female with Hair Loss - Cary, NC

Noticed my hair was thinning on the top and became very concerned. Dr. Surowitz checked to make sure there was nothing medically wrong and discussed my options with me. We decided to use the laser cap and Rogaine. I feel Dr. Surowitz had my best interest in mind and that he truly cared about my issue and concerns. He was very patient with me and all my questions and fears.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

44 Years Old and Not Able to Breathe Well. Cary, NC

I was nervous because I was not sure how it would look when it was done. I also was not sure if my breathing would be better. I was concerned about the possibility of using ear or rib cartilage. It turned out I did not have to use my ear or rib cartilage. Things went very well. My nose looks better, and more importantly, I can breathe better. My nose would collapse before when I would...

5 out of 5 stars Lower Face Lift

Lower Face and Neck Lift - Cary, NC

I disliked the nasal-labial lines and sagging under my chin. Dr. Surowitz was very considerate and helpful in describing all my options and telling me what to expect. He and I worked together to determine the exact procedures that would produce the results I wanted, and I am very happy with the results. It was definitely worth the cost and temporary discomfort; I'm glad I did it.

5 out of 5 stars Mohs Surgery

Mohs Reconstruction - Cary, NC

I had significant Mohs surgery on right cheek. Dr. Surowitz decided a flap was the best option. Dr. Surowitz followed me closely after the procedure. In addition to my regular appointments, he was willing to see me when I had questions during the healing process. I was very pleased with my care. It was an emotional year for me, but I am pleased with the result. I had a significant Mohs...

5 out of 5 stars Facial Reconstructive Surgery

Reconstruction After MOHS - Cary, NC

I had a basal cell carcinoma on my nose. After the MOHS procedure to remove the tissue, I had a "large" open wound and the only way to repair it was reconstructive surgery. I believe it was very successful and someone who doesn't know what I had done, would never know. I am very happy with the results.

5 out of 5 stars Facial Reconstructive Surgery

Repaired Nasal Stenosis - Cary, NC

I think the surgery went well and I am healing great. I would definitely recommend Dr Surowitz to any one who is needing facial surgery. He was very concerned about my feeling comfortable with my healing process and answered any questions I had as time went on. I am so impressed with how well I have healed from such an invasive surgery I had prior to his reconstruction. I could not be any...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

67 Years Old, Female Hispanic Needing a Refresh Look to Attend the Wedding of a God'sdaughter - Raleigh, NC

Though I am a grandmother very aware of the possible negative sides effects of Botox, I took the risk of having Botox injections around my eyes and forehead to improve my looks. The surgeon was amazingly caring, competent and very professional and the procedure was done with satisfactory results.....not startled or unnatural....I was satisfied.

5 out of 5 stars Mohs Surgery

Surgery Closure. Raleigh, NC

I had MOHs surgery done at Cary Skin Center around my upper lip . The surgeons there did not feel like they could perform the closure so they recommended Dr. Surowitz. The greatest idea ever. He described in detail and by sketch what he planned to do. My mustache grew back perfectly and no one can even tell. Amazing. He is an awesome surgeon and the Triangle area will miss him tremendously.

5 out of 5 stars Voluma

58 Years Young - Cary, NC

If you are going to have anything injected into your face, choose a good plastic surgeon that you can trust. Dr. Surowitz is highly professional surgeon who cares about his patients and his work. He listened carefully to my concerns and answered all my questions. He suggested using Voluma and Restylane. I was too afraid of the pain, he used a cream to help numb the area. The treatment was...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

49 Year Old, Needed a Face Tune Up! - Cary, NC

I will be turning 50 soon, and I'm starting to show wrinkles around my eyes. I want my face to reflect how young I feel! I have been doing Botox treatments for a couple years, and love the results. I don't like needles, but I am provided a cream to numb the areas so I wouldn't feel anything. The numbness wears off in about 30 minutes. After having Botox, you need to make lots of facial...
