Your cosmetic surgery experience with Dr. Barttelbort will begin with a detailed consultation. If you desire facial rejuvenation procedures, Dr. Barttelbort may ask you to bring a photograph of yourself from 10 or 15 years ago and inquire about what you would specifically like to change about your appearance.
Based on the information you provide, combined with Dr. Barttelbort’s extensive experience in performing cosmetic surgery, he will suggest procedures that will help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Dr. Barttelbort will fully explain your surgical options, along with the results you can expect, to help you make the most informed decision and develop realistic expectations.
