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.

Voluma Botox Cosmetic

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 Juvederm® Restylane

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.

Botox Cosmetic

Dr. Pearlman listened to my needs - as he is a new doctor to me our first appointment product use was conservative on his recommendation. Appreciated his patience Crows feet diminished

Face Lift

I had a face lift 4 months ago. It took me a year to get up the courage to have the procedure. During that time I asked innumerable questions. Dr. Pearlman, Donna Fay and the entire staff were patient, generous with their time and understanding. I felt a healthy balance of their warmth and professionalism which helped me arrive at the day that I said, "ready." Assisted by the very competent (and warm) nurse Christine, Dr. P. did his thing. I had far less pain then I anticipated, and recovery was easier too, though there are several phases involved in the process. I look completely natural and younger and while there are times I wish the results were more pronounced, I don't know if that would be possible while still looking naturally like myself. I like these people, I like the work that they do. Dr P. is really talented and so are Donna and Christine in their fields. I would recommend them to anyone!


Definitely satisfied with my visit and procedure. Thank you, Dr. Pearlman! My lips and self confidence both improved

Eyelid Surgery

i felt he really knows what he is doing. He listened to what I didn't like and told me he would have no problem correcting it. ( I had fat in my upper eyelid that the last surgeon did not take out). He did a great job. I hardly swelled up after the surgery. The office is very clean and always made sure your body was clean whenever they worked on you. The staff was so nice. Everyone made you feel so comfortable there. I would recommend Dr. Pearlman to anyone !!! Atmosphere was very relaxing. Loved them playing Marvin Gaye through the surgery.

Brow Lift

I had seen two other dr's for consult prior visiting Dr Pearlman, the overall time and the attention I received made me choose this office. After that everything went very smoothly from the moment I met the nurse until I left the office. I had very little bruising and no complications during the recovery. I looked almost fine one week after surgery. Right now which is about a month post operation, I am very happy with the results I wanted a natural look from my eyebrow lift and I got exactly what I wanted. Just looking more refreshed and relaxed


yes, very satisfied. Dr. P and staff re awesome

Botox Cosmetic Restylane

Each member of staff I interacted with made me feel comfortable through the entire visit. Dr. Pearlman was honest, forward and knowledageble about my concerns and the available options for addressing them. The overall look. Although the Botox did not fully limit the movement of my 11s, it has dramatically improved my appearance. In addition to this, the restalyne added to my lips provided me with an enhanced but very natural look.

Revision Rhinoplasty

I cannot thank Dr. Pearlman enough for fixing my nose, both aesthetically and functionally. I was a complicated case and two previous surgeons extensively damaged my nose over the course of three surgeries. Given what I had been through physically and emotionally, I did not trust anyone else except Dr. Pearlman to perform a fourth surgery. I was not only impressed by the surgical results of Dr. Pearlman’s other patients, but also the videos of his revision rhinoplasty surgeries using rib grafts. It has only been a few months after my surgery, and I am very pleased with the results. Dr. Pearlman is a highly skilled and talented plastic surgeon. I admire his dedication to his practice as well as to teaching others, learning new techniques, collaborating with peers and being at the forefront of the latest advances in surgical and non-surgical procedures.Dr. Pearlman and his staff are professional, knowledgeable, helpful and courteous.

Eyelid Surgery

I knewe that the Dr and ;staff were exceptionally trained and knowledgable. I had complete confedence- I feel that I look refreshed and vibrant!

Eyelid Surgery

I felt secure in the skill set, intelligence and experience of my surgeon. the staff was very informative and caring. I enjoyed the serene surroundings and the respect given to me. I was comfortable asking questions and having my concerns addressed. And finally I had a life changing outcome, that has been something I have wanted for years. I feel more confident and happy with my result.

Botox Cosmetic Juvederm®

Dr. P listened to my concerns and then took care of them. He didn't overdo it with the fillers or Botox, which is good since it was my first time. Good results!
