Neck Lift

The results were much better than I had anticipated.

Face Lift

I have used Dr. Sunde on multiple occasions and been thrilled with the results every time. Office is a great mix of friendly and professional.

Face Lift

Every aspect, from initial consultation to follow-up visits were both efficient and professional. All of my questions were answered to my satisfaction and I felt like every safety precaution was met. I am completely satisfied with the outcome of my procedure and the results are such that I would not hesitate to do it again.

Neck Lift

My results were exactly what I wanted. I wanted to look like myself without a turkey neck. I worried I’d look fake, extreme or “done.” Not so. Dr. Sunde is a master and such a regular good guy. The staff is lovely beyond belief.

Face Lift

I have never encountered a nicer, more gracious, and more professional group than Dr. Sunde and his assistants. From top to bottom everyone was absolutely first rate. He has an outstanding reputation and I now know why. I felt like Dr. Sunde was with me every step of the way. I was so impressed that he came by my home the night of the surgery to check on me personally.

Neck Lift

Dr. Sunde is a highly competent surgeon who truly understands what his patients want. He is warm, compassionate and extremely skilled. He takes his patient's needs with the utmost seriousness and produces results that are natural. People don't necessarily know that you had surgery when he does it. [Single best thing is...] Getting rid of the excess skin around my neck and jowls.

Neck Lift

He is the best medically and bedside manner is the best!

Face Lift

Dr. Sunde and his superb team of well informed and supportive office staff and highly skilled surgery team made my surgery experience and after care a seamless experience in every way! I could not have been better cared for! Sunde, of course, is a magnificent surgeon replete with undeniable skill and clearly an eye for aesthetics. My surgical outcome truly reflects a younger, more alive version of myself!!! I'm jubilant!!!

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Sunde and his nurse Dierdre are amazing. They really care about patients and their outcomes, and are never more than a phone call away if there are problems. I always felt cared-for and heard, and feel like they have truly become friends in my life!

Face Lift

The results were amazing and Dr. Sunde and his staff were excellent. They were very caring and professional.

Neck Lift

First, Dr. Sunde is a top-notch professional. He is an excellent surgeon and his personality gives confidence as well. From the first visit I always felt I was in good hands. Also, the staff was the best. They were always kind and supportive.

Chin Implant

I thought the staff from beginning to end were awesome.They took time to talk to me and answered all my questions. The Doctor showed me good bedside manners. His expertise really shows. I would fully recommend the practice.

Fat Transfer

Excellence through entire experience. Realistic expectations were set; results above expectations. In addition to being a meticulous surgeon, Dr. Sunde is attentive & caring. Good experience with entire staff.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Sunde and his staff are all very professional, accommodating, and pleasant to work with. Dr. Sunde‘s pre-consultation, surgical experience, and follow-up were all comprehensive and my goals for this surgical procedure were met.

Eyelid Surgery

The surgery was very smooth and successful. We achieved the results better than we had expected. Dr. Sunde is highly knowledgeable, skillful, and professional. We are very happy to recommend him to anyone who has such a need.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Sunde and his nurse Maureen have been absolutely fabulous. Dr. Sunde prepared me well for the Surgery, and made me feel really great about everything. I will miss not seeing them when treatment is done!

Face Lift

As a patient I was well informed on what to expect. And I was closely followed by both Dr. Sunde and his staff. His staff—all three ladies—are competent and compassionate.

Face Lift

Dr. Sunde and his staff, Chelsea, Megan and Maureen are all compassionate, caring, nurturing and respectful. From my first appointment and throughout my follow-up I felt confident and cared for. I had a facelift, neck lift and fat transfer. There was actually another procedure that I wanted to do and Dr. Sunde did not feel that it was necessary. I was an absolute nervous wreck the morning of my surgery. Dr. Sunde came in and told me that he had thought about my surgery the evening before and had looked at the photographs he had taken. He felt confident that I was going to be pleased with the outcome and he was right. If you’re considering cosmetic surgery, may I suggest you pay a visit to Dr. Sunde? He will patiently listen to your concerns and address them, if you decided to have him preform your surgery, you will be pleased with the outcome.

Face Lift

I think doctor is very competent, compassionate and thorough. He explains the procedures in a cal manner. I liked he came to my house to check on me the day of my surgery.

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.
