OMG....even I can’t believe the results. I love saying it "I LOOK FANTASTIC"! I was hesitant at first about going under the knife. I consulted with 3 doctors and went with Dr. Palaia. He was confident which made me feel comfortable and had a great reputation plus he worked out of a hospital and not an off-site facility. I took the bandages off after a week and couldn’t believe my eyes. It's like a lost 25 years. Minimal scars up and around in only a week. I'm over the moon happy.
I was not only satisfied with the outcome, but also with the service. Dr. Palaia and his staff were very friendly. He took the time to answer all my questions and concerns before the surgery. I was impressed with how well he followed up with me after the surgery; making sure everything was going well with my recovery. He is an excellent and caring doctor. I would highly recommend him!
IT IS TRULY DIFFICULT TO FIND THE WORDS TO FULLY EXPRESS HOW AMAZING I FEEL AND HOW HAPPY I AM WITH MY NEW YOUNGER LOOK. DR. PALAIA AND HIS STAFF ARE EXTREMELY KIND AND THEY MAKE YOU FELL VERY RELAXED. DR. PALAIA DID AN AMAZING JOB WITH MY FACE LIFT AND I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER. IT HAS ONLY BEEN 3 WEEKS SINCE MY SURGERY AND I HAVE HAD VERY LITTLE BRUISING. i WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. PALAIA TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND RELATIVES, SOME ARE ALREADY MAKING AN APPOINTMENT TO MEET WITH HIM.
I was not pleased with first augmentation done by another surgeon, my left breast was much lower than the right. I consulted with Dr. Palaia, he and his staff were compassionate and understanding of my condition. I had a wonderful experience through the consultation, hours before the procedure and after the procedure. I LOVE MY RESULTS! (post op 6 months) I would highly recommend Dr. Palaia for any surgical procedure you need.
Dr. Palaia is extremely professional and is a master of his craft. His nurses and other employees are also extremely professional. I recommended Dr. Palaia to everyone I know. He performed a Blepharoplasty on me and I look amazing. I also had botox injections for unwanted wrinkles... Dr. Palaia knew exactly where to put the botox to be wrinkle free.
