Face Lift

Everything was done professionally and to my satisfaction.

Breast Reconstruction

Dr Carlino and his staff were always very kind and caring. I never had to wait more than a few minutes for my appointments. My final outcome after surgery is great!

Breast Lift

Very professional overall. Realistic about the outcome. Surgeon always pleasant and not rushed with post op check ups

Tummy Tuck

I was totally satisfied with all aspects of my surgery. Care was outstanding, the surgeon, anesthesiologist and nurse gave me clear explanations as to what would happen during the surgery and what to expect afterwards. Pain management was superb, I experienced far less pain than I expected for a tummy tuck. My surgeon's skill was apparent as I had little swelling and bruising and my final results were wonderful. I would recommend Dr Oschwald and the Specialist In Plastic Surgery group to anyone looking for plastic surgery. After massive weight loss, the hanging skin left me with a body image problem. Prior to my breast lift, arm lift and tummy tuck my clothes did not fit, and I did not look as I felt I should at my proper weight. I'm also able to exercise without the pain of flopping skin, and I no longer have the wrinkled elephant skin I had prior to my surgeries. I look forward to completing my journey with a thigh lift.

Breast Reduction

Knowledgeable, personable, upbeat Doctor who answered all my questions, prepared me for the procedure and aftercare. He also did a beautiful job, with minimal scarring. My clothes fit better. I can wear things I never wore before. My breasts and I enter the room at the same time, instead of them first. I don't get ogled so much because of my extra large chest.

Body Lift

For a patient, the morning of surgery can be filled with nerves and anxiety, but at SIPS, everyone is calm, kind, and reassuring. No one is rushing around. Everything about the morning is personal. And the last minutes, when you walk into the surgical suite and lay down on the table to the last few seconds where you doze off to sleep, the anesthesiologist, nurse and doctor are holding your hand, talking in sweet calm tones and ensuring serenity and trust. To me, these minutes are everything.

My eyes and eyebrows got a lift! The cost of the procedure seemed high. There was a special going on at the time but I wasn't informed how many units I received and couldn't confirm I received the discounted price. I should have asked.

Juvederm® Lip Enhancement

Amy is an expert in what she does. She is truly an artist and has a trained aesthetic eye, she really made me feel comfortable and the results I had were phenomenal. The result was one that wasn't too "overdone" but looked amazing

Eyelid Surgery


Breast Lift

Dr. Carlino was a joy to work with. He is professional but warm, and is clearly knowledgable about a number of procedures and surgery in general. I initially decided to get implants and a partial lift because I was worried about scarring. After a year I was unhappy with the implants because of their size (which he and I chose together), I decided to remove the implants and get a full lift instead. I was still worried about scarring, but after only three months they are already better than I thought they would be originally. When I decided to remove my implants, Dr. Carlino was very accommodating in terms of working out a price for a second surgery. He always made me feel heard and understood and I completely trust his abilities, and I would (and may) absolutely use his services again.

Botox Cosmetic

How down to earth and informative Amy was!! Love her!

Amy McInnis, RN Raleigh , NC

Botox Cosmetic

Amy was fantastic! It was my first time and she put me at ease and did not pressure me to do more than what I wanted

Tummy Tuck

The procedure worked well. The excess skin is gone and my tummy has never looked better. There was no pressure to have surgery after all of my questions were answered. The staff provided information to help with the financial part as well.Dr. Dalovoy provided details of the type of surgery I had and realistic expectations of the entire process. I followed the recommendations and have had no complications. My scar is healing well.

Breast Lift

Wish they were lifted a little higher. Felt like they have dropped more than I would like but too I think this is because of the size of my breast and it being heavy.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Carlino and his staff are very professional and compassionate towards their patients. I never doubted their expertise or their confidence. I have referred them to others and will use their services again. I feel and look younger. I don't feel like I have to open my eyes wider to see.

Lip Enhancement

After my appt I was able to contact Amy about any questions I had and she was able to help me. She was awesome during the appt and totally understood what look i wanted. THANKS AMY YOU'RE THE BEST

Botox Cosmetic

Great staff, clean office, clear understanding of what to expect, great results w zero side effects or bothersome sensations. I was pleasantly surprised. Was expecting a weird feeling in my forehead and it all feels totally normal

Breast Augmentation

Highly satisfied because of the amount and quality of time spent with surgeon before and after surgery. Felt listened to in every question; nurses were attentive. My physical and emotional experiences mirrored what I was told to expect. The fact that Dr. Oschwald looks at your body to recommend proportionate breast sizes rather than focusing on a specific measurement or implant size. I appreciate that his expertise enables him to recommend the correct size for a patient's body.

Arm Lift

I had arm lift surgery following a massive weight loss. I felt a real rapport with Dr. Russell. I felt that he really understood me and what I was wanting. He did not have an over the top" attitude. I had consults with two other surgeons who came across as very arrogant. I felt very confident in his abilities. I felt as though he listened well and was interested in my well-being and happiness.My arm lift results are way better than I had hoped they would be. Everyone had told me that I would have horrible, gross scars and I would never want anyone to see my arms. How WRONG they were!!! I do believe that I can actually go sleeveless this summer!"

Breast Reduction

A few years back I came in to consider this surgery, but was not mentally nor financially ready. This time, I was ready and felt at peace with the procedure. Being a nurse, I am keenly aware of risks etc and I was reassured that I was an excellent candidate for the surgery I was considering . I have always felt guilt about the idea of a breast reduction, knowing it is elective- again MD Blanton and his team were respectful and supportive in a kind and authentic way that allowed me to feel at peace with my decision. I am very grateful for their support and skill. Overall a life changing experience.
