I had Dr. Hester do a total face lift over 7 years ago, along with two other friends. I am still having problems with my right eye. I have been to two other plastic surgeons and they do not want to touch the botched up job. He tried to replace the indention with my fat several times but never worked. I was told it is now so close to the nerve it is dangerous to do anything. I would not recommend him for eyes at all. My face was okay. He was the most expensive quote I had gotten. Goes to show you the most expensive is not always the best. I have spent so much time and money trying to correct his mistake.
I am a 21 year old female who came to Dr. Hester for a rhinoplasty. At the consultation meeting, Dr. Hester was patient with all my questions and answered them fully. He and his associate put together a digital rendering of what my new nose was to look like. During the surgery, Dr. Hester made the decision to remove some of my nostrils, as they would flare out otherwise. I do not think anyone without Dr. Hester's expertise and experience would have known to do that, and I would have to have gotten revision surgery. I went home that day. The recovery was almost painless, quicker than expected, and relatively easy. Dr. Hester is no doubt the best doctor in Atlanta and I love my new nose! Not only is he the most seasoned doctor, but he is a genuine, kind person and treated me with respect. He even gave me his cell phone number in case I needed anything while I was away at school. I highly recommend both Dr. Hester and Paces Plastic Surgery, now Emory Aesthetic Center.
