  • Plastic Surgery

    A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
    Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
    The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

Imperious !!!

I had a consultation with Dr. Olding and will never consider allowing him to operate on me. My first impression was that he could neither choose a proper dentist or hair colorist. His 8 upper teeth were a shocking "blue-white".. I am being snide - now the real problems.. I had several facial reconstruction surgeries from Dr. Scott Spear (he tragically and suddenly passed away in March of 2017 ). As a result of my relationship with Dr Spear, I started working with female cancer patients, referring them to Dr Spear and assisting with " look Good, Feel Good" - a cancer project... Dr Spears passing was dramatic to myself and the many cancer patients awaiting reconstructive procedures. I approached Dr Olding about the possibility of "tweaking" my upper eyelids (I thought this would be a proper way of determining if he was the right Dr. for me ). He was not interested in learning what prior procedures I had, or why. He was pompous, imperious and bent on impressing me with "who he knew". He dismissed my request and stated that what disturbed him about my face was the " distance between the tip of my nose and upper lip ( He had no clue that my lip was a reconstruction made of cadaver tissue, and accused me of having had an "open rhinoplasty"- which I did not ). He stated that "I had a full face" and needed a lower face lift. ( I had a neck and facial liposuction procedure in 1995 ). His fees are comparable to the prices New York "Designer" Dr.s charge and there is no guarantee I would not look like a freak as a result. I left the office feeling like I had made the worst mistake, wasted money on the consultation and very much miss my beloved Dr. Scott Spear..

The best choice

Dr. Michael Olding is honest and upfront. He will tell you that he is going to make you look natural and not overdone. If you are looking for that kind of look, sure there are plenty of surgeons out there. His pedigree is beyond incredible and is accomplishments (over 20 years) are so numerous that it is impossible to list them all here. Rest assured that there is no one I would trust more. I am 57, feel like I am 37 and wanted to look that way again. My lower face lift and neck lift have totally changed my attitude. Beth McCann was indispensable and she was able to talk me through my healing process too.

Dr. Olding and his staff, specifically Beth McCann, are absolutely wonderful! If you are looking for a surgeon who is knowledgeable, professional and honest, I would highly recommend Dr. Olding. He made me feel comfortable throughout the entire experience (consultation through 1-year follow-up) and I could not be happier with the results!

An older male's viewpoint on a neck lift

I am an older male who underwent a direct excision neck lift by Dr. Olding only 3 months ago and even by now there is no trace of a scar on my neck. I was amazed by how easy and painless it was to look decades younger. I should have visited him much sooner than I did!
