I had a neck lift last year same time. It was the most painful experience ever. No anesthetiser only locals and a pain pill given before surgery. It hurt so bad and I could feel the blood running down my neck from the cuts. I almost passed out over the pain and began shaking, the recovery was worse. It’s the first time I think I’ve taken pain medication on the dot at the prescribed time due to the excruciating pain. I’ve never had surgery without anaesthesia- never again. Well here we are a year later and my neck has fallen and I have loose skin. I scheduled a a follow up and Dr. Malhotra saw the problem and admitted it needed to be corrected. I told her I can’t take another surgery it was just too traumatic. She suggested wearing a headband around my face neck so it wouldn’t sag further. I was almost in tears, was this for real? Then she asked me how bad did it bother me? Well a lot, I paid 7,000 for results that are supposedly to last 8-10 yrs. then wanted to charge me 5,000 to fix

All I can do is tell you about my experience and whether you take it to heart or not, is up to you. But I would not recommend this place at all. I had one eye sagging more than the other...and I still have one eye sagging more than the other. I knew after a couple weeks after surgery that they didn’t look right. Follow up 3 times trying to get her to fix it. She finally told me she would fix them but when I pressed for a date, she told me she couldnt because I didn’t have enough skin? Really!

I had the Full Face Fractional co2 Laser and Look Natural Lift. Dr. Malhotra and her staff are amazing. I was so nervous about my decision on doing this but they were very caring and informative. I had acne scarring, winkles, and a saggy neck. She took it all away! They were always available for questions and her consultant Roseann even called to check up on me. I would highly recommend this Dr. and office staff to anyone. If you are considering doing this, don't wait. You won't be sorry!

Lack of communication post operation was abysmal. Post procedure discharge shockingly lax. No written post op treatment/steps other than boilerplate nonsense...literally says "if it stings, don't use it" or "usually the morning of your procedure a technician will direct you when to take medication". Really? You drugged me with valium and oxy and I have nothing in writing as when to take next dose, etc. Pass, you can find a doctor who cares!

Dr. Malhotra performed the lift, neck, lower eye (got rid of the bags!) and the laser procedure on me several months ago. As I think back, I would tell anyone it was absolutely a "piece of cake!" I could not be more pleased with the entire experience from the consultation to the final visit! Dr. Malhotra is not only a skilled surgeon, she is a kind and caring person...one who is immediately available after surgery for any and all concerns. Roseanne and other staff are just wonderful, as well!

I trusted Dr. Malhotra for Kybella injections and submental liposuction to get rid of my double chin. I can not say enough nice things about her and her staff. She did not pressure me in any way. She explained my options in detail and answered all of my questions, Her staff is also warm and friendly. My choice was to begin with least invasive method but after a few injections I was still not seeing the results I wanted. I decided to go with submental lipo and I am so happy with the results

I had a hard time deciding to pursue cosmetic surgery due to my fear of the procedure itself, the potential discomfort involved and most of all, whether or not the results would be satisfactory enough to justify moving forward. My experience with Dr. Malhotra showed that my concerns were baseless -- and moreover, the outcome exceeded my greatest hopes. Most importantly, I’m going into my future with a whole new positive attitude. Dr. Malhotra, no exaggeration, has given me my life back.

It is with an equal measure of elation and esteem that I tender this review for Dr. Ritu Malhotra. I originally met Dr. Malhotra about three years ago seeking an evaluation about fillers and Botox. The suggestion of a lift was offered as an option. I finally took the plunge and decided to get the Look Natural Lift. I had always been somewhat attractive but age and gravity were beginning to drag me down! I was scared but Dr. Malhotra and her staff are so remarkable, experienced, and reassuring th
