Douglas Sunde, MD Reviews (160)

Face Lift

Dr. Sunde is amazingly kind, caring and makes you feel comfortable. The staff are always welcoming, informed, and helpful. Dr Sunde's medical skills are unparalleled. I now know, from personal experience, why he's considered the top plastic surgeon in the area. He's amazing!! I think the test of a plastic surgeon is that the patient feels and looks wonderful, but the procedure is not noticeable to others. Dr. Sunde is very successful in this respect.

Neck Lift

Dr Sunde's experience and expertise was evident during my consult. During my consult he was gentle and thoughtful about his advise. I am extremely happy with my results! I love the NEW me!

Eyelid Surgery

My experience with Dr. Sunde and his staff was outstanding. The staff is very welcoming, and are organized, diligent and caring. Dr. Sunde is excellent. He is extremely bright and current on all recent literature. He is very generous with his time and answers every question. He discusses options and goes over all pros and cons. There were no surprises during or after surgery. Follow up was equally thorough.Overall the experience was exceptional.

Dr. Sunde is by far one of the best doctor I have ever had the pleasure to have been treated by. He truly goes above and beyond to give his patient a superb outcome... my face was in his hands and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.

Face Lift

Dr. Sunde and his staff were exceptional from the consultation, surgery and, follow ups

Face Lift

[Single best thing is...] I feel like my ‘face’ is renewed; definitely look younger and feel extremely happy with results! Dr. Sunde is an excellent surgeon; I’m very satisfied with my face lift procedure! He helped to prepare me for the surgery & explained what I would experience as related to swelling/pain. He is always very compassionate in all the follow up appointments too. His Office Staff are friendly and provided excellent customer service in scheduling appointments etc.

Eyelid Surgery

I am a retired family nurse practitioner with 35 years of experience and extremely picky. I had upper eyelid & earlobe surgery. Dr. Sunde & his staff are outstanding professionals. Friends & family are fascinated with my surgery results.

Tummy Tuck

[Single best thing is...] Dr. Sunde was a class-act during surgery prep. He kept me calm and made me feel safe. The quality of care far exceeded my expectations. Dr. Sunde went well out of his way to make me feel comfortable. He was genuine and an all around class-act. The surgery site is healing well and I am very happy with the overall results.

Neck Lift

Dr. Sunde is very forthright and candid about the procedure, the outcome, and what to expect. His before and after care are stellar.

Brow Lift

Scalp is still crazy itchy. Scalp hair loss is extremely disappointing. Forehead and nose wrinkle are back like they were. Neck lift --still have loss of sensation. Have been suffering from severe tinnitus since surgery.

Face Lift

Experienced, friendly, supportive. Dr Sundae is an expert. Natural results.

Face Lift

Dr. Sunde is highly skilled and professional. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Results are great.

Face Lift

It’s apparent that Dr. Sunde is highly skilled and respected in his field, but add to that the kindness he offers his patients, and it is an exemplary medical experience. Maureen is wonderful as well, appointment times are respected, and information is honest and direct. I believe the main ingredient setting Dr. Sunde apart is his personal interest in giving his patients the best care possible and making them feel well cared for.

Breast Reduction

Dr. Sunde and his team made my experience with my breast reduction surgery a piece of cake. He walked me through every aspect of preparation, surgery, and post-op care and made me feel so at ease. I would recommend Dr. Sunde to everyone and anyone for any plastic surgery needs.

Neck Lift

Dr. Sunde's work is the best I've seen! He and his staff are caring and attentive throughout the entire process from consultation to surgery and post-procedure. Dr. Sunde took the time to explain the entire process and answer all questions I had. I am ecstatic about my results! I look natural but so much better. I get tons of compliments on my appearance but no one can tell I had a face/neck lift. Just that I look great :)

Neck Lift

Dr. Sunde and his staff were extremely caring and knowledgable and fully focused on making my experience safe with the best possible outcome. Dr. Sunde made sure to answer all my questions and was on call to answer any questions or concerns I had after my procedure. Wonderful group! I highly recommend them.

Breast Reduction

I had large and uneven breasts that caused me discomfort. Dr. Sunde was able to form two breasts that are just the right size and completely even in appearance. I went from pendulous to perky. I love the way I feel and look.

Neck Lift

I could not recommend Dr. Sunde more highly. He is a thoroughly professional, skilled and diligent surgeon in whom I have the greatest confidence. Dr. Sunde followed up regularly after my surgeries and spent as much time as I could ask for in attending to my questions and concerns. The nurse and staff in the office are amazingly efficient and responsive. I know several former patients of Dr. Sunde and they very much are in agreement with me in my summary of his excellent patient care.
