"I would highly recommend Dr. Kowalczyk. He genuinely cares and works with the client to achieve realistic goals."
"Cannot speak highly enough of my experience - I had elected for buccal fat removal and was very intentional in seeking out a plastic surgeon that exclusively performed facial procedures. Dr. K and his practice were a perfect fit for my needs. I appreciated his knowledge, experience, and candor. It was an easy and straightforward procedure, and I’m so pleased with my results. Dr. K has a wonderful practice, staffed with the nicest people between the front desk and the exam room. They ensure all needs are met, and all questions/concerns addressed from the initial consult, to the procedure, and throughout your post-op care (Lisa, especially, going above and beyond!). I cannot speak highly enough of my experience and would recommend Dr. K to anyone considering facial reconstruction."
"I am now able to breathe and feeling healthy. - I’m absolutely Pleased with my results. I had deviated septum surgery/Septoplasty on March 6,2023.I am now able to breathe and feeling healthy.Dr. K, took time to explain the procedure, he addressed all my concerns and questions.Dr. K is a very down to earth personable doctor!!Thank you !!"
"Dr.Kowalczyk performed a zplasty to improve the look of my turkey neck. Everything was well explained prior to the surgery and it was a painless process. Recovery was fairly swift, and just a couple of ibuprofen for 2 or 3 days were needed. The results are great. He provided a couple of follow-up checkups. Now precisely one month after the procedure the results are.... No turkey neck, Smooth looking firm skin and a tiny, nearly invisible scar. Office staff were also great to work with and knowledgeable. My work schedule changed and they were quite helpful rescheduling a couple of appointments. Overall 5 stars and pleased with the results. Highly recommend this office for their face surgery and advice."
"Amazing Experience with Face and Neck Lift - I wasn't happy for some time with how saggy and loose the skin on my neck was, how I didn't have a defined jawline, and how deep my smile lines were, therefore I wanted to look more relaxed and rejuvenated before my 50th birthday. After visiting a couple of other facial surgeons, I met with Dr. Kowalczyk and was amazed by his expertise and professionalism. I wanted my surgery to be before the holidays and he was able to fit me in and my surgery ended up being November 28, 2022 exactly a month before the holidays and the exact time I wanted to have it done! He made me feel comfortable and I was confident he would do a great job. I was right, all of my expectations were met and more with his work. It didn't end there, the post-operative care was amazing from his and his staff and rest of team! I felt supported throughout the whole journey. There was always someone who answered the phone, not just a machine, no matter the time of day I always had someone pick up the phone. They addressed all of my worries and questions after the surgery. Also, the checkups with Dr. Kowalczyk were frequent because he wanted to make sure everything was healing well. Even today, 6 months post op I still go to my follow ups with him because even though I feel great now and everything is healed, he still wants to see my progress and make sure everything has healed and looks great. He always enters the room with a smile and with such a positive attitude and goes above and beyond for his patients to be happy with his work. I definitely recommend Dr. Kowalczyk to anyone wanting a face/neck lift as I am so grateful and happy with my surgery and results! Sincerely, Claudia T."
