Are you a patient of Scott K. Thompson, MD?
5 out of 5 stars Facelift
I researched for a long time before I chose Dr. T because I wanted someone with an expertise in the face. I hit the jackpot and couldn't be happier with the results and the whole experience. I now have Dr, Thompson do all of my fillers and Botox now also because of how much I like and trust him.
5 out of 5 stars MACS Facelift
Dr.Thompson made me feel safe and confident in his skills. He was very professional. Not pushy and answered all my questions. He was very caring and I appreciated him giving his cell phone number in case of an emergency,
5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery
I went to Dr. Thompson for eye lid surgery because he had removed a cancerous tumor from a family members face. For the vast amount of surgery they needed you can hardly tell or see much scaring. This sold me.
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Dr. Thompson was very professional and courteous. He answered all of my questions and gave me his professional and honest opinion on how he thought my procedure would go and how my nose would look when after I was healed up. He was very thorough and great with everything. I will for sure be going back for anything else I need done and would recommend Dr. Thompson to anyone wanting to be in good hands.
5 out of 5 stars Ear Surgery
I heard about Dr. Thompson from a member of my family. I gave him this rating based on my experience with other plastic surgeons. This is the second cyst I've had removed by a plastic surgeon and it was a MUCH better experience than the first. Dr. Thompson and his team are very friendly and professional. I especially appreciate the time he spent with me. I was in town over the holidays and he removed a cyst from behind my ear. I live in California and haven't been impressed with the type of care I have received here. Dr. Thompson is definitely a gem. I will schedule any addition cosmetic procedures when I'm in town!
5 out of 5 stars Botox
I choose Dr. Thompson by speaking with one of his staff at my local beauty salon. They have never disappointed me in service. He is very attuned to insuring one's face looks natural after enhancements. I appreciate that and have recommended him to several friends and family members. He has been upfront and honest with me regarding my concerns. He has given me options that I would not have known about which saved me $$$$. The staff is friendly and greet and know me by my first name. I would highly recommend!!!!!
5 out of 5 stars Botox
I chose Dr. Thompson when my previous plastic surgeon stopped doing Botox procedures himself, having a technician do the work. It turned out just awful. Dr. Thompson is professional, caring and the results are awesome. I appreciate that he does the procedures himself and does not have a technician or colleague preform the applications like other plastic surgeons I have gone to. He and his staff do many things to make products affordable. Ei: rebates, product promotion certificates, and birthday perks! Very accommodating, friendly staff...Thanks!
5 out of 5 stars CO2 Laser
I visited with him twice prior to making my decision to be certain. Dr. Thompson explained everything In detail during the procedure, he asked me how I was handing the laser, if I was feeling ok and his staff explained my after care and were always very willing to answer all my questions and assure me that my post laser experiences were normal ! I have complete confidence in Dr Thompson and his staff, as well as the utmost trust. I can't be happier with a doctor than I am with Dr Thompson.
5 out of 5 stars Botox
Dr Thompson is the most caring doctor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Once again, Thanks to you and your staff! One of the things that made my experience so positive, is Dr. Thompson. He is a kind, compassionate man. He advised me in my treatment. His office staff is outstanding and always make me feel important. Thank You Dr Thompson, it has been a pleasure working with you. Insurance does not pay a thing, so I have to save my $ which is not cheap :-) but i feel good about myself and the way I look.
5 out of 5 stars Lip Surgery
I was referred to Dr. Thompson by a family practice physician. His care was impeccable.

June 6, 2017 Botox is officially FDA approved for use between the brows, in the forehead, and most recently in 2013, for crow’s feet or lines around the eyes. While specified for those areas, Botox has many more uses for medical purposes and anti-aging. Botox works well to smooth wrinkles and is often used preventatively to keep them from forming. One popular use is Botox for the neck bands that tend to become noticeable over time as the platysma muscle weakens. Botox can be i...

More men are turning to facelift surgery to help them stay competitive in the workforce and advance in their careers. This a trend that many doctors are noticing worldwide. Facelifts for men help define the neck and jawline and can turn the clock back up to ten years. Dr. Huang in Singapore reports, “The reasons men decide to have something done (to their faces) are similar to why women do them – such as to improve self-image and boost self-confidence.” This seems to impact males...
