Vanessa and Dr Pearlman are professionals that know their stuff, make you comfortable and do awesome work! I look younger, but natural and still look like me!

BOTOX® Cosmetic

At least 10 people have told me, "you look terrific".... since last week!


Great staff and loved the final product.

Revision Rhinoplasty

The quality of the care I received was very impressive. Though the practice I'm sure has many patients, I was made to feel as though I were the only one. There is minimal wait time. EVERYONE from the nurses to the secretaries to the Doctor are kind and want you to be comfortable and feel good.


I'm feeling better about my everyday appearance. great experience overall. I knew I wanted fillers, as well as a surgical consult for work in the future. I am extremely satisfied with the fillers, and can't wait to get the work done.


The staff was very friendly and accommodating.. The physician was professional and helpful. y I am satisfied with the result. Ultimately the only thing that matters is the result. I do not really care whether atmosphere and decor re pleasant or how long i have to wait. All i care is that procedure performed safely with good outcomes. The anesthesiologist was excellent. No side effects of anesthesia.


I had a septoplasty and a rhinoplasty with Dr. Pearlman. I am 4 months post op and I am very happy with the results. I had seen other surgeon and the reason I chose Dr. Pearlman is because he did the consultation himself. The other surgeon had his office coordinator do my consultation and he only came in towards the end to speak to me. Dr. Pearlman not only listened to what I wanted done (fix droopy tip) but he also suggested other way he could improve my nose. His staff is excellent. The office nurse Christine Ross was wonderful. She answered all my questions before and after my surgery. The anesthesiologist Dr. Moreno was wonderful. I was terrified of being put under since this was my first surgery but before I knew it I was out like a light. The first week of recovery was not easy as to be expected but I only used my vicodin once. After that I was able to just take regular extra strength Tylenol. I highly recommend Dr. Pearlman because he is a talented surgeon with a wonderful staff.


Dr Pearlman was very clear about the procedures, analyzed the best approach, he helped me visualize the final results and he had an elevated understanding of what would look right, balanced and beautiful.His surpassed my expectations. I felt old and worn. Now, I'm attractive, approachable and appealing. It has restored my self confidence, and resurrected my self esteem.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Dr Pearlman walks in with a kind smile but appears to get angry and dismissive in a hurry when specific questions are asked of him. Provided vague answers to some questions. Not all. Seems annoyed by questions. Didn't want to hear my concerns--dismissive. He was opening the door and walking out while I was still asking questions and speaking.


I continued to get emails about scheduling a consultation after I had already scheduled one. Also, I haven't fully recovered yet so it's hard to say.


On the very first consultation doctor identified all the problems with my nose and discussed how he could fix them and improve the nose. The plan sounded great and I was really looking forward to the surgery. 1) Nose is hurting, no steps to eliminate pain are taken, it looks worse than before, need another revision surgery in the future 2) Got big scar right in the middle of breast, need additional procedures to fix this, still hurts two months after surgery 3) Another doctor was removing stitches (not the surgeon), did a terrible job, had to go to another doctor to finish removing stitches (not all were initially removed and were hurting) 4) No pre-op appointment, only saw doctor briefly right before the surgery 5) The only way to contact them outside the office is e-mail, had a concern on Saturday and got response on Monday

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Definite improvement in appearance. Smoother looking face. Hoping for less folds around mouth area. Facelift scheduled for Feb


Dr. Pearlman made me feel confident that he truly knew what he was doing and I do not have to worry. Of course, he said all the risks but he helped me calm down and relieve my anxiety before and after surgery. I felt very comfortable. He is kind, friendly but also serious and thorough when it comes to the surgery and procedures. I always feel he gives me 100%. His nurses and staff are really kind and helpful too. They were really good to me every time I came in whether the surgery, follow ups or consultation. I am an anxious person so it is so great that they were all so wonderful to me. I would highly recommend Dr. Pearlman! He is the very best there is! I sometimes go to sleep and have nightmares that I will wake up with my old nose. That's how unhappy I was with it. This surgery truly changed my life! I feel more confident in general and taking pictures. It just feels so amazing to wake up and look in the mirror and see how perfect but so natural to my face my nose looks. I am so grateful to Dr. Pearlman!


Dr. Pearlman exceeded my expectations going into my rhinoplasty procedure. I am more than pleased with the results 2 months following my surgery and it's almost hard to believe that it will continue to heal for the next 10 months. He focused on creating a natural result, which was really important to me. Dr. Pearlman also took everything I said during my consult into account and also helped manage my expectations. The staff is really warm and welcoming and the nurse and anesthesiologist made me feel at ease on the day of surgery and also during my follow up visits. The procedure has given me a new sense of convidence. I no longer worry about how my face is positioned when I'm talking to people (so that they don't catch my nose at a bad angle). I also generally feel much more at ease when interacting with people, whether I knew them already or have just met them.


I can't see a difference. It may have helped if before and after pictures were taken


I'm now 8 months post op from rhinoplasty surgery and I'm extremely happy with the results. Dr. Pearlman is not one for sugar coating anything, but he produces amazing results. He's an expert at his craft and was able to improve my nose without making me look completely different. He gave me an extremely thorough consultation and recovery was pretty minimal. The only thing I will say is that I was not mentally prepared for what my nose would look like initially after the cast was off. I was pretty upset as I did not realize I could look piggy for those first couple weeks and didn't get warned about that. That's on me as well as I just didn't see that in any research initially. However that look faded and it healed very nicely. I'm very happy with the results :) I feel more confident and not constantly insecure about the way my nose looks, particularly in pictures where I'd overanalyze and hate the way I looked. It's healed to be such a subtle change that no one notices I had a procedure, they just think I look better.


Dr. Pearlman is very professional, after my Botox and Voluma procedure I look at least 10 years younger. I already recommended his to my female friends. My face looks so much better, at least 10 years younger. No wrincles, no crow's feet. The result is amazing!!!

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr Pearlman detected right spots to inject Botox! Amazing result ! I'll be your patient forever! Professional, caring and friendly, knowledge and skill!

Cupid's Bow Lip

I wanted fuller lips and although I came to the office twice for fuller treatment my lips do not look that much different from the original size. I paid $2,250.00 in total and still do not have the desired look for my lips The staff friendliness

Face Lift

Despite a few problems which have been resolved, I am highly satisfied with the overall experience. I look younger and better and that was the whole point of having the surgery done. Dr. Pearlman is skilled and highly qualified and I am very pleased with the final result of multiple procedures at his office. His staff is very professional and pleasant. The best thing is the outcome; I am pleased with how much younger my face looks. A large part of the good outcome was based on the preparation for the surgery, which was excellent and extensive. Detailed information sheets on each surgical procedure were given; these spelled out what to expect or do before and after surgery.
