Dr. Defresne is AMAZING! I can not tell you how happy I am that I found him. And even more happy that I decided to trust him with my face!!! He is a true artist. This process has been seamless to say the least. I had surgery on May 3, 2017 and it is the 9th! I look amazing and getting better every day! If you are on the fence about taking this big leap think no more. It will be the best decision you have ever made if you choose Dr. Defresne! He is delightfully nice and his staff is terrific!

Love, Love, Dr. Dufresne, he is truly an Artist. Majority of my close relatives are Doctors and or surgeon, including a plastic surgeon. But, Dr. Dufresne is the Doctor both my mom and I Choose to go to. He has performed all my mothers elective surgeries and the outcome of the each surgery was nothing but perfection. We have been going to him for the past 20 years, and honestly not we have not one bad thing to say about him and or his staff.

This man is nothing short of a butcher. I had two C sections and my scaring was nothing compared to what he left me with. My procedure was not only a waste of money but a very poor selection of surgeons. He and his staff rushed through my surgery and provided extremely poor after care. Scared and in pain is the only result of using this Dr I would have left zero stars if it had been an option. Caution DO NOT USE HIM!!!
