Los Gatos, CA |
I have repeatedly been highly satisfied with my experience with Dr. Carniol and his professional staff. Dr. Carniol's knowledge of the non-evasive plastic surgery methods I was interested in made me feel confident in the decisions I made. Further, I was beyond thrilled with the results. I have a natural, youthful look that I wanted. Dr. Carniol is patient, takes his time to make sure the patient understands what is going on, and is meticulous at following up to make sure the patient is happy.

Very happy with the service of this accomplished Doctor and his great staff.
Flemington, NJ |
Dr. Carniol and his staff are truly amazing! My treatment experience from start to finish was comfortable, professional, and most of all, provided great results! I suffer from facial acne scars, and Dr. Carniol recommended a series of laser treatments. The laser treatments have largely eliminated my scaring. It has been life-changing, and although many doctor's provide this type of treatment, Dr. Carniol and his staff have the experience and knowledge to deliver the results.

Dr. Carniol is all that one can ask for in a plastic surgeon. He listened carefully to my questions and concerns about two procedures: a large mole on my chin and facial rejuvenation with injectable fillers. His explanations were thorough and comprehensive so I understood options, procedures and the results I could expect. Dr. Carniol has a great aesthetic sense to complement his skills. I'm delighted with the outcome of his work- great, natural looking results with minimal procedures!
