Kyle Shaddix, MD

5 out of 5 stars

I visited Dr. Shaddix for a facelift/necklift consultation. While I ended up choosing to travel, Dr. Shaddix is a saint. His work's beautiful, he spent an hour speaking with me (very rare!) He had the bedside manner of an old friend, but his work is amazing. I would not hesitate to see him for future procedures. I just could not resist the travel! READ MORE

42, MWL, Lower Facelift and Necklift. Taking the Plunge to Become a Harley Honey w/Biltmore Lift!

I had quite a few consults and did not want to travel, but Dr. Harley's work and bedside manner just made me take the plunge. He is the sweetest and most personable doctor and his work speaks for itself. I had 4 consults and he was my choice. I am starting to jowl and get the turkey gobbler. NOPE! I am not going down like that. I have a younger husband and am not ready to head into his midlife... READ MORE

41-year-old Ready for Better Nose and Better Breathing!

Went in for consultation with Dr. Jack Kotlarz a few days ago. Like other reviewers have noticed, he is direct and does not sugarcoat what is needed. I told him about my issues with sinus blockage, congestion and also my unhappiness with my large nose and projection and he cut right to the chase. He told me it was going to be all about the balance between aesthetic and functionality. He said... READ MORE

Breast Lift and Implant Revision, 41-years-old. Post MWL, Skin Quality Issues, out of Town Traveling to - Miami, FL

Dr. Freiman did my Mommy Makeover last June. From the onset, my asymmetry was obvious. However, Dr. Frieman was conservative and thoughtful. He allowed me a year to heal and settle. After contacting him that the asymmetry was still severe, he stood behind his work and is revising the breast lift for free. I am paying extra to get bigger implants now that my chest is stretched from previous... READ MORE

40-years Old 120 Lb Weight Loss, 5 Children Later/Time for an Overhaul - Miami, FL

I have lost a lot of weight and still want to lose around 20 lbs. I am 5'7 3/4 and 185 lbs. I look good at 165 and don't want to have more loose skin so this is my stop point.

Nursing 5 children and... READ MORE

Consultation Only - still awaiting procedure

I booked a consultation with Dr. Bolling for my mother and self. I planned to get a facelift for my mother for her birthday. While I was in there, I asked him about his fillers and rates and he told me if I was going to continue to get Juvaderm I would be money ahead to get a fat transfer. He looked me over and told me it would be $1800 but I would have to wait until around May or June when my... READ MORE

Thank you so much for this review. I have been looking at this and your review helps me make an informed decision! READ COMMENT

Lifting you up and sending positive vibes your way. Your body has been a warrior and just needs a little extra R&R. I won't lie, I was dragging butt the first few weeks. I will have to check that movie out. Heard good things about it. READ COMMENT

You are more than welcome. I like Systane Refresh or sport for the day and Systane ointment or gel for night. The gel will make you blur, but at night you need something thicker to get you through. Also, you can get sleep goggles online... READ COMMENT

Hey Kathy, I had eyelid surgery in April and am having trouble with my left eye. Are you having trouble with complete blinking or being told your eye is open when you sleep? Also, are you using eye drops for dry eyes, like gel drops?... READ COMMENT

Hoping all goes well. So far it looks a lot better! READ COMMENT
