5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

You Can Trust Him With Your Feminine Vanity - Layton, UT

For over six months, from my first consult with Dr. Bitner for a rhinoplasty revision, I've been wanting to post a raving review. However, I managed to restrain myself in the realization that his consummate professionalism, stellar aesthetic sensibility, interpersonal prowess, impeccable ethic, and above-and-beyond communication skills were insufficient reason for me to post a compelling...

Otoplatsty/ear Pinning - Layton, UT

Dr. Bitner makes you feel like he cares about you not only as a patient but as a person. He is so kind and you can tell his very passionate about what he does. I would not trust surgery on my face with any other surgeon!

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Worth the Drive to Layton, UT for my New Nose!

I had a deviated septum and went to several plastic surgeon's for consults to make sure I found the best doctor for my needs. Dr. Bitner is beyond smart if you look at all his credentials and has wonderful before and after photos listed online. After my initial consult I knew I wanted him to do the surgery. He is such a great doctor, really listened to my concerns and you can tell he really cares about his patients. He is very down to earth and will answer any and every question you have. I never felt rushed by him and he would explain everything so well. He also had to spend several months working with my insurance company to get the surgery approved which he stayed on top of and I was finally able to get my nose fixed!

Otoplasty Experience - Layton, UT

I'll start off by saying that Dr. B is a very nice and well-mannered guy. However, I had otoplasty performed, hoping to correct my protruding ears, and now, after the procedure, my ears now have a "telephone" look, in which the middle portion is pinned, but the top and bottom portions are still stuck out. It has only been 3 days post-op, but from what I read online, most who...

the new me - Utah

At the tender age of 42 I had already developed jowls, sagging skin around my eyes, lines around my mouth and an over all tired look to my Face. This was all thanks to over 20 years of smoking, working long hours and very dry skin due to genetics ...Well, I quit smoking, I am not working as much (thank you hubby) and I was really tired of looking at my way too old for my age face. I researched...

fantastic! - Layton, UT

I did it for self esteem. I rarely write reviews, but I had such a terrific experience with Dr Bitner and his staff that I just felt compelled to write something.  This was my second time receiving the type of surgery (follicle transplant), so I was already familiar with the general processes.  And, although I was not disappointed with the results the first time, my experience...

My neck and jawline are works of art - Salt Lake City, UT

I can hardly find the words for how amazing, fantastic and life changing my experience was with Dr. Bitner and his staff.

After meeting Dr. Bitner and feeling completely comfortable putting my face in his hands.. I scheduled a surgery date within the week. I model, work in TV and in...
