Face Lift

great information, Dr B was very informative and put me at ease. Loved Karen for the same reasons.

Face Lift

Dr Bolitho is truly an artist. He achieved the results exactly as I wished. He is a master at creating exactly what is asked for, nothing more nothing less. His staff is professional and caring. I was made to feel at ease and confident that the procedure would be safe and comfortable.

Breast Lift

Dr Bolitho really cares. Bedside manner excellent. [Single best thing is...] Relationship with Doctor/ nurse

Face Lift

His clarity, his knowledge, his honesty and his work product are amazing.

Tummy Tuck

This surgery has changed my life! I am so incredibly happy with the entire process, from the procedure prep, to the surgery itself, to the recovery process. The communication with the with the entire staff at Dr. Bolitho's office was stellar. The recovery was much less challenging than I anticipated. I would highly recommend Dr. Bolitho to absolutely anyone who is looking for the very best Surgeon and Staff! I am so very grateful....

Tummy Tuck

Not only am I highly satisfied with the incredible results of surgery at the skilled hands of Dr Bolitho, but I'm also very impressed and satisfied with the process and journey as a whole. Dr Bolitho and his entire team were very responsive to my needs the entire time...from consultation to preop prep to day of surgery and post op care and follow up. I believe that a successful outcome really is dependent on each link in the chain being caring, intuitive, skilled, communicative, responsive, professional the entire few months of the journey. Dr Bolitho is a surgeon you can trust, with a strong, excellent team supporting. Class act, tight ship !

Neck Lift

Everyone in the office that I interacted with was absolutely wonderful!

Face Lift

Friendly, professional and welcoming - both the doctor and all the team members. I felt comfortable instantly. I did not feel pressured in any way, and left knowing I would schedule my surgery because I trusted them.

Breast Reconstruction

highly skilled doctor with a eye for beauty, humble bedside manner he is the best! The staff in his office is very friendly and the surgical staff were great, I highly recommend Dr. Bolitho

Face Lift

Very detailed. Explained everything and made me feel at ease

Male Breast Reduction

This was my first surgery of any kind and the staff during the entire process was nothing but fantastic. The overall experience was done with respect and patience, not to mention the results are what I was told they were be. Nothing was over promised, just the reality of what to expect, and those results were great.

Breast Reconstruction

Dr Bolitho replaced 11 year old implants that were put in due to reconstructive surgery after breast cancer. I have had many revisionary surgeries since my original surgery (done by a different surgeon) and for the most party they have been satisfactory. However, this past surgery, Dr Bolitho made them look better than they every have before! I wish they could have looked this good in the beginning! My confidence is now so much better!

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Blitho's office performed my eyelid surgery, I was/am highly satisfied with my procedure and followup services. Dr. Blitho's office has displayed excellent customer service and care before my procedure and after. My friends have noticed the difference after my procedure and have asked who performed my surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Blitho to my friends and family members. [Single best thing is...] My surgical procedure was handled with special care from the beginning to the end of my procedure. All Dr. Blitho's staff displayed awesome professionalism.


Dr. B and Elizabeth listened and provided thoughtful recommendations for what to do. They did not pressure me into making any decisions and ensured that I was comfortable with the decisions that were made.

Face Lift

The staff and Doctor made it a very comfortable experience.Also the person who stayed with me in the hotel, the day of surgery was excellent and also made me feel very comfortable. The followups have also been great and are open to hear my concerns.

Tummy Tuck

The care is phenomenal, the work and scar line is fantastic, the knowledge is very comforting. [Single best thing is...] Everything went off with out a hitch. Breast lift and augmemtation tummy tuck and lipo minimal pain.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Everyone in the office is fabulous! This office is 5 stars every time! My results are always fantastic! There is no in between!

Treatment / Procedure

Elizabeth took her time with me and gave me the feedback that I needed. She's very professional always and very pleasant.

Breast Augmentation

I came into this appointment not really knowing what to expect, and was very nervous. As soon as I walked in I was greeted by the lady at the front desk and she was very welcoming. After consulting with Dr. Bolitho and Karen, I was so comfortable and knew I would be booking my appointment with them when the time was right. The whole staff made me feel very at ease and like they were family. So thank you to the whole staff, it was a great first experience.

Brow Lift

The staff is polite, friendly and professional. I felt relaxed and not at all uncomfortable with Dr. Bolitho and his way of exploring possibilities for the results I seek. I believe I am in good hands.
