I had my face done a year ago. Everyone thinks I'm 10 + years younger. I look totally natural. I'm so happy with my results.

I can't emphasize enough how HORRIBLE my experience with Drehsen and his staff was. He botched my lip enhancement procedure so badly, it took me 4 months & a lot of time/money with other doctors to fix what he did to me. He used the wrong filler, "ran out" mid-procedure and made me buy 2 syringes, injected it in the wrong places around my mouth and cheeks (!?), unevenly & too shallow. I never healed until getting hyaluronidase from another Dr. to remove it. He only cares about money. Stay away!

Refresher lift left me with massive scarring around entire hairline, 2 scars on both sides of my neck from compression wrap being so tight that it pulled open skin and then took forever to close and heal on its own. I now have pixie ears which is a tell tale sign of a bad face lift. I have muscles that can be seen where the tension is so tight behind my ears that I can no longer where my hair up. I spend every day trying to conceal scars. I can no longer do water sports because it reveals all.
I went to dr Drehsen on referral. I explained I wanted. Tummy tuck. He and is staff pushed me into a Brazzlian butt lift and I am very unhappy with the results. It is not the goal I was seeking. You cannot understand him. His staff changes constantly. I wish I never had the surgery.

Horrible results after liopsuction and breast lift performed by Dr. Dreshen. He performed the quickest, easiest and most expensive procedures he could on me. Unfortunately I was naive and eager for changes. It was a very unfortunate, tragic and life altering mistake. My experience was like going to a creepy used car dealership and taken for every penny by con-artists. Emotional trauma and deep regret is what I live with today...hoping to be able to fix this one day when I can afford it.
