5 out of 5 stars Radiesse

I Was Never So Pleased with the Results. - Middleton, WI

Initially had Juvaderm and Radiesse by an RN at another center. This nurse did an extremely poor job and sought help to correct the obvious flaws. Dr Parfitt was realistic and gave alternatives. Glad I went with him.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Excellent Experience and Results

I had a facelift and an upper bleph at the same time. I received excellent instructions (verbally and printed) before my surgery so I knew how to plan and what was to be expected. I was under 'conscious sedation' for the procedure and spent 2 nights in Dr. Parfitt's facility. My 2 night stay was comfortable and staff was attentive to my needs. I did end up with a hematoma (in front of one ear)...

Dr Parfitt Reputation and Results Make Him an Easy Choice - Middleton, WI

I had a great experience and great results. I would highly recommend Dr. Parfitt to anyone thinking of facial plastic surgery. I had skin laxity on my upper eye lids and loose, crinkled skin under my eyes, but not anymore! Dr Parfitt and his staff were competent, knowledgable, attentive, and made me feel very at ease.

5 out of 5 stars Cheek Augmentation

Best Investment in Plastic Surgery Cheek Implants

I had the classic cute very deep dimples heart shaped face when I was younger, which was great because it always made me look younger, but seemingly overnight, at age 40, I started to lose that youthful fat layer on my upper cheeks (I am told this is normal), which with my small jaw, caused a "flattening" of my cheeks below my eyes, leading to slight jowling on either side of my chin...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

4 months postop

I'm 25 and have always been bothered by my nose. It has a hump and a wide bridge. In some pictures it looks like Mr. Potato Head, where it's like a triangle from head-on. Not good. I always am self-conscious with pictures too because I have to try and angle my head at a way where my nose doesn't look gigantic. I finally researched and found a doctor I really trust so schedule the surgery for...

5 out of 5 stars Hyaluronidase

Hyaluronidase To The Rescue! - Middleton, WI

I went to a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon back in Sept of 2011 to have surgery in the under-eye area to remove some saggyness and slight bags that had begun to worsen, This "doctor", without my knowledge or consent, put filler in my under eye area in addition to tightening the corners of my eye to reduce the saggy appearance. Within three days of that surgery, my under eye area was so...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty Was Totally Worth It - Madison, WI

I had my 9 month post op visit with my surgeon, Dr. Parfitt today and I could not be happier. Combined with my face lift a year ago (with a different surgeon) I think I took at least 10 years off my age. I am 51 years old and I wish I had had the rhino years ago! My recovery was completely unremarkable. I was back to work 2 weeks after the rhinoplasty and 2 1/2 weeks after my facelift.

4 out of 5 stars Non Surgical Nose Job

Swelling After Restylane Injections? - Madison, WI

Pros - Quick, painless, fairly happy with the results, affordable, wonderful doctor, nice results, took only about 5 minutes! Have some filler left for future touch-ups Cons - not permanent, swelling? I had a non-surgical nose job less than 48 hours ago. Restylane was injected to smooth out some bumps on the left side of my nose. I am a little worried because now the left side of my...

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Excellent Doctor - Madison, WI

I went to him about 6 years ago for filler and he told me that I did not need a lift or any surgery at that time. Just went back this week for Juvederm and now I am looking at doing a full face lift and rhinoplasty. The Juvederm will get me through the holidays at least. I chose to have the injections without lidocaine and it was completely bearable, at lest for me. I have a bit of bruising on...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Happy with my New Nose - Rhinoplasty - Appleton, WI

Wanted my nose shortened and narrowed. Dr. Parfitt did a great job! My nose looks so much better. I wish I had done it sooner! Some bruising under the eyes after surgery, but that's normal & went away in a week. There was absolutely no pain! Would definitely have him perform any additional cosmetic facial surgery. Highly recommend.
