I Don't Look Tired Anymore
“I originally went to Dr. Sandeen to have my marionette lines removed. I knew beforehand he probably would want to fix my neck too. He suggested I have my lower eyes done so I would look refreshed. I had all three done and I'm so glad I listened to him about my eyes. What a difference. I no longer look tired and my neck looks fabulous, as does the rest of my face. Dr. Sandeen answers your questions and explains the procedures perfectly. Follow up visits were on-time and informative about taking care of my incisions. Dr. Sandeen has a very nice sense of humor and his office staff is professional and pleasant.”
“I had a very involved , 7 hour surgery done by Dr. Sandeen in March, 2017. His expertise and follow-up care were excellent. He also possesses a great sense of humor and bedside manner. I would highly recommend him.”

True Professional with Gifted Hands
“I had the most amazing experience with Dr. Hess, he is a true professional with gifted hands. Dr. Hess performed a face-lift along with upper and lower lids. The outcome, which to date is only one month, and is greater than my expectations. Dr. Hess is passionate about his work and a true perfectionist. A few days ago, after my procedure, I got a new haircut, and my friends and acquaintance said, "Wow, I love your new hair style, it has taken 10 years off your looks." I only smiled and said thank you. Dr. Hess has wonderful bedside manners and his office staff is friendly.”
