Glynn Bolitho, MD Reviews (209)

Neck Lift

Every person in the office was very caring, professional and friendly and made me feel very comfortable.

Mommy Makeover

Consultations can be stressful. Taking off all of your clothes in bright room and exposing the defects that you want addressed in front of strangers. I appreciated the opportunity to go into a comfortable sitting room to discuss my issues with the doctor and counselors prior to being placed into a clinical room. Dr. Bilitho and his staff are very cognizant the discomfort that one feels in that clinical environment. After the physical examination they spent a lot of time discussing my options and showing me many before and after photos. I never felt rushed and I felt that all of my questions were answered and even some that I didn't think of. I was very pleased with the attention to detail and to the follow up process.

Neck Lift

I couldn't ask for a better experience. Every member of the staff is highly competent and caring. Dr. Bolitho is not only highly competent, he is utterly charming, kind, and caring. The single best thing is how I look. I am closing in on 79 years of age and look nothing like one would expect a woman of my age to look.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Blitho's team very customer oriented, the procedure was well explained and all my questions were answered detailing my procedure. I look forward to my procedure and I'm very confident with Dr. Blithos professionalism.

I was impressed with the professional tone and the extent of the information and options I received. The recommendations I felt were designed for me personally to help reach my specific goals. The gallery showing the results of completed surgeries of interest to me were extremely helpful. I was made to feel at ease by the entire staff and appreciated the time Dr. Bolitho spent with me. I highly enjoyed the experience. Thank you.

Breast Implant Revision

Unlike many doctors that just talk and try to suggest the maximum number of things they think you will commit to, Dr. Bolitho is a great listener. He heard what was bothering me about my current implants and suggested a way to fix them that was not very extensive.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Glynn Bolitho is a plastic surgery genius (or one with extraordinary intellect and talent) and he has an exceptional supportive staff!! He was recently recommended to me by another talented doctor who did cancer surgery on my face 15 years ago. I am 75+ and look natural, younger and healthier. He did eyes, cheeks, upper lip, smile lines around mouth and neck. I wish I would have known of him years ago. Thank you Dr. Bolitho and Staff. I'm so pleased when I look in the mirror.
