Glynn Bolitho, MD Reviews (224)

Face Lift

Both Dr. Bolitho and Karen made me feel completely at ease. I actually felt like they were listening to what I wanted done. I did not feel like I was just another lift the doc was going to do. I so appreciated that.

Injectable Fillers

Healed quickly, less pain, staff supportive and attended to my needs and questions.

Breast Reconstruction

The entire team was very welcoming and friendly making me feel at ease. [Single best thing is...] How the team made me feel comfortable with the procedure, explained every step and was very sincere in their approach.

Eyelid Surgery

I like the results! I was treated with the utmost care and concern. Dr. Bolitho and his nurse were very professional and thorough! [Single best thing is...] The staff listened to me and explained things well. They took their time with me.

Pectoral Implants

Dr. B spends most time and has the greatest expertise. Office staff is the best.

Breast Lift

Dr. Bolitho and all the staff were attentive to my questions, needs and recovery. Great experience. Made me feel as if I was their only patient.

Breast Augmentation

The customer service experience was excellent as was Dr. Bolitho's team. Everything was top notch and I felt this is the right place to receive care.

Breast Reduction

Great friendly service. Professional caring [Single best thing is...] Felt very safe and cared for.

Breast Augmentation

The experience was one of a kind. The staff was top of the line, and the Doctor is exceptional. Everyone works together in the best way to give you the best experience. In addition, they are highly accommodating to visits after your surgery and provide a lot of assistance in any way possible. 10/10!!

Face Lift

I also had brachioplasty surgery along with a face lift. The entire team was extremely professional and caring. Very compassionate.

Breast Implant Revision

They addressed my specific need with care, respect, and professionally. They were friendly and made me feel they were experts with a cheerful bedside manner. They took care to listen to what I wanted.

Face Lift

I am very happy with the outcome of my Face Lift. I feel it looks very natural, yet I can see a difference from before. My friends also tell me how natural it looks. I'm glad Dr. Bolitho is more of a conservative surgeon. He won't do anything that he feels will make you look like you've had work done. I feel like my Face Lift turned back time a few years. It's not that I suddenly look 25 again; that's not going to happen unfortunately. But the face lift freshened me up and took away the sagging skin around the jawline. My sister told me, she sees the old me, when she looks at me now. (Not the old me.... the old me. ha ha)

Face Lift

The doctor was wonderful. He took the time to explain everything, he was patient with all my questions. I never felt rushed, or that any question was too silly. He showed me what would be the best course of surgery to get the result I desired. His patient coordinator was also so helpful, they were funny, and I felt at ease immediately. I so trust this doctor and his staff.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Bolitho and his team were very careful with my health and did not push me into agreeing to any procedures I did not need. I needed a hernia & diastasis repair. A few days before my scheduled surgery I developed a viral upper respiratory infection and Dr. Bolitho responsibly decided to postpone the procedure for a week to prevent complications to my surgical recovery. Now after 2 months of post-op recovery, I am noting how well Dr. Bolitho and his team repaired my tissues and muscles. The scar is very thin, I have no dog-earing or creases, my hernia pain is gone, and I feel my core is stronger now that my abdominal muscles have been re-tightened. During my recovery I had weekly checkups with the team, and if there was any doubt there might be a complication, the team fit me in for an appointment right away, even getting me urgent care when it was suspected I may have a blood clot (I did not). I am very impressed with their professionalism, patient care, and of course mastery of physiology.

Tummy Tuck

The doctor and staff did a great job removing loose skin from weight loss. I had almost no major swelling and am very pleased with my results.

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.

Face Lift

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.
