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.

Loving the results of my Septorhinoplasty!!

Hello, My name is Samantha and this is my experience with Dr. Hilger and Facial Plastic surgery., Back in 2001, I broke my nose in basketball. I had an open reduction of my nasal fracture. As the years followed, I had significant obstruction of airway and my entire septum had shifted to the right. I also had a nose piercing which caused the left side my nasal bone to depress inward which brought on many insecurities with how I looked considering both of these things going on at the same time. I did my research and read so much about Dr. Hilger specializing in revision rhinoplasties and just knew he was the one to help me. I am now 16 days post op and even tho I have a little swelling left, which is completely normal, I am loving the results of my new nose. My nose is straight and my nostril is no longer caved in. I can look in the mirror and feel so pleased with how I look and the results. Dr. Hilger and Dr. Kelts are the most comforting, well trained, highly educated, delightful physicians I have ever met and did a wonderful job repairing my crooked nose. His secretary/assistant Lin was also comforting and helpful in answering questions and just being there for me when I was nervous about the whole procedure. I know this was the best decision of my life chosing Dr. Hilger and his staff and would recommend Facial Plastic Surgery to everyone. I cant thank them enough and want to Thank each of them individually for changing my life and making this the best possible experience for me. THANK YOU!!!!

Fantastic, Talented, & Experienced Surgeon

Dr Hilger is phenomenal. He took on my reconstructive septo-rhinoplasty following a serious injury. I had multiple past surgeries on my nose which made things very complicated (scar tissue and little original structure to work with). A 1.5 hour surgery became a 4 hour reconstruction with donor cartilage grafts. I am so very grateful to him for helping me. Being board certified in facial plastics and ENT coupled with decades of experience makes him second to none in this area. Highest recommendation possible. Thank you.

I am very pleased with my surgical results and the overall care that I have received with Dr. Hilger and his specialized staff.

Five Stars

Dr. Hilger, and his staff were Awesome. I had Mohs surgery done at another facility for some cancer I had by my eye. It was so close to my eye that I thought I would have to have major surgery to repair. Dr. Hilger was able to avoid my tear ducts and repair the damage that was done by the Moh's surgery. I am amazed and thankful that no one can tell that I had cancer or surgery. . I would highly recommend Dr. Hilger.
