I am a long-time patient of Dr. West. I see her quarterly for my routine maintenance that keeps me looking younger than I am. At each visit, she continues to amaze me. One expects that after years of caring for a patient, a doctor should greet you with a certain level of familiarity. While Dr. West does that with me, she also welcomes me with a compassionate attitude inquiring about any... READ MORE
A few months ago, Dr. Richards performed an arm lift on me. The results are amazing and my recovery was fast and painless. I had read horror stories on Real Self from other people who had this procedure performed by other plastic surgeons, so I was a little afraid to have it done. As with other surgeries performed by Dr. Richards on me, the results exceeded my expectations. I had no... READ MORE
Because of a previous botched eye surgery performed many years ago by another doctor, I was left with multiple functional issues that resulted in severe ectropion and dry eye. While Dr. Cytryn is highly skilled and gifted in cosmetic facial surgery, he is also an expert in repairing eyes that do not function properly. Due to my complicated eye problems, Dr. Cytryn has had to perform several... READ MORE

Her credentials are outstanding, and she has a wonderfully warm yet professional demeanor. She is a perfectionist too, so you can be assured you will get the best results possible. The West...

In addition to weighing in on the surgeon’s experience, skill, and talent, I wanted to ensure the doctor’s staff was competent and professional too. After interviewing several offices, I chose Dr....

My goal is to stay looking good for my age. I want to maintain a natural looking result for as long as possible. I understand that I will eventually need a traditional facelift, but for now, I am satisfied with having a liquid facelift. The great thing about a liquid facelift is the instant results and no recovery period. You do have to return for touchups, but it is worth the cost in time... READ MORE
This doctor transferred fat unevenly to my cheeks. One side was severely lopsided causing my mouth to be crooked. He caused ectropion of both eyes and removed too much skin from my upper eye lids. The lack of skin on my upper lids prevented me from being able to shut my eyes completely or keep them shut when I slept. He cut out my nasal labial folds leaving me with permanent facial scars...
