Dr. Ganske did eyelid surgery for me. He was very helpful and explained everything in detail. He always took his time and answered all my questions. I am very happy with the results. Several people have mentioned that I look several years younger now!

In June 2017 I had a mole removed from my face by a dermatologist which left a large round scar/indention. I went to Dr. Ganske after hearing great feedback. He made a small incision and he removed the scar. I'm very happy with the results and would highly recommend.

I have been very happy with Dr Ganske. He has done breast implants for me. He listens to his patients and makes sure they are pleased with the results. This has been a very positive experience for me and I would recommend him to others.
