Dr. DeBacker is an incredibly talented surgeon I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for a professional they can trust. I am so pleased with my brow lift results that are so natural, with no visible scars. I've already recommended a friend who also had excellent results.

I was referred to Dr. Debacker by my ophthalmologist, and I have found him to be just as she described: very professional, very helpful in giving pertinent information so I could make informed choices, very skilled as a surgeon. I will be using his services again for another procedure.
