If you are over 55 and thinking about a face lift and neck lift, then this is the surgeon for you. I was becoming somewhat depressed about the jowls, the double chin, the saggy, creppy neck and the tired looking eyes. Well its all gone now! I had my face/neck lift nearly 10 years ago and the results have really held up well. When I compare to my photos from 6 months after surgery, I still look great! It's wonderful to have very impressive and natural looking results that last and last!

Dr. Dryden and his staff are amazing. From the consultation, to scheduling my surgery, to explaiining everything that would take place on the day of surgery, to the day after and thru the weekend. You are made to feel like part of a family. Honest open, caring compassion, humor warmth and love.

He is a PERFECT DOCTOR with knowledge, experience, gold heart and Good heart! I have never met a Doctor in my life who takes care of his patients like Dr Dryden.

Dr. Dryden is the most caring and patient doctor I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He was able to get me to surgery right away and explained everything to help ease my concerns about going through my first surgery. He called me right after I got out of the hospital, even though it was late at night just to check on me and ensure that I was ok. Follow on checkups were just as pleasant and his staff is amazing. It's been a month and people hardly notice that I have an incision just under my

I suffer from an eye condition called congenital ptosis. Dr. Dryden has operated on my drooping eyelids over the years to alleviate the inherited problem of weak eye lid muscles. I have been very pleased with his surgeries, and would highly recommend him for correcting this problem. I have found Dr. Dryden to be very congenial and informative. His staff is also very professional.

Dr Dryden was my son's plastic surgeon and I couldn't have asked for better. He treat him like family, explaining exactly what was going to be done during the procedure and what he would see when he woke up. He even personally called and checked in on him after we got home. 12 years later when he needed a touch up, Dr Dryden was right there again. Thank you Dr Dryden for helping my son and our family through a difficult time.

Dr. Dryden is AMAZING! He recently performed BOTOX on my brow and crows feet. I look 20 years younger in just 3 days. Best of all, his injection technique is completely painless without using any topical anesthetic. NO PAIN AND NO BRUISING!! Just perfect results!

I went to Dr Dryden for a mini face-lift. He was very knowledable and kind. My procedure went flawlessly and a week later I am thrilled with the results. I especially liked that I was able to choose local anesthesia over general. His staff is also great.

About Me

I feel the patient should not have to wait for their appointments, so generally we can see a patient within one or 2 days, unless I am at the veterans hospital or on vacation. Similarly, we try to scheduler surgery as quickly as possible and do not l...
