Have you seen Dr. Michael J Olding?
A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. Michael J Olding - Posted on December 5th, 2017
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!

I searched for almost a year before deciding to have Dr. Michael Olding perform my face and neck lift. I experienced virtually no pain and did not have to take any prescribed medication. I was actually playing tennis 13 days after my procedure, since I healed so quickly. I have recommended Dr. Olding to countless people and I would not hesitate to use Dr. Olding's services in the future.

This is one of the best doctor I have ever met. He is professional, competent and extremely focused in making sure all the process is flawless. I had a breast reduction done and he did an absolutely amazing job. He was careful to the healing process and made sure everything went as expected. His staff is also very helpful, they helped all the way with insurance issues, appointments etc. They actually answer the phone and call you back whenever you need it. You do really have the feeling they are there to help you through all the process. I would recommend this doctor and his staff with no hesitation.

I had a jaw and neck lift two weeks ago. Dr. Olding and his team prepared me very well to understand the surgical procedure and the following recuperation. From start to finish, the level of care, expertise and professionalism were top rate. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Olding to people. He is a charming, confident and empathetic physician and person.

Dr. Olding and his staff are amazing at their jobs and made me comfortable with understanding my surgery. I had slightly tuberous breasts and Dr. Olding was able to take me from a small B to a full D all while making it look very natural. He was very straightforward and never once misled me concerning the difficulties with my breast shape. I recommend him to any woman looking to move forward with breast augmentation surgery.
A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. Michael J Olding - Posted on June 5th, 2013
I visited the office early in the new year as part of a resolution. I was looking forward to it and his staff was extremely helpful. The doctor showed up 50 mins after my schedule apt, rarely looked me in the eye, was extremely arrogant and laughed at several of my questions. I was discussing three potential treatments, and he was dismissive and disinterested in two of them, even though a friend recommended him for these procedures. At one point, when I asked a question he seemed to pretend he did not hear it and left the room. I was shocked. I have since had the surgeries performed by another doctor and feel I made the right choice for me. If the doctor is a jerk, he is not the doctor to work on your face!

There is no finer plastic surgeon than Dr. Olding. He is consummate professional, and artist and achieves world renowned results. His work is natural - no wind tunnel or scary results. He will not just "do" what a patient asks - he explains what procedures will work, pros and cons and what to expect. His staff is topnotch and caring and supportive.
